HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision, and HDCP 2.2 Compatible

Featuring six HDMI inputs, including one conveniently located on the front panel, the NR1509 incorporates an advanced video section that features support for 4K Ultra HD 60 Hz full rate video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, BT.2020, HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision compatible pass-through.

The NR1509 also features Audio Return Channel (ARC), which lets you stream audio from your TV via a single HDMI connection, without the need for a separate digital audio cable.

Built-In Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and AirPlay Capability

With AirPlay, you can enjoy your favorite tracks wirelessly from your favorite iOS device.

Compatible with Amazon Alexa Voice Command

Amazon Alexa's Smart Home Skill for Entertainment Devices enables voice commands to control a range of functions on the receiver, including volume control, transport control, mute, next track, and external input switching.

Marantz 2016 AVR Remote App

The Marantz 2016 AVR Remote app is designed to give you enhanced command and control over your compatible Marantz receiver. You can control the basic functions of the NR1509 with power, volume, input, and setting adjustment. Within the app, you can switch directly to the HEOS app to access control over your music contents and streaming services, plus HEOS wireless multi-room control.

Hi-Res Audio

The NR1509 lets you discover the fidelity of high resolution audio tracks with the ability to decode ALAC, FLAC, and WAV lossless files up to 24-bit/192 kHz, as well as DSD 2.8 and 5.6 MHz tracks (the audiophile format of SACD) via the front-panel USB port and network sources. You can also listen to other popular file types, such as MP3.

Audyssey MultEQ for a Simplified Setup

Via the supplied measuring microphone, Audyssey MultEQ measures all the speakers in your home theater during setup, including the subwoofer, and then generates multiple DSP room acoustic correction filters, helping to provide a smooth, natural tonal balance. Audyssey Dynamic EQ features psycho-acoustic processing to deliver full-range clear dialogue and wide-band response, even at reduced volume levels, for enhanced clarity. At the same time, Audyssey Dynamic Volume avoids jumps in volume when what you're watching switches from content to commercials or announcements, creating an easier listening experience.

Dual Subwoofer Outputs

The NR1509 supports two subwoofers; used in different locations within the main room, these will even out the low-frequency response for enhanced bass accuracy nearly 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 NR1509 with the TV's remote handset. With the receiver's "HDMI control" set to ON, select "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.

Smart Select Functions

There are four Smart Select function buttons on the front panel and the remote control; each one will store your preferred setup – input, volume, and Audyssey configuration – for a particular source. With the push of just one button, you can have the NR1509 configured for anything from Blu-ray or your TV's set-top box to your favorite Internet radio station.

Designed for Ease of Setup and Use

The graphical on-screen display is designed to be clear and easy to understand as it guides you through the setup process. The Setup Assistant and Quick Start Guide combine to help ease setup, optimizing critical settings for enhanced sound quality, whatever your configuration.

Hi! Does this receiver turns on and stays on when you plug it in the wall? In other words can we control its power state with a smart plug?
Asked by: Davy
Cannot be controlled with a smart plug but can be powered on with the Marantz AVR Control or HEOS apps. App runs on both Apple and Android.

Does this unit have good bass response?

Does this unit have good bass response?
Asked by: pete
I do not want to come off poorly, but most decent quality receivers will have good bass response. The issue is far more often with the speaker(s). IMHO most programming sounds best when things are smooth over the entire range. The best way to get good bass response is to have a decent quality speaker (full range) and think about adding a powered subwoofer. Even a modest subwoofer can really add some punch to your system. As for the receiver, it is a very well made, well spec'd unit.
