Marantz NR1710 vs Marantz NR1200

Marantz NR1200 review

At first glance NR1200 upsets us with only two channels compared to 7.2 from 1710. But gong further it comes out that it has 100W vs 70W at 6 Ohms. At the same time, the capabilities of the Marantz NR1200 go far beyond what we are used to seeing with Hi-Fi devices. Marantz NR1200 is built according to the classical scheme of integrated amplifiers, using fully discrete circuits and select components in the most important stages in terms of sound quality. The output circuits in the stereo receiver have a symmetrical topology, and separate windings of the network transformer are used to power the various circuits of the device. Two pairs of speakers can be connected to the unit, and tone controls are provided to adjust the nature of the sound. Marantz NR1200

The model supports formats of object-oriented 3D-sound DTS:X and Dolby Atmos in 5.1.2-channel version. Available DTS Virtual:X codec and Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization Technology to simulate the sound of ceiling or specialized speakers in multi-channel systems that are not equipped with such speakers. There is also 4K upscaling on board. Marantz NR1710
