Marantz M-CR611 review


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

Great Funtionality


This does everything I need it to do, I bought it primarily for the internet radio which works very well. The sound could be a little more dynamic.

Great Sound


This little package is very easy to use and the sound is amazing. We bought one 6 months ago on a recommendation from Richer Sounds. We didn't know if it was the right kit for us. It was and we have just purchased our second one.

Great combination


Bought the M-CR611 after searching around for a new mini system. The Marantz came out best in class for my needs and coupled with the Monitor Audio Bronze 2s it does all that I need and more. Certainly exceeds my expectations and requirements. The...

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...
