Features

Working with audio for movies, the NR1200 automatically downmixes all surround formats to stereo. At the same time, support for two subwoofers is provided. The Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) low latency mode guarantees owners, for example, the Xbox One, a faster reaction in games. The built-in discrete power amplifier, according to the manufacturer, produces 2 to 75 watts per eight-ohm acoustics. And at 6 ohms and at one percent, he is able to give all 135 watts.

Design and build

The thin-profile case again provided a positive wife factor - and this is important. The design has been revised to increase the number of controls on the front panel. The model is made in a symmetrical topology, most of the sound path is developed in the concept of "double mono". The power supply for separate sections of the system is wired from independent transformer windings. The digital part of the new audio system received two separate DACs for each channel. The versatility was added by the presence of the NR1200 own phono stage, assembled on Marantz HDAM branded modules.
