Powerful 7 Channel Discrete Amplifier with Eco Mode

The NR1508's power amp section features discrete high-current output devices for superb sound with both music and movies, with, identical power on all 5 channels for precision sound. Rated at 85 watts per channel, the NR1508 features low-impedance drive capability, for excellent speaker control, and is compatible with 4 ohm speakers too. Meanwhile 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.

 



Latest HDMI Connectivity
HDR, Dolby Vision, HLG, and HDCP 2.2 Compatible

Six HDMI inputs – including one on the front panel for quick connections – feed the NR1508's advanced video section, supporting the latest HDMI specification, including 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, BT.2020 and HDR pass-through support on every input. Dolby Vision compatibility is now supported, too, with pass-through for new HDR broadcast format HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) to be enabled via a future firmware update.
HDCP 2.2 compatibility on all HDMI inputs, for 4K Ultra HD copy-protected content, ensures the NR1508 is ready for the next generation of Blu-ray disc players, set-top boxes and 4K Ultra HD streams and downloads. The NR1508 also features Audio Return Channel (ARC), which lets you stream audio from your TV via a single HDMI connection (no need for a separate digital audio cable).




Built-in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and AirPlay

The NR1508 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.




HEOS: the Perfect Solution for Wireless Multi-Room Music Streaming

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.




Marantz 2016 AVR Remote

The Marantz 2016 AVR Remote app for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets gives you complete control over the latest Marantz network AV Receivers. Along with many new features, the graphics and user interface have been completely overhauled. Control power, volume, input and settings, or switch instantly to the HEOS App to access your music content and streaming services, with full HEOS wireless multi-room control.

 

Hi-Res Audio

The NR1508 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.






Audyssey MultEQ for simple set-up

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.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ features advanced psycho-acoustic processing to deliver clear dialogue and wide-band response even at reduced volume levels, delivering cinema-level clarity whatever listening level you choose, while Audyssey Dynamic Volume avoids nasty shocks by normalising volume when content switches to commercials or announcements, creating an easier listening experience.

 



Dual Subwoofer Outputs

A single subwoofer demands optimum placement within the room for the best bass response: depending on its location, the low-frequency response at the main listening position can be uneven with audible peaks and dips. The NR1508 supports two subwoofers: used in different locations, these will even out the low-frequency response for more accurate bass anywhere in the listening area.

 



Smart TV Connectivity

Via the HDMI CEC (consumer electronics control) functionality on some Smart TVs, it's possible to control the NR1508 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.




Simple Smart Select Functions

4 Smart Select function buttons on the front panel and remote control will store your preferred setup - input, volume and Audyssey configuration - for particular sources. The push of just one button has the NR1508 perfectly configured for anything from Blu-ray or your TV set-top box to your favourite Internet radio station.





Easy To Setup,
Easy To Use

For easy installation, the NR1508's horizontal row of premium loudspeaker terminals is colour coded, with a set of matching cable-labels supplied to ensure correct hook-up. 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.


More than 60 Years of Audiophile Heritage

Founded in 1953, Marantz has a long and rich history of designing audio components embraced by music lovers and critical listeners around the world. Because Music Matters so much in our lives, the NR1508 carries on our long tradition of delivering superlative stereo listening, as well as the ultimate home theatre experience.
