From the Manufacturer
At just over 4 inches high and 14 inches deep, the NR1402 can fit on a standard-size shelf with room to spare. The slim design means extra space for all your cable connections without a cluttered look. Despite being only half the height of most traditional receivers, the NR1402 boasts a wide array of features in a quality steel and aluminum chassis.
The NR1402 features four HDMI inputs that provide uncompressed video and audio with digital clarity. Support for Deep Color and x.v.Color schemes, which display a larger color range than standard-definition schemes, results in a lifelike, vibrant picture.
Using a single cable, you can easily connect any HDMI-equipped source or display to the receiver. With support for 3D-capable TVs and Blu-ray players, the NR1402 has you covered with HDMI 1.4a compatibility designed specifically for 3D.
The receiver features auto setup and room calibration and allows you to navigate setup on your TV screen via HDMI. Plug in the included calibration microphone, place it in your favorite seat, and run the setup wizard. The Audyssey MultEQ automatically analyzes your room's acoustic properties to determine the optimal settings. If you wish, you can manually fine-tune individual settings, such as bass, treble, speaker distance, and other properties.
|Five Audio Channels Produce a Theater-Like Experience|
For an enveloping surround sound experience, the NR1402's amplifier delivers five 50-watt channels of equal power and quality. The result is a balanced sound field capable of faithfully reproducing the most demanding movie, gaming, and multi-channel audio.
A 2.1 channel preamp output offers system upgrade possibilities. Use the Dolby Pro Logic IIz feature to add vertical dimension to the front soundstage or add additional speakers to the rear of your room with Dolby Pro Logic IIx.
Clear, Pure Audio in High Def
There's also a 192kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converter for all channels and an isolated audio circuit board for improved sound and minimal interference. Source Direct mode switches off all unused circuitry for the purest audio possible.
M-XPort for Bluetooth and MP3 Devices
The Marantz NR1402 5.1 Home Theater Receiver is backed by a three-year warranty.
What's in the Box
Top Customer Reviews
The answer: Very.
Most importantly, it sounds great. I'm using this with Orb Audio speakers and a Rel 218 subwoofer. The Orbs are inexpensive good speakers. The sub is something audio-geeks like. This combination sounds exceptional.
Setup is straightforward. I've only done it manually, but I will probably experiment with the automated setup at some point. The interface is straightforward and the instructions are clear. There are a lot of useful features in this box, but yet it is free of the bloat that one sees in the huge monster-sized hulking testosterone-overdose receivers on display in places like bestbuy. If you want elegance and comparative simplicity, without sacrificing sound quality, this is a good option.
I've had trouble using HDMI from my 2010 mac mini (which has HDMI out) to the receiver. It works fine directly to my TV, so I do that, and run optical from the mini to the receiver. That work-around works fine, but if you need to hook up a mac directly, be aware that it might present some problems. The instructions appear to scrupulously avoid any indications that it ever occurred to anyone at Marantz that someone might wish to hook up their computer to the AVR.
I wish it had a Class D amp, which I prefer for purposes of energy conservation, but in standby mode, the unit is a good citizen. At 50WPC, it isn't going to present a significant drain on your power, unless you watch an unhealthy amount of TV. Conversely, I can play this thing very loud without distortion.Read more ›
This fit the bill perfectly. I have a Denon 1912 for the basement, and besides internet music streaming and Airplay, I haven't noticed much difference between the two (the Denon is considered to be the best A/V receiver out there at the time of this review). I'm using this with an Energy RC-Micro 5.1 speaker system (again, it had to be visually appealing for the Mrs.), and this makes them shine. It had all the options I needed, including channel level adjustment, crossover level, HDMI source customization, and more that I haven't even touched. Unlike the last model, the NR1402 has Dolby Pro Logic II for turning stereo sources into surround, along with DTS Neo 6, which some people may prefer. My personal choice is Dolby PLII, because it redirects dialogue to the center channel much better than the DTS Neo 6 does, but what sounds good to my ears may not sound good to yours. Of course, this also has Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS, and much more. Translation: this receiver will decode anything you throw at it, and make it sound great!
I couldn't be happier with my purchase. $400 may seem a little steep, but for a receiver of this quality with such a small footprint, it's well worth it.Read more ›
Update: Played around with it a little. Hooked it up to computer via HDMI, works pretty cool since it has pass through. No need to turn it on if you don't need or want sound.
Push OSD on the remote it gives you a brief summary of everything then goes away in a few seconds. All things are just laid over top of desktop. It has a screen saver that goes all black in 30sec default, good if computer is off. When adjusting anything it pops up just as OSD does.
In case you don't know, Marantz is owned by Denon, and the inside of a modern Marantz receiver is very similar to a Denon receiver. You can buy a comparably featured Denon receiver for about $120. There is no functional reason to prefer this one. The only reason is that it's smaller. I wanted something sitting on my desk (to drive desk speakers for playing computer games) that does not look like a beached whale, and was willing to pay for that. If you have plenty of space in a rack somewhere, you probably aren't.
Marantz also makes the NR1602, which is the same as the NR1402 with Internet features added - various forms of Internet radio, online updates, remote control through a web browser etc. In my application, I can easily reach the front panel by reaching out on my desk - I don't even use the (decent) remote control. So I decided not to spend more money on that.
Marantz also sells the NR1403, this year's model. (The last two digits are the model year, and they work like cars, roughly a year ahead of reality.) Unless the latest model has something you absolutely need, you can save a fair chunk of money buying last year's model (as I did). There's really not much change year-to-year. Check the manuals. Also take note of things that are taken out each year - for example, the NR1403 does not have the four-way front-panel rocker switch (you need to use the remote). I like it.
I do not actually use the video capabilities of this receiver - I use it to drive audio for games only. (The computers produce much better video than HDMI could carry.Read more ›
