Marantz 2016 AVR Remote
The Marantz 2016 AVR Remote app for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets gives you complete control over the latest Marantz network AV Receivers. Along with many new features, the graphics and user interface have been completely overhauled. Control power, volume, input and settings, or switch instantly to the HEOS App to access your music content and streaming services, with full HEOS wireless multi-room control.

Hi-Res Audio
The NR1508 lets you discover the incredible fidelity of high resolution audio tracks via the front panel USB port or network sources, with the ability to decode ALAC, FLAC and WAV lossless files up to 24-bit/192-kHz, as well as DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz tracks (the audiophile format of SACD). You can also listen to other popular file types, such as MP3.

Audyssey MultEQ for simple set-up
Using the measuring microphone and stand supplied, Audyssey MultEQ measures the speakers in your home theater, including the subwoofer, and then applies multiple high precision DSP room acoustic correction filters, providing the smoothest, most natural tonal balance - regardless of the brand(s) or model(s) of speaker.

Audyssey Dynamic EQ features advanced psycho-acoustic processing to deliver clear dialogue and wide-band response even at reduced volume levels, delivering cinema-level clarity whatever listening level you choose, while Audyssey Dynamic Volume avoids nasty shocks by normalizing volume when content switches to commercials or announcements, creating an easier listening experience.

The Audyssey MultEQ Editor App
The NR1508 supports the brand-new Audyssey MultEQ Editor App. Go ‘under the hood’, view and adjust settings for detailed tuning, customize the sound more precisely to the specific problems in your room, and tailor the sound to your personal preferences.

  • View the speaker detection results, to check correct installation.
  • View before and after results of the Audyssey calibration, making it easy to identify room problems.
  • Edit the Audyssey target curve for each channel pair to suit your tastes.
  • Adjust the EQ frequency adjustment range for each channel pair.
  • Switch between 2 high frequency rolloff target curves.
  • Enable/Disable midrange compensation to make the vocal region brighter or smoother.
  • Save and load calibration results.
The Audyssey MultEQ Editor app, for Android and iOS, is available for purchase from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

Dual Subwoofer Outputs
A single subwoofer demands optimum placement within the room for the best bass response: depending on its location, the low-frequency response at the main listening position can be uneven with audible peaks and dips. The NR1508 supports two subwoofers: used in different locations, these will even out the low-frequency response for more accurate bass anywhere in the listening area.

Smart TV Connectivity
Via the HDMI CEC (consumer electronics control) functionality on some Smart TVs, it's possible to control the NR1508 with the TV's remote handset. With the receiver's "HDMI control" set to ON, set "Smart Menu" receiver control functions and the TV's Smart Menu home screen will provide you direct access to source and surround mode selections, the main setup menu, and Smart Select configuration presets.

Simple Smart Select Functions
4 Smart Select function buttons on the remote control will store your preferred setup - input, volume and Audyssey configuration - for particular sources. The push of just one button has the NR1508 perfectly configured for anything from Blu-ray or your TV set-top box to your favorite Internet radio station.

Easy To Setup, Easy To Use
For easy installation, the NR1508's horizontal row of premium loudspeaker terminals is color coded, with a set of matching cable-labels supplied to ensure correct hook-up. The AVR's clear graphical on-screen display has an exclusive Setup Assistant, combining with the Quick Start guide to provide guidance and optimize critical settings for the best possible sound quality, whatever your configuration.
