Within this review they have mentioned that even if it isn’t the best immersive audio equipped receiver on the market, it’s the perfect choice for the target consumer who wants to downsize there system and not go the Soundbar Route.
With a decent two channel HiFi System, it offers a superb surround performance system, given the size of this device it can fit neatly intgo any living room system without drawing any attention to itself.
Mixing the Marantz NR1509, it sounded dynamic and weighting with the clear vocals and effects, sounds remain as epic as they should with a balance of bass heavy mixes. With a balance of scenes, the atmosphere and bass stay as true to the original scene with a higher powered model. With just a lack of mid tone detail throughout some scenes, even with this lacking it. The NR1509 does exactly what it was designed to do.
With a Value for money on the offer and the equal effects of this little 5.2 AVR it leaves a impressed value for design and effects.
It deserves the AVforums Best Buy Award for its quality value
