Marantz M-CR611 review


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

Great functionality Smooth and forgiving Large scale Clean sound

A little too laid back dynamically Lacks attack

There’s no doubt that the M-CR611 is an extremely tempting buy based on its feature list alone, but we wish it had more sonic attack to back it up. Yes, it’s easy to listen to, but we want something more from it in order to hold our interest over...

Great Buy, and Ace Service


Great, does everything it says and does it well, I like the internet radio and this seems to be more reliable than my old Denon. Also like the two sets of speaker output. Good sound and excellent value.

The only product that I could find in its class, with A and B speaker channels with split volume . Feeding 2 pairs of Monitor Audio Bronze 2's. Fantastic room filling sound with full control with overall quality that one might expect from higher end...

Consumer review (

Disappointing radio controls.


FM, DAB and internet radio station searches are very awkward and slow. The menus are a menace. Reasonable hi fi sound. A bit too much bass, too little clarity (using Audio Monitor Bronze 2 speakers).
