    7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD AV Receiver

    Discover a thrilling new dimension in surround sound with the NR1606 A/V Receiver, which features Dolby Atmos immersive surround decoding, delivering breathtaking surround sound with today's advanced movie soundtracks. With Dolby Atmos you'll experience the same revolutionary 3D surround sound found in premium movie theaters, with the ability to create an overhead surround soundfield that dramatically expands the sonic space. And, via a firmware update (available fall 2015), the NR1606 will be able to decode DTS:X soundtracks, which also deliver an immersive 3–dimensional soundspace.

    HDMI 2.0 and Multi–Zone Capability

    With 8 HDMI 2.0a inputs (including 1 conveniently located on the front panel), the NR1606 features an advanced video processing system. Prepared for the future, the NR1606 is equipped to handle 4K Ultra HD full rate 60 Hz content, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub–sampling and 21:9 aspect ratio pass–through. It's also HDCP 2.2 compliant, which is a requirement for 4K Ultra HD copy–protected content. Featuring high current discrete power transistors on all 7 channels, the NR1606 is equipped with multi–zone, multi–source capability. Enjoy a blockbuster movie in your home theater room, while others can enjoy stereo audio from another source in another room.

    Dolby Atmos

    For decades, movie surround soundtracks have been channel–based. Dolby's revolutionary Atmos surround sound technology dispenses with channel–based coding in favor of more advanced object–based coding, giving the sound designer the ability to precisely place sounds anywhere in the 3–dimensional space. Now, you can enjoy this same award–winning technology at home with the NR1606, which features the ability to connect a 5.1 surround sound speaker system and 2 additional overhead speakers or 2 additional Dolby Atmos–certified up firing speakers for the ultimate home theater experience. Along with Dolby Atmos decoding, the NR1606 also features Dolby TrueHD lossless decoding and other Dolby Digital technologies.


    The latest immersive surround sound system, DTS:X features object–based audio coding that lets the sound designer place sonic elements anywhere in the 3D acoustic soundspace, and provides for overhead speakers to deliver a stunning surround sound experience. Along with DTS:X decoding, the NR1606 features DTS–HD Master Audio decoding and other DTS audio technologies. DTS:X will be enabled through an online firmware update coming in late 2015.

    Built–in Wi–Fi & Bluetooth

    Equipped with Wi–Fi & Bluetooth wireless streaming connectivity, the NR1606 features an advanced dual antenna RF transceiver system, for robust and error–free streaming even in congested urban environments. Connect to the internet through your home Wi–Fi network (or with a hard–wired connection via the RJ–45 Ethernet LAN port) and enjoy your favorite tracks from streaming music services such as Pandora and Spotify Connect. You can also choose from thousands of internet radio stations around the world, and enjoy music from virtually every genre. The NR1606 also features AirPlay, you can enjoy listing to your favorite tracks wirelessly from your favorite iOS device, including the iPod touch, iPhone and iPad, and the NR1606 is also DLNA 1.5 certified for compatibility with your home PC or Mac, and features an RJ–45 Ethernet port for wired connection to your network.

    Latest HDMI 2.0a Connectivity; HDCP 2.2 Compatible

    Equipped with 8 HDMI 2.0a inputs, including 1 conveniently located on the front panel, the NR1606 incorporates an advanced video section that features the latest HDMI 2.0a specifications, including support for 4K Ultra HD 60 Hz full rate video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub–sampling and 21:9 video pass–through, along with support for 3D content. For compatibility with 4K Ultra HD copy–protected content, the NR1606 also features HDCP 2.2 support. The NR1506 also features Audio Return Channel (ARC), which lets you stream audio from your TV via a single HDMI connection (no need for a separate digital audio cable).

    Full Specification 4K Ultra HD Compatibility

    In addition to handling 4K Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 resolution, the NR1606 also features HDR (High Dynamic Range) and Wide Color Gamut compatibility, key components of the BT.2020 4K Ultra HD video specification. The advanced video processor also upscales SD and HD content to 4K resolution for maximum viewing enjoyment.

    7 Channel Discrete Amplifier with Eco Mode

    The power amp section features discrete high current power output devices, identical on all 7 channels for precision soundstage uniformity. Rated at 50 watts per channel (20Hz~20kHz, .08%THD, 8 ohms), the NR1606 features low impedance drive capability and is compatible with 4 ohm speakers. The Eco mode provides energy savings and features an on–screen Eco meter.

    Dual Subwoofer Outputs

    Featuring dual subwoofer outputs, the NR1606 lets you connect two smaller subwoofers instead of a single, larger sub, and enjoy the benefits of response averaging by having two subs in different locations in the room. With dual subwoofers, deep bass is smoother and more detailed, minimizing the peaks and dips that often result with a single subwoofer setup.

    Audyssey Bronze Built In

    Via the supplied measuring microphone and mic stand, Audyssey MultEQ measures all the speakers in your home theater during setup, including the subwoofer, and then generates multiple high precision DSP room acoustic correction filters, which together provide the smoothest and most natural tonal balance, regardless of the brand or model of the various speakers. Audyssey Dynamic Volume features advanced psycho–acoustic processing to deliver clear dialog and wide range sound at reduced volume levels so that you can enjoy theater–level clarity at whatever listening level you choose. Audyssey Dynamic EQ also features advanced DSP processing to deliver full range wide–band response, even at reduced volume levels.

    Easy To Setup, Easy To Use

    With our exclusive Setup Assistant along with the Quick Start Guide, you can connect and configure your home theater system quickly and easily. The Setup Assistant features clear on–screen graphics and text that quickly and easily guide you through the setup process, optimizing critical system settings for the best possible sound quality.

    New Remote App

    Download the Marantz AVR Remote App and control the NR1606 with your smartphone, tablet or other smart device. Available in iOS and Android versions, the app lets you easily control and configure the NR1606.

    Front Panel USB Port

    The front panel USB port lets you connect your smartphone or tablet, and is compatible with USB drives and NAS devices. When the NR1606 is switched on, the USB port can simultaneously charge your device, and it features a 5V/1A output, the same output delivered by phone chargers.

    Color Coded Speaker Terminals

    For easy installation, the NR1606 features a horizontal row of premium loudspeaker connection terminals, and the color coded connection system includes a set of color coded speaker cable labels that helps ensure correct speaker cable hookup the very first time.
