Marantz M-CR611 review


This box of tricks has all the features you want, but needs more sonic attack

Great functionality Smooth and forgiving Large scale Clean sound

A little too laid back dynamically Lacks attack

There’s no doubt that the M-CR611 is an extremely tempting buy based on its feature list alone, but we wish it had more sonic attack to back it up. Yes, it’s easy to listen to, but we want something more from it in order to hold our interest over...

Marantz mcr611


I've had this for less than a month and it worked fine to start with but since the latest firmware update it no longer recognises the WiFi rendering it as useless. It was also recommended by the shop to fit banana plugs this was a waste of time and...

cool kit


its a great piece of equipment but I am old school. I like buttons that work instantly and not computerized systems that have to boot up and think about things. But I can run it of my phone and that's fair trade off for the boot up lag.

Great all rounder


Bought the package with monitor bronze 2 speakers and really pleased with the sound. Hitched up the TV and my old mini-disc and it all works well together. Better than my separates system. It really is a great all rounder.
