     Hi there,   I have a Marantz NR1604, and I have a PS2 connected with component cables (YUV). Up until recently, that worked perfectly. For some reason, since today (probably) I suddenly have no picture anymore. I tried both component inputs, I also tried a different old console (SNES). The...
  3. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
     I advice my dad to buy a Marantz NR1604 because it fits all his needs and its a pretty decent machine for his setup. Everything is fine except I overlooked connecting the subwoofer.   He bought a Mordaunt Short MS309SW with only 2 line in connectors. I am not familiar with connecting...

     Hi everyone,   Just joined the forum. I'm looking for a new receiver to replace an old Harmon-Kardon AVR247 for use with a BenQ W1070 projector. I don't care about any internet streaming features and given the choice would rather pay for higher quality components and a slim design. Budget is...
  5. Speakers
    Hi, I have only briefly tested my Energy RC-Micro 5.1 speakers. My receiver was faulty and had to be returned. I'll be getting my new receiver (Marantz NR1604) soon. This receiver allows one to have two sets of front speakers connected. That way one can choose potentially between a 5.1 setup...

     Hello everyone! I'm currently in the middle of setting up a little 5.1 sound set. I just wanted some opinions so far. I had owned a Klipsch SW-350 sub woofer, and a pair of Klipsch Icon KB-15's for about six months, and really liked them. Especially for the price. I one day found another...

    Running analog signal from pc in stereo. The white noise is constant at any volume, unless muted. The noise seems to be quieter the lower the treble is and louder the high the treble is on the avr. I have tried different cables, different inputs, its always there. Speakers work on a different...

    Hey everyone, I currently own a Onkyo HT-RC270 that seems to be dying on me. It no longer is providing any audio and from doing some searching online it sounds like the HDMI board is shot. I've only had it for 2.5 years but unfortunately it's out of warranty so I'm doing some research into...

    Happy New Year to all. I'm building a humble 5.1 system in our living room. We just bought a new Panasonic 60" VT60 and I'm looking at the Marantz NR-1604. I'm confused and a little ignorant about 4K up scaling. The 1604 has 4k up scaling, does that mean it converts a 1080p cable signal to 4K...

    Well hello ! I really need AVS'ers expertise and knowledge in making the choice on an AVR. There are so many options out there and I think I have decided on these receivers, I am coming from an ONKYO 805 which I LOVE! never had problems with it until (user error) my wife broke the...

     Quick version:   Is it more worth it to get a better receiver with no amp, or a lesser quality (but still good) receiver with an amplifier?   Long version:   I get a great discount on Marantz units through my job and am about to upgrade my sound system a fair bit. Next paycheck, I'll be...

     I am here new and rare being not American. I have today installed Marantz 1604 (silver/gold). The installation went smooth, but the initial results are not overhelming. I expect manual loudspeaker's adjustment will bring better results. The question is then: how the Audyssey works, how the...

     I am trying to find a receiver with 2 room capability.  The big thing that I am looking for is the ability to play a 5.1 video source in zone 1 and, at the same time, play music in zone 2 through airplay or internet radio.  Many of the receivers out there seem to support playing only analog...

    Hello all, How would you guys rate these two receivers against each other? On paper, the Pioneer has 40w more per channel, other than that, the feature set seams to be on par and the price is also about the same. I spoke to one sales guy who used to sell Pioneer and now sells Marantz and he...
  18. Speakers
     I have recently changed up my speaker set due to a move to a really small apartment. My Athena F2.2 were somewhat obtrusive, even though I loved their sound. I had them paired with a Panasonic SA-XR55, and I honestly haven't heard a better combination.  I wanted to move toward something...

    I have a smart TV samsung and when I watch netflix and want to run the audio thru the receiver i have found that TV audio setting ( on receiver) is what feeds the signal, however the audio fades in and out during program. It cancels out every 20 seconds or so. I have the HDMI cable in TV...

     Hi folks, have been reading all the entries and trying to garner as much info as possible before making my purchase. Long story short - recently returned a Samsung HT system and am now wanting to use a receiver instead with my old stereo speakers (for now until I have money to upgrade).   I...
