Marantz NR1710 review

The Marantz NR1710 AV Receiver is a 7.2-channel AV receiver with a low case and full 3D sound thanks to the support of the DTS: X and Dolby Atmos formats in 5.1.2-channel configuration. Seven high-current discrete amplifiers provide 90 watts per channel at 6 ohms, and the AV receiver works reliably even with a 4-ohm load. Access to virtually unlimited online music resources is provided through support for AirPlay 2, Bluetooth, Internet radio, Spotify Connect, and streaming audio over the network. Built-in Wi-Fi adapter with support for dual bands 2.4 GHz / 5 GHz, improves communication stability, especially in congested Wi-Fi networks. Marantz NR1710
