Marantz has launched the NR1510 and NR1710 slimline 4K Ultra HD AV receivers, both available now from Marantz dealers and direct from the company website for $599 and $749, respectively. The units adopt a compact chassis and are capable of the “latest technologies…for an immersive listening experience, without sacrificing valuable entertainment center space.”
“The latest additions to our slim network receiver line continue to demonstrate Marantz’s mastery of blending the most musical sound with advanced technological features and elegant slender design,” said Emmanuel Millot, global brand director at Marantz. “We’ve packed plenty of power into both models and included the latest HDMI suite alongside voice control compatibility with industry-leading AI platforms. Both of these new models easily meet the needs of most enthusiasts without sacrificing space, and are an ideal option for listeners looking to move away from a sound bar to a product with greater sonic performance and ease-of-use.”

The more expensive NR1710 (pictured in the header) includes Dolby Atmos, plus Height Virtualizaion Technology which achieves a 3D listening environment without a claimed need for dedicated height speakers. Amplification caps out on both units at 50W per channel, and each includes a host of HDMI inputs, HDCP 2.3, 4K UHD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 pure color sub-sampling, Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG and BT.2020 pass-through.
Voice control is augmented by Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple Siri and Josh.ai, and users also have access to the in-built proprietary HEOS app for multi-room functionality and commands. Both the NR1710 and NR1510 support streaming services such as Spotify, Pandora, Tidal and others via Bluetooth, AirPlay2 or the HEOS app.
