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 streaming amp with CD player I moved into a house with pre-wired ceiling/patio speakers & wanted to find a one-box solution to use my CDs as well as have streaming radio & music. I had almost decided on the Yamaha WXA-50 but it needed a separate CD player and then I found this Marantz unit. It has speaker A & B and I needed to connect 5 pairs so it was either use the Marantz in parallel BTL mode where A & B where the 4 built-in amps drive a single output but then I needed a 5 channel (or more) speaker selector... or, use A & B separately. I talked to the helpful Richer Sounds guys and they said the latter would be fine so I have speaker A going to the AV-Link 4-way selector and speaker B to the patio. It works really well, the patio speaker (Monitor Audio Climate 60-T2) is awesome and I only ever use 2 out of the 4 channels at any one time on the AV-Link so I believe it's all safe. You can change the volume on A & B independently so party-time loud outside and not so load inside! The HEOS app is a little clunky but it does what it needs to do. Top-tip, download the user manual and read before setup. It's not that it's complicated but I would have saved a lot of time if I had done this. Overall this is a great bit of kit, I've no doubt the Yamaha is very good also but for a tidy one-box solution I think this just wins it out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exemplary customer service. Chris at the Leeds shop was brilliant from our initial phone call to the delivery of the item. A day later they honoured the RS promise to match the lower price I spotted elsewhere. I've been a RS customer for 30+ years and never had a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and Sound The Marantz Melody XM - CR612 is a very stylish hi-fi system, its compact design makes it suitable for any room in the house. Setting it up is easy with the OLED display showing text instructions through each stage of setup. The sound quality is excellent very crisp and clear using the Dali Oberon 1 speakers that I purchased at the same time It has a CD player, DAB tuner, TV and Blu-ray connections, music streaming, voice control and multi room streaming, only downside is I am having problems setting up the internet radio channels, but otherwise I can not fault this system. Highly recommend purchasing from Richer Sounds, staff are patient and very knowledgeable with special thanks to Steve who assisted us with our system.
