Marantz Melody X system ticks all the boxes

Marantz Melody X streaming, compact system


The new Marantz Melody X compact system is, as is typical for a Marantz product, a brilliant blend of high performance, useful features and great value.

The Melody X - also known as the M-CR612 - is a CD receiver with streaming functionality. Just add speakers for a very versatile yet compact performer. There are optical and analogue inputs for hooking up other devices, such as a TV or record deck. For radio listening, there's DAB, DAB+, FM and TuneIn internet radio built-in. Streaming methods include Ethernet, wi-fi, Bluetooth and AirPlay 2. Streaming services, including Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, Amazon Prime Music are all catered for.

The Melody X features clever amplification. It can power two pairs of speakers with individual volume control for each pair. Partnered with two pairs of speakers, the Melody X provides 30 watts (6 ohms) per channel. However, if using the system with just a single pair of speakers, that extra power does not go to waste - the Melody doubles up the power to 60 watts per channel.

Other features include voice control compatibility with Alexa, Siri and Google Assistant. The Melody X can also be combined with other HEOS products to become part of a multi-room set-up.

The Melody X is available in black and silver-gold finishes.

The Marantz Melody X system is a one-box system that ticks all the boxes. Offering such great sound quality and versatility, no wonder the Melody X has received the EISA award for Best Compact Stereo System 2019-2020. It's in stock at Hi-Fi Stereo.
