What customers say about "Key Specs"
Marantz NR1710 Receiver
  • Marantz giving triumph of design and operational ease. Satisfied with this purchase.
  • Well, the Marantz NR 1710 released to be a very good receiver for limited spaces.
  • Having a mini studio I always enjoy having good quality audio equipment and when I stop on this unit I was surprised with capabilities of this one.
  • I am very happy with purchase of the 7 channel receiver in very slim and compact design.
  • It's a bit underpowered at 50W per channel. Not a big miss but I can't ignore.
Marantz NR1609 Ultra Slim 7.2 Channel AV Receiver with HEOS
  • A great amp. This is a much shallower unit with a much nicer appearance.
  • I like sound that this item play. I use "Focal Chorus" speakers in system 2.1, and music is just awesome.
  • Great surround sound on dtx neural setting with 7 speakers. Surely can recommend this unit to anyone.
  • Love the slimness of the box as I have a limited space.
  • A little too bright for my b&w speakers. Maybe needs a bit of run in before it will get better.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Marantz NR1710 Receiver
  • When you look on this small device, look like connections will be in short supply considering the size the designers had to work with. But it's surprisingly it's a lot of possible connections.
  • The receiver was connected to Acoustics Definition DF8. The sound overall pleased. Satisfied with number of possible inputs and outputs.
  • Device have a USB port on front panel, so it's easy to connect flash drive with music of video.
  • The Unit has only one HDMI OUT port so I can use all capability of my home system.
  • As for me, the unit has not enough of hdmi outputs and RCA inputs.
Marantz NR1609 Ultra Slim 7.2 Channel AV Receiver with HEOS
  • The automatic calibration works really well to give great 5.1 or 5.7 cinema sound.
  • The reciver have very simple gui wizard for installation. Microphone for self calibration works perfect.
  • This was only budget product that had a pre out for the front speakers which I have connected to Hifi amp.
  • Found the audessy mic a complee waste of time as the centre channel was completely drowned out.
  • Setting up the av amp is a frustrating experience. The amp auto turns on when the TV and Sky switch on, there is no way to override it.
