7-Channel Discrete Amplifier: The Marantz NR1602 is equipped with a
power amplifier that reproduces high-fidelity sound in surround mode with equal
quality and power for all channels, true to the original sound. The power
amplifier circuit adopts a discrete-circuit configuration that achieves
high-quality surround sound reproduction. The 7 channel amplifier is rated at 50 watts
with 2 channels driven (20-20kHz, 8-ohms, 0.08% THD).
Amp Assignment: The seven amplifier channels built into the
receiver are typically used for 7.1 channel surround in the main room, but there
are various amplifier configurations to accommodate your home theater setup:
- Normal: The NR1602 is designed to be used as a 7.1ch
surround sound receiver with front left/right, center-channel, surround
left/right, and surround back left/right channels along with a single
subwoofer preamp output.
- Bi-Amp: You can configure the amplifier for front
bi-amp operation to achieve a higher-quality 2-channel sound by connecting
the receiver's front and surround back channels to your main front speakers
(if compatible). This allows you to drive the treble and bass units with
separate channels amps, which enable better sound quality. The surround back
channels of the amplifier will need to be turned off to bi-amp your front
speakers. This configuration will limit your Home Theater to 5.1ch.
- Zone2: The surround back channel amplifier can also be
assigned to power stereo speakers in Zone2. The NR1602's Dual Zone system
allows the same audio source or different audio sources to be heard in
another other room, other than where the receiver is installed. You must
turn off the Surround Back channels of the amplifier when using the
receiver's Zone2 speaker outputs, which will limit you to 5.1 channels in
your main room.
- Front B: A second set of front speakers can be powered by the
surround back amplifier. Receiver will be limited to 5.1ch surround.
- Front Height: To enjoy Dolby Pro Logic IIz you can
reassign the power amp from the two surround back channels to the two front
height channels for better front effects. You will loose your surround back
Isolated Audio Circuit Board: The carefully-optimized audio signal
path rests on a separate circuit board for maximum performance, as well as
isolation from interferences generated by high speed video processing.
24-Bit, 192 kHz D/A Converters: The NR1602 uses
24-bit/192-kHz Digital-to-Analog converters for all channels. The 192kHz
sampling and 24-bit word length capabilities of the DACs allows you to play
high-resolution recordings and hear the increased clarity, detail and dynamic
range of those recordings.
Digital Signal Processing (DSP): The Marantz NR1602 is
equipped with a high-resolution SHARC 32-bit Digital Signal Processor (DSP). All
elements of the Surround Processor are optimized to the highest standards by the
use of selected high performance and discrete components, particularly the A/D
and D/A converters and the sophisticated DSP surround decoder. The NR1602 is
equipped with various surround modes to reproduce a variety of surround sound
effects, according to the content of the source to be played. The receiver
features Dolby Digital, Dolby TrueHD, DTS and DTS-HD decoding; as well as offers
Dolby Pro Logic II (x/z) audio processing.

Surround Parameters: You can adjust the following surround
- Dolby Pro Logic II Music Settings: While listening in
the Dolby Pro Logic II Music format, there are three further enhancements
you can adjust:
- Panorama: Broadens the front stereo image to the
surround speakers to provide a wraparound effect, especially effective
when there is limited output from the surround channels, panorama can be
turned on/off in the menu.
- Dimension: Allows you to move the sound field
forward or backward.
- Center Width: Allows you to adjust the width of the
- Center Image: In the Neo:6 Music mode, the Center Image
feature adjusts the output of the left and right channels relative to the
center channel, allowing you to make the center channel more or less
dominant as needed. This improves the image of the center channel,
especially when the listener is off-center. Adjustment varies from 7
(nothing subtracted from the L/R channels) to 0 (L/R channel output is cut
- Height Gain: This feature controls the front height
channel volume in Pro Logic IIz mode.
- LFE Level: This function selects the output level of
the LFE signal included in the Dolby Digital signal or the DTS signal. You
can select from 0 to -10 dB.
Audyssey MultEQ: Audyssey MultEQ technology helps create an
optimal acoustic profile for your home theater. Using the included setup
microphone, Audyssey MultEQ measures sound levels and adjusts speaker
configuration accordingly, making setup fast and easy. This room acoustic
measuring and correction system analyzes (via the included microphone) the audio
characteristics of your speaker system and your listening environment at up to 6
measurement points and automatically tailors the sound for top audio fidelity.
You can set the Audyssey MultEQ to one of the following modes.
- Audyssey: Optimizes the crossover point, output level,
delay time, and equalization of all speakers based on speaker frequency
response, speaker location, and room acoustics.
- Audyssey Bypass L/R: Optimizes all speakers except
front left and right.
- Audyssey Flat: Optimizes frequency response of all
speakers to flat.
- Manual: Adjusts the tonal quality for each speaker
individually using the manual equalizer settings; adjust from -20 to +6 dB
@ 63 Hz, 125 Hz, 250 Hz, 500 Hz, 1 kHz, 2 kHz, 4 kHz, 8 kHz, and 16 kHz.
- Off: Turns equalizer off.
Note: If you prefer, you can manually setup up your
speaker configurations. You can select the size and presence of each
speaker, the distance of each speaker from your normal listening position,
the level of each speaker in your system, and the crossover frequency
setting for each speaker.
Dynamic EQ: Audio engineers mix music and movie soundtracks
at reference levels much louder than typical home listening levels. At lower
volumes the human ear perceives sound differently; voices change, bass
dissipates, and the surround effect becomes less enveloping. Dynamic EQ adjusts
the frequency response curve based on volume to maintain consistent bass output,
octave-to-octave balance, and surround impact, resulting in rich sound at any
volume. You can set the Dynamic EQ to 0, 5, 10, or 15 dB.
Audyssey Dynamic Volume: Audyssey Dynamic Volume solves the
problem of large variations in volume level between television programs,
commercials, and between the soft and loud passages of movies. Dynamic Volume
addresses the issue of commercials that are too loud and movie soundtracks with
vast differences between soft and loud passages; the results are more
intelligible dialogue, loud passages maintain impact, and soft whispers are
heard clearly. When the volume level changes, Dynamic EQ also adjusts the
frequency response to maintain sound quality. You can set the Dynamic Volume to
Day (low), Evening (middle), Midnight (high), or off.
M-DAX: Compressed audio formats such as MP3, WMA
(Windows Media Audio) and MPEG-4 AAC reduce the amount of data by eliminating
signal components that are hard for the human ear to hear. The M-DAX function
generates the signals eliminated upon compression, restoring the sound to
conditions near those of the original sound before compression. It also corrects
the sense of volume of the bass to obtain richer sound with compressed audio
HT-EQ: The tonal balance of
a film soundtrack will be excessively bright and harsh when played back over
audio equipment in the home. This is because film soundtracks were designed to
be played back in large movie theater environments. Activating the receiver's
HT-EQ feature when watching a film made from movie theaters corrects this and
restores the correct tonal balance.
Dynamic Range Compression (DRC): Motion picture soundtracks
have tremendous dynamic range (the contrast between very soft and very loud
sounds). For listening late at night, or whenever the maximum sound level is
lower than usual, Compressing the dynamic range allows you to hear all of the
sounds in the soundtrack with reduced dynamic range. DRC works when playing
program sources recorded in Dolby Digital or DTS.
Bass & Treble: You can adjust the receiver's Bass and Treble
independently to suit your listening taste or room acoustics.
Source Level: This function adjusts the playback level of
the currently selected input source's audio input. Use this feature if there are
differences in the input volume levels between different sources. You can
correct the playback level of the audio input from -12 to +12dB.
Volume Settings: You can adjust the unit's maximum volume,
power on level, and mute level.
- Volume Limit: Set the receiver's maximum volume level
to -20dB, -10dB, 0dB, or None.
- Power On Level: Define the volume setting (-80 to
+18dB, Last) that is active when the power is turned on.
- Mute Level: Set the amount of attenuation (Full, -40dB,
or -20dB) when muting is activated.
Note: You can also adjust the receiver's Zone 2 Volume
Level and Volume Limit.
Speaker Terminals: The receiver has binding-post speaker
terminals for all speaker channels (Front L/R, Center, Surround L/R, and
Surround Back L/R). The
binding posts can accept bare wire, pin-connectors, and single banana plugs. The
terminals are spaced too far apart for dual banana plugs. The collar surrounding
the binding post terminals prevent the use of spade connectors.
Note: You can connect 6-8 ohms speakers.
Digital Inputs: There is 1 optical digital inputs and
1 coaxial digital input on the receiver's rear-panel. The inputs accept digital
audio signals from a compact disc, DVD, or other digital source component. You
can designate the input for each digital input according to your component.
Headphone Output: The receiver features a 1/4" stereo headphone jack
on its front panel for connecting a pair of optional headphones. The unit's
speakers will automatically be turned off when a set of headphones are
AM/FM Tuner: The Marantz AV receiver features a built-in
AM/FM tuner with 56 station auto-preset memory tuning. You can also set your
presets manually. You can even label these presets. In addition, you can even
directly tune in a frequency using the receiver's remote control.
HDMI (v1.4a): With four HDMI (v.1.4a) inputs, the NR1602
allows you to route multiple high-definition devices--like game consoles and
Blu-ray players--to your TV. It also allows you to connect all of your devices
to your TV with a single HDMI cable (via its HDMI monitor output), reducing
cable clutter. The HDMI inputs are assignable to different input sources. They
support HDCP copyright protection and are compatible with 3D signals, ARC, Deep
Color, xvYCC technology, Auto LipSync, and HDMI control.
Component Video Inputs/Output: This unit has
3 component video inputs
to obtain the color information (Y, Cb, Cr) directly from the recorded DVD
signal or other video component; and 1 component video output to output the
video signal directly into the matrix decoder of your television. By sending the
pure DVD component video signal directly, the DVD signal forgoes the extra
processing that normally would degrade the image. The result is vastly increased
image quality, with incredibly life like colors and crisp detail.
Analog-to-HDMI Conversion: The NR1602 is equipped with a
flexible video switching system that converts incoming analog video signals to
HDMI, so only one video connection is required from the receiver to the TV. The
composite and component video signals input through the receiver can be output
through the unit's HDMI monitor port to your HDTV (no scaling).
3D Pass-Through: With the advent of 3D media, it is
important to own a receiver that recognizes 3D video signals. The NR1602 is able
to pass through 3D signals from your Blu-ray player, ensuring that the 3D effect
doesn't get lost in translation. It also recognizes signals from 3D television
broadcasts. By connecting a 3D-compliant Blu-ray disc player and 3D-compliant TV
to the NR1602, you will have a 3D home theater where you can enjoy
high-definition sound and video on a level you've never experienced before.
ARC (Audio Return Channel): This feature allows audio to be
sent from your compatible HDTV to your receiver through the same HDMI cable
already being used to send audio and video to your HDTV. This eliminates the
need for extra cables connected to your television.
Deep Color & x.v.Color Support: The NR1602 also supports
Deep Color and x.v.Color content, which can display a larger color range than
standard-definition schemes. The result is a more lifelike, vibrant picture.
Auto LipSync: This feature automatically compensates for the
timing shift between the audio and video of the receiver. If needed, the audio
signal can be manually delayed to match the video signal; adjust from 0-200ms.
Video Select Function: You can switch the video input source
on the receiver while listening to a different audio signal.
Video Mode: You can select between 3 video processing
- Auto: Processes video automatically based on the HDMI
