marantz nr1602 av receiver

  1. Speakers
     Hi, Newbie here.  I'm looking to set up my first system. We have a small apartment in NYC.  I have a Marantz nr1602 AVR, a pioneer blue ray BDP-51FD, and I need a pair of speakers.    I want a pair of speakers that will sound good for listening to music (CD's, streaming, potentially LP's)...
  2. Remote Control Area
    I'm looking for advice, left to my own devices I've just about talked myself into the Harmony Smart Control for my Living Room system. One of my concerns is about apps on Smart devices; the Harmony Smart Control site talks about access to Netflix through a Gaming Console - can I assume the...

     I just discovered that my unit plays .mp3 files off my NAS at a slightly too-fast speed.  I made direct comparisons with the CD, .mp3 on a computer, and YouTube versions.  Everything but the Marantz playback is consistent with each other.   There doesn't seem to be anything online about this...

     I just purchased a new Samsung 6300 40" LED TV and a Samsung BD-5700 Blue Ray player.     The TV has a digital optical out.  The blue ray player has a digital coax out.  Of course both have HDMI ports.   I still have my, historically under-utilized, Denon AVR-1602 receiver/amp.  It only...

     Situation: > All audio/video sources are connected to the TV via HDMI. > The TV handles all switching between sources, but only includes stereo TV speakers. > I want to take the TV's digital optical audio output and put it into a receiver that will give me 5.1 audio. > I'd like the...

    I had a Yamaha 5.1 receiver for a couple years, and decided to upgrade. I thought the Yamaha was rather "bright", and from reading, it seems other people thought so too. So I looked at Marantz, the 5.1 seemed cheap, but I wanted 7.1 since a lot of new material is in 7.1 Something I did not...

    Just had a quick question if i can use Marantz NR1602 which is 8 ohm, with speakers which are 6 ohm. Im not so sure about this, but i read in an article that it is the watt per channel which is affected. So if the Marantz is 7x50, then the wattage for 6 ohm will be something more than 50 watt...

    Sorry if this is a newb question...tried searching and going through the main Audyssey thread, but couldn't find an answer. I just bought a used Marantz NR1602 and it is missing the microphone. eBay doesn't carry any Marantz branded Audyssey mics, but there are plenty of Denon ones (multiple...

    So I live in the mountains & have extremely dirty power & constant surges. I've had it kill one TV, 2 amps, a DVR & even a heat pump. Brownouts & blackouts are a common occurrence for me. To make matters worse my house is full of fluorescent lighting which contaminates the power lines from...

    Item: Marantz NR1602 Condition: New In Box, never opened Location: Holly Springs, NC 27540 Asking Price: 425 + shipping I found a great deal on this AVR, but had to pull the trigger without doing homework. I have a Pioneer Elite VSX23-TXH and after comparing the spec sheet I decided I...

    EDIT Going to give the 1602 a go since it shipped out. Hey guys, my obsession with getting the "perfect" receiver and Amazons delay in shipping is making me rethink my Marantz NR 1602 purchase. I do not need the slimline build. I have been looking at it from a pure feature and sound aspect...

    My main goal is to make a super simple setup that my children and wife can use. My main problem is that the nr1602 that I recently bought changes source in a way that i dont find rational and I need help to understand if the receiver is able to fullfil my need or if I should return it and get...

    Something like 10 years ago, I bought a Sony HT-DDW830 Home Theater System, which included five SS-MSP1 speakers, a SA-WMP1 Subwoofer, and STR-K502P receiver. After a decade and three or four moves, all I have left are the five speakers and a rear-projection TV with terrible audio. So, I am...
  16. Blu-ray Players
    Presently I use a Dune Base Player for my movies archived to file. I also use a Sony PS3 to play my discs (blu ray and dvd). I was hoping to replace both with a quality Blu Ray player that can do justice to my NAS stored files via network. My files are just the movies with the HD audio stream...

    Airplay used to work. Now, it does not. I cannot even play music via USB connector. The unit goes into Airplay mode and/or when I connect my iPhone via USB, it recognizes. But no sound. It tries to connect but does not. I can see the Airplay logo and/or I can see my iPhone on the screen when...

    I'm a newbie, and don't know much about Audio/Stereo. Hope you can help. I just purchased the Mirage MX 5.1 speakers, and the Marantz NR1602 receiver. Due to the size of my small apartment and small kids, I'd like to change the rear speakers to in-wall speakers. The front are fine, as i can...

    So I wanted to hear the difference between the DAC on the NR-1602 and the DAC on the Touch. I ran Optical from the Touch to Optical on the 1602 on the DVD input and made sure direct/pure direct were not enabled so that the 1602 DAC was active. I also ran analog outputs from the Touch to CD in...

    I'm putting together a new HT system for my living room. The space is about 12 ft deep x 20ft wide x 10 ft ceilings, but I expect the seating area to be more like 12x14 ft. I am looking for a compact, reasonably priced 7.1 receiver that can do HDMI 1.4a, multi-room, and ideally AirPlay, and...
