 Marantz NR1403 Slimline AV Receiver
(2012 Model)

  As a five-channel slim-line AV Receiver, the NR1403 also offers a host of connectivity options. Fans of devices such as camcorders and a variety of smartphones or tablets will love the front panel HDMI input for easy and instant video / music enjoyment. The 5x 50W output can be used for a simple stereo set-up but is also powerful enough to run a full 5.1 system, creating spectacular surround sound and converting your living room into a sensational cinema. You will also be pleased about the easy set-up - with the help of the Setup Assistant, Audyssey MultEQ and Microphone there is no need to study the manual, just follow the on-screen instructions. In addition, the NR1403 has separate on-board decoders for both standard and high-definition audio such as DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD, while its total of six HDMI inputs, whereof one is on the front, handle a multitude of digital sources, so you can easily hook-up your satellite box, BD/DVD player, game console and camcorder… all at the same time. All with just one HDMI cable connected to your screen. It all adds up to fabulous sound, great video quality and elegant slim-line appearance.

  • 5+1 HDMI Inputs /1 HDMI Output


Without compromising on audio or video quality the NR1403 is far less dominating than most AV receivers. With a height of just 105mm, it is around fifty percent lower in profile than even its slimmest competitors and nearly half the height of some of the more portly models.


Although the NR1403 gets off to an impressive start with its looks, it's still the sound quality that really impresses. With an EI transformer and good quality components the NR1403 sounds far more powerful than its slim height might suggest. Furthermore, as with all Marantz products, the sound quality is first-rate. To enhance the sound quality still further, a Source Direct function bypasses the decoding circuitry for a purer, more accurate sound with stereo music. Also included with the NR1403 is MDAX2 compressed audio restorer. As the name suggests, this enhances the sound from MP3 sources and provides near CD quality from your MP3 or iPod recordings.


In terms of home cinema functionality, the NR1403 has all the formats covered. A raft of Audyssey processors includes EQ for HD audio formats, Dynamic Volume to reduce the level of commercials and Dynamic EQ. Working in conjunction with this ideal speaker set-up you'll find Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD decoders offering full HD audio reproduction to match HD vision. The results are accurate surround sound with amazingly pin sharp imaging and a truly enveloping sound quality.


The NR1403 also makes few, if any, compromises when it comes to socketry. The latest version of the NR1400 series now comes with six HDMI sockets - including a very handy front-mounted socket. As before, all are the latest version that supports 3D video and audio return. A full range of composite, phono and digital audio connections make the NR1403 every bit as flexible as its full-size rivals.


Like most modern AV receivers, setting up the slim Marantz is far easier than days gone by. Audyssey MultEQ uses a supplied microphone to automatically set the correct speaker levels depending upon the room's acoustics. Similarly easy to use is the Graphical User Interface with Setup wizard. Not just slim, but stylish too, the Marantz NR1403 uses a three-part sculptured front panel to reduce the visual bulk still further. There can be little doubt that this is one of the most attractive looking home cinema receivers in its class.

Unless you need huge amounts of power, the Marantz NR1403 is full of home cinema brilliance without the bulk.

Up to 90 Day Returns!

Returns are easy and flexible. We will accept returned goods up to 90 days from purchase with the following restrictions as summarised below. For more details please read our Terms & Conditions of Sale, a link is shown at the bottom of the home page.

Changing your Mind
It's OK to change your mind but please be aware that all goods must be returned in as new, unused and re-saleable condition. This means that all packaging must be intact, all accessories are complete in their original wrappers and any free items are also returned with the goods. Essentially the product must be returned in the same condition as you would expect to receive a new unit in. In all cases the cost of returning the goods will be the customer's responsibility. All faulty items must be returned complete and will be repaired under the manufacturer's warranty.


How we Handle Returns
Depending on how long you have had the goods there are different options availble to you. In the case of faulty items, if the item fails due to a manufacturing fault between 1 and 28 days from delivery we will exchange it for a brand new one of the same model. Any items which are found faulty after 28 days from delivery will be repaired under the manufacturers warranty. For returns where you have changed your mind, please find our policy below:


This is were you return your item and we will exchange it for another item of equal or higher value. If the item you wish to change to is of higher value you only pay the difference. If the item is of a lower value we will issue you with a credit note for the difference which you can spend with us at a later date.

Credit Note
This is where you return your item and we issue you with a credit note which you can use against another purchase with us.

This is where you return your item and we issue a refund back to the same method you paid with. e.g. the same credit card. This is not available after 14 days, only exchange or credit note is available after 14 days.

25% Restocking Fee
If your item is returned to us between 29 and 90 days from delivery we will charge a restocking fee of 25% of the price you paid for the item initially. This will be deducted from the value of the exchange or credit note which is issued to you. This is because  technology in the AV marketplace moves fast, and as a result the value of items decrease very quickly.

Please note we do not accept returns after 90 days, except for repairs under warranty.
