If you like the idea of top quality cinema sound but are put off by the bulk of typical AV receivers, then the Marantz NR1510 is perfect for you. Standing just 104mm tall, it's around half the height (or less) 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.
100% sound quality
Slim in size but most definitely 'full fat' in terms of sound, the NR1510 doesn't compromise on sound. The Marantz NR1510 is equipped with an advanced 32-bit DSP processing system that supports a wide range of sound formats, including Hi-Res Audio, right up to DSD 5.6. Discrete, high current power output devices provide a sound that's punchy, low in distortion and perfectly balanced around all your speakers. The Pure Direct feature aims to give you the cleanest sound quality by bypassing non-essential circuits. Thanks to MDAX2 you can even restore the quality of compressed MP3 audio – giving greater ‘life’ and ‘depth’ of sound.
Voice control via Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri devices
Controlling a sophisticated AV receiver like this can be baffling for some members of the family, which is why Marantz have made it compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri devices. Simply download the HEOS Home Entertainment Skill app and then just ask Alexa or the Google Assistant to perform basic functions. Using the Apple Home App, Siri voice control from your Apple iOS device brings added functionality over AirPlay 2 – including grouping devices.
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 NR1510 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, Android and Amazon Kindle, 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.
Support for Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG
Ideal for pairing with your quality video sources, the NR1510 is compatible with an extensive range of formats. It supports Dolby Vision, HDR10, Dolby, HLG and HDCP 2.2, which means you can play UHD Blu-ray discs and stream UltraHD video in the highest quality. The HDMI sockets allow 4K pass-through, for hassle free switching and viewing without the receiver needing to be on.
Connect more – including a turntable
As well as the six HDMI inputs, the NR1510 has a wide range of connectivity. Both optical and coaxial digital inputs are ideal for connecting older devices or upgrading the sound from a compatible CD/Network player. Three analogue inputs are perfect for Hi-Fi components, with the dedicated MM phono input ideal for plugging in a turntable.
Bluetooth, AirPlay 2, DLNA and built-in wi-fi for the complete networking experience
With both Bluetooth and AirPlay 2 connectivity it's easy to connect up all your smartphones, tablets and compatible lap/desktops and stream music wirelessly. The NR1510 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 vTuner as well as subscription services such as Spotify Connect Premium Spotify account required). DLNA compatibility lets you stream from other sources such as your laptop or NAS drive.
Packed with features, not bulk, the Marantz NR1510 delivers without dominating your room.
The Monitor Audio C165 ceiling speaker gives Hi-Fi speaker quality from a discreet design.

Fitted with an all-new aluminium bass cone, the best compact sub just got better, with the REL Tzero MKIII.
Ideal for smaller rooms and apartments, the Tzero MKIII gives you the famous REL bass depth and timing, but without the bulk and ultimate volume of their larger models. It makes the perfect complement to a small pair of hi-fi speakers, a compact AV system or even a soundbar/base with subwoofer output.
All-new aluminium driver for punchier sound
Always a hard-hitter for its size, the MKIII version of this classic sub is now fitted with an improved woofer, for even punchier bass. With its aluminium cone, the woofer combines the ideal talents of rigidity and light weight. This makes it fast and responsive, meaning you get a bass with a spring in its step, for perfect rhythm and timing.
Bass power for smaller rooms
Although best suited to smaller, rather than larger rooms, the Tzero delivers impressive bass depth for its size. Featuring a 100 watt, Class D amplifier, this subwoofer easily improves the response of most standmount speakers and even some smaller floorstanders, too.
Ideal for twin sub installations
Many of today's AV receivers offer the ability to connect two subwoofers in a .2 configuration. As two smaller subs provide a more even spread of sound and greater agility, this can be a tempting option for many. The Tzeros work especially well when paired, and make a great choice for stereo systems. Place a sub next to each speaker and be astounded by the bass improvement. With your main speakers freed from bass duties, they can dedicate themselves entirely to the mid-range, enhancing the vocal performance as a further benefit.
Separate inputs for Hi-Fi and AV
If you use your subwoofer with both home cinema and hi-fi, the REL Tzero is ideal. Whereas films often require the sub to be turned up for the greatest thrills, music demands a more subtle approach. For this reason, the REL Tzero MKIII has separate inputs for high and low level sources, and separate level controls for stereo and LFE .1 surround. This means you get the ideal levels for both hi-fi and AV, without having to change the settings.
Boasting REL's legendary build quality and finish, the Tzero has to be one of the most attractive-looking subwoofers in its class. With 5-coats of paint, the deep, piano gloss finish in black or white looks sumptuous. Smart aluminium feet keep it lifted safely off the floor.
For a compact sub with a powerful punch, the REL Tzero MKIII is the best yet.
