All your music in one place

Featuring wi-fi, Bluetooth, Internet radio, HEOS and a huge range of built-in music services, the Melody X has you covered for streaming music. It goes much further, though. A CD player lets you keep on spinning your favourite discs. DAB and FM tuners let you listen off air. Finally, a wide collection of digital and analogue inputs make connecting up your other music sources a cinch.

Huge range of streaming options – including Apple AirPlay 2
When it comes to streaming music your way, the Melody X is ahead of the game. Apple AirPlay 2 is now standard and Amazon Prime Music, Spotify (Premium account required for full features), TIDAL, Napster and Deezer are all on board. There’s also TuneIn for Internet radio and Bluetooth music streaming.

Works with Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth
AirPlay 2 takes this popular wireless streaming format and makes it better. Controllable by simply asking Siri or using your Apple device, AirPlay 2 lets you effortlessly stream music and podcasts around your home – and all in perfect sync. Alternatively, use the Bluetooth connection for a direct stream from your smartphone or other device.

HEOS – multi-room magic
HEOS multi-room music systems connect together by dual-band Wi-Fi, making them easy to set up with your existing home network. Up to 32 HEOS units can be set up at one time, ensuring even the largest of homes are covered for multi-room music. With HEOS already built-in, the Melody X is ready to go as a single ‘zone’ without any further adaptors.

For music, just ask
With support for Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple Siri, the Melody X has your every request covered. Simply add an Alexa or Google Home device or use Apple AirPlay for effortless voice control of the main functions, such as volume and input.

Plays CDs
As a further bonus, the Melody X MCR612 features a built-in CD player. Marantz make some of the best CD players on the market, so it's little surprise to find this one plays CDs to a very high standard. For added flexibility, it will also play MP3 and WMA music files stored on disc.

DAB FM radio
Another very handy feature is the built in DAB/FM tuner radio. A choice of DAB and FM gives you access to a wide range of local and national stations. For ease of use, RDS (Radio Data System) is included on the FM tuner.

Connect your TV and games console - with two digital inputs
At the back of this versatile system you'll find two optical digital inputs and one RCA phono analogue pair. Perfect for connecting sources such as your TV, games console or set-top box, the Melody X improves the sound of much more than just your music. As a further bonus, it even works with your TV’s remote control – perfect for adjusting the volume or mute without having to use two remotes.

Twin speaker outputs with individual volume
For music in more than one room, the Melody X comes with speaker A/B outputs. With individual volume control for the second set of speakers, you can pump up the volume in your main room while keeping it at a lower level in the other - or vice versa.

Stylish simplicity
Compact and curvaceous, the Melody X is stylish yet not intrusive. For a sleek appearance, Marantz have limited the button count to a minimum. You can control the Melody X via the supplied remote control or by an app for your Smartphone (Apple or Android).

Hear all your music, at its best, with the Marantz Melody X MCR612.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item lacks punch though Happy with the item and especially with the service but I was expecting a bit more punch from the sound, bit more powerful sound for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very flexible all in one system. I wanted something to replace my arcam solo system. This all in one system which includes CD player, Internet and DAB radio and music streamer works a treat. On recommendation from the chap at Richer Sounds I’ve paired the system with Dali Oberon 1 speakers. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and great sound I wanted a unit that could stream high quality audio without using a laptop or phone as intermediary. The marantz connects straight to the wifi easily, and delivers great sound. I mostly use it for the internet radio and highest quality streaming on spotify, it's been great for both of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sound and convenience Bought this primarily to be able to play high res music from Amazon Music HD which it does brilliantly, even up to 192kHz/24bit. I have put all my ripped CDs and purchased music on a 512GB USB stick - some of which is unavailable via streaming. Easy to control via app on my phone and obeys Alexa via the Echo dot in the same room. As it also serves as the amplifier for TV sound I our sunroom, the automatic switch on when the TV is turned on is extremely convenient. No complaints. Should have got one sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality product Quality product I bought the M-CR612 about 1 Month ago it’s really easy to set up and the sound quality is great wish I would’ve bought it sooner thanks Richard sounds

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Something to explore but has a great sound I have had the unit for about two weeks but wasn't able to use it with the speaker system i had. Went back to Richer Sounds and after some advice I purchased some Fyne Audio F300 speakers. They make a fine combination with excellent sound quality. The speakers also make fine pieces of furniture. Both great buys and looking to explore other functions in the weeks to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A superb all-in-one I was looking to replace an ageing Arcam Solo and came across this Marantz box of tricks. THe Stockport branch manager was really helpful on the phone and despite the difficulties with cv19, he arranged for my purchase to arrive within 3 days of ordering. I couldn’t be more pleased with my purchase and the Marantz does everything I need and more besides. I can now stream all my cd collection stored on my nas system together with my Spotify collection. The detail is crystal clear and pairs nicely with my Mordaunt Short speakers. All in all a worthwhile purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marantz mcr612 I bought the marantz mcr612 10 days ago and I am really pleased. I have connected it to a pair of Dali Spector 2 speakers and a denon home 250 wireless speaker. The sound from both types of speakers is very good and so good that I am buying another denon home 250 speaker

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality features Really happy after a week. A bit tricky to set up the WiFi manually and figure out how to control the external output volume, so you need to get the detailed manual online, but it's worth the effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent features and great sound Bought this as an update to my existing old stereo system and to enable the addition of a turntable. This system has great features with DAB/FM on board CD player and loads of connectivity via wireless and bluetooth and an analogue input. Very easy to connect up with the quick start guide, although the full manual is a download and not supplied in paper form. The sound quality (paired with some DALI speakers) is really very nice and my old vinyl is sounding better than it did in the 70s. If you want to connect a turntable to the analogue input make sure the turntable has a phone stage output, otherwise it's too quiet as a 'line in'. Overall I'm really impressed with the quality of the system and I'm looking forward to trying it out with some other digital and optical connections.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good all rounder I bought this a couple of weeks ago as a replacement for similar item I had owned for five years but had broken twice the last terminally. New to Marantz this M-CR612 was what I was after. DAB and CD player being the main reasons but also being able to plug in the turntable and use it occasionally to put the sound through from the tv. Have done this on all counts with great success. Sound is good and the tv sound through the optical port is very good. Set up was easy and linking to the WiFi was a doddle. As I did so it showed on the screen that a firmware update was available. Downloaded and installed in minutes. On set up the prompts are on the screen guiding you through it. In the box is a quick start guide and a more detailed manual is available on line. All in all a very good piece of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you could need! Bought this to replace a separate Amp and CD Player combo as I wanted to add option of streaming without adding a third box! Had my eye on this for a while but hesitated as I thought the sound quality would suffer. Wish I'd made the change sooner as the sound is in my view better than before - Marantz has a way of making music sound musical and natural. Add in to this everything that this can do, and in my view it's a real bargain from a great trusted brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In different league to 611, great sound separation 612 replaced 611 and is a vast improvement in every respect, comparing very very well against Musical Fidelity A3.5 which was 4 times the price!
Date published: 2020-03-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super compact unit with excellent spec. I've had this a couple of weeks now and it replaced an 'oldie but goody' separates system. The spec ticked all the boxes on my wish list and it was easy to install. The DAB aerial is a bit temperamental but I just need to spend a bit more time getting it optimally positioned. Value for money is good and service from Richer Sounds was excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little black box that packs a lot of punch! This is a great unit that not only looks good but sounds great and can play from so many different sources.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny. Had quality time at Richer Sounds, York to demo Ruark R4, Technics Ottava and Marantz Melody Cr612. Was blown away by difference a ‘true hi fi’ sounds compared to the ‘all in ones’. Bought with Dali Spektor 2 speakers my Marantz is terrific. Bluetooth is easy peasy. The dab is great even with flimsy cable provided. Beethoven, Pink Floyd and Michael Bublé used in demo room. All sounded fab. Marantz was my choice all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall brilliant This system provides clear crisp sound,good separation of sound, deep levels of base, and wonderful treble. Beats any system for its size I have owned in 30 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The features I need and excellent sound I bought this two weeks ago, having compared it with other products and found this combined the features I need - eg. CD player and streaming services - and the amp is of a very high quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, and all features just work, Got this unit as warranty replacement for pioneer x-hm86d. Pioneer was rated 65w into 4 ohm, marantz is 60w into 6 ohm, so for my 8 ohm speakers marantz will output 45w. Whereas pioneer only managed 32.5w. I found the speaker response feature really helps stop speaker being driven with bass it cant handle, as I set it to cut bass below 60hz. Sound is really good. vs the pioneer the main difference is whatever input you choose it just works with no drama or quirks and in a consistent way. Presets available for fm, dab and internet radio. Only thing I wish is that it had a volume knob instead of buttons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feature, great sound I found it difficult to set up, but with the support of the stores help, all issues were solved

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great spec. and excellent value. I bought this to replace my old and excellent Cambridge 640 system as it was starting to creak a bit and was taking up more space than I wanted and lacked some facilities like Bluetooth. I wasn't expecting the sound to be as good despite putting it through the same Mordant-Short speakers, but I've been pleasantly surprised. With the tone controls as they come, the sound is clean and well defined for classical music, jazz and rock and speech quality is excellent, and stays so from low to very high volume. Bass is a little lighter than the 640, but can be boosted with the dynamic bass setting or the bass tone control if you want to really feel it in your bones. Set up was easy and intuitive (which is just as well as there is no paper manual - you have to download it), although I've not played with Wi-fi yet and so can't comment on that. And the bonus is that the unit is tiny, so I've got loads of free cabinet space now. Overall, I'm delighted with the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything to bring your music collection together I had been bemoaning the fact that I hadn’t played the records in my vinyl collection for years so I bit the bullet and shelled out on a new system. A Marantz MCR612 combined amp CD player and streamer, Sony PS-HX500 turntable and B&W 607 speakers. My music has never sounded better. The Marantz is a joy to use whether listening to CDs or streaming via Spotify or Amazon, linking via Airplay or Bluetooth, DAB radio or listening to vinyl on the Sony deck. It does everything I wanted in one relatively small box. The speakers have great sound from not too intrusive units. Can’t recommend this combination enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, and comprehensive set of features Really good product, and excellent price at Richer Sounds. They had one sent from another store and phoned me when it arrived. Good service.
Date published: 2020-01-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and suits our music needs I bought this to handle an old school requirement for CD playing and the ability to stream and connect in multi rooms through Sonos. It’s does everything we all want. The sound quality is great and the Marantz is easy to set up and use.
Date published: 2020-01-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service Was really happy with the service, knowledgable and friendly. I had a problem with the sound and they offered to come to my house to sort. Anyhow it was not needed but the service and knowledge is what you need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding from Marantz I was very sceptical about the sound quality as I was replacing a Musical Fidelity amp to gain the networking on a budget, I need not have worried as the sound is awesome through my KEF IQ7 speakers. It was simple to set up and using the HEOS app makes it easy to operate and can link it to my Amazon echo and have a number of other WiFi speakers if needed. All in all a great piece of equipment at a very reasonable price with this sale price from Richer Sounds (RS). I must say the store I bought it from (Croydon) were very helpful and made my choice easy so thanks again to them. Oh and the sound when watching tv as I linked the Virgin box by toslink cable and the Chord speaker cables both bought from RS help make the sound awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pitch Perfect The Marantz Melody X is perfect for a number of reasons, it’s compact size, as I don’t have a lot of space. However, the sound quality is not compromised. It looks great too, so do the speakers. Easy to operate with the hand set. Together with a good price and great service at the shop i’m Well pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from one box does all I have only had this for a couple of weeks. It was simply time to sort things out and update a lot of different and partly working boxes to make music. I had a new turntable to digitise a fairly large collection of vinyl. So. First, the amplifier delivers a clean enough sound for the likes of me. Plenty of kick to it and with a good range. An online manual is a pain... trying to find out "how to" simply takes ages. Increase treble and bass.... certainly not "intuitive". Using as a monitor to vinyl playing, clean and crisp. All I could wish for. Wish they had put a "Grnd" terminal but a loosened retaining screw to the back plate will do the job. CD player. Good, clear and lots of detail in the sounds. Copes with full orchestral as well as solo wooden flute. Radio. I live in poor reception area for DAB and this unit cannot deliver at all. The internal aerial provided could just about deliver a signal for FM. BUT... it has internet radio.. and with cable delivering powerful signal for internet this radio gets any station in the world from the net. Bright and crisp in all stations. So who needs DAB? I will buy a an amplified internal for the DAB but no need to rush. Will be a couple of weeks before I finish reading that manual... I would not describe myself as knowledgeable in modern kit and what is possible. I have a small box with a small footprint. Clean and good looking and able to deliver good sound from CD, Radio and vinyl. The price was excellent and I feel I have good value for money. I ordered this unit at 21.25 hrs on Christmas Day. Richer Sounds delivered in 5 minutes less than 36 hours. Remarkable. No fuss, no nonsense , just delivered in extraordinarily quick time.
