I tend to be a little OCD (ok, maybe more than a little) when it comes to researching and purchasing gear, particularly audio/video stuff, so for any kindred spirits out there agonizing over what receiver to buy, hopefully this will be somewhat helpful...
A. WHAT I NEEDED: A simple, no-frills way to run a high-quality 2.1 speaker system with my TV setup, with possible upgrade to full surround later. Baseline requirements:
1. Excellent sound quality (I'm a self-professed audiophile), meaning: clear, accurate surround/LF decoding and mix-down to 2.Read more ›
Having 6 HDMI and 3D passthrough was really the primary reason for the upgrade, as the Denon only had 2 HDMI and no 3D passthrough. I have 5 devices, so I was constantly plugging/unplugging.
Like another reviewer I really don't care about all the internet features. I've got an XBOX, a Tivo, a blu-ray player and a computer hooked up that can all do the internet stuff.
I also noticed that there are no component inputs. Not a huge deal to me, as most of my stuff is HDMI. Fortunately it does still have some standard RCA inputs for my VCR (yes, I still have a VCR!).
On to more important things: sound. I actually did notice a difference between the aging Denon and this. It seems to handle my small speakers (Bose) better. I was constantly fighting with the center not putting out enough with the Denon. I do like a little more sound out of the center than the calibration decided was enough, but it's simple to turn up. After playing a few XBOX shooter games I really liked how it performed. In Half-Life 2 I was always fighting with game sounds being too loud and dialog being to quiet. This receiver did a good job. Gun sounds seem more crisp and less obnoxious. Directional sounds were very accurate (ie. opponents coming up from behind). TV sounds great, and blu-rays are just simply stunning.
Calibration was very easy with the included mic and the automated calibration.Read more ›
This AVR is compact. The styling is simple and attractive. The materials and contsruction all seem to be high quality. The compact size makes this unit ideal for a smaller room setting (bedroom, office, den, etc).
It is very easy to set up. It offers the option of automatic set up via Audyssey or completely manual set up. Either way, the on-screen menus are logically arranged and the instructions are easy to follow.
In keeping with it's compact nature and simple interface, this is not a highly featured AVR. It supports only 5.1 channels (no 7.1 available, no Zone 2 speakers). It does not offer network connectivity. It is relatively low powered (50 W per channel), although I have not found this to be an issue in my smallish room.
For reference, I am using this AVR to drive a pair of Martin Logan Motion 4 bookshelf speakers and a Martin Logan Dynamo 300 subwoofer.
-Outstanding Sound Quality
-Quality Fit and Finish
-Simple, Easy to Use Interfaces
-6 HDMI Inputs
-Minimalist feature set
-Only 5.1 channels
-No network connectivity
-Only video connections other than HDMI are composite (no component), which may be an issue with older video players or game consoles.
-Some features can be accessed only via remote
The Marrantz NR-1403 Compact AVR is an ideal solution for achieving high quality audio where a minimalist set up is desired. The sound quality is truly outstanding and the lack of a full feature-set can be forgiven in exchange for the compact size and ease-of-use that this unit provides. Highly Recommended.
