True hi-fi sound from a compact system
Using high-grade audio components, the Marantz M-CR412 delivers crisp and natural hi-fi sound. Although compact, the M-CR412 still has room for a powerful amp, CD player, DAB/FM tuner, USB input and plenty of other sockets for all your sources. It’s the complete system.
Powerful sound and twin speaker pairs
Within the compact casing is a powerful, 60 watt amplifier (rated at 6 ohms). This delivers powerful, room-filling sound and makes the system compatible with a wide range of speakers. Use a second set of speakers with the system and the power is still a respectable 30 x 4 – ideal for large, open-plan spaces or music in another room.
For easiest way to access your stored digital music, digital radio and music streaming services, simply connect your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. This wireless connection makes it easy for you, friends and family to stream favourite music from Spotify, Deezer and other music sources.
Quality CD player
With over 35 years’ experience in making award-winning CD players, Marantz is one of the most respected brands out there. The M-CR412 delivers the punchy and engaging sound you expect from Marantz. It’s also highly versatile in its playback. WMA, MP3 and AAC files are all compatible, as are CD-RW discs.
DAB radio built-in
Featuring a built-in DAB, digital radio, you can enjoy a host of extra radio stations. From BBC Radio 1Xtra to 6 Music and Radio 4 Extra, there’s a wide range of extra choice on DAB radio. You also benefit from hiss-free, digital sound.
USB input for digital music playback
For the highest quality connection for playing your digital music files, use the USB socket at the rear of the system. Once connected to your USB media device, you can stream digital music files, including top quality Hi-res music.
Suitable for Hi-Res music files
Compatible with a wide range of Hi-Res music files, the M-CR412 supports WAV, FLAC and ALAC up to 192kHz/24-bit and DSD 2.8/5.6MHz playback. It’s also compatible with gapless play, for smooth uninterrupted playback of longer pieces of music.
Connect your TV and other sources
Two optical digital and one RCA analogue inputs let you connect an additional three sources. The opticals are ideal for a TV and games console while the analogue RCA suits a turntable (with built-in phono pre-amp fitted) or other analogue source.
Works with your existing TV remote
Another reason for connecting your TV to the Marantz Melody is that it learns your existing TV remote. This means you can use your TV’s remote to alter the volume on the Marantz – keeping it simple when you just want to watch the TV.
Enjoy hi-fi sound from a compact system, with the Marantz Melody M-CR412.
”It's the baby in Q Acoustics’ recently launched Q3000i range, and among the finest speakers you can buy for this money.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review.
Improved cabinet for even lower distortion
At the heart of these revised speakers is a much-improved cabinet. P2P (Point-to-Point) bracing is now deployed to enhance rigidity and reduce cabinet distortion. Reducing cabinet distortion lets the drive units operate at their optimum, giving a cleaner, purer sound.
Revised drive units
With their newly developed surrounds, the bass units are even more accurate and faster to respond. The coated paper woofer cone is light, rigid, and helps give the 3010i’s their punchy, agile sound quality. The tweeter units are decoupled from the rest of the cabinet, meaning that the treble isn’t affected by vibration from the bass unit. With clarity and purity of sound at their heart, the 3010i’s are amongst the most natural-sounding speakers in their class.
Ideal for smaller rooms and home cinema
At a height and depth of just over 25cm, these compact speakers are perfect for a wide range of applications. Ideal for smaller rooms or even desktop systems, the 3010i’s give an impressively full range sound – even without a separate subwoofer. Alternatively, if you’re looking for top quality home cinema sound, the 3010i’s make ideal satellite speakers – especially when combined with the matching sub and centre speakers from the 3000i-Series.
Four finishes to suit your style
With its distinctively designed, rounded cabinets, the 3010i is a stylish speaker. Choose between four different finishes and you can get the look that’s perfect for your home. Choose between Graphite Grey and Carbon Black for a technical look to blend well with your other hi-fi components. Alternatively, Arctic White looks great in modern interiors. Finally, the English Walnut vinyl finish is the ideal complement for both antique and contemporary wooden furniture.
One of the finest small stereo speakers in its class and equally impressive as part of a home cinema system, the Q Acoustics 3010i raises the class standard yet again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Splidge1 from Wonderful sound from such small units Parked the unit in my kitchen/conservatory with the 3010’s on the wall using the Q brkts. Well happy with the sound. Chose Marantz as have a 20+ year old Marantz CD player still going strong which offers great clarity. It’s a bit of a gamble purchasing without hearing but not disappointed. Build quality of the 412 isn’t great all plastics but it’s out the way. Q3010’s look & sound perfect for their location & size. *My only issue is price dropped by £30 now....bad timing I guess.
