Summary: I always choose micro hifi unit living in a small apt in NYC, and this was a very happy upgrade. In addition to the trustworthy brand name, the biggest selling point was having so many input choices that I needed. I hooked up my TV using optical cable, Ipod usiung sync cable, and playing spotify or such using my bluethooth adaptor.
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..
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.
Summary: I purchased this stereo and the sound is GREAT !!!!!!!!!! I placed the orders because I saw in the web site [...] ,that the mini system won the best mini system in 2011 . Just use great speakers too ... I have my old B&W DM-303 and the sound is great!
Summary: For the limited time price on Amazon, $499, this is an amazing All-In-One Hi-Fi system. Great to use, listen to and live with, this Marantz micro is a high-tech marvel. Lovely looks and great usability; will play music from almost anywhere; cracking detail and rhythmic precision. Spectacular sound. Drives my 85db 6ohm audiophile speakers effortlessly at the volumes I listen.
Summary: I've had this system for six months. I loved it when I was using it only for CDs. I recently used the network function and love it even more. The sound is phenomenal for such a small unit. I found it to be quieter in operation than the Arcam Solo Mini. The amplifier is Class D so it doesn't run hot like the Arcam. I use it in the bedroom and have the alarm set so I'm awakened to a CD every morning. (The Arcam has a buzzer, no CD, for timer function.
Summary: if you seek a simple, yet sophisticated approach to a secondary audio-room, look no further. it won't play loud and deep, but it will handle most secondary listening needs perfectly. for the price, you can't go wrong.
Summary: Am only currently using the CD and USB connection with IPad, but the sound quality of this unit ( paired with a second hand pair of Epos speakers) is, for the price, astounding. I cannot recommend this product highly enough.
Summary: I purchased an MCR 603 about 2 1/2 years ago with Wharfedale 10.1s to replace a separates / floorstander setup that wouldn't fit in my new flat. Since then it has been an absolutely faultless and pleasing lounge companion. The quality of it is absolutely top notch with great DAB and FM tuners, free airplay upgrade and more than adequate 40wpc (especially with a monitor audio ref 100 looking after the bottom end).
