Built-in HEOS technology lets you enjoy your favourite music in any room of your home for a wireless, whole-home audio experience. Play the same song in every room, or select a different song for each connected room — the choice is yours. Enjoy music from Spotify, TuneIn, Sound Cloud, Tidal, Napster, Deezer or your local music file libraries. With additional HEOS components, like HEOS-capable speakers, play all your music in one room or many.

Adjust the volume, skip to the next track, switch inputs for your media players and more — “Just Ask.” Download the HEOS Home Entertainment Skill to enable Amazon Alexa voice commands for NR1509, HEOS devices and other select Marantz products.


High-resolution Audio Support


Ability to decode high-resolution audio ALAC, FLAC and WAV lossless files up to 24-bit/192-kHz, as well as DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz tracks (the audiophile format of SACD) lets you enjoy music exactly as the artist intended. Listen to your music via the front panel USB port or over network sources.


Integrated Phono Input


Easily connect your analog turntable to the receiver and enjoy the pure intent of each recording within your vinyl collection.


Marantz 2016 AVR Remote


The Marantz 2016 AVR Remote app for iOS and Android gives you complete control over the latest Marantz network AV receivers. Use it to power on/off, adjust volume, input and settings, or switch instantly to the HEOS app.


Audyssey MultEQ for Simple Set-up and Room Calibration


Optimize your audio experience with Audyssey MultEQ, Dynamic Volume and Dynamic EQ for a seamless setup of your listening environment.

With the supplied measurement microphone, MultEQ analyzes each speaker's output (including the subwoofer) and generates precision digital filters that optimize each channel for the correct frequency and time domain response. Use Audyssey Dynamic EQ to deliver clear dialogue and wide-band response even at reduced volume levels, or Audyssey Dynamic Volume to avoid shocks and normalize volume when content switches between commercials, announcements and TV programs. The MultEQ Editor app (available for purchase) allows you to customize the sound more precisely to the specific problems in your room and tailor the sound to your personal preferences.


Dual Subwoofer Outputs


Supports dual subwoofers for even, low-frequency bass response within your listening environment. Enjoy accurate bass with no audible peaks or dips no matter where you place your subwoofer.


Smart TV Connectivity


Easily control the receiver with your Smart TV remote via the HDMI CEC functionality associated with your Smart TV. Simply set “HDMI Control” to ON in your receiver, then set “Smart Menu” to ON and begin controlling the NR1509 with your TV remote. The Smart Menu home screen gives you quick access to source and surround mode selections, the AVR's setup menu and four Smart Selects.


Simple Smart Select Functions


Four Smart Select function buttons on the included remote control store your preferred setup — including input, volume and Audyssey configuration — for particular sources. With the push of a button, the receiver perfectly configures for any source, from Blu-ray to TV set-top box, to your favourite Internet radio station and more.
