Marantz NR1711 Review – 7.2 Channel 8K AV Receiver

The Marantz NR1711 is one of the newer entries that offers an impressive feature set at a mid-range price point. This unit has most of the features you could ask for in a home theater receiver including wireless connectivity, built-in streaming services, and support for both HDR and Dolby Atmos audio codecs. This makes it a great choice if you want something that can handle almost any media type with ease while still being affordable enough to make it worth your time.

The main aspect you’ll notice right off the bat is the inclusion of both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X decoding. This means that you can stream audio from compatible devices directly to the receiver without having to run an actual cable. If you have devices without Bluetooth support, you can use the Ethernet port to use this model as a wired network hub. This unit also has a variety of other inputs and outputs for connecting your various home theater components. You’ll find five HDMI inputs, two HDMI outputs, three analog audio inputs, and three digital audio inputs.

Our Verdict


This compact Marantz AVR is aggressively configured and capable of blowing out rowdy Dolby Atmos action movies or getting down with multi-channel music. It’s also ideally suited as a centre for next-generation gaming consoles, however there’s a 4K 120fps elephant in the room that we can’t ignore.


  • Useful features and great performance
  • Built-in home network hub so you don’t have to run wires
  • Plenty of inputs and outputs to connect all of your devices
  • A sleek and modern design


  • It doesn’t support Dolby Vision

The design of the NR1711 is fairly standard for an AV receiver. It has a large central section with an OLED display, some controls, and a large number of inputs. On the back, you’ll find an array of HDMI ports, an RCA audio output, a USB port, optical and coaxial audio inputs, and an ethernet jack. The display is large and easy to read, and the layout of the buttons and controls on the front is intuitive and easy to use. The unit has a nice, clean aesthetic that looks great in any setup.

Sound Quality

Sound Quality

The sound quality of the NR1711 is pretty good for a mid-range AV receiver. The unit comes with a 5-channel amplifier and can handle a maximum of 110 watts per channel. This should be powerful enough for most setups and will allow you to crank the volume without fear of overloading the amplifier. The sound quality is also pretty neutral so you won’t get too much bass or treble emphasis. In other words, this is a low-noise amplifier that will faithfully reproduce your content’s sound without adding any artificial effect.
