Now incorporating the fantastic HEOS multi-room streaming tech, the Marantz NR1609 packs more into its slim-line casing than ever.

The slim-line tonic

If you like the idea of top quality cinema sound but are put off by the bulk of typical AV receivers, then the Marantz NR1609 is just the tonic. With a height of just 105mm, it's around half the height of many of its rivals. This not only makes it easier on the eye but also allows it to be slotted in where many other AV receivers simply won't fit.

No compromise sound quality
Featuring a high-current discrete power amplifier section, you get exceptional sound and the latest formats for movies and music with identical power on all seven channels (90W per channel). The slim profile is half the height of a traditional AVR, while delivering the dynamic sound quality that defines Marantz excellence.

Latest HDMI Connectivity
Includes eight HDMI inputs and an ARC output — with one HDMI input on the front panel for quick connection — each one supporting HDCP 2.2, 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, Dolby Vision, HLG, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and BT.2020 pass-through.

 

Dolby Atmos
Feel every dimension in Dolby Atmos. Enjoy a 5.1 surround sound speaker system and two additional overhead speakers or two Dolby Atmos elevation speakers for the ultimate home theater experience — including Dolby Surround upmixer for legacy content.

 

DTS:X
DTS:X immersive audio formatting places sound where it would naturally occur in space, creating life-like, multi-dimensional audio. The included spatial remapping engine of DTS Neural:X™ offers improved immersion and heightened realism in all of your favourite movies.

 

Amazon Alexa Voice Control
Enjoy hands-free control with Amazon Alexa and your voice. Adjust the volume, skip to the next track, switch inputs for your different media players and more — “Just Ask.” Download the HEOS Home Entertainment Skill to enable Amazon Alexa voice commands for your NR1609, HEOS devices and other select Marantz products.

 

Integrated Phono Input
Easily connect your analog turntable to the receiver and enjoy the pure intent of each recording within your vinyl collection.

 

HEOS built-in - for the finest multi-room audio
HEOS multi-room music systems connect together by dual-band Wi-Fi, making them easy to set up with your existing home network. Up to 32 HEOS units can be set up at one time, ensuring even the largest of homes are covered for multi-room music. With HEOS already built-in, the NR1508 is ready to go as a single ‘zone’ without any further adaptors!

Control it all with the HEOS app
Once you’ve set up your HEOS speaker system, you can stream music effortlessly via the dedicated HEOS app. Available for Apple iOS and Android, the app not only lets you stream your stored music but also Internet radio services and popular streaming services such as Spotify, Tidal, Napster and Deezer.

Optimised for 4K UHD and HDR
This slim-line Marantz features support for HDCP 2.2, HDR, Dolby Vision and BT.2020, which means you can play UHD Blu-ray discs and stream UltraHD video. With support for HLG, it’s also compatible with the new broadcasting standard for transmitting the highest quality video images. The HDMI sockets allow 4K pass-through, for hassle free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be turned on.

High-Resolution audio compatible
As well as offering an intense movie experience, the NR1508 is also compatible with High-Resolution Audio. This offers a sound that's far more natural sounding than standard audio. The Marantz supports a wide range of Hi-Res format files including DSD (2.8/5.6MHz), FLAC, ALAC and WAV. It even supports gapless playback for music free from glitches.

Bluetooth, AirPlay, DLNA and built-in Wi-Fi for the complete networking experience
With both Bluetooth and AirPlay connectivity it's easy to connect up all your smartphones, tablets and compatible lap/desktops and stream music wirelessly. The NR1609 also comes with Wi-Fi, Internet radio and DLNA. Simply connect to your home network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi and access thousands of Internet radio sites via TuneIn as well as subscription services such as Spotify Connect. DLNA compatibility lets you stream from other sources such as your laptop or NAS drive.

Full-size sound from a slim-line case, the Marantz NR1609 is the room-friendly face of AV.
