I've been a Denon owner since the early 90's. My current AVR-3808CI is having HDMI problems so I think I'm just going to replace it. Wondering if anyone has an opinion how this would compare to the Denon, sound-wise for movies. Have a complete Difinitive 7.1 system in a 20x20 room.

My gear: Marantz SR6012 • Parasound HCA-855 • Definitive Technology SM350 • Definitive Technology CLR2300 • Definitive Technology SuperCube II • Definitive Technology DT8LCR • Polk Audio V65 • Panamax Max5300 • AC Infinity Aircom S8 • AppleTV 4K • Samsung 65JS8500

The 1604 uses the lower version of Audyssey MultEQ rather than MultEQ XT used in the 5007/6007/7007 models and your 3808CI. Also note the current successor to the 3808CI is the flagship 4520CI.

If so, then going with the NR-1603 over the NR-1604 would be a better idea in my personal opinion.

Slimline for those that are looking for a smaller profile AVR for non hard to drive speakers. The 5006/6006 models use the higher version of Audyssey MultEQ XT. Other than the differences between the 1603:1604 I noted in an earlier post, the audio quality should be the same.

Thanks, JDSmoothie, for listing and clarifying the additional features the 1604 has over the 1603 -- more than I thought. Forgot about the 4K; guess the 4K upscale/pass-though alone is enough to justify a new model - at least that seems to be the thinking with most major-brand AVR manufacturers.

Hi there, new to the forum, this is my first post.
I'm doing a research for my first "real" receiver and the Marantz NR1604 is a serious candidate. What really got my attention:

- power consumption is just 220w, all others I researched, like Denon X2000, Yamaha RX-V675, HArman Kardon AVR1710 are 500w or more.
- Zone 2 audio
- 12V trigger, so I can connect an automatic speaker switch with a Sonos Connect AMP unit and use the same pair of speakers of the receiver.
- And the other usual stuff the others have like Airplay, iPod connection, 4K

Regarding the additional features, correct if I'm wrong but I think the 1603 amp is 50w 2ch driven and the new 1604 is 50w all channels driven. At least that's what I understood looking in the spec sheet:

http://us.marantz.com/DocumentMaster/US/NR1604SpecificationSheet.pdf

In "Marantz Audio Advantages", second item in the list is "All-discrete, equal power, high current power amplifiers" , and on the second page it lists 50W for each channel separately:

Audio Section
Power amplifier
Rated output:
Front:
50W+50W(8Ω/ohms,20Hz–20kHzwith0.08%T.H.D.)
70W+70W(6Ω/ohms,1kHzwith 0.7%T.H.D.)
Center:
50 W (8 Ω/ohms, 20 Hz – 20 kHz with 0.08 % T.H.D.)
70 W (6 Ω/ohms, 1 kHz with 0.7 % T.H.D.)
Surround:
50W+50W(8Ω/ohms,20Hz–20kHzwith0.08%T.H.D.)
70W+70W(6Ω/ohms,1kHzwith 0.7%T.H.D.)
Surround back:
50W+50W(8Ω/ohms,20Hz–20kHzwith0.08%T.H.D.)
70W+70W(6Ω/ohms,1kHzwith 0.7%T.H.D.)

AVRs will generally spec out at the mfr's quoted power rating when only using 1 or 2 speakers at most so in that sense the 1603 and 1604 are exactly the same in reference to power. Also note that the power consumption you listed is not average, rather the average power consumption for most AVRs will only be 60-90W.

Thanks, jdsmoothie.
So what you're saying is that when I use a 5.1 channel setup the power delivered to the speakers will be less than 50w?

From what I read until now, power specs can be very misleading, and I really don't know if 50w will be enough.
I'm looking for quality over loudness. If 50w can deliver, that's fine for me.

I also read that Marantz usually has more conservative tests, which leads to more modest specs on paper but it delivers as good amount of power as the others equivalent models from other brands. Is this correct?


About the average power consumption, is 60 to 90w true to full size receivers too, like the ones I mentioned before?

Correct. Likely roughly 40W, although note that an 8-ohm speaker of average sensitivity (ie. 87db+) only draws < 5W/CH on average so the 1603/1604 should be more than sufficient.

I really love the look of this receiver.

Silver and slimline would look great in my setup.

Currently have a Yamaha 673 and a set of B&W M1 speakers. Would the Marantz give a similar performance to the Yamaha?

With your 2.0 setup and at average listening levels likely yes noting that the M-1 speakers are fairly inefficient. Although not an issue in your 2.0 setup, YPAO cannot EQ the subwoofer so if you add a subwoofer at some point, the 1604 would perform better as Audyssey MultEQ in the 1604 can EQ the subwoofer.

Just an FYI for USA readers ... the "silver" versions are only available outside of the USA, rather only "black" is available in the USA.

Sorry, by set I meant the MT50 5.1 package.

I just love the slim sliver design. Just don't want looks to compromise performance.

Than as I previously indicated, the 1604 should provide better audio fidelity due to the fact that your sub will be EQ'd, however, you "may" be limited as far as being able to reach "raise the roof" volume levels depending on the size of your room given the 1604 is only 50W.

Thanks again.

I'm sure it would go plenty loud enough. I rarely get the Yamaha above -20db.

Just reading the specs for the 1504 and the 1604. Doesn't seem to be much in it.


1604:

number of poweramps 7

Power Output (8 ohm, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08% 2ch Drive) 50 W

Power Output (6 ohm, 1 kHz, 0.7% 2ch Drive) 70 W

Power Output (6 ohm, 1 kHz, 1% 1ch Drive) 90 W


1504:

number of poweramps 5

Power Output (8 ohm, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08% 2ch Drive) 50 W

Power Output (6 ohm, 1 kHz, 0.7% 2ch Drive) 60 W

Power Output (6 ohm, 1 kHz, 1% 1ch Drive) 85 W


I presume with the B&W M1 5.1 speakers I would only use 8 ohm anyway so there would be no real performance increase with the more expensive 1604?

Performance wise no as they both use Audyssey MultEQ but feature wise there are a few additions:

1604 vs.1504
  • +1 HDMI input
  • Comp IN (2), Comp OUT (1)
  • +2 Channels
  • Powered Zone 2
  • Zone 2 pre-outs
  • Analog--> HDMI conversion
  • Web Control (w/SAVE/LOAD of config file)
  • 4k upscaling and pass through
  • All Zone Stereo (passes HDMI audio playing in main zone to Zone 2)
  • 12V trigger

Thanks, just bought a silver 1504. I certainly don't need the extra features the 1604 offers.

Amazon sell them over here so if it doesn't compare well to my Yamaha 674 it can go back easily.

My 1504 has arrived. First question is does this amp take a banana plug?

It isn't obvious if the cap (if it is a cap) on the binding posts pop out?

If so, how do you get them off?

They likely do, but keep in mind that AFAIK, the use of banana plugs is illegal in the UK which is why mfr's must plug the holes.

I knew the banana connector holes were plugged in the UK's rendition of the speaker connectors on these receivers (and apparently can be removed), but I never realized it was because of some kind of legal prosciption -- how bizarre ?! What is the reasoning? It's not like these are pro-level outputs that are likely to electrocute anyone.

Anywhose, in all my years here on AVS, I never noticed the "thumbs-up" button. Almost 35,000 posts since 2007? -- that has got to be some kind of record. Way "THUMBS-UP", jdsmoothie !!!

PS. Obviously, I still don't even know how to give a "thumbs-up" -- maybe next time . . . frown.gif

There are quite a lot of adjustments in the 1604 when you delve into the menu and once set up, it sounds quite good.

I setup my old Yammy 2300 as a preamp and plugged it into the preout and the additional fronts made a huge difference to how the 1604 sounds.

Audyssey 7.1, sub and additional front preouts make it sound much bigger than it really is. Preouts also make the stereo sound much fuller for music and internet radio.

I presently have the NR1602 and find it is a rather capable little AVR. I have exactly two gripes and perhaps someone here can lend me their expertise.

1) The remote control is overly messy with lots of buttons. Would the NR1603/4 remote work with the NR1602?

2) Usually, I can turn on the TV via TiVo remote or original remote and get the Marantz to turn on via CEC. At times, I lose that type of connection though turning off the TV will turn off the Marantz. Any idea why I have this issue now? Is there a setting that needs to be re-initialized??

3) I would consider giving my NR1602 to a family member and go to the 1603 or 1604 if there is any real advantage - anyone have thoughts on whether the NR1603 or 4 would be a real upgrade?
The speakers I use are GoldenEar AON 3 (no sub due to living in apartment complex). How would the NR1604 upscale compare to say - the Oppo 103?

My system consists of the NR1602, Oppo103 blu ray player, TiVo 3, a rather large library of my archived music and movies on NAS and my TV - Panasonic VT50 Plasma.
NAS files - Music - mix of 256 AAC, Lossless Apple format from CD and FLAC 96/24. Movies - mostly M2TS 1080p/HD audio stream.

Thanks in advance if anyone could lend me their experience and constructive thoughts

If HDMI Control is set to ON then the HDMI-CEC feature either works or it doesn't often depending on the components connected. The Oppo video upscaling is likely to be superior to the upscaling in most any brand of AVR. If you want to upgrade, you should consider moving up to a 5008 which upgrades to the more advanced MultEQ XT.

Thanks for the response. I somewhat figured out that the Oppo would do better upscaling but just the same, doesn't hurt to ask as from time to time, makers of AVRs let higher end items trickle down into their lower end models. The point about the MultEQ XT seems about right.

Would you have any idea as to whether the remote on the 1604/3 would work with the 1602? Whether I upgrade or not, I still need to contend with the less NR1602's remote and ideally replace it (especially if I do end up giving it to a family member as it is way to off putting with its vast array of tiny buttons).

again thanks and hopefully others can join in and I look forward to their advice.

Rather than contending with the stock remote, replace the 1602 remote with one of the many Harmony remotes ..... the 650 is a very reasonably priced model that uses a LCD screen for easier use.

+1 or maybe a Denon AVR-3313CI

I would have loved a SR7008 but could not justify the cost as cant have it that loud unless everyone goes out. Will get a bigger amp when kids are older.

For now the NR1604 will have to do. It goes pretty loud with the Yammy as a preamp as it is.

Note that the Yammy is setup as the "amp" while the 1604 is the pre-amp, and also that the 7008 would only get about 3db louder than the 1604 alone which is the difference when most folks are able to detect a noticeable change in volume level, while using the Yammy (rated at 110W), there would be no noticeable change at all compared to the 7008, so you're not missing anything as far as power goes, rather the primary upgrade would be the significantly better version of Audyssey MultEQ XT32 on the 7008.

I also the prospected owner of this receiver. My old Yamah has been serving me well for the last 7 years but I think it's time to upgrade since I need the HDMI switching, USB for iPhone/iPad and also AirPlay.

I love NR1604 slim, sleek, and compact form factor. But I'm worrying about the trade off. What's the catch here mainly?
Feature wise it's nothing less than their big brothers. But there must be something lacking for the slimness.
As long as the home audio concerns, I always go big. Going slimmer is a bit .. concerning.

Will it be powerful enough to drive my Diamond 9.6 along with 10.CM center and all the surround?
Thank you.

At only 50W it provides < 1/2 the power output of the SR models although is still more than sufficient to power fairly efficient (87db+) @ 8-ohm 5 speaker setup. Those 9.8's appear to be 6-ohm @90db efficiency so at average volume levels you should be fine with the 1604.

Hey, thanks for the tip. I just picked up one off ebay for $30 - great piece of kit.
