Connect your TV and games console - with two digital inputs
At the back of this versatile system you'll find two optical digital inputs and one RCA phono analogue pair.

As a further bonus, it even works with your TV’s remote control – perfect for adjusting the volume or mute without having to use two remotes.
Twin speaker outputs with individual volume
For music in more than one room, the Melody X comes with speaker A/B outputs. With individual volume control for the second set of speakers, you can pump up the volume in your main room while keeping it at a lower level in the other - or vice versa.
Compact and curvaceous, the Melody X is stylish yet not intrusive. For a sleek appearance, Marantz have limited the button count to a minimum. You can control the Melody X via the supplied remote control or by an app for your Smartphone (Apple or Android).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Too old to have one from Mrantz-Melody XM-612 (Silver/Gold) Having had advice from Jack the store manager and further guidance from Will his deputy,I purchased this item and have been highly satisfied with its performance.Being an elderly person and lacking the skills to explore its full potential, I somewhat think it can offer more, but nevertheless I am well satisfied. Full marks for the Hanley store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great all-in one sound system Having done a lot of research mostly online, I decided on an audio test with Tayla at the Guildford Richer Sounds store. Given this is intended for my bedroom, it’s not a large space hit the audio test with some smaller Dali Oberon 1 bookshelf speakers gives the best balance for volume and range of music I listen to from classic, pop, rock and metal. Am pleased to say the system was delivered together and easy to set-up. Although still in the burning period for the speakers, I’ve been impressed at both moderate and lower volumes on clarity and bass when needed. The Marantz unit gives, internet, dab radio as well as CD and connectivity for my Spotify account. This means all my music needs are met more than adequately. I’d like to call out a special thanks to Tayla, who’s advice and help getting the right set-up and the demo was excellent to help convince me that despite my research and alternatives available, this was the right system for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nissanke from Richer Sounds' Customer Service This review is primarily about Richer Sounds' customer care. We experienced several issues with our original Marantz music system, bought 2-3 years ago, from the very beginning, culminating with a serious fault with its CD player, generating a screeching noise and losing volume control. However, the retailer's, Richer Sounds', response has been highly commendable. They sent it away immediately for repairs and, noting manufacturer's prolonged failure to take any action, they took it upon themselves to replace the unit at their own cost. As a customer, I highly appreciate this kind of no-quibble approach to customer care. As a music system, Marantz M-CR612 is a very good one. It is extremely good value for money. However, much is to be desired from its manufacturer in terms of after-sale customer service and repairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wilberforce W from MARANTZ Melody CR612 Wonderful piece of hifi equipment. Plays music from several sources, CD, DAB radio, bluetooth, line input etc. The DAB radio works well even on Radio 3 with just the supplied indoor aerial. Sound quality exceeds expectation. Works well with various speakers: Heybrook Sextets, B&W CM1, DM601 and QUAD S2.
