Did anyone get it for this price?
"Not yet despatched. We'll email you when available". *holds breath*
wont let me add to basket
Especially when 1000 people order there is no way this gets honored. To actually receive something with a price error like that you keep it for yourself, because no one will get it now that there are hundreds of orders. Amazon will notice the obvious mistake and cancel orders. 1-2 orders could pass...
Great piece of kit. Had mine for a couple of years. Had the odd bug here and there but the regular firmware updates have sorted them out. Highly recommend it at this price. P.S If left in standby mode it takes seconds to connect to a internet station.
Just noted 6 ohms output, a little unusual, normally 8 sometimes 4, this is the first 6 I've seen. How long does this take to start up and connect? My Onkyo takes probably two minutes to connect to an internet station.
Great little unit, athough the app is a bit crap. Very good sound for an all in one.
Argh right price, been waiting ages for it to drop this low again, sadly I'm broke after buying a car for my son :( However can anyone advise how loud it is when driving both A and B speakers?
Been watching this for a while now. Any feedback from owners appreciated. Voted hot for the price.
Isn't the audio technica one a it better yet same price? Has better reviews?
nar it will get you one thats the same as many others, cheap and cheerful. few id look at for £250 is a sonyhx500/audio technica120 and a riga planer1. i still have my pioneer pl15 after 40 years of service its still going strong (y)
£150 will get you something decent enough £250 will get you a very nice deck.
Everyone I know who sold their SL1200’s regrets it now. I never bought a pair however all my decks are Technics as I love them. I have a SL2000 with black wood plinth upstairs and a SLD2 downstairs. I have another packed away as a spare.
Gutted I missed this at £250 from Richer Sounds
Same price anywhere
Bargain for this HiFi system, I've got this system in storage and when paired with some ATC SCM11's it sounds amazing.... If you want a really good sounding HiFi, get this.
This is pretty much the standard price at Richer Sounds however they do not deliver. They also do the black version which sometimes is as low as £250 but again no delivery.
154 quid for a CD player! I wonder how much their tape cassette player and wind up gramophone with a horn and steel needle is?
Is there a noticeable difference between this and the 6006? Or is it extras like connectivity? I'd have a PC linked into the same setup so don't need anything like that.
What I love about this deal is you can add a Chromecast or Bluetooth receiver, a pair of decent speakers and a quality turntable and still have spent less than the price of a mid to high end sound bar. And have an order of magnitude better sound.
Dali's were brighter than the Silver's? Surprised about that. Being paper vs metal. I find the Silver's very deep, good bass. But I think the Dali's are more musical. Drum and Bass I'd be all over the Silver's :D Did you have the Dali's backed against a wall? That helps a lot with them. The Silver's don't really need that. It will make them boomy.
Now that would've been too sensible. I'd be surprised if it was much better though. Really made the sound how I liked. I will return with my own CDs to test before buying though. The Marantz 6006 with Dali's lacked depth to me, was too bright. All IMHO. (£280 + £319)
I'd encourage you to order this so you don't lose out, then go visit your local Richer Sounds and see what you think for yourself. My addled ears from years of loud Walkmans (yes, original tape ones) may have a very different perception to you. :D The Amp itself was £500 so not in the same budget.
Did you compare the CXA60 to something similar in price?
Fantastic Price! Been toying with the idea of a new set up for a while! Very tempting at this price! I Hear great things about these speakers and Marantz Amps never disappoint!
Great price. Good find.
Why has this expired its still available at this price?
Part review for the amp when techmoan went ATMOS; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GudeBM9n4GU
Any modern AVR should drive your speakers fine and as I previously mentioned if you want excellent music reproduction hard to find another AVR that will match this one at this price. And these Tannoys have the excellent Dual Concentric drivers, you'll need to spend well in excess of £500 on current speakers for performance on par with the DC3s.
Not necessarily, both this Marantz and the Denon have the exact same power saver mode and will adapt the power consumption based on usage - e.g. lower volume, lower power used.
Don't need to in the sense that they will stop working but need to in the usual way of keeping up with pace of change and wanting nice new shiny speakers (_;). Matching them to the new amp and ceiling speakers is also important to me to create a balanced sound.
Just Purchased from Richer sounds for £389 and its awesome. If you are space limited this is the only amp worth considering. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/marantz-nr1607-dolby-atmos-dts-x-4k-av-receiver-slimline-389-2676546
£460 today on Peter Tyson.
Oh of course. If your not restricted to space and can fit a full size then your not the intended target for this slim model. If you are restricted by space, then I don't believe there is anything better out there and with 120 quid knocked off., it deserves some love.
It's obviously great, the deal breaker is only 1 hdmi output. And you are paying a premium for the slimline.

Its been 279 at richer and tyson for a number of months now. I'm gonna hold off till xmas for hopefully another price drop.
thanks brookheather !
The description has been copied incorrectly from the NR1606 which has 7 channels - this is the NR1506 with only 5 channels.
why does the description say NR1606 ? - I'm a big Marantz fan but am confused by this !
Not a Sony, not interested
I am very temping to buy it. I was looking for Denon avr-x 4200 but this would be a good deal..
If anyone is still interested in this its now £599 but use code on website to bring it back down to £499. I've had this for a week now and its very good. Also most everything can be customised e.g what is shown on the front when you are watching diff. sources; xbox one, sky, ps4,chromecast etc (although the text is very small and it doesn't have the bigger screen under the 'hood' so quite difficult to read but then again you should know what source you are on!). Also there is no led screen on the remote and i thought it did but again not a problem. My only issue is you cannot change the volume increments, defaulted to 0.5, and I wish I could change this to increase/decrease in increments of 2/3. Also I have to turn on sky before the amp otherwise no sound, abit of a pain as i normally turn the amp on first and then the diff. sources.
Very good price. Went into richer sounds today to buy the denon x3200 (I wanted hdmi zone 2). They had none left, or in warehouse, so they offered pioneer vsx1311 for £525 (then pay extra for warranty). Came home and saw this and just bought it. I already have the marantz pm6005 so I recon this should be very good also.
Tempted and looks a good deal on paper... would this destroy my slightly aging Yamaha RX-v765 or would I be wondering why I bothered though, that's the question! Any idea where might be good to audition one in central london, RS?
Great price, cheapest around I suppose. Marantz SR6010, a 9.2-channel amp capable of 110W per channel. Atmos 5.1.4 is supported here, as well as DTS:X and Neural:X 9.1. As well as the same number of HDMI inputs and outputs and support for a Zone 2, there are 13.2-channel preouts and a 7.1-channel external input. There's also Audyssey MultEQ calibration.
Good HiFi amps give powerful sound output for long periods of time so the wattage is often not a good comparison between products. If you look at NAD amps for example, while the rated output is low they will sound far more powerful than cheaper amps. 2x45w from a Marantz amp will be enough for most situations however the room size and speaker sensitivity will dictate the perceived audible level. For reference I am running Wharfedale 157 floorstanders with this and rarely use more than 20% of the volume control knob in a small sized room.
I bought this a few weeks ago (as I wanted a USB DAC and amp in 1) it's 35WPC and does a good job of driving my B&W 602's, not that I intended to drive such large speakers with it, as it did such a good job with my Q Acoustics 2020's I thought lets give it more of a challenge. So given the Marantz has the extra 10W and is better quality overall, it should do the job fine.
is 2 x 45w high enough for the average living room, seems quite low to me when a typical set of floor standers would state 30w to 150w input, cant leave much headroom.
marantz kit is always worth a listen. good quality and always good specs.
Same deal on Exceptional AV I think. For me need to hit the £250 mark for these specs although in fairness it does have 8 HDMI inputs.
Had this on my wishlist for a while now but Ive just got too much less fun stuff to spend my money on at the mo. They also do a good bundle with some canny tannoy 5.1 speakers and a bunch of freebies thrown in for good measure. http://www.petertyson.co.uk/ebuttonz/ebz_product_pages/marantz_nr1606_with_tannoy_hts101_xp.shtml
Would love one of these but just don't have the money or absolute need.
Superb deal, excellent amp. Owned Marantz for years, always impressed!
My roommate had it in the US in the seventies, great brand.
Don't they sell them at DFS?
Never heard of them you be betting going with a Sony
Doubtful, firmware updates but unnecessary and not entirely convincing. You can block internet access although lose internet radio function, but if like me you just use it for NAS streaming it is quicker.
Is it checking for codec updates on each input change?
This was last August. Just searched for my email to them. Same happened with several other products in the Denon/Marantz (D&M Holdings) stable. I had the exact same problem with the Denon DNP-720AE Network Streamer of which a temporary fix was to block internet access to their servers, asked them the question and had this response..... The odd thing in that is even when selecting playback from the USB port it would poll their servers....it simply is not necessary for every menu option to poll their server first to check for updates.
Q Acoustics 2010i or the newer versions
I love my CD's but then again I am old plus I have an old pioneer multi CD changer and all my stuff on mp3, mind you I could do with the shelf space back,,,, who wants to buy about 500 CDs but I'm keeping my vinyl
so, if you are still listening what would the recommendation be for a digital replacement. would £250 buy a dac as good. or the bits needed to replace the player?
Good price for this, but I am very skeptical of how much of a difference this would make over a high end blu ray player. As mentioned in previous comments, it all depends how much you sink into your hifi setup.
You are probably getting better audio out of that set up than a CD player of the same cost. I ripped all my CDs to FLAC years ago and just got a really good dac, which is the most important part of a system nowadays.
Love good old skool hi-fi and Marantz is one of the best - have some heat!
Initial impressions of this are very positive. CD easy enough of course and USB pretty simple once reformatted as FAT32 rather than NTFS, FLAC sounds fantastic. Internet Radio is really easy to browse and there is a whole world of choice out there and DAB/FM works as it should. DLNA as usual is a bit hit and miss. When it works then it works very well with the stream being 100% smooth and MP3 sounding pretty decent. Problem is that the Marantz remote app is very temperamental in terms of finding the device or finding my NAS. Have had a little more success with Bubble UPnP but still, often it takes a long time for the device to appear in the list of renderers. Saying that, my experience with all DLNA devices is sketchy in a similar way.
I've heard of Sony. But Onkyo? Another unknown brand to me.
Don't forget Onkyo and Sony.
Sounds like you aren't a target market. Have you ever bought, or looked through any of the hifi magazines? Ever heard of e.g. Cambridge Audio, Arcam, Musical Fidelity, Klipsch etc?
ummm.They should do more advertising. Never heard of them.
Thinking of buying one. Any reviews from owners? Is it really worth it or better to find something like audiolab 8000a?
Back down to £249.00 again. Have some extra heat! These are great amps and the built in DAC and Phono stage is a welcome addition at this price point.
Expired now, back to 299. Mods please expire!
Great amp, I've had one for a few years. Really nice sound.
All I can say is that I'm happy and cannot find a bad review. Price drop makes it slightly sweeter. As to harmonics, this is not a concern for anyone looking at entry to mid level amplifiers.
This is currently at £349 in Richer and Amazon, seems like a good deal.
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.
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 :)
It's a 5.2 AV, what do you expect? :D
good price for this model - but I'd would want Dolby atmos and/or DTS-x for this price
