Marantz NR1506 overview

  • 1Description

The Marantz NR1506 5.2-Channel Slim Network AV Receiver offers powerful multi-channel sound, wireless audio streaming, and 4K video handling from a compact design. This receiver houses a discrete 5-channel amplifier that can deliver 50W per channel at 8 ohms. Audyssey Bronze calibration is built into the receiver to help you tailor the sound of the receiver and connected speakers to your listening environment; a setup microphone is included. Integrated AirPlay and Bluetooth allows you to wirelessly stream audio from compatible devices such as MP3 players, iPhones, and iPads. Wi-Fi and Ethernet is also available for wired high-speed connections. Internet connectivity allows you to access Internet streaming services, such as Pandora and Spotify.

The Marantz NR1506 is well-equipped for video sources as well as audio. This receiver features six HDMI inputs and an HDMI output. The HDMI interface can handle the pass-through of 4K and 3D video signals. On the audio side, this receiver supports high-resolution Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD over HDMI. For control flexibility, you can use the included remote control, or operate the NR1506 from your Android or iOS smart device with the free Marantz Remote App.

Built-in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, AirPlay, and DLNA
Equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless streaming connectivity, the NR1506 features a dual-antenna RF transceiver system for robust and error-free streaming. Connect to the internet through your home Wi-Fi network (or with a hard-wired connection via the RJ-45 Ethernet LAN port) and enjoy your favorite tracks from streaming music services such as Pandora and Spotify Connect. You can also choose from thousands of internet radio stations around the world, and enjoy music from virtually every genre.

The NR1506 also features AirPlay, so you can enjoy listening to your favorite tracks wirelessly from your favorite iOS device. The NR1506 is also DLNA 1.5 certified for compatibility with your home computer, and features an RJ-45 Ethernet port for wired connection to your network.
HDMI 2.0a Connectivity, HDCP 2.2 Compatible, and 4K Compatible
Featuring 6 HDMI 2.0a inputs, including 1 conveniently located on the front panel, the NR1506 incorporates an advanced video section that features the HDMI 2.0a specification, which includes support for 4K Ultra HD 60 Hz full rate video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling and 21:9 video pass-through, along with support for 3D content. The NR1506 also features HDCP 2.2 compatibility, a requirement for 4K Ultra HD copy-protected content.

The NR1506 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). In addition to handling 4K Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 resolution, the NR1506 also features HDR (High Dynamic Range) and Wide Color Gamut compatibility, key components of the BT.2020 4K Ultra HD video specification.
5-Channel Discrete Amplifier with Eco Mode
The power amp section features discrete high current power output devices, identical on all 5 channels for precision soundstage uniformity. Rated at 50W per channel, the NR1506 features low impedance drive capability and is compatible with 4 ohm speakers. The Eco mode provides energy savings and features an on-screen Eco meter.
Dual Subwoofer Outputs
The NR1506 features dual subwoofer outputs, which lets you connect two smaller subwoofers instead of a single, larger sub, and enjoy the benefits of response averaging by having two subs in different locations in the room. With dual subwoofers, deep bass can be smoother and more detailed, minimizing the peaks and dips that sometimes result with a single subwoofer setup.
Audyssey Bronze
With the supplied measuring microphone and mic stand, Audyssey MultEQ measures all the speakers and subwoofers in your home theater during setup, and then generates multiple high-precision DSP room acoustic correction filters. This provides smooth and natural tonal balance, regardless of the brand or model of the various speakers.

Audyssey Dynamic Volume features advanced psycho-acoustic processing to deliver clear dialog and wide range sound at reduced volume levels so that you can enjoy theater-level clarity at whatever listening level you choose. Audyssey Dynamic EQ also features advanced DSP processing to deliver full range wide-band response, even at reduced volume levels.
Easy to Setup and Use
With Marantz's Setup Assistant and Quick Start Guide, you can connect and configure your home theater system quickly and easily. The Setup Assistant features clear on-screen graphics and text that quickly and easily guides you through the setup process, optimizing critical system settings for optimized sound quality.
Marantz AVR Remote App
Download the free Marantz AVR Remote App and control the NR1506 with your smartphone, tablet or other smart device. Available in iOS and Android versions, the app lets you easily control and configure the NR1506.
Front-Panel USB Port
The front-panel USB port lets you connect your smartphone or tablet, and is compatible with USB drives and NAS devices. When the NR1506 is switched on, the USB port can simultaneously charge your device, and it features a 5V/1A output, the same output delivered by some phone chargers.
Color-Coded Speaker Terminals
For easy installation, the NR1506 features a horizontal row of loudspeaker connection terminals, and the color-coded connection system includes a set of color-coded speaker cable labels that helps ensure correct speaker cable hookup the very first time.
Slimline Design
The slimline chassis features stylish brushed hairline metalized accents along with dual control knobs for volume control and input selection. The graphical display features clear text as well as easy-to-understand icons that let you instantly see the source selected, volume level and other important information.
