Stream via Bluetooth, AirPlay or DLNA. Play CDs or listen DAB/FM radio - the Marantz MCR611 simply does it all.

One system that streams it all

Packed within the MCR611's compact dimensions is a serious music streamer. Connect to your Internet hub via Ethernet or the upgraded Wi-Fi connection and you're ready to receive near limitless entertainment. vTuner gives you access to thousands of Internet radio stations from around the world. Or you can listen to your own music library via DLNA compatible streaming. Just link your NAS drive or PC into the hub and you're good to listen.

Ready for Spotify Connect
Spotify Connect uses your existing Spotify account but seamlessly transfers it between sources. Listen to Spotify on your mobile device on your way home then, when you arrive back, transfer it to the Marantz system at the touch of a button. Whether you use 3G or 4G, wi-fi or LAN, AirPlay or Bluetooth, Spotify Connect simply keeps the music following - seamlessly.

Now with Bluetooth NFC
New to the MCR611 is Bluetooth NFC connectivity. In addition to Apple's AirPlay you now have the option of transferring music on your mobile or tablet via Bluetooth. With NFC (Near Field Communication), making the connection is as simple as tapping your device against the system.

Twin USB sockets for iOS and PC connectivity
Connect up your Apple iOS device to the front USB socket and you'll not only enjoy high quality music playback but also charging of your Apple device - even when in standby. The rear USB is ideal for a permanent connection, such as to your PC or Mac.

CD player built-in
As an added bonus, the MCR611 features a built-in CD player. Marantz make some of the best CD players on the market, so it's little surprise to find the MCR611 plays CDs to a very high standard. For added flexibility, it will also play MP3 and WMA music files stored on disc.

DAB FM radio
Another feature over the MCR511 model is the built-in DAB/FM radio. A choice of DAB and FM gives you access to a wide range of local and national stations. For ease of use, RDS (Radio Data System) is included on the FM tuner.

Connect up your TV and games console - now with two digital inputs
Around the back of the MCR611 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 MCR611 improves the sound of much more than just your music.

Quality sound from a class-leading player
As you'd expect from this highly respected hi-fi company, the Marantz MCR611 is a superior sounding mini system. A higher than average 50 watts (at 6 ohms) per channel gives it greater punch and depth of bass than many of its rivals. Added to this, the digital amplification uses less power than a conventional amplifier giving you the best of both worlds.

Twin speaker outputs with individual volume
Just like its predecessor, the MCR611 comes with speaker A/B outputs for music in a second room. Where the '611 goes one better, though, is in offering individual volume control for the second set of speakers. This means that you can pump up the volume in your main room while keeping it at a lower level in the other - or vice versa.

Stylish simplicity
Compact and curvaceous, the MCR611 is stylish yet unobtrusive. For a sleek appearance, Marantz have limited the button count to a minimum. You can control the Melody Stream via the supplied remote control or by an app for your Smartphone (Apple or Android).

One very neat system that not only streams but also plays your CDs and favourite radio stations; the Marantz MCR611 is the total all-rounder.

MARANTZ MCR611 MELODY MEDIA is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has everything you need on a mini hifi I recently upgraded from old Marantz 603 to the 611. I had no problems with the 603 but before I bought the 611, I thought I'd look at other model (Denon,Yamaha,Pioneer),there was nothing on the market at the £300 mark to compete with the Marantz. I wired my old trusty BX2 speakers up and the sound was unreal, god know what the Monitor Audio Silver 1's or 50's are gonna sound like,when I purchase them. Everything about this unit is brill,the internet radio,the Bluetooth. Anyone who buys this unit won't be disappointed. Setting up the wifi and all other settings up was very easy

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Marantz MCR 611 I'm trying my best to like the MCR 611 but it can be rather frustrating. On the upside the sound quality is good and detailed, I like to be able to play music from a variety of sources. When it works I think it was a good choice. On the downside: after a few days it just refuses to play any internet music or usb files - it just locks up as it scans for files or sources. Yesterday I left it running overnight but still no joy by morning. This happens not just now and then but again and again every few days. Full reset and set-up required and then we start all over again. It's starting to become a little tedious now... Cd and radio sources work find though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little box of tricks Having held onto my old hifi separates for too long a sudden failure caused me to look at a replacement component. I stumbled upon this little box of tricks which seemed exceptional good value. plugged in and wired to my ancient AE109s I was pleasantly surprised how easy I was up and running. instant connections to the internet and then the NAS drive Due to the small format I now have space in the it streams from the NAS drive I just have to think of what to do with it. I am no audiophile but I like the sound its just perfect for me. So if you have yet to make the leap its worth a try and at the price not a big leap either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent piece of kit I did quite a bit of research for some audio which gave me loads of options going forward and hopefully included some aspect of future proofing. As a great music lover i was looking to play my CD collection as well as be able to play my MP3 & Flac files that were sitting on my windows PC. Being a big fan of radio i wanted access to DAB and internet radio as well. I am extremely pleased with my purchase which meets all my needs. It was extremely easy to set up and the only item that took a bit of time to sort out was picking up my MP3 etc files off my PC. The PC needed a few settings to be changed and that was it. The airplay function is excellent and the Marantz App is good. There is some delay when playing the files on my PC but that is down to my wifi which is slow. i am really pleased with the spakers as well which sound and look excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great little system I eventually gave in to my daughter's complaining about not being able to line-in or Bluetooth play lists to my 30 year old Pioneer multi-CD system. Hi-fi's have certainly changed since i last went shopping for one. After some research I made a list of wants and visited my local Richer Sounds store. The staff were helpfully, knowledgeable about the products and suggested a couple of systems; one of which was the offer of the week, the Marantz MCR611. I opted for the Marantz MCR611 and I am very pleased with my choice. The MCR611 was easy to connect to my existing wireless network. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. From unpacking to use was about 30 minutes. The choice of radio stations on either internet radio or DAB radio is awesome and having access to my music collection on the computer means their is always something to listen too. My daughter connects via Air-play with no issues. The system has hardly been off since being installed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent unit, plenty of! I wanted something that had Bluetooth, usb and DAB. Was I impressed, does everything I needed along with internet radio, DAB +, and regular system updates so future proof too. Connected the Marantz to some existing speakers ans also added my technics speakers as you can add 2 sets of speakers and have volume independant of each other. I have some hifi seperates but this unit now is my go to unit with spotify, etc, sound is fantastic. Would i recommend.....YES YES YES.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great product from Marantz This is my second mini HiFi first one was the Pioneer XCHM86D that failed The Marantz is a fantastic unit not the best looking, as I prefer the traditional look proper volume knob as opposed to up and down buttons that are on the Marantz the other down side is the piano black gloss plastic finish I prefer brushed aluminium but these are personal preferences the sound is fantastic giving rich bass and plenty of mid and high range has 4 speaker posts so can use in multi room or Bi-wire, controlled via remote or app this does all the basics. Spotify Connect works without fault. Display is large although could be a little brighter also has two lights either side of display these can be changed colour or turned off. The Marantz does an excellent job driving my Wharfdale 10.2's with plenty of bass. I was a bit reluctant to purchase this unit but I am so glad I did.
