Marantz | M-CR611
The moment you see the Marantz M-CR611 Network CD Receiver, you’ll know that this latest incarnation is pure refinement. With a high-gloss jet-black finish and organically curved side panels, the immediate impression is style and elegance. The centre comes in either black or apple white and the front colour illumination changes to white, blue, green, or orange for a customisable flourish.
All About Convenience
The Marantz M-CR611 not only looks superb, it’s also a superb performer, reproducing excellent CD-audio, FM, DAB/DAB+ and Network files. The Melody Media is designed with ease of use in mind and features a simple “one-push” Wi-Fi connect. New Bluetooth with NFC boasts connectivity options further and iDevices can hooked up via a front facing USB port, with an extra rear port for convenience. And there are two digital inputs for connection to a TV.
Brilliant Streaming Capabilities
The Marantz M-CR611 Melody Media now supports Spotify Connect, as well as a host of other digital media and streaming features. Alongside listening to millions of songs on the world’s most popular online music service, the Marantz M-CR611 allows playback of music libraries stored on a NAS (Network Attached Storage) or a computer, provides access to thousands of free internet radio stations, and even supports Apple AirPlay. Listeners can also take control via an Android and iOS compatible Marantz Hi-Fi Remote app.
