Marantz introduced three new Network A/V Receivers, signaling the beginning to their long-awaited 2015 home theater line-up. TThe NR1606 and NR1506 are exclusively built for design and space-conscious home theater enthusiasts, while the new SR5010 comes with features for more advanced users. All come with the latest in audio and video technology, paired with wireless connectivity, total ease-of-use and energy-conscious performance.
The new Slim Design NR1506 Network A/V Receiver includes a five-channel amplifier with 50W per channel, delivering powerful sound with strong punch and delicate detail at the same time. Thanks to its built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities, the NR1506 offers a wide variety of music sources, such as Internet Radio, Pandora, SiriusXM, Spotify Connect and AirPlay. It can play music files stored on a PC or NAS drive via DLNA. Almost any file is possible including high resolution FLAC HD, ALAC, WAV192/24 and even DSD. The iPod digital-compatible USB input on the front panel rounds up the various connectivity options.
The video section fully supports 4K Ultra HD high resolution video, along with the latest HDMI 2.0a specification including 4K 60Hz pass-through and HDCP 2.2 compatibility that is required for 4K copy-protected content. It also features HDR (High Dynamic Range) and Wide Color Gamut compatibility. There are six HDMI inputs including one conveniently located on the front panel, all of which support HDCP 2.2 compatibility, enough to connect modern HDMI devices such as Blu-ray players or streaming set-top-boxes. Setup is easy with the help of the on-screen Setup Assistant, and famous Audyssey MultEQ room calibration. A Marantz Remote App is available for both Android and iOS.
Sharing the same beautiful design, the step-up model NR1606 comes with even more features for advanced users. The NR1606 is equipped with Dolby Atmos decoding and Dolby Surround up-mixing to deliver captivating multidimensional sound through height speakers or Dolby Atmos enabled up-firing speakers. It will also support the new object based surround format from DTS DTS:Xvia a firmware update later this year.
The NR1606 further offers an advanced video section to upscale analog and digital source material up to Full HD 1080p or even 4K Ultra HD for the ultimate viewing experience. There are 8 HDMI 2.0a inputs and full support for second zone audio.
Being the first model in the standard 2015 Marantz full-size line-up, the SR5010 7.2ch Network A/V Receiver packs 100W of power per channel and comes with the same features as its counterparts, but is another step up on the audio side in particular. The whole internal circuit further enhances audio quality by delicately handling all signals via the Marantz-own HDAMs in Current Feedback topology, an approach found on the company’s Reference Series.
Another step-up in flexibility becomes obvious by a second HDMI output to connect a projector and a TV at the same time. A 7.2 channel pre-out section and the RS232 connection makes the SR5010 very attractive for custom installation purposes.
All three new Marantz A/V Receivers will be available in July/August.
