Make the most of your mini hi-fi. View our hottest deals on speaker cables.


Stream your digital music via Bluetooth or USB, play CDs, listen to digital radio and connect up your TV – the compact Marantz Melody M-CR412 plays it all.

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.

Bluetooth sound
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The size is the key. Going to the shop with only a limited knowledge of audio equipment, so with the choice that was available, it was not long before the helpful and very knowledgeable salesperson guided me to what I needed and saved me a lot of confusion and lead me to a well: near-perfect fit for my needs. The CR412 is proving to be very versatile in performance and size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marantz melody m-cr412 This was an upgrade to an older denon dm37. Ben in the Edinburgh store gave me a demo of the marantz and even paired up speakers similar to mine so I could get a realistic demo. Nothing was too much trouble and the service was amazing, I found it cheaper elsewhere and the price match was no problem too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Excellent customer service as always - I always shop there... These guys were just so accommodating when I tested 5 speaker combos. I like the build quality of the 412 - stood out from competition - and does what we are after. My son and I thought the Dali Spektor 2's sound great with it. Easy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent sound and supports range of inputs Bought this to replace a 30+ years old JVC system which has been great but started to malfunction. Kept old 8ohm speakers. Sounds as good as the JVC with advantage that it's much smaller, and has DAB radio as well as FM, Bluetooth, USB (not tried yet) and optical link to TV. Indoor FM/DAB aerial not really adequate, hooked it up to external aerial.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality product, very impressive I bought this to replace (only due to lack of space in my new house) a much loved and cherished separates system. I wasn't expecting it to be able replicate the quality sound I had been used to, but it sounds absolutely marvellous. Really good value for money, excellent bass and detail, a very enjoyable sound to listen to

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the wait ! I placed my order for my Marantz back in May after spending a lot of time researching my options and this particular model, the Melody 412. Through no fault of Richer Sounds there was a long wait on delivery of the product due to a chip shortage….but now having got my hands on the 412,..boy it’s been worth the wait ! This bit of kit just exudes quality form the moment it appears from the box and took moments to set up. I could not be more pleased with the sound quality either. All in all I’m really pleased with my purchase and have no problems recommending it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loaded with functions, sounds great!! Although it didn’t arrive until three months after I had paid for it, I think the Marantz Melody M-CR412 is such a lovely and worthwhile bit of equipment, not only because of its sound, of which the volume can reach quite high levels, but also its many functions and features, which add so much to the system. It has an equilizer that includes bass and treble, which will enhance your experience, and a choice of Source Direct, where the CD’s original sound can be selected. I was not disappointed with the additional capability of an alarm, which it is possible to set for specific days. There is a good sound for the DAB radio, which is simple to set up, and easy to navigate. Very good value for the cost, however it could benefit from a PC connectivity - although it sports an optical cable connection and USB and Bluetooth and AUX. I’m impressed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks and sounds cool I bought this Marantz mini-system having read about it on the Richer Sounds emails. I am very impressed with it's appearance and depth of sound and the is the cheapest model in the range. Would recommend to anyone who wants a decent system for a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marantz M-CR412 Great product, excellent customer service. Had to return some speakers that came as part of the deal as I preferred a different colour and the whole process was easy and hassle free. The customer services person I dealt with throughout the whole process couldn't have been more helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good purchase I deliberated long and hard about buying this, as it's a bit more expensive than the unit I previously had. But I'm so glad I bought it, it has a serious amount of functionality, and it sounds really good. One of the main draws for me was two sets of speaker outputs, and I can't fault it. Sounds great in all input modes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service and product I wanted to get back into vinyl without spending a fortune, Richersounds costed me several options before I settled on a mini hifi system and turntable. Nothing was too much trouble, delivery was swift and I am really pleased with the sound and quality of these products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Five for Hi-fi I had a Denon cd receiver for years and hesitated over the Marantz but I am so glad I switched - richer sounds indeed. Excellent service too, well packed and altogether what I hoped for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound and neat design I ordered this a couple of months ago knowing it was out of stock and no eta known at that time. It arrived last Monday and I can confirm it was definitely worth the wait

Rated 5 out of 5 by from what a great piece of sound kit took twice as long to arrive as planned, but i guess you have to accept that in the current climate. i was offered in good faith an 'instock' upgrade but wanted to hang on specifically for this model.... glad i did ! so far its producing a great sound and being able to access all my colection and different sources of music in one place is fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich, full sound I was looking for something to replace my cd player of 30 years which had finally packed in. Settled on this CR412 after reading the Cambridge did not have gapless playback. It was out of everywhere, but Richer Sounds took my number and called me back when it came back in stock.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No WiFi connection Unfortunately this was bought, and whilst I took advice from the sales team, they mistakenly advised me it had WiFi connection. I know Zero about Tech!!! So I've had to return it. BUT I would still use Richer Sounds without hesitation as the customer care has been excellent and they were apologetic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, brilliant sound Bought online, a relative novice to the world of hifi etc - took a punt on this and couldn’t be happier - links to TV via optical which is great, superb Bluetooth connection. Really easy to use and to set up. Support from in store when I needed cables was first rate

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Marantz melody I’ve been hesitant about buying a new system as my existing separates are still ok, but I’ve been increasingly frustrated with the inability to mix what I gad with newer streaming services. The marantz melody solves all those problems. Painless connectivity, up to 8 devices, and top sound. I am a happy man, Miles Davis hasn’t sounded to zfresh for years, and man, we are digging the bass grooves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant big sound Super happy with the Marantz. Got it hooked up to Bowers &Wilkins speakers - the sound is rich and warm. We listen to a broad range of music including of heavy rock and metal - this is a great system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound. I bought this to replace my 'old' player. Initially, I bought (online) an unsuitable product via the Richer Sounds website, but my lack of knowledge was not an issue with the Brighton staff who ensured I didn't feel a bit stupid. They offered me this CR412 as an exchange with no fuss at all, and I am very happy with the product and cannot speak highly enough of the staff's commitment to excellent customer service. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deafness gone! I expected great sound from a Marantz and was not disappointed. At my age (71) I was afraid that I wouldn't appreciate the quality of the sound. I needn't have worried! It was as if my hearing had actually improved and I have spent the last week playing all my favourite music from Bach to Bix Beiderbecke and back just to hear how much better it sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First class product, service, delivery! Purchased a new Marantz system with turntable.... Wanted to also connect extra items (Synths etc) but was worried about connectivity. Stuart helped me every step of the way.... The gear arrived with 48 hours... BRILLIANT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great solution for a small space Absolutely delighted with the Marantz Melody. I only got it after ordering a Cambridge Audio One which turned out to have a deal-breaking flaw – namely the inability to play CDs gaplessly (unlike every other CD player I've owned since 1984 – this has been noted by other customers in reviews of the One). That was never going to be acceptable as a lot of my CDs (especially operas) have dozens of track points that need to be read without inserting a gap in music. Thanks to the instantly helpful customer service from Richer Sounds I was able to arrange an exchange and was advised that the Marantz Melody would be a good option, and would work gaplessly (it does). It performs just as it should: an excellent CD player with very clean, clear but refined sound (through a pair of Mordaunt-Short speakers). It's ideal for what I need, to play mostly Classical CDs. I'd strongly recommend it to anyone looking for something similar. I've yet to set up an external aerial for the DAB radio, but the stations which the supplied bit of wire can pick up (not many) come through loud and clear so I assume it will work very well once it can receive more stations. The build quality is up to Marantz's usual standard and after a month of using it I haven't found any problems. I'm still pleasantly surprised by the quality of the sound that comes out of such a compact, all-in-one piece of kit. Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spot on Due to covid restrictions I had to buy online and so took a lot of time and trouble in researching reviews and recommendations. Space constraints ruled out separates which narrowed the search. Ultimately the Marantz won on power output and the facility of adding A and B speakers. Set up was simple, Bluetooth worked immediately, DAB is crisp and the power output is simply stunning with no distortion even at ear bursting levels. FM reception is not great by comparison. I have added a 64gb usb stick which allows hours of unbroken listening and although I am only using MP3 the output is excellent. I have paired Dali Spektors with Cambridge Minx speakers which complement each other brilliantly and the optical connection hugely enhances the TV sound. Finally my ancient vinyl has really been brought to life via the connection of an AT LP3. I am absolutely delighted with the new set up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up, great sound Originally wanted denon dm41 to replace dm40 that started playing up, but wasn't available due to covid malarkey so went for this one - yes it's £150 more, but it seems a lot sturdier & hopefully will last a lot longer!!
