Marantz has knocked a tonne off the asking price for this stylish, specced-up micro hi-fi. But will the drop in price seal the deal?

Clean, punchy and precise, the cheaper price tag transforms the Marantz M-CR502 into a killer micro system

Marantz M-CR502


The Marantz is now better value, and at this price its combination of precision and detail means it deserves five stars

Great styling ; impressive spec ; exceptional precision and timing ; clean and precise sound

Needs careful matching of speakers to avoid overly clinical sound
