Finally, a wide collection of digital and analogue inputs make connecting up your other music sources a cinch.

Alternatively, use the Bluetooth connection for a direct stream from your smartphone or other device.

For music, just ask

As a further bonus, the Melody X MCR612 features a built-in CD player. Marantz make some of the best CD players on the market, so it's little surprise to find this one plays CDs to a very high standard. For added flexibility, it will also play MP3 and WMA music files stored on disc.

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. Perfect for connecting sources such as your TV, games console or set-top box, the Melody X improves the sound of much more than just your music. 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).
