All the performance, all the convenience, and all the versatility you’ve come to expect from the larger Marantz AV Receivers - but this time in a highly elegant, super-slim cabinet that’s just 10.5cm high, to perfectly complement your DVD or Blu-ray player. The NR1501 has on-board decoders for both standard and high definition audio such as DTS-HD and TrueHD, it also effortlessly converts analogue video signals to HDMI. Its four HDMI 1.3a inputs handle a host of digital sources, so you can easily hook-up your satellite box, BD/DVD player, game console and camcorder all at the same time. And there is just one HDMI cable connected to your screen. What’s more, you don’t need to spend time selecting the correct input on your TV - the NR1501 does it all for you. Fans of portable media players like iPods will love the front audio input for easy connection. The loudspeaker set-up can be as simple as a stereo system or (when front speakers are not powerful enough) a 2.1 with additional subwoofer for the bass and special effects. You can even extend it to a 5.1 or even 7.1 system, filling the room with spectacular surround sound and converting your living room into a sensational cinema. What’s more, the OSD menu and MRAC auto set-up using a microphone makes installation fast and easy - even for non-technical users.
