Marantz MCR611

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 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.

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.

Wharfedale Diamond 220

Now well into its fourth decade, the Wharfedale Diamond 220 is resisting middle-aged spread to give a taut and youthful sound quality!


THE LEGEND CONTINUES - AGAIN!

It was way back in 1981 when the Wharfedale Diamond first redefined expectations of small speakers. The original model proved that a small speaker didn't necessarily need to sound 'small'. For the first time, a small, budget speaker could sound full-bodied without being intrusive. The latest Diamond 220 follows on from the highly successful 121 model and has already received an excited response.

NEW CABINET FOR IMPROVED SOUND AND FINISH
New to the Wharfedale Diamond 220 is a sandwich cabinet design. Rather than the simple chipboard and MDF used by the previous Diamond 121, the new 220 uses particle board sandwiched by MDF on either side. This new type of construction gives superb rigidity and damping properties, helping to further reduce the already low levels of distortion. A further benefit is the smooth, MDF surface offers up a cleaner surface for the veneer to be applied to; meaning a smoother finish all round. Also new is the gloss finished baffle, making the speakers far more pleasing to the eye. As before, the 220 ports the bass via an integral plinth, rather than the more usual front or rear holes. This not only provides a more efficient and even bass output but also makes the speaker easier to place as you don't have to take wall positioning into account - ideal in a speaker that's likely to be placed close to a wall.

ALL NEW DRIVE UNITS FOR A CLASS-LEADING SOUND
As before, the bass driver is formed from woven Kevlar and has ribs for added rigidity. What's new is a revised magnet system for even tighter control of the sound. Vocals still sound more realistic than you'd believe for a speaker of this price and the bass is upbeat and never lagging behind the rest of the mix. At the other end of the scale the treble unit is surrounded by a deeply dished waveguide. This helps to improve the imaging and 'width' of sound, making it easier to pick out individual instruments. The treble also provides loads of detail without ever sounding unrefined. Put together, the overall sound quality is still fantastically well-balanced and natural with a sense of realism that you wouldn't expect from a speaker of this price.

With its latest upgrades the Wharfedale Diamond 220 has truly come of age. If ever there was an argument for evolution over revolution in speaker design, a listen to the Diamond 220 proves the case for the former - and then some!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressive System Bought this to go in my kitchen / dining room. The system itself looks really smart in gloss black and suits the wharfedale 220's perfectly. Sound quality is really good, i'm no expert but to my ears it's excellent coping well with my musical taste ( dance, indie ) to my wifes tastes ( 60's, 70's), plenty of internet radio stations which i can now access with this set up, i can't recommend it enough, just can't wait till the speakers are bedded in and i can give it some proper volume. As always Richer Sounds Leeds were a pleasure to deal with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to setup and works wekk The Marantz MCR611 was delivered with the Wharfedale Diamond 220s promptly. Connection and setup was painless. It all sounds pretty good to my ears. I have a large CD collection and a fair amount of downloads on the PC. Together with the streaming service I now have a huge range of music available and easily accessed. Together with the DAB and Internet radio the system is terrific.
