Amazing Product

Calpeete, Crutchfield
12 January 2014
  • Summary: I was torn between the NAD D 7050 and this one. The lack of Bluetooth support had me on the fence but I'm the only one in the family with an AptX Bluetooth device so it didn't make much sense for me. Don't let the RMS output fool you, I have this hooked up to a pair of Definitive BP 7006's and it blows my walls down! The sound this amp puts out is quite crisp and AirPlay / Spotify stream flawlessly.
  • Pros: * Easy to setup * Quality sound & workmanship * Handy iPAD / Android app
  • Cons: * None that come to mind

Marantz has it all!

Matthew Hall, Amazon
30 December 2013
  • 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. It's likely a network "bug", similar to any device that functions on a wireless network with lots of other traffic. Now, for the positive: The unit is simply amazing!

  • Summary: One of my best buys. It does everything. A minor glitch related to signing in especially if you use symbols. However, the unit delivers, excellent sound when coupled with definitive technology speakers with a subwoofer. Beautiful, simple but elegant unit.
  • Pros: Does everything well. High end sound
  • Cons: signing in with symbols a bear e.g. where is "@"

Really nice setup

Danno, Crutchfield
14 December 2013
  • Summary: I did quite a lot of research to try to find a home stereo receiver. I don't really watch TV and 5.1, 7.1 and whatever else is out there does nothing for me. I want to listen to a great stereo sound like I did when I was in high school in the '80's. I was leaning towards an integrated receiver but as I looked into more products and what would really suit my needs I came across these Marantz receivers that have built in WiFi.
  • Pros: Solid, well-built feel. Small size. Easy to setup various features via Wi-Fi. CD player is a great convenience and sounds really good. Plenty of nice, clean RMS power for my Bose speakers. Very secure, solid speaker input terminals and ability to bi-amp, if you want. Sleek, good-looking unit.
  • Cons: I haven't found any yet.

Marantz M-CR610 Stereo Receiver

SteveM, Crutchfield
10 December 2013
  • Summary: In many ways this is the perfect receiver for use in a den or bedroom. It's compact, combining a receiver and CD player, and thus occupies a very small footprint. It's easy to set up. It plays CDs, am/fm, and with Wi-Fi, Apple AirPlay. internet radio, Pandora, etc. I hooked it up to a couple of Klipsch KG4 speakers that I bought in the late 1980s and the sound is great. It's perfect for my audio needs. So why only three stars?
  • Pros: ease of setup, CD/receiver combination, wireless internet
  • Cons: inability to update software

Nice features BUT potentially harmful

Robert Kuzma, Amazon
4 December 2013
  • Summary: Great feature set and good sound quality for the price. My biggest complaint is the extreme acrid electronic solvent odor! I have used this receiver for more than three weeks, and the odor is still apparent. During the first few days, the odor was intolerable. I kept the windows opened for the first couple weeks. I've noticed this same smell in many other Chinese made electronic products over the past few years. The EPA should regulate this out-gassing of these products.

Great system....

Confucious, Amazon
21 November 2013
  • Summary: A great system with lots of features. The receiver is surprisingly small compared to past receivers I have owned. I have this in my living room and it takes little space with its small foot print. One of my favorite features is the ability to play a different set of speakers in another room. I have this in my living room paired up with some Audioengine P4's. The receiver powers those speakers up really well by the way.

Really Nice

Bill, Crutchfield

  • Summary: The Marantz CR-610 is a very nice unit and compact which is what I needed for the small space I have. Setting up the unit initially and finding my network was flawless. I was able to download and install the android and iphone app for controlling the unit. The iphone app is a bit buggy and sometimes crashes. Overall the apps do a nice job allowing me to stream music from a variety of sources.
  • Pros: Compact Excellent sound Super easy setup
  • Cons: Android and Iphone Apps are a bit limited in functionality.

As Promised

Stocky, Crutchfield
18 November 2013
  • Summary: I've been looking for a long time for compact unit like this for months. This has all the features I was looking for unlike other brands that offered only some. The set up was very easy and smooth. Once you learn the intuiative menus the operation is a breeze as well. The sound output is sufficient to make almost any speakers sound good. It's on the expensive side but worth every penny.
  • Pros: Easy set-up and operation, excellent sound, fully featured in a compact unit
  • Cons: None
