      Can't seem to find a definitive answer to this question. The online manual doesn't say, Richer Sounds say "No", but Marantz Europe Technical Support say "Yes". The online manual for the NR1607 7.1 Channel Atmos model specifically states that the HDMI inputs support v2.0a and HDR. As I will want a slimline receiver that can support 4k UHD Premium HDR, this information is critical.

      The product description on Marantz Uk site seems to say it does supports HDR / 4K

      Marantz UK | NR1506

      "Latest HDMI Connectivity; HDCP 2.2 Compatible

      Featuring 6 HDMI inputs, including 1 conveniently located on the front panel, the NR1506 incorporates an advanced video section that features the latest HDMI specifications, including support for 4K Ultra HD 60 Hz full rate video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling and 21:9 video pass-through, along with support for 3D content. The NR1506 also features HDCP 2.2 compatibility, a requirement for 4K Ultra HD copy-protected content.

      The NR1506 also features Audio Return Channel (ARC), which lets you stream audio from your TV via a single HDMI connection (no need for a separate digital audio cable).

      Full Specification 4K Ultra HD Compatibility

      In addition to handling 4K Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 resolution, the NR1506 also features HDR (High Dynamic Range) and Wide Color Gamut compatibility, key components of the BT.2020 4K Ultra HD video specification."

      The 'definitive' answer is you should ignore any mention of HDMI Version numbers as they mean nothing.

      HDMI :: Manufacturer :: Trademark and Logo

      Look for the Features you require along with support for the Video and Audio signal formats your Sources Output.

      @unreel, @Joe Fernand - Thanks for your helpful comments. The information on the Marantz UK site is definitive enough for me to go ahead with a purchase.
