All the Performance of a Large AVR in a Half-Height Chassis: HEOS-Equipped Marantz NR1200 Two-Channel Stereo Receiver Handles Analog and High-Res Digital Music, 4K Ultra HD, and More
For condo and apartment dwellers, space is increasingly at a premium. And some of us prefer clean, uncluttered looks. Which is why the Marantz NR1200 two-channel stereo receiver – in a compact chassis half the height of a traditional receiver yet packed with as much fidelity-first features as large units, including multi-room-capable HEOS technology – makes for such a smart, functional, and sexy choice for myriad entertainment needs. Whether you want to spin vinyl or stream in high resolution up to DSD5.6 via USB, NR1200 stands at the ready. No soundbar on the market has anything on NR1200.
Outfitted with a discrete 75Wpc power amplifier with separate left/right power-amp circuit and power transformer and loaded with dedicated audiophile parts that extend to the dual DAC circuitry (two separate DACs per channel), NR1200 is engineered to reproduce engaging sound from any source – be it music, movies, TV shows, games, or otherwise. You can stream from services such as TIDAL, Spotify, and more all the while simply using your voice to control it all thanks to compatibility with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple Siri. Speaker A/B, tone controls, and a dedicated dual subwoofer output for evenly dispersed bass mean you can tailor playback to your preferences. And a built-in MM phono preamplifier with an HDAM stage indulge your analog passions.
On the connectivity side, all five HDMI inputs support HDCP 2.3, 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, and HLG. Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) ensures Xbox One owners will enjoy a more responsive experience when connected with ALLM-enabled TVs. Three analog inputs, one optical input, and one coaxial input abet four speaker terminals. The Ethernet-, Wi-Fi-, and Bluetooth-enabled NR1200 even comes with a remote control and HDMI-CEC support for seamless pass-through of picture and audio coding from your TV.
Indeed, the placement options for NR1200 are limited only by your imagination. If you have a setup in a rec room, den, bedroom, office, dorm, or summer home – or if your main room doesn't allow for a larger unit – this 18.1-pound hub practically demands to be let in on the fun. Your satisfaction is 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
"The Marantz NR1200 two-channel AV receiver is a bit of a Goldilocks product for me, and I think for a lot of other enthusiasts on the market today.... The NR1200 is the ideal product for consumers looking for just a little more, but not too much, enabling them to experiment with different speakers, other sources – both digital and analog – and maybe even add a power amp down the line, all the while not getting too overly complicated."
—Andrew Robinson, Home Theater Review
