Since the launch of the Marantz NR1200 I have watched regularly for a review, sadly the only thing I can find are regurgitated launch day write-ups most likely penned by Marantz marketing team. Lacking any reviews I decided to check with my local brick and mortar stores, the first a local chain that carries Marantz said it’s not something they will ever carry but can order for me. Left there and went to Best Buy and Magnolia, same answer as before. With that information I’m left with coming to a conclusion based on specs alone. Based on specs it’s probably a decent 2 channel receiver and streamer but fails at being a quality stereo home theater receiver. The dual sub outputs aren’t LFE’s, you can set the crossover for the subs but not the main speakers and lastly they did not include Audyssey. If the goal was stereo home theater, they failed. Too many of us don’t have the budget, room shape or a wife that will allow us acoustic treatment to their living rooms. The second way they failed is mentioned above, almost two months after launch they can’t get a review and no stores will carry it. I’m going to make a prediction that the NR1200 fails miserably, I only hope they go back to the drawing board and get it right next time.
