Registration on line?
to my surprise when I try to register the product on the Marantz site the NR1200 is not listed and therefore ( to this day I cannot register yet the product - regarding the quality I reserve some more time to test before giving my opinion. At the moment very difficult to connect the audio to the TV , Bluetooth communication with the TV set gives me a lip out of sync effect that I cannot correct - at least not yet. Very strange that I cannot connect a very normal audio Out from the TV set to any of the analog input of the NR1200

I bought this in mid 2020. One of the feature mentioned is "Bluetooth Headphone Transmission". But I am unable find any instruction in the manual on how to achieve this. Otherwise the NR1200 is quite okay for price I paid.

Excellent, quality as expected from Marantz! Would recommend and purchase again.
I recently purchased the Marantz NR1200, 2 channel receiver. I must say, so far I am thoroughly impressed.
Although I only intend to use the system for strictly music playback via phono, streaming and coupled with a cd transport, there is endless room for expansion.
The manual for this unit is literally 200 pages, but once you go through it, navigating the system is relatively easy.
I have paired my receiver with Klipsch RP600M bookshelf, a Cambridge Audio CXC V2 cd transport, Audio Technica lpw50pb manual turntable and will order a SVS SB1000 Pro subwoofer.

Amazing 2-Channel Amp for Beginner to Hifi
As a person just getting into a two-channel audio I was looking for a great amp/speaker system that I would not outgrow as soon as I got started yet was still reasonable for a new consumer. I quickly settled on the LS50 Metas (85db sensitivity - 4ohm speakers as the speakers but had a lot of options for the amp. After lots of research I was convinced to get the NR1200 and have been nothing but satisfied ever since. The NR1200 has just enough power to push the Metas to 103DB, so a perfect match for the Metas. In a recent test I hooked the Metas to a Macintosh 7200 (200W into 4ohm) amp and would have been hard pressed to notice any better performance despite the huge cost and feature difference.
I am also exclusively digital at this point and the onboard HEOS has been a game changer. The app works well and also is not specific to a device so you can install it on every one you have in the house if you are so inclined. This allows adjustment to songs and volume by any device not just the one you started the music on. One limitation to the HEOS for me is you loose some functionality of the specific apps like Pandora while in the HEOS platform. I can run a Pandora station via HEOS but not my playlists or other search features from this streaming service. This is not a real problem though because it’s easy to bypass the HEOS and stream directly from a device running the Pandora app to the NR1200 when I am in the mood. it’s easy to switch anytime between sources and yet alternate devices can still adjust the volume via HEOS even when bypassing via the Pandora app on a selected device. Having the ability to expand into analog/video sources down the road for me also helps to future-proof this great powerhouse. I don’t see outgrowing it’s capabilities for many years and even then there will still be a place for the NR1200 as a complementary system somewhere else in the house.

Mediocre NR1200 performance
Honestly, I’m disappointed with this unit. With all the technology available today, I can’t believe how difficult simple tasks are on this NR1200!
The HEOS app is confusing & connecting Bluetooth devices is a nightmare!
That being said, the 2 channels stereo, the AirPlay, and the separate A & B channel control ALMOST make up for the previous downfalls.
Considering it’s cost & the 6 month release delay and it’s technical downfalls..... I’ll say, I really expected more from Marantz.

Excellent stereo receiver
Excellent device hardware wise. Plenty of features and connectivity options. Receiver sounds nice. There is a room for improvement regarding software - HEOS platform. Built-in Chromecast support would be nice to have.

OK Amplifier, But has Some Issues
While I bought this amplifier with high expectations, the noisy relay and slight "pop" that I could hear through my speakers each time I turned it on, made me return it.
