I tried it after I saw your post. Worked fine in Chrome both on my Mac and Windows 7 PC.
However, 30 mins later it stopped working again, on both machines. And then it's working again occasionally. I wonder if it's a server problem on their end, or else a DNS problem, but I don't have a DNS problem with other sites (including Marantz).
Anyhoo, judging by the specs in their comparison page, for my living room the S710W seems fine for me, but for my home theatre, I might want to step up to the S910W, for the upscaling and for the more robust amps. I'm running Paradigm Studio 60 and Studio CC with SVS PB13-Ultra in the front, with some bookshelf Paradigm speakers in the rear.
OTOH, in terms of power I can probably get away with the S710W since I typically don't run my system uber loud, and I've been fine with my ancient Sony STR-DG800, which I'm told isn't that strongly powered (despite their advertised specs).
3. Only the D+M 2015 models support HDMI 2.0 + HDCP 2.2. The NR1504 is a 2013 model.
Yeah, but Marantz has kept the NR1504 around as their entry level. It's still listed as a current model. I guess they wanted something to hit that lower price point, but didn't create something like the Denon S510 for whatever reason.
