Marantz M-CR603 review

 

Stylish micro hi-fi trying to add some curves to go with those phat sounds

Fantastic sound, whatever the source ; Remote control app ; Multitude of inputs and streaming services

No wireless on base model

The Marantz lacks wireless networking, but its sound quality more than makes up for it

Marantz M-CR603 review

 

The Marantz M-CR603 is one slick, fully loaded little system that's more than capable of running top-notch speakers

Lovely looks and great usability ; will play music from almost anywhere ; cracking detail and rhythmic precision

A slight faff to add AirPlay ; no wi-fi

Best micro system £400+, Awards 2011. Great to use, listen to and live with, this Marantz micro is a high-tech marvel

Sound quality is great and its looks nice as well.

Quite pricy but if it lasts a long time it's worth it.

Compact Design, great range of sound source features, good sound quality.

An HDMI input for sound would be useful

Seems easy to use, haven't used it much yet.

No 'open' for disc on remote.
