This AVR app does not connect to my new Marantz NR1606 receiver. I would've thought Marantz would have a very good receiver app as I was always under the impression they were one of the premium brands. Apparently not Marantz... It would be nice if Marantz would Ante-Up and create a good AVR app for all their customers that spend Top Dollar on their product... Anyway, I am extremely disappointed at this point... What can you do Marantz...?!
Average Apps From day one to current always have remote app connections issue finding the device. I even took the precaution of adding a performance tri-band gaming router for fast data transfer and signal range. But i don't play video games, just wanted to be safe than sorry. 90% of the time my NR1606 cannot find the device and for the past month i cannot connect to Pandora remotely or from the receiver. My opinion and conclusion is you equipment are one of the best, however this app aggravates me every time.
Pretty good with only minor issues I apparently am one of the few people who likes this app! The only thing which doesn't work well for me is the volume function. Everything else works with practically no lag but the volume just doesn't work with me. I would like to have this fixed and it would be perfect in my opinion!
I'm rather surprised how bad it is You would think that for such a high end product, that has had a lot of care put into it, could never allow such a disgusting app. Marantz should be embarrassed. Its has made me regret my purchase. They are clearly not as good as they sound
UPDATE: bad app is now worse, it's completely broken on Android 8.1 running on Pixel 2. Previous review: Consider another receiver -- seriously. This app makes Marantz equipment essentially unusable. Consider buying from a company that understands software. FWIW... the last receiver firmware update actually made problems worse. Connections drop constantly. Usability is poor when there in a connection. Another frustrating problem is the complete inability for the receiver to shuffle when the request is made from Android. Making the shuffle request from iPhone or web works. Which is just baffling, why should the platform used to make the shuffle request even matter after the request is made?
Had problems on galaxy s5 running marshmallow, but fixed with a reset It works on my old s4 that is running lollipop, but my s5 has the marshmallow update and it keeps restarting the app when I select the av 7701 from the devices screen. ^^^ update ^^^ I did a factory reset of my S5 and this app works fine now. It was something with the phone that was messed up.
*If the App doesn't work properly, please try to reboot your mobile device, unplug the power cord of the main unit and reinsert into the power outlet or check your home network.
