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.

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 Lovely piece of kit! Had this unit several weeks now and am over the moon with it. Packed full of features, including apple airplay which is what I bought it for really. Connects straight away to my iPhone 7 and Spotify and it will even turn the unit on if you select it on Spotify, so you don’t have to hunt around for the remote control :-) internet radio is also very good, there’s so many stations I hadn’t come across before. I use it with a pair of Dali Lektor 1 bookshelf speakers and an Acoustic Energy subwoofer in one room and linked to a marantz stereo amp and monitor audio bronze 5 in another room via the audio output phono plugs. Great sound all round and can’t recommend it enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile (lots of inputs), and quality output. I have used this 'mini streamer' for a few months before commenting. It is coupled (using bi-amp) to Wharfedale Diamond 220 speakers. I have tried it for DAB radio, CD playback (including using a comprehensive sound check), record deck (via 'analogue-in'), Bluetooth (mainly spoken word), and TV (via 'optical-in'). I am very pleased with the result - even though the 'tone controls' are still set to default (i.e. 'off). It would be useful if the different inputs could be normalised for volume, but that is a minor quibble. I very satisfactory result for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I think it's OK, but... I bought this a couple of weeks ago and have managed to get it to let me listen to the radio and to play CDs. I think it does a lot of other things, but the manual is on a CD or on-line and you need to be a techno-geek to understand it. I did manage to set up the Bluetooth connection to my lap-top PC, but I've disconnected it again because, even when it is disabled, when the PC is woken up the radio will switch off and go to Bluetooth half way through whatever you are listening to. I have no doubt that all this is my fault for being an idiot, but it's all very frustrating! I've given it 3 stars simply because of this; what sound I have heard is good. By the way, I'm not completely ignorant about modern technology - I can do quite a lot of things - but this has me beaten at present!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound quality, bit fiddly to set up This is the only all-in-one system with 4 speaker outputs under £1000, so for us the purchase was pretty much a no-brainer since we needed decent audio quality in 2 rooms. But the audio quality is surprisingly good for the price, and though setting it up was a bit fiddly, being able to control the 2 sets of speakers separately was a real boon. Also the connectivity was great for our uses. However fitting the cables was even more fiddly than sorting the settings thanks to the limited movement on the posts and the closeness of all connections to each other, and I would have liked a few more features for tv connectivity, though obviously it's not a dedicated audio amp. So overall a great if sometimes fiddly system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features. Great purchase. Replaced a Denon mini system. much brighter sound. Easy to operate. Handy phone app to control. Fiddle to set up WiFi link.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great little piece of kit Bought this a few weeks ago to modernise my old separates systems and I am very happy with it. Set up was straight forward out of the box. It might not drive my Linn Helix & Tannoy speakers quite as fully as my old, and now defunct, NAD 3240PE amp but the overall sound quality combined with the space saving and features at this price more than make up for that. As well as the included remote there is a downloadable phone app to control it through wifi. The app gets a lot of bad reviews but I've had no problem with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Marantz audio multi-function product This unit is every bit as good as the reviews would have you believe. The multi functionality of this product is amazing. Easy to set up - this unit brings my listening into the 21st century big time!
