"If you are looking for a receiver that can cope with music as well as it can with cinema sound then this is one of the best (if not THE best) receivers to look at. Recommended as a 'Best Buy' from Home Cinema Choice, we love its performance on stereo music."

A lot of AV receivers do a great job on cinema but fail to deliver what is promised on stereo music. Of course, if your receiver is intended to be used as a cinema amp only then stereo music won't matter to you. The Marantz NR1605 however is built to provide great sound whatever you listen to.

The compromise? You might get better cinema sound from a receiver aimed just at cinema - but you'd lose that rather beautiful stereo sound that you get with this receiver!
