Marantz AV Receivers: Comparing the SR & NR Series Features

Updated: March 09, 2021

Marantz AV receivers are some of the best examples of great-sounding surround sound amplifiers on the market.

They have been making audio products since the 1950's and have been long admired for their high-quality equipment.

However, it can be confusing to understand which model you want to buy as there seems to be such a large range of products on the market.

To make things easier, I have listed the recent models of the Marantz receiver and summarized the main features. So, you can easily see some of the differences between them.

There are currently two main ranges:

  • SR Series: mid-range to high-end AV receivers
  • NR Series: slimline models

I have grouped these receivers by their year of release, and then listed them in order of value (using the Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price as a guide).

The MSRP will often be beaten by the retailers, but it is still a useful guide as to the quality of each product.

The specifications are from the models in the US so you may find these vary slightly worldwide.

If you want some more help understanding what all the features and specifications mean, don't forget to take a look at my guide to the best AV receivers in 2021.

Marantz SR Series

The SR Series of Marantz AV receivers are their flagship models. If you want their best quality receivers then this is where you need to look.

The main highlight of the Marantz brand is its 'musical' sound. So, if you want an all-rounder that can work well for movies and music, then these are well worth considering.

About Home Cinema Guide

Paul started the Home Cinema Guide to help less-experienced users get the most out of today's audio-visual technology. He has worked as a sound, lighting and audio-visual engineer for around 20 years. At home, he has spent more time than is probably healthy installing, configuring, testing, de-rigging, fixing, tweaking, re-installing again (and sometimes using) various pieces of hi-fi and home cinema equipment.
