Marantz NR1506 Slim 5.2 Full 4K Ultra HD Surround Sound AV Receiver with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

This is the NEW version of the slim Marantz receivers. Released this year - £60 cheaper than anywhere else right now!

Homeavdirect.co.uk are selling this receiver for £399.00 which is a good deal in itself, however if like me you prefer Richer Sounds, you can get this price beat for £389.00. I just picked mine up so they will definitely price beat if they have stock.

Some details of the receiver:
32-bit DSP processing - all major surround sound formats supported
4k pass-through and HDCP 2.2 compatible HDMI sockets
6 x HDMI 2.0a (5 are HDCP 2.2 compatible)
5.2 channels. 50W per channel
Low impedance drive capacity - compatible with 4 ohm speakers
Audyssey Bronze
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (and Ethernet)
Apple AirPlay, Internet Radio, Spotify Connect, DLNA
Android/iOS app to control receiver

This receiver is very highly rated and has the, in my opinion, added bonus of a slim design. Half the height of my Denon.

Nice and slim for its content. I was about to get a Sony 1060 but have decided to hold off for Atmos.I think there will be a lot of price drops soon.

Richersounds will price match this so better getting from them with their unbeatable 6 year warranty Its also a bit **** spec wise il stick with my onkyo 636.

Yeah that's why I suggested use Richer Sounds price beat They also reduced the 6 year warranty so total was only £420

Stick with onkyo

good price for this model - but I'd would want Dolby atmos and/or DTS-x for this price

It's a 5.2 AV, what do you expect?

yes but I was reflecting upon the price not the model. As I mentioned this appears to be a competitive price for that model , and I voted hot

Now I've spent all that money, the obvious question is what speakers should I buy Currently thinking Monitor Audio BX2 for RL and maybe Centre. Subwoofers seem like they'll set me back a small fortune though. Perhaps I'll leave the .1 out of the new system for now and just go 5.0.

This is currently at £349 in Richer and Amazon, seems like a good deal.
