Marantz NR1606 B-Stock 4K Ultra HD A/V Receiver with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
Discover a thrilling new dimension in surround sound with the Marantz NR1606 A/V Receiver, which features Dolby Atmos immersive surround decoding, delivering breathtaking surround sound with today’s advanced movie soundtracks. With Dolby Atmos you’ll experience the same revolutionary 3D surround sound found in premium movie theaters, with the ability to create an overhead surround soundfield that dramatically expands the sonic space. And, via a future firmware update, the NR1606 will be able to decode DTS:X soundtracks, which also deliver an immersive 3-dimensional soundspace.
A slim receiver with hefty features
Whoever coined the phrase “bigger is better” never owned a Marantz slim-line receiver. Our customers consistently rave about what big performers these low-profile receivers are, and the NR1606 comes loaded with features to satisfy home theater fans. With 7.2 channels of thrilling surround sound and all of the latest video and music features, plus convenient smartphone control, this slim unit packs everything you’d find in a larger receiver into an unobtrusive design that fits nicely on just about any shelf or stand.
Ready for 4K
Every HDMI connection on the NR1606 is HDCP 2.2 compliant, so you’ll be able to take full advantage of current and future Ultra HD content with a compatible 4K TV. You’ll enjoy remarkable clarity and definition from 4K Blu-ray discs (a format we’re excited to see later this year), online video streaming and subscription-based services, and even home movies taken with a 4K-capable camera. You don’t have to wait for more content to be released before you can enjoy ultra-high-definition picture quality — the NR1606 can upscale lower-resolution signals to 4K, so all your video sources, including older DVDs and Blu-rays, will sparkle with new life.
Take your home theater above and beyond with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
A technology that just made its debut in home theater receivers last year, Dolby Atmos creates the most lifelike, captivating surround sound of any audio format we’ve heard to date. If you’re watching a plane take off onscreen, your ears will follow it down the runway along with your eyes, and as it roars directly overhead you might swear your hair is blowing back. The NR1606 supports a 5.1.2 Atmos setup. If you’re ready to explore this new dimension in home theater sound, you’ll just need to add a pair of in-ceiling speakers to your five-channel system, or pick up a pair of Atmos enabled upward-firing speakers to project sound off your ceiling and create the height effects that make an Atmos system so riveting.
Flexible connections let you add music to a second room
If you’re happy with 5.2-channel surround sound in your living room, the NR1606’s surround back channels need not go to waste. Reassign them to power a set of speakers in a second area, so you can relax and enjoy music out on the patio while someone else watches a movie in the main zone. The receiver’s surround back channels can also be used as height channels in a Dolby Atmos setup, or to bi-amp your front speakers for more powerful sound.
Wireless connectivity gives you near-infinite listening options
With Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Apple AirPlay all built-in, you’re not likely to find yourself at a loss for great music at a moment’s notice. You’ll have quick access to your own digital music library and thousands of Internet radio stations from around the world. There’s also support for subscription-based services like Spotify, Pandora, and SiriusXM Internet radio, so you can listen to all of your on-the-go favorites through your home theater speakers.
Substantial sound quality
The NR1606 supports playback of high-resolution audio files so you can enjoy sumptuously detailed music. Marantz’s compressed audio enhancer revitalizes lower-resolution audio formats, letting you get the most out of any music source you select. And don’t be fooled by the modest amplifier rating. We hear from lots of customers that their 50-watt-per-channel Marantz receivers have plenty of power to fill small and medium-sized rooms.
Simplified setup and operation
You won’t need to spend hours poring over the owner’s manual to set up the NR1606, thanks to Marantz’s Setup Assistant. Just plug in the receiver, connect it to your TV with an HDMI cable, and follow the on-screen instructions to get your system connected in no time. Then plug the included setup microphone into the NR1606’s front panel, and the Audyssey MultEQ calibration system measures your speakers and the room’s acoustics to give you optimal sound. Smart Select buttons on the receiver and remote allow for easy source switching, and the receiver remembers sound settings for each input. The Marantz AVR Remote App for iOS and Android lets you use your mobile device as a Wi-Fi remote for easy, intuitive home theater control
Paradigm Monitor 9 Floor Standing Speakers
Paradigm has for many years been at the leading edge of sensibly priced, excellent sounding loudspeakers and the Monitor series may be the sweet spot for budget home theatre and hifi enthusiasts.
There are some significant improvements over previous generations of the Monitor Series. These include a modified phase coherent crossover, a new rear port, additional colours and a new magnetic grille, redesigned for minimum diffraction and for better fitting to front baffle via magnets. The Monitor series has been very successful for Paradigm over many years.
“When you have something that works and sells as well as our Monitor Series, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to re-invent it top to bottom,” says Paradigm Marketing Manager Mark Aling. “However, if the R&D team identifies something that can be improved, even incrementally, our philosophy is that such changes enhance the value of the product. Paradigm’s customers and dealers deserve the best value possible, and that’s what Monitor Series is all about.”
Paradigm’s SuperDrive technology, first introduced in Series V.5, remains a vital component of the Monitor Series. SuperDrive combines very high efficiency with very high output and ultra-low distortion. Combined with the tweaked crossover design, even moderately powered amplifiers allow the Monitor 9’s to deliver a higher level of performance than ever before. Compared to many other major speaker brands, Monitor V7 speakers lead the way–not just in their product category, but compared to some other speakers selling at up to twice the price! Paradigm believe that Monitor 9’s will look smarter and sound better than any other brand in its price range. We therefore invite you to bring in your favourite music and put them to the test.
Paradigm Monitor Center 3
The Center 3, like so many other Paradigm center channel speakers, is a superb product: compact yet still a true 3-way. The tweeter in the middle crosses over to the midrange below it at 3 kHz, which in turn crosses over to the pair of woofers to either side at 550Hz. Not only does this embody all the virtues of a true 3-way, but it does so with virtually no off axis combing, the woofers being very close together to begin with and voicing only up to a relatively low frequency. The midrange is “protected” from the backpressure of the woofers by being in a sealed volume of its own.
Paradigm Monitor Surround 3
The Paradigm Monitor Surround 3 is a great example of the right approach to speaker design. It uses a similar bass driver as found in the Monitor 7 design and share the same spider and voice coil former as found in the more expensive Monitor 9. The same approach applies to the Tweeter. The two 25mm Dome Tweeters used in the Surround 1 are identical in every respect to the Tweeter used in the Monitor 9. In fact, all the products in the Monitor series utilise this same Tweeter design which significantly contributes to cost-efficiencies at manufacturing level.
As soon as you see the Surround 1, you will see that Scott Bagby (Paradigm Co-Founder) takes surround sound speaker design seriously. This Canadian designed surround speaker is a bi-directional radiator with the sound being delivered to both sides, creating a superb wide and open surround sound effect. The Surround 1’s are well constructed and come complete with heavy duty gold-plated speaker wire binding posts. They should be aligned at either side of your main listening position. You will love how their sound field will wrap around the back of your room.
