Marantz New Receiver - NR1508 With Wi-Fi & Great Streaming Services

Marantz’s new receiver comes with a small design that packs a high number of features. Unfortunately, this device doesn’t come with Dolby Atmos support.

Marantz is one of the best manufacturers when it comes to receivers. We must say that this company is a tough competitor for Yamaha, which is probably the leader of this market.

Back in 2009, Marantz has released its first slim-line NR receivers, which turned out to be a real success.

We think that with this line, Marantz managed to revolutionize the market. Moreover, customers have also started to wonder why receivers need such a huge body after all.

But, for a couple of years, it seemed that other manufacturers refused to copy Marantz’s design and remained at the same clunky and big receivers.

However, we must say that this year, Pioneer and Onkyo decided to copy this design and have released their first slim-line units.

But, we must say that these units aren’t as well-built or powerful as the one that Marantz has released. These days, this company came up with a new unit on the market.

We are talking about the new NR1508. With this new release, we see that Marantz remains an original and attractive company. For its size, we must say that the new NR1508 is the most feature-filled receiver on the market for its size.

This new unit comes with 4K HDR support on the HDMI ports, which is a real attraction on the market. Another great thing about this unit is that it is the first one that comes with Denon’s HEOS multi-room music system integrated.

So, yes, the new Marantz NR1508 offers a really great performance for its size. Customers will be able to buy this receiver at the price of 550 dollars, which is a really good price for a receiver like this.

Moving to the design, we must say that after 7 years, this company remains very original. So, this new receiver is not an exception from this rule.

The new Marantz NR1508 has the same NR look, but with a few minor changes. We are talking about a black aluminum front panel that has rounded edges. Moreover, customers will find two big knobs in front, one for source selection, and another for volume.

 Its body measures just 4.1 inches high, which is a huge difference compared with Sony’s receiver that measures 6.1 inches high. However, at this body size, the company still managed to add a large blue LED display.

Unfortunately, the menu is still old and unattractive. But, Marantz is not the only company that has this old menu, because Sony and Yamaha have the same.

The new Marantz NR1508 also comes with a remote, which we find to be very attractive. This clicker comes with easy access to all of the unit’s main functions, which is very good.

As for features, this receiver is considered to be the first that comes with the HEOS multiroom music system. Moreover, customers will receive Bluetooth and Airplay features, while on the front they will see a USB port that will allow them to add a flash drive or a phone.
