Stream via Bluetooth, AirPlay or DLNA. Play CDs or listen DAB/FM radio - the Marantz MCR611 simply does it all.

One system that streams it all

Packed within the MCR611's compact dimensions is a serious music streamer. Connect to your Internet hub via Ethernet or the upgraded Wi-Fi connection and you're ready to receive near limitless entertainment. vTuner gives you access to thousands of Internet radio stations from around the world. Or you can listen to your own music library via DLNA compatible streaming. Just link your NAS drive or PC into the hub and you're good to listen.

Ready for Spotify Connect
Spotify Connect uses your existing Spotify account (Spotify Premium account required) but seamlessly transfers it between sources. Listen to Spotify on your mobile device on your way home then, when you arrive back, transfer it to the Marantz system at the touch of a button. Whether you use 3G or 4G, wi-fi or LAN, AirPlay or Bluetooth, Spotify Connect simply keeps the music following - seamlessly.

Now with Bluetooth NFC
New to the MCR611 is Bluetooth NFC connectivity. In addition to Apple's AirPlay you now have the option of transferring music on your mobile or tablet via Bluetooth. With NFC (Near Field Communication), making the connection is as simple as tapping your device against the system.

Twin USB sockets for iOS connectivity
Connect up your Apple iOS device to the front or rear USB sockets and you'll not only enjoy high quality music playback but also charging of your Apple device - even when in standby.

CD player built-in
As an added bonus, the MCR611 features a built-in CD player. Marantz make some of the best CD players on the market, so it's little surprise to find the MCR611 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 feature over the MCR511 model is the built-in DAB/FM 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 up your TV and games console - now with two digital inputs
Around the back of the MCR611 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 MCR611 improves the sound of much more than just your music.

Quality sound from a class-leading player
As you'd expect from this highly respected hi-fi company, the Marantz MCR611 is a superior sounding mini system. A higher than average 50 watts (at 6 ohms) per channel gives it greater punch and depth of bass than many of its rivals. Added to this, the digital amplification uses less power than a conventional amplifier giving you the best of both worlds.

Twin speaker outputs with individual volume
Just like its predecessor, the MCR611 comes with speaker A/B outputs for music in a second room. Where the '611 goes one better, though, is in offering individual volume control for the second set of speakers. This means that 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 MCR611 is stylish yet unobtrusive. For a sleek appearance, Marantz have limited the button count to a minimum. You can control the Melody Stream via the supplied remote control or by an app for your Smartphone (Apple or Android).

One very neat system that not only streams but also plays your CDs and favourite radio stations; the Marantz MCR611 is the total all-rounder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully-featured system I have been using this media player for over a week now, it being a replacement for another well-known brand that had for years suffered from a jamming of the CD player. It is a larger unit than I anticipated but that is pleasing since the components will not be jammed tightly inside. Cons first - I use a substantial thickness of speaker cable but the speaker posts at the back proved to be very difficult to thread the cable into. It would have been much better for them to unscrew fully so that I could wrap the cable around. The digital aerial... that was such a pain to screw on, there was no reason that I could see since all the threads were perfect but it was the most frustrating part of the set up. Thirdly, given there are so many features, this should have come with an instruction book rather than a pdf, that only works if the hi fi is positioned next to a computer. Pros - plugging into my trusty Tannoy speakers (bought 4 years ago from Richer Sounds) I was up and running in minutes. The DAB radio came first since I listen to more radio than anything else. I needed to add a very small amount of bass and a tiny tweak to add more volume to the right hand speaker. Once that was done, the sound was clear and open, with a good stereo separation. Playing a CD was, as expected, a simple operation and, as with the radio, gave a good clear tone, with good stereo separation. I used an ethernet cable and so first had to wait for the firmware updates. The internet radio section was easy to get into but with so many different stations out there, that will be something for the future. I did test a few and each gave a decent reception. I would not normally play mp3 files from my pc or from a USB drive but using the ethernet cable and following the simple instructions it was easy to set up and I played files direct from my desktop. However, because this Marantz has to search for the files and then buffer, it was a lengthy time and so for people wanting to play files from a USB drive or direct from pc, I would suggest they create a new folder and copy over just a few albums, that will speed up the process. All in all, I am exceptionally pleased with the product and with the sound it is producing. I am hoping the CD section will stand a few years of wear since I do prefer to listen to my music direct from CD.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Started off well but it's all downhill! I purchased this unit in July of last year. Initially I was pleased with it but then had problems with the wi-fi connection and wrote a slightly critical report. Now, 9 months on, I am finding it one of the most irritating and inefficient pieces of audio kit I have ever had and would certainly not recommend it Looking at the various modes: a) Wi-Fi connection to hub. This is only across the room with a strong Wi_Fi signal, even so, it continually dropped out, at least 4 times a week. In the ned, I reverted to hardwiring via ethernet cable and this has proved more reliable, if unsightly. b) Dab radio. The Pioneer unit this replaced had just a small piece of antenna wire out he back yet received good quality DAB on numerous stations, as does my portable radio if placed in the same location. However, the Marantz has very poor reception, almost unusable, despite it now being connected to a DAB ariel up in the loft. c) Storage of Internet Radio stations. This is awful! It works for a few day/weeks, then decides to forget everything it has learnt. It won't connect to any favourites and you have to revert back to search mode to find a station. Having initially stored some 40 stations, it is incredibly frustrating having to go back and store them all again, especially when you know it is going to lose them all again d) Use with iPhone. Had been very good until recently. Now takes me up to twenty minutes to make the connection, again going back to basics and re-registering everything e) CD player - Hoorah! That works OK. f) The one feature that I DO like and that works well, is the ability to connect two sets of speakers and control them separately So, be warned, you may think it's great to begin with but not is just not reliable enough to be acceptable. Given my time again, I would have purchased an alternative. Just to add, this is not a criticism of Richer Sound (who I have always found to be excellent) it is just the product that is poor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all in one one of the best things I have bought this year, truly great sounds at a great price a beautiful piece of machinery the colours the sound its like your in amongst the music its like your there listening to it live or being recorded

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant all rounder Amazingly adaptable and easy to use media player that takes up so little room I had to find things to fill the space vacated by the former CD player and Amp. Powerful enough for all but the very biggest rooms with a great sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Good All Rounder I bought this to replace my very old hi fi. I selected it because it would do everything but particularly FM, DAB, CD and had other inputs. I bought it with the Monitor Bronze 2 speakers for a good package price. I also bought the Audio Technica Turntable LP60XUSB. It was easy to setup on the secure house network using the iPad and using the Marantz iPad app it is easy to control it and set up the favourite radio stations. There are three options for control front panel, remote and iPad. The sound is excellent. I have used Richer Sounds before and they were my first choice.
