Networking Capability for Music Streaming
AirPlay allows for wireless music streaming from any room in your home.
Built-in networking functionality makes the NR1602 an ideal media center. The Ethernet port lets you stream audio from online music services, such as Pandora, Rhapsody, and Napster, as well as from your home network. Additionally, built-in AirPlay allows you to stream music wirelessly from your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.
You can also access Internet radio stations with the built-in v-Tuner. As an added convenience, the NR1602's two-zone capability lets you listen to music in one room while playing a movie in another.
Although this product is equipped to operate with Rhapsody and Pandora, these services are not currently available in Canada.
Compact Design Saves Space
At just over 4 inches high and 14 inches deep, the NR1602 can fit on a standard-size shelf with room to spare. The Slim Line design means extra space for additional components without a cluttered look. Despite being only half the height of most traditional receivers, the NR1602 boasts a wide array of features in a quality steel and aluminum chassis.

On-Screen Wizard Simplifies Setup
The receiver features auto setup and room calibration and allows you to navigate setup on your TV screen via HDMI. Plug in the included calibration microphone, place it in your favorite seat, and run the setup wizard. The Audyssey MultEQ automatically analyzes your room's acoustic properties to determine the optimal settings.

Seven Audio Channels Produce a Theater-Like Experience
For an enveloping surround sound experience, the NR1602's amplifier delivers seven 50-watt channels of equal power and quality. The result is a balanced sound field capable of faithfully reproducing the most demanding movie, gaming, and multi-channel audio.
A 2.1 channel preamp output offers system upgrade possibilities. Use the Dolby Pro Logic IIz feature to add vertical dimension to the front soundstage or add additional speakers to the rear of your room with Dolby Pro Logic IIx.
Clear, Pure Audio in High Def
The NR1602's hi-definition audio support lets you take advantage of the latest surround sound formats. From Dolby TrueHD to DTS-HD Master audio, the NR1602's on-board decoding reproduces clear, uncompressed 7.1 audio via HDMI.
There's also a 192kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converter for all channels and an isolated audio circuit board for improved sound and minimal interference. Source Direct mode switches off all unused circuitry for the purest audio possible.
M-XPort for Bluetooth Devices
Enjoy audio playback from a variety of sources, including laptops and cell phones, using the M-XPort input. By connecting an RX-101 Bluetooth receiver module (sold separately) to the NR1602, you can wirelessly stream audio signals from Bluetooth devices that feature A2DP compatibility.
Front-Panel USB Connection for MP3 Devices
A front-panel USB connection allows direct playback of iPod, iPhone, and USB drives. M-DAX onboard audio expansion circuitry, MDAX, restores your compressed audio files to supply missing high-frequency information, resulting in near-CD sound quality.
