Hi-Res Audio

The NR1508 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. 


 



Audyssey MultEQ for simple set-up


Dual Subwoofer Outputs

A single subwoofer demands optimum placement within the room for the best bass response: depending on its location, the low-frequency response at the main listening position can be uneven with audible peaks and dips. The NR1508 supports two subwoofers: used in different locations, these will even out the low-frequency response for more accurate bass anywhere in the listening area.

  



Smart TV Connectivity

Via the HDMI CEC (consumer electronics control) functionality on some Smart TVs, it's possible to control the NR1508 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.

 


Simple Smart Select Functions

4 Smart Select function buttons on the remote control will store your preferred setup - input, volume and Audyssey configuration - for particular sources. The push of just one button has the NR1508 perfectly configured for anything from Blu-ray or your TV set-top box to your favorite Internet radio station.


 


Easy To Setup, 
Easy To Use

For easy installation, the NR1508's horizontal row of premium loudspeaker terminals is color coded, with a set of matching cable-labels supplied to ensure correct hook-up. The AVR's clear graphical on-screen display has an exclusive Setup Assistant, combining with the Quick Start guide to provide guidance and optimize critical settings for the best possible sound quality, whatever your configuration.
