The new AV receiver will join Marantz's existing line of slim models, including the NR1504 and NR1403.
The Marantz NR1403 is a slim, handsome AV receiver with excellent sound and plenty of HDMI connectivity, although it lacks built-in networking.
Onkyo's TX-NR525 is a solid AV receiver value, especially considering its affordable accessories, but competitors offer integrated wireless features for not much more.
Onkyo's TX-NR626 is a value-packed AV receiver with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and even a turntable input, but it's just short of being our top pick.
Marantz has introduced two new slimline AV receivers, while keeping last year's $400 NR1403 in the line.
The HP Spectre TouchSmart XT is a rare superslim 15-inch laptop with a touch screen, but for the premium price, it should include more high-end extras.
The Onyko TX-NR414 offers the best AV receiver value for those with a tight budget, although the step-up TX-NR515 model is worth the extra cash if you can afford it.
The Onkyo TX-NR616 is a tremendous AV receiver value, with eight HDMI inputs and a very low street price, although Onkyo's step-down models may be an even better buy.
The Marantz NR1403 is slim, handsome AV receiver with excellent sound and plenty of HDMI connectivity, although it lacks built-in networking.
The TX-NR525 offers a lot of HDMI connectivity for the money, but it's not quite the best value pick if you want wireless audio streaming.
