Outstanding audio quality. Terrible network setup.

  • Summary: I had my first experience with setting up and installing one of these for a customer. Normally customers request Sonos for wireless multi room audio. However. this customer is more of an audiophile and is not happy with the quality of the Sonos sound. I set up the M-CR603 to the network ( which was a royal pain ) and connected a pair of Anthony Gallo Acoustics CL2s. The sound quality was outstanding considering that the speakers and speaker cables were not broken in.

Exactly the shelf unit we were looking for

Dave Finton, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: We were looking for a simple CD player with audio inputs so that we could play our CDs and also plug in our record player (the player had a pre-amp so we didn't have any need for a phono input). Going to Best Buy resulted in a lot of blank stares from the sales folks who were expecting us to by a thousand-plus dollar entertainment system. We even went to a locally-owned audio equipment store and they didn't have anything like this in stock.

Amazing Sound

  • Summary: Amazing sound for such a small unit, but the networking is sub-par. Installing firmware took forever and I had to use a wireless bridge to feed off the WiFi and it disconnects all the time.

Hoping to update this review later

  • Summary: The Marantz is a solid piece of AV equipment, and it worked great... for about 4 days, and then just stopped working. Red blinking light of death... send to an authorized Marantz dealer for repairs... So I returned to Amazon, for an exchange. We'll see how this new one works out. I REALLY want it to work out, and I want to give it 5-stars, let's hope the second time is a charm. Amazon was great, no complaints there.

The Three Phases of Marantz

Oscar G Hernandez "OGH", Amazon
9 June 2013
  • Summary: I got this little Network player because I didn't want to use the 2nd rate amplifiers that come built into CD players. The contenders were down the Onkyo, Teac and Marantz. Because of the ratings and specs I chose this little wonder. It is very easy to set up except for the internet connection which will be the next step. This will require a wireless adapter to link into my home network. The unit was a breeze to set up and play basic CD material.

Does what is says

Branch, Amazon

  • Summary: Excellent receiver/CD player combo. Has ethernet connection to LAN, which is great if it is easy to run cable from your PC. I used a Netgear wireless-USB gadget to connect to PC. (See other reviews for setup instructions, which are a bit tricky.) Can play Pandora and from iTunes. Would have rated higher if it had built-in wireless or price were a bit lower.

Quality and Lots of Features for the Price.

Eefisherman, Amazon
19 January 2012
  • Summary: This unit has met all my expectations. I needed something to fit into a narrow 15" wide media center and replace my 17" wide Sony Amplifier/Receiver and 5 CD carousel player. The Marantz unit is high quality and sounds great hooked up to my 2 Boston Acoustic speakers. It only plays 1 CD at a time, but this unit is internet ready. So, I just added a WIFI adaptor ($50) to the ethernet port and connected up to my home network. Now I can stream Internet Radio, Pandora, etc..
