Streaming Stereo Receiver

Marantz NR 1200

At the High End it was already seen as a prototype: in September Marantz brings a stereo receiver with network module and HDMI connections. The NR 1200 is intended as an alternative to the multi-channel AV receiver - for all those who prefer to hear video-sound in pure stereo.

However, the NR 1200 is similar to the multi-channel models in terms of equipment: its network module controls Airplay 2 and, thanks to the HEOS multiroom system, can access all important music streaming services, complete with voice control. PCM files up to 192 kHz clock and DSD up to 5.6 MHz are supported over the home network, and a phono input is also on board. There are 5 HDMI inputs and one HDMI output with audio return channel for TVs, Blu-ray players and the like. The NR 1200 can receive radio via FM and DAB+. It can not only receive Bluetooth signals, but also - after a free firmware update - send them to suitable headphones. According to the data sheet, the rather slim device has an output power of 2x 75 watts at 8 ohms. The receiver will be available in black and silver-gold for around 700 euros.
