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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jon 76 from Sounds as good as it looks. I bought this unit as a replacement for my Denon M40 on which the CD tray had stopped working and so glad I did. It is an excellent piece of kit and cannot recommend it highly enough. I bought a Marantz CD player back in 1990 and its still going strong. That shows what a good brand this is!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Delnoydel01 from Marantz CR412 worthy successor to the PM712 I was unsure about changing out my HI FI in an upstairs room from a long held Marantz PM712 amp and associated CD to a combo unit the MCR412 but I needn't have worried as the new unit is a superb smaller CD receiver worthy of the Marantz tag. Apart from saving a serious amount of space the new unit has just about the same facilities and sound (albeit without the Class A of the previous model). Perhaps it a little unjust as I also have new speakers (the B & W 607) but the smooth and effortless power is there, the bass and the detailed mid range make this a serious contender (if not the market leader ) in the small compact size CD receiver options. Excellent all round with good looks and plenty of options I would highly recommend it if you are looking for this type of combination unit around the £500 mark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peter 128 from Fits the bill exactly I needed a system to fit a small space with DAB radio and connect with a turntable. The Marantz was recommended by the store staff and fulfilled all my needs. An added bonus was the facility to connect with my TV to get better sound.
