Features of Marantz NR-1604
Looking for an extra shot of adrenaline with your action flicks and extreme video games? Then you need the power and precision that only separates can deliver. Marantz's sleek, sophisticated AV7005 preamp-processor and its companion MM7055 5 x 140-watt amplifier supply the rush you're after.
The AV7005 includes Anchor Bay's ABT2015 10-bit processor. This sophisticated video engine provides exceptional performance and convenience. You can connect all your video sources, from a new 3D-capable Blu-ray player to an old VCR. The Marantz ensures all the signals look their best, even the non-HD ones, and sends them to your HDTV via a single HDMI connection.
Control music from your iPod® or iPhone® through the front USB port. An Ethernet port lets you connect to your network and play music files stored on your computer. Enjoy Internet radio, Rhapsody®, Napster®, and Pandora® music, plus photos on Flickr™. You can also stream wirelessly from your compatible device with the optional RX-101 Bluetooth® receiver. Add an optional SiriusConnect™ home tuner kit to enjoy SIRIUS satellite programming. Marantz's M-DAX2® Dynamic Audio Expander circuitry restores fidelity to "lossy" music files.
Apple's exciting AirPlay technology lets you access your favorite music from your iPhone®, iPad™, iPod touch®, or your iTunes library on your computer using this Marantz receiver. You'll be able to control iTunes and see music information, including your album art, track titles, and artist info on your compatible Apple device, or on your TV if your Marantz receiver is equipped with a video output. First you will need a free firmware upgrade. Go to the Marantz website for instructions on how to download and activate the upgrade.
