More Information

Acoustic power in a small package

  • The Marantz NR 1607 AV receiver's 7.2-channel platform can drive most types of loudspeakers, even in large rooms. Plus, it boasts a slim-lined body to match seamlessly with the rest of your AV components.
  • All amp channels are configured identically so sound is amplified equally to all the receiver channels. With 50 watts (8 ohms) of power per channel, enjoy dynamic sound. Feel like you've been transported to a live concert with sweet sound filling your ears while you enjoy the cushy comforts of home.

Play a variety of media formats

  • The receiver's built-in sound format decoder for Dolby Atmos and DTS UHD offers 7-channel processing capability, so you can make surround sound happen with strategically placed speakers (additional components sold separately). Follow the sound of someone's voice or a car zooming by as if things were happening right next to you. DTS:X support will be enabled following a future firmware update.
  • The receiver processes 4K video quality and high frame rates for 4K/60Hz videos. It also upscales to near Ultra HD from HD or even SD sources, giving low-resolution signals a facelift for noticeably better-looking views whether you're watching wildlife in action on a nature show or a video of your favourite musician rocking it out on stage.
  • The receiver is compliant with HDCP 2.2 (High-bandwidth Digital Copy Protection) technology, ensuring you can enjoy future 4K content, including 4:4:4 Pure Color subsampling, HDR, 3D, and BT.2020 video standards.
  • DSD high-resolution audio support allows the NR1607 to decode AIFF, FLAC, and WAV lossless files at up to 24-bit/192-kHz and ALAC/Apple Lossless at up to 96kHz/24bit. Play these file types through the front panel USB port or simply stream them from any network sources.

Wireless convenience

  • Bluetooth and Wi-Fi let you stream music or video without being tethered to your device, while dual-band antennas ensure a strong, reliable wireless signal.
  • The Marantz 2016 AVR Remote app lets you control the receiver from your mobile device from your compatible iOS, Amazon, or Android device. Control4 certified home automation capabilities allow you to seamlessly integrate the NR1607 into your smart home theatre setup.
  • Tap into a slew of online content from internet radio, Spotify, Sirius XM, and more (required subscriptions sold separately). With AirPlay, you can easily stream content from your Apple devices, like your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, without losing audio quality.
  • The receiver is DLNA certified to allow for a fast, stable, and easy-to-use connection to your home network so you can share music, photo, and video files from your PC or HD recorder.

Easy setup

  • The included Quick Start Guide is easy to follow and provides the guidance you need to properly configure your AV components, as well as choose the right settings for the best sound quality.
  • Eight HDMI inputs (1 conveniently located on the front panel) and 1 HDMI output allow you to hook up multiple sources at the same time. Connect speakers so you can sing along in peace to your favourite soundtrack in one room, while others can watch a movie from another source in a different room.
  • Built-in Audyssey MultiEQ through the included microphone and mic stand helps deliver smooth, balanced audio from your speakers, including the subwoofer. Pump up the volume for your music or movie and enjoy theatre-level clarity, even at the lower volume levels.

Marantz let me down

Worked great for 5 months. Then the output card burned out. I will try Onkyo now.

Thanks to the 3 years warranty

This is my third NR in less than a year and a half. The firts one i had was a NR1606 and started making a frying sound on the left chanel after a year. Marantz sent me a refurb NR1606 within 5 days after i called them about this problem. Then after only one week, this one decided to mute permanantly. No more sound : ( : ( Marantz sent me a third one. This time it was a refurd NR1607. Got it within 5 days also. It came with a broken antenna but i decided to keep it anyway. So far after about 2 months, it's still working perfectly. I cross my fingers this one will last for at least 5 or 6 years. Aside these problemes, this little AVR is pretty awsome. The sound comming out of this thing is amazing on my 7.2 set-up. Plus, it has all the latest features that other big brands and much more expensive AVRs have but in a neat and beautifull small package. I bought this unit because of the size and reviews i had read but most of all, for the Marantz legendary quality reputation. Comming from a Pioneer that lasted me 7 years, i was a bit disapointed, but thanks to the 3 years warranty and a very good service from the D&M Group, i have more faith in the product now.

Awesome quality and functionality

Just bought this receiver online, I was waiting for a potential price drop but couldn't wait any longer. I'm not even sorry for paying full price for it. The jump in quality from my previous pioneer vsx-520 is insane. Now running a full 7.2 setup with front height speakers and wow this thing delivers!! Everything just sounds so much more solid across the whole spectrum and the functionality and ease of use is awesome. Everything is on-screen in terms of setup making it so much easier to navigate and tweak to your desired settings. Granted I'm using it in a relatively small space which is the main reason for wanting a slim line receiver in the first place, but I think this would still hold up well in a medium to large space. Overall awesome product, definitely happy with my purchase.
