High Resolution Audio

The NR1608 lets you discover the incredible fidelity of high resolution audio tracks via the front panel USB port or network sources, with the ability to decode 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). You can also listen to other popular file types, such as MP3.

ECO Mode
ECO Mode

The Eco mode provides energy savings: it features an on-screen Eco meter, while it’s also possible to use the receiver in power-saving mode, either reducing the maximum output power or adopting low-power strategies at more modest settings – and all without any effect on the superb sound quality.

HEOS Wireless Multi-Room Music Streaming


With built-in HEOS technology, the NR1608 becomes a key component of the HEOS wireless multi-room system. Add more HEOS speakers, and enjoy your music anywhere and everywhere around your home, all controlled via the free HEOS app. Play the same song in every room, or a different song in every room.

Multiple streaming services can be played on the NR1608 or any other connected HEOS devices, including Spotify, TuneIn Internet radio, Sound Cloud, Tidal, Napster or Deezer (*). You can also stream music from your phone, USB stick, or local network drives, with favourites and playlist functions supported. *Availability differs by area, subscription may be required.

Smart TV Connectivity
Smart TV Connectivity

Via the HDMI CEC (consumer electronics control) functionality on some Smart TVs, it's possible to control the NR1608 with the TV's remote handset. With the receiver's "HDMI control" set to ON, set "Smart Menu" receiver control functions and the TV's Smart Menu home screen will provide you direct access to source and surround mode selections, the main setup menu, and Smart Select configuration presets.

Multi-Source / Multi-Room
Multi-Source / Multi-Room

Whatever your family's entertainment needs, the NR1608 delivers: you can enjoy 5.2-channel surround sound in the main room, and at the same time play stereo sound from another source in another part of the house. Simply connect a pair of speakers to the multi-room amplified outputs, or hook up a separate stereo amp and speakers to the Zone 2 pre-outs.

Audyssey MultEQ
Audyssey MultEQ

Using the measuring microphone and stand supplied, Audyssey MultEQ measures the speakers in your home theatre, including the subwoofer, and then applies multiple high precision DSP room acoustic correction filters, providing the smoothest, most natural tonal balance - regardless of the brand(s) or model(s) of speaker.

Dual Subwoofer Outputs
Dual Subwoofer Outputs

A single subwoofer demands optimum placement within the room for the best bass, to even out peaks and dips in response. The NR1608 supports two subwoofers: used in different locations, these will give a smoother low-frequency response for more accurate bass anywhere in the listening area.

Built-in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and AirPlay


The NR1608 is equipped with an advanced dual antenna system for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi streaming, for a robust connection even in congested urban environments. Apple's AirPlay lets you listen to your favourite tracks wirelessly from iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads.

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:

Returns

Exchange
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.

Refund
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.
