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 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 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.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Danger, internet software updates may detrimental You will need to update software, yet this may kill some functions like in our case, the CD player, yet if you update software it disqualifieys your product warranty... at least that was the case with the last version of this product which we purchased 3 years ago. We very much like the unit, but very unhappy that the CD no longer works and no attempt to take the unit back to original software set up works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DOA I am a great admirer of Marantz's mini-systems and already have two older versions. Thought I would trade up to the latest version. Really wanted to like it. Unfortunately it was dead on arrival. Huge disappointment. No power. Have asked RS to refund me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Amazing, best audio equipment I've ever listened to. Paired it with Dali Oberon 1 speakers which are superb. Expensive set-up but I should have done it years ago - really brings the best out of my CDs. Thanks to the staff at the Cardiff store for all your help!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding I have found Richer Sounds the best place to buy my television and music system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the connectivity and sound quality is good Good little unit which does everything. I particularly like the 2 sets of speaker outlets which can be individually control, including separate volume controls. DAB reception is a bit variable despite being in a strong reception area but internet radio makes up for this and I might invest in an exterior aerial.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Learning to love the best audio kit I ever bought Brilliant - love it! One box replaces my Marantz amp, CD player, DAB/FM radio and internet radio, plus there's Bluetooth capability. It took a while to get familiar with controls and options - it's hardly intuitive - and initial experience was very frustrating. The well-designed operator manual has to be found online and takes a lot of printing if you want a complete hard copy. At this level, Marantz should provide a printed booklet but then I'm absurdly old-fashioned. Some functions should be simplified; for example, one toggle for switching bass boost on and off. Persistence brings the reward of superb performance. Sound output is brilliant through decent speakers. I live in a poor reception area for both DAB and FM but the 612 does a strikingly good job of producing clear dropout-free output, even pulling in listenable DAB from distant multiplexes hitherto unreceivable, using only a single dipole mounted 2m above the ground and feeding into one F socket for both modes. Internet radio functions perfectly. OK, there are if anything too many stations and the fascination of variety tends to wear off but once you've built your list of favourites the facility becomes useful rather than novel. The optical inputs are especially useful to me as a MiniDisc enthusiast. There are two, plus an analogue input. With the (apparent) vinyl revival, some might find the absence of a dedicated phono input a disappointment. Overall though - absolutely fantastic. Even my wife likes it...now that's weird.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic compact unit Having now put a lot of hours through this unit, it is now time for a review. I bought this on a whim and a bit of a 'stand-in' for a 90s amp and CD player that require repair. Frankly, they are instant replacements for both! Don't let the small size fool you, this is no 'kids bedroom' stereo, but a proper grown-up hifi! I have it paired with Monitor Audio Bronze 2 standmount speakers and whilst I haven't yet used the internet-based services, the CD and DAB play beautifully. A really clear, clean yet warm sound, a lovely wide and tall soundstage and serious power too. Having optical and RCA outputs, plus pre-out and sub-out connectivity really enhances the usability for me. A tip for anyone buying this. DO take advantage of the bi-amp feature if your speakers have two sets of binding posts each and you can stretch to another set of . The difference over the standard and 'Parallel BTL' setting is noticeably improved, with greater clarity and an even better soundstage. A fantastic product, worth every penny and great service from the Manchester as ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing features... Brilliant unit can't recommend highly enough. Sound quality is exactly as the industry reviews said it would be. FM, DAB, Internet radio and CD all sound great. Choice of internet stations is staggering and it's so easy to find a genre that is interesting. Can save over 100 favourite stations (probably more like 300 but I'm nowhere near using all of them) . Using HEOS app is easy and adds more usability to the unit. Quite a big investment for me but so far really pleased that I've spent this much money for a unit that sounds so good and has so many features. Haven't been to Richer Sounds before but would definitely recommend their no pressure, knowledgable and helpful staff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Detailed sound Purchased the Marantz Melody X with a pair of Monitor Audio Silver 50 speakers. The sound quality is superb. The Marantz has a very good CD player, The internet radio is excellent and it was easy to set up the preset radio stations on internet radio. The Melody X is a compact music system which gives a sound quality that we feel is amazing for its size and price. If you pair up the melody X with quality speakers you will achieve the hi fi quality sound of a system that could cost hundreds of pounds more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow - What a system I purchased this hifi system with a pair of Dali Spektor 2 speakers & the sound from the Marantz is extremely good. The Marantz has plenty of power & will easily run any speakers you use with the system. The sound is open with plenty of bass weight a cohesive & expressive midrange & a sweet treble. This system sounds as good as a separates sytem costing similar money & more. The system packs a comprehensive feature list with wifi connectivity, networking tuner with dab+ plus & fm, a high quality cd player, Bluetooth, etc. The quality of the product is extremely high from the way the system looks, feels, operates to the components used on inside the unit. If you want a system that gives you seperate hi fi sound but in an all in one unit that gives you lots of features, flexible & fantastic build & sound qualitty then i highly recommend the Marantz X-CR-612

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact all-in-one. I got this Marantz to replace a faulty Cyrus. Given that it is about a third of the price the sound is excellent. I can only detect a marginal difference between this and my last unit. As well as DAB, internet radio great CD reproduction - all the features you need are there- I also get great TV sound through my hiding speakers. If you want an all-in-one look no further. As usual the staff in the store were first rate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressed, after bad experience with MCR611 Except for internet radio, all systems work very well, with a pleasing sound through my Mission 71s. Access to internet radio is clumsy compared with that on the cheaper model, and seems restricted. I was surprised how well the HEOS linked with my old Samsung tablet, which now holds almost 100Gb of CD tracks. As with the 611, the bodge-up international/UK mains plug doesn't fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good piece of kit Bought this to replace my separates, was dubious at first as I’m a traditionalist usually, have got 4 speakers wired in into different rooms so the function to switch them about is good. Also good to have the different input options like a turntable, Bluetooth, DAB , internet and of course the trusty CD
Date published: 2019-07-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mostly really good I saw this advertised and thought it would be a neat upgrade to an ageing TEAC unit. Setup to the wifi using a smartphone was simple. DAB and internet radio was soon running with favourites added. I brought a couple of optical cables, one for the TV and another for an old Mac that I'm using to play music from an external hard drive. It sounds pretty good with the old speakers and I'm now thinking of getting some modern ones to make it sound even better. A few minus points - I didn't get a dab arial in the box but I had old one anyway. I couldn't get the USB input at the back to work at all. I had been planning to use that for an external drive but nothing would be read, neither that or flash drives. However I used the second optical input instead, as mentioned above. Overall a good product - I can even turn it on and off and change volume with an amazon echo dot.
