Beautiful device and Heavenly sound but horrible set up and app - Worth it if you can find one

Summary: The sound is heavenly. It's like if angels were singing in your ears!! Take the front cover off and the sound gets even better. Of course do not expect this to go super low in bass, but for normal range music, the bass is good enough.. If I could rate it based on sound, i'd say its a 5 star product.
Summary: gorgeous but flawed. use Ethernet, wifi very unreliable. lots of restarts required. not as much bass as I expected but wonderful warm sound. I paid 350 and it was worth it but I do wish it were more reliable, I spend too much time getting it to work. I'd go Bose next time.

Summary: The sound is really great but the software is incredibly frustrating - from the lousy iPhone app to the firmware download process, nothing seems to work. Also the AirPlay connection drops too often but I don't know if this is a speaker issue or an AirPlay issue.
Marantz nailed it. Buy a lightening adapter and you are set.

Summary: I am an audiophile...owning turntables, tube preamps, magico speakers, high end cables etc. I trust my ears. This Marantz is amazing. It sounds as good as it looks. Can fill a room with gorgeous sound. Transparent, clear, organic, with tight and present bass.
Summary: powerful, good image, musical and detailled. bass frequency is a ok but could be deeper. the alarm is not independent from iphone. a bit complicated. the yamaha isx 700 is more practical and easier but the sound is not as good as the marantz consolette.
Great sound !!! Super convenience !!! Cool design !!!

Summary: I just got this awesome unit two days ago. I connected it to my router via LAN cable, since Wired connection should be better Wireless. I am using this unit through Airplay from my iPhone 5 and my Macbook, and I have the Consolette App installed on my iPhone, so I can control it when I am everywhere...
Very elegant looking and once set up it will be worth it.

Summary: Like others that have reviewed this product, I found that it wasn't that intuitive to get set up. However, you can do this if you are persistent and allow yourself a little time. Once it was set up, it was completely worth it.
Summary: Every time the modem gets unplugged or power interruption, it takes forever to figure out how to re-hook to wifi. The instruction manual has no relation to reality. It's trial and error balancing an iPad in the dock.
Summary: It seems I need to buy an I phone to use this beauty. I'm sorely disappointed because when this monster works it'll blow girls clothes off! Seems like maybe Amazon will maybe work with me a while and see what we can do together to make this a worth while purchase...Eh?
