Product Description

Details

A thrilling high-quality AV receiver occupying minimal space: that's the NR1608. High current discrete power amplifiers on all 7 channels deliver astonishing power and clarity, and it delivers immersive 3D surround sound thanks to both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X decoders, yet at just a little more than 3 inches tall it’s slim enough to slip into any TV cabinet. It’s fully compatible with the latest HDMI and HDCP 2.2 specifications on all 8 HDMI inputs, and will pass all the latest video formats – 4K 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Colour sub-sampling, BT.2020, HDR and Dolby Vision from Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, games consoles and streamed/download 4K Ultra HD content to an Ultra HD TV or projector.

For future HDR broadcast content, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) pass-through will also be supported via a firmware update. Bluetooth and AirPlay can stream music directly from portable devices, while HEOS wireless multi-room music integration allows the NR1608 to become part of a complete home-wide music system. Explore and play your own music library, online streaming music services and thousands of Internet radio stations, using the free HEOS app. The "Marantz 2016 AVR Remote" app is also available free from the Apple app store, GooglePlay and the Amazon app store.

Dolby Atmos

Feel every dimension in Dolby Atmos. Dolby Atmos transports you into the story with moving audio that flows all around you with breathtaking realism. Enjoy a 5.1 surround sound speaker system and 2 additional overhead speakers or 2 Dolby Atmos elevation speakers for the ultimate home theatre experience - including Dolby Surround upmixer for legacy content.

DTS:X
 
DTS:X

DTS:X immersive audio places sound where it would occur naturally in space, creating a lifelike, multi-dimensional audio experience in the home. The improved immersion and heightened realism draw you into the world of your favourite movies. The included spatial remapping engine, DTS Neural:X, gives your movie, game and music collections a new lease on life! DTS:X brings the theatre home.

High Resolution Audio
 
High Resolution Audio

The NR1608 lets you discover the incredible fidelity of high resolution audio tracks via the front panel USB port or network sources, with the ability to decode ALAC, FLAC and WAV lossless files up to 24-bit/192-kHz, as well as DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz tracks (the audiophile format of SACD). You can also listen to other popular file types, such as MP3.

ECO Mode
 
ECO Mode

The Eco mode provides energy savings: it features an on-screen Eco meter, while it’s also possible to use the receiver in power-saving mode, either reducing the maximum output power or adopting low-power strategies at more modest settings – and all without any effect on the superb sound quality.

 

HEOS Wireless Multi-Room Music Streaming


With built-in HEOS technology, the NR1608 becomes a key component of the HEOS wireless multi-room system. Add more HEOS speakers, and enjoy your music anywhere and everywhere around your home, all controlled via the free HEOS app. Play the same song in every room, or a different song in every room.

Multiple streaming services can be played on the NR1608 or any other connected HEOS devices, including Spotify, TuneIn Internet radio, Sound Cloud, Tidal, Napster or Deezer (*). You can also stream music from your phone, USB stick, or local network drives, with favourites and playlist functions supported. *Availability differs by area, subscription may be required.

Smart TV Connectivity
 
Smart TV Connectivity

Via the HDMI CEC (consumer electronics control) functionality on some Smart TVs, it's possible to control the NR1608 with the TV's remote handset. With the receiver's "HDMI control" set to ON, set "Smart Menu" receiver control functions and the TV's Smart Menu home screen will provide you direct access to source and surround mode selections, the main setup menu, and Smart Select configuration presets.

Multi-Source / Multi-Room
 
Multi-Source / Multi-Room

Whatever your family's entertainment needs, the NR1608 delivers: you can enjoy 5.2-channel surround sound in the main room, and at the same time play stereo sound from another source in another part of the house. Simply connect a pair of speakers to the multi-room amplified outputs, or hook up a separate stereo amp and speakers to the Zone 2 pre-outs.

Audyssey MultEQ
 
Audyssey MultEQ

Using the measuring microphone and stand supplied, Audyssey MultEQ measures the speakers in your home theatre, including the subwoofer, and then applies multiple high precision DSP room acoustic correction filters, providing the smoothest, most natural tonal balance - regardless of the brand(s) or model(s) of speaker.

Dual Subwoofer Outputs
 
Dual Subwoofer Outputs

A single subwoofer demands optimum placement within the room for the best bass, to even out peaks and dips in response. The NR1608 supports two subwoofers: used in different locations, these will give a smoother low-frequency response for more accurate bass anywhere in the listening area.

 

Built-in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and AirPlay


The NR1608 is equipped with an advanced dual antenna system for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi streaming, for a robust connection even in congested urban environments. Apple's AirPlay lets you listen to your favourite tracks wirelessly from iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads.

Easy To Setup - Easy To Use
 
Easy To Setup - Easy To Use

The AVR's clear graphical on-screen display has an exclusive Setup Assistant, combining with the Quick Start guide to provide guidance and optimise critical settings for the best possible sound quality, whatever your configuration.

Simple Smart Select Functions
