MARANTZ NR1604 AV RECEIVER

It's a sad fact of home cinema that among all the beautiful, shiny devices under your TV, the AV Receiver is always an ugly black monstrosity. Enter the Marantz NR1604. This svelte and stylish box is without doubt the most aesthetically pleasing (and technophobe-friendly) receiver we've ever had the pleasure of installing and something that will instantly raise the tone (both literally and figuratively) of your home cinema setup.

With 70W per channel there's still enough oomph in this slimline beauty to power anything but the most demanding of configurations. It's no slouch in the features department either, boasting 7.1 channels for a full surround experience and seven HDMI inputs to accommodate your blu-ray, set-top box, Apple TV and a handful of games consoles to boot. Throw in 4K upscaling and a well-designed iOS/Android app that lets you control the whole thing from your smartphone and this is one amp that deserves pride of place beneath your telly.
