ideal for its purposes

A week with the Marantz M-CR511


Easy to set up and operate, good looking, glossy black and very compact. Remote is a bit large considering the size of the unit, sure they could have made it smaller. Attached to my existing Tannoy bookshelf speakers it has good volume to fill a medium...
