Marantz IS301

What Hi-Fi?
20 September 2009
  • Excerpt: The great irony with a lot of wireless AV kit is that there are often more wires than the product's wired counterpart. The Marantz IS301 falls part way in to this trap. For a start there's quite a lot of it. Your iPod sits in a removable, handheld dock that can recharge on the base station. Using A2DP profile Bluetooth, this dock talks to the 'extension module' unit, which connects via appropriate audio or video cables to your amp or TV.
  • Pros: Looks good from a distance, easy to set-up and operate, wireless audio and handheld control, decent video performance
  • Cons: Poor sound quality, wired video needs lots of wires, rather expensive

  • Summary: There's nothing wrong with the idea but it needs to sound better, and the wired video is fussy

  • Summary: An add-on for your existing hi-fi system rather than a self-contained iPod speaker dock, the IS301 delivers something pretty unique: the ability to carry your iPod around your house and still listen to music through your ‘proper’ music setup. Cut the cables How’s it all done? Via A2DP stereo Bluetooth , of course – your iPod slips into a small, lightweight handset that communicates wirelessly with a receiver station.
