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 in my house. The sound is excellent, even I am just using 55% of volume. Thankful for the Consolette - Marantz and Airplay-Apple.
Summary: I bought this for my bedroom and this player has a lot of features and an exceptional quality over Bose. If you're thinking about Bose, as a previous user, you should spend a little more and get Marantz instead. Its so much worth it and plays a very clear sound even at high levels. I was a little disappointed to see older iPhone pins instead of newer ones but I use airplay so I didnt matter to me.
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. It was immediately recognized by my itunes library and the sound is absolutely magnificent. The internet radio provides you access to countless stations. I use it as an airplay speaker and it has enough power to fill a good sized area.
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. It comes up with nonsensical messages, like "reboot in net link mode" but there is no clear way to reboot except to unplug and start from scratch. Buy something else.
