Excellent receiver

Geoff, Amazon
1 April 2014
  • Summary: This is a great product. Took all of 5 minutes to unbox and setup. Simple packaging, easy to set up wifi. Airplay works great. Receiver is about the size of an Xbox -- for some reason the photo implies a much smaller product. Finish is very nice. Good for a grande place.

Marantz M-CR510

bob, Crutchfield
27 January 2014
  • Summary: i was hesitant to spend $600 for relatively low wattage and fewer connection options on rear panel - but i'm so glad i did! the amp is marantz quality, and can even handle lower impedance speakers. the 3-line OLED display makes streaming music from home server, airplay or DLNA phone, internet radio and subscription services very easy, no learning curve.
  • Pros: -full wireless/streaming capabilities -3-line OLED display with intuitive menus -marantz-quality amp -modern design, small footprint
  • Cons: none.

Great sound at an affordable price.

ZenFL, Crutchfield
27 January 2014
  • Summary: I'm far from an audio guy. I never really owned a system but I love music so I decided I was going to treat myself. My budget was 1500.00 and I contacted Crutchfield to see what they suggested. My advisor Chance was awesome. He gave me a detailed response and a couple suggestions. Based on his suggestions, I chose the Marantz M-CR510 because of the internet connectivity. For speakers I chose Polk RTiA5. It's a very easy set up.
  • Pros: Great sound, easy set up, AirPlay, wifi
  • Cons: Honestly, none.

Excellent sound, laborious and frustrating setup

Jack M. Nilles, Amazon
18 November 2013
  • Summary: It actually gets a 5 for sound quality and a 1 (or less) for ease of setup if you have a non-"standard" LAN arrangement as I do. The manual is of the sort that's written for those who already know everything about the system but is pretty opaque for others. [I also have a Marantz SR6007 that was much easier to set up.

Great!! But go for next model up.

  • Summary: First of all, this is a fantastic and very capable media / internet radio device. If you still have the "entertainment center" then this is a fantastic add on, or in my case, a standalone product that bridges a few devices. My hook up was with the light/link (name escapes me know) to the television and as a stand alone internet music player. I also can stream music from my NAS, but I seem to just turn it on and either listen to the radio or turn to my Pandora stations.

Receiver with AirPlay and internet radio, pricey for a 2.1 receiver.

AmazonDiva "Keep Calm and Carry On.", Amazon
3 November 2013
  • Summary: Marantz makes higher end receivers compared to value brands like Onkyo. This one has AirPlay that can be used with iOS devices that works nicely. It also streams music through the internet from Pandora/Spotify or a multitude of Radio channels. So it can be a stand alone receiver. However, at this price point with only 2 speaker connections it is a little too expensive in my opinion.

Easy to use!

Book lover, Amazon
27 October 2013
  • Summary: I am not tech savvy by any means so when I receive electronics I am usually at a loss. With this Receiver though I was very pleasantly at how easy it was to set up! The directions were very straight forward and I had everything hooked up with no issues, which never happens. The best thing about this is that I can use my phone to work it. I love this feature! I always have my phone beside me so this was a wonderful and handy feature.

Great piece of audio equipment, with just one minor improvement to be made!

M.D. Edwards "Avid Aesthete", Amazon
19 October 2013
  • Summary: As far as (essentially) stand-alone audio systems go, Marantz has created a great piece of equipment here to serve as a modern update to the stereo systems of days gone by. With just a pair of even basic, low-end speakers, the audiophile can stream his or her music collection from a variety of sources quickly and very easily, with a clean, attractive, sharp-looking interface.
