Or separate quantity of features and quality of themWould it not be useful to add a rating score for the app (HEOS) separately as you have given the amp a 10 for features but complain about some issues with HEOS in the cons. This could be useful for all future equipment reviews that have an app involved in their function as app control becomes increasingly important in the function of equipment.
What do others think?
Interestingly enough, I was just watching some YouTube videos about this receiver...Would this have any find of loudness/dynamic bass button/option? I love the dynamic eq on Marantz/Denon for music at low listening levels as it’s still very warm and some nice bass. Same with movies, tv shows etc actually.
Ah OK, thanks for the prompt response. Any spoilers before it goes live? I have been auditioning the Vena 2 non-play version and love it so hoping the Play will be as good. I know it has pretty much the same internals but with the addition of Wi-Fi and Ethernet you never know.No, it's in the tank ready to go but won't link correctly until the review goes active.
My Onkyo 8555 is the same way -- has a sub preout but it can't be frequency-adjusted (the main speakers continue to play full range)...2. The subwoofer integration allows you to only filter output to the subwoofer and not the front speakers. Because of this, the full signal is sent to the front speakers. You are not getting the full benefit of having subwoofers TAKE OVER the low bass and more power is being unnecessarily sent to the front speakers.
That's how I see it too; these slim-line Marantzes are good, basically, for small offices, dorm rooms or bedrooms.4. The biggest use case for this device is a bedroom system.
I don't agree with this. There are plenty of people for whom these Marantz amps are ideal for normal sized rooms. I have the NR1506 which is a 5.1 slim line amp, it has more than enough power to give a good multichannel experience in my average sized room, and the 2 channel performance is not too shabby either. For people who live in semi's and terraced houses so can't play movies and music at silly volumes, and don't want to fill their room with speakers and bulky AV equipment, these amps are a great solution.That's how I see it too; these slim-line Marantzes are good, basically, for small offices, dorm rooms or bedrooms.
If you have very inefficient speakers that also present 4ohm loads and you sit far away in a large room...Not sure how loud people play their music, but these “Marantz’s” go very loud and I only need turn mine up to 10 or 11 O’clock on the dial and it fills my house with great sound easy.
