So many options — great sound — nice display, interface

Summary: I've had mine for a couple of years and for me it's been a (almost) perfect 2.1 music system hub. We listen to music 24/7 and the Marantz sounds great with everything — Internet Radio (BBC6, KEXP, KCRW), Streaming Audio (Pandora One), Network Audio from an NAS drive, and Analog input from a Mac with...
Summary: Feature wise, this receiver is great. Unfortunately it doesn't live up to it's reputation as a reliable brand. I solved the intermittent wireless connectivity issue by hardwiring it to the modem. However it still frequently freezes when playing from the music server.

Summary: I have this set up in my office. Makes my desktop computer speakers sound awesome. Waiting for my Polk speakers to arrive, but almost wondered why even bother if my simple setup already sounds so good.
Summary: Loved the airplay feature. Internet radio, music server, and even the CD player, all my music can find a way as input to this device, I also used a multi-room audio switch to deliver music to multiple rooms. Great value and cool looking device.
Summary: The sound you get is well above its price point. Even low quality streams soud good. When you do 320kps or FLAC is heaven. Im using B&W CM1 speakers, which are not the most efficient and still plenty of power for my office. Class D amplifier does not even get warm.
Summary: I'm writing this after playing with the M-CR610 for about a month. First, the gripe: About once per week, the unit will flip out, and ignore commands from the remote. RELAX! It's not a big deal, as the usual fix has been to close the iPhone's Remote app, and then open it again.
Summary: This is very easy to set up. Marantz is a great brand and it's a solid system. I just plugged some speakers in,set it up to my network, and it worked. So the question I'd ask, is what makes this better than just a dedicated PC music system?
