Best Compact Stereo System
(2019 - 2020)

"Combining style and simple operation with flexibility and striking performance, the Marantz ‘Melody’ series of compact systems has long been attracting plaudits – and the M-CR612, or ‘Melody X’, is its best yet."

The Marantz Melody X M-CR612 is an elegant network CD receiver that supports near limitless streaming platforms through AirPlay 2, Bluetooth and HEOS WiFi connectivity. Connect your speakers to the Melody X through four high-efficiency digital audio amplifier channels and enjoy the most musical Marantz audio. With two optical digital inputs, you can even connect your television for elevated entertainment experience. The built-in DAB+ and FM tuners as well as TuneIn Internet Radio complete the set of music sources. If music matters to you, the Melody X is the number one music system to choose.

As well as CD and FM/DAB+ radio playback, you can enjoy your favourite digital music through the HEOS app. Enjoy music from Spotify, TuneIn Internet Radio, SoundCloud, Tidal, Napster, Deezer or your local music file libraries. With additional HEOS components like the HEOS speaker range or other HEOS-capable receivers, easily play all of your music in one room or many. AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth let you easily stream music and app content directly from your smartphone.

Styled in a high-gloss black or a classic silver-gold finish, the Melody X offers a beautiful look to complement its superb performance.

I'm using this all in one Hi-Fi gem mainly as a pre amp for streaming and playing cd's and I have to say I really like the way it sounds. Nice, precise tight base sound, not too piercing a treble, The what Hi-Fi 4 star rating this unit got had me hesitating in upgrading. Well it must just have missed the 5* mark by a whisker. I also own the older sibling "M-CR603" which was 5* and yes the two sound different but I don't so far prefer one over the other, they are both v good - 5* to my ears.
