Marantz NR1200 vs Marantz NR1510

Marantz NR1200 review

The built-in discrete power amplifier, according to the manufacturer, produces 2 to 75 watts per eight-ohm acoustics. The Marantz NR1200 circuit integrates HDAM SA2 and HDAM SA3 discrete amplifier modules. The model uses current feedback, with which it is possible to minimize distortion, expand the frequency range, obtain excellent transient characteristics and, in combination with a powerful PSU, ensure reliable operation even with capricious speakers in terms of impedance. The Marantz NR1200 stereo receiver has audiophile capacitors, resistors with minimal tolerances and other high-quality components, and its circuitry provides the shortest paths for the audio signal to pass through.

Marantz NR1510 review

This 5.2 channel stereo receiver has a power that reaches 85 watts per channel (6 ohms), and the receiver can withstand even a 4-ohm load. Thin-profile housing with a front panel height half that of traditional AV receivers, provides exceptional sound quality with the most musical performance. Streaming the most popular music services - such as Spotify, Deezer, Tidal and many others - via Bluetooth, AirPlay 2 or the HEOS app. Use the HEOS built-in multi-room technology for streaming or AirPlay 2 to enjoy your favorite music in any room of your house.
