Packing in Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, HEOS, 4K Upscaling plus much more, into a half-height casing, the Marantz NR1608 is an AVR tardis.

Half-pint size

If you like the idea of top quality cinema sound but are put off by the bulk of typical AV receivers, then the Marantz NR1608 is ideal. 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 Atmos AV receivers simply won't fit.

Full pint sound
Slim in size but most definitely 'full fat' in terms of sound, the NR1608 doesn't compromise on sound. The Marantz NR1608 is equipped with an advanced 32-bit DSP processing system that supports a wide range of sound formats, including Hi-Res Audio. Discrete, high current power output devices provide a sound that's dynamic, 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.

Immerse yourself in sound, with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
Dolby Atmos uses ceiling or upwards firing speakers to produce a multi-dimensional, immersive sound that's a match for the finest cinemas. DTS:X literally pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from home cinema. This highly sophisticated processor renders images in three dimensions that conventional processing can't match. It also offers other advantages such as the ability to boost the spatial effect of conventional DTS and easily adapts with your existing speaker configuration.

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 NR1608 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.

Massive connectivity – including 8 HDMI
It might be slim, but that hasn’t stopped Marantz from cramming as many sockets as possible at the back. No fewer than eight HDMI sockets let you connect up the most sophisticated home cinema systems. For music in another room there’s the choice of passive or active audio outputs – just add your choice of active or passive speakers. Another feature missing from the models below is component connectivity – ideal for connecting up older DVD players or games consoles.

High-Resolution audio compatible
As well as offering an intense movie experience, the NR1608 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 NR1608 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.

A half-sized AV receiver that makes no compromise on sound or features – the Marantz NR1608 has it all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would by 5 stars if you could Google cast to it. Very happy with the amp. As mentioned in the title, the only feature that I thought it would have but doesn't is the ability to cast to it using Android / Google. Even this is not too much of a big deal as there's Bluetooth support. We had to go with a slimline amp to fit into our furniture. I'm one for sacrificing looks in favour of functionality (I'd have changed the furniture to get the right amp) but, we gave this a shot. It was more expensive than the options we had been considering but, it was the only option that fitted (literally). I was a bit concerned that we'd be paying for the looks but, pleased to say that it also delivers on performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cinema experience at home My previous Denon all in one unit was now 12 years old with no HDMI connections! Th optical was damaged so I thought it was time for a new one. Having limited height I went for the Marantz nr1608 which was packed with features like Atmos and DTS X. So pleased to get it from Richer Sounds who were flawless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you! Excellent product and delivery! Highly recommend Marantz AV receivers. It is the third device I own since I bought the first one 17 years ago!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Amp for a medium room in a neat case. I bought this to replace a 5 year old Denon AVR X2000 which blew up. The remote, menus, set up and connections are VERY similar to the Denon with the addition of some new networking features. Installation was straight forward. The sound is quite adequate for a medium room, especially with an external powered sub woofer. The build is a bit plasticky and attracts dust. After a week the network functions stopped working and "please wait" was displayed (for hours). It's going back for an exchange tomorrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marantz NR1608 I brought this a week ago and this is my third AV purchase and the best to date. The machine is far easier to connect with a simple remote and has more musicality than both the Yamaha and Onkyo I previously owned. Coupled with Q acoustic speakers this is an excellent AV, I can recommend it.......thanks Richer sounds

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Features and great adaptability I bought this a couple of weeks ago and am very happy with this purchase. I was particularly interested in an AV which would allow me to utilise my big Amp via Preamplifier output which works very well and allows me to keep my big stand speakers cabled for Stereo but included in my surround setup. I only use it with 5 speakers but the sound is marvellous in all settings. The microphone to set it up is easy to handle and produces great results. I use the second zone to power speakers in my kitchen which works great. The built in streamer and internet radio functions are so good that I am now considering giving up a separate HDD streamer I used so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Improvement I bought this last week and after a slight mix up with the order it arrived safely. It replaces a Sony AV receiver and the improvements are noticeable. Sound is more like ageing at the cinema through a 5.1 with sub. Really pleased with the Marantz nr1608.
