7-channel amplifier Marantz NR1711 Review

Marantz recognizes that not every single room can support a large home theater receiver. That is why they produced the NR1711. This slim line, 8K-compatible receiver can easily power up to 7 speakers at the same time, yet suits into places where a typical receiver may be too tall.

Use it to power your 5.1.2-channel Dolby Atmos system. Or go with a 5.1-channel set up, and power an extra pair of speakers in another room at the same time.

Marantz NR1711 7.2-channel slim-line home theater receiver
The low-profile NR1711 provides top quality home theater sound without taking up a lot of space.
Last year’s lineup of Marantz slimline home theater receivers was very popular with consumers. 2022 brings even more functions to the table, such as 8K video upscaling, Bluetooth transmission to headphones, and improved Audio Return Channel (eARC), which lets you pass full-resolution surround sound signals from your TV to your receiver.Marantz NR1711

A lot of power under the hood
The Marantz NR1711 uses a high-current, discrete power amplifier for every of its 7 channels. So while 50 watts per channel may not sound like a significant on paper, this receiver has plenty of horse power to drive most small- to medium-sized speakers with simplicity.

Take pleasure in music from a wide variety of sources
The Marantz NR1711 8K Ultra HD AV receiver isn’t only a excellent choice for watching movies – it’s lot of fun with music, as well.
