Summary: Doesn't have Bluetooth! I returned the first one and the second one has the same issue; the preset stations when called upon don't come in right away or at all. Sometimes it takes 15 second or 30 seconds or just never tunes in at all. Bought power antenna, but to no avail.
Summary: Absolutely love this product!!!! I researched hard for a system that had a/b speakers, streamed my music from my computer, played internet radio and also an app to control the system. On top of that, my wife is a design freak. She wanted something that looked clean in design.
Summary: I haven't shut it off since I hooked it up! The sound is clean. It's smooth from very low volume all the way to blast the room. I hooked it up to my internet but haven't figured out how to get my radio stations yet. We get terrible reception so I haven't even tried the tuner.
Pros: Enough power to drive my 2 Klipsch reference 52 speakers and love them in bi-amp mode.
Summary: Our CD player stopped working, and the rest of our components were about 30 years old. I talked to the representative here, Chance, and he pointed me toward the Marantz M-CR610. In addition to CD / Tuner / Amplifier, which I wanted, this has internet connectivity.
Pros: Can play CDs, Internet radio, streaming audio from Pandora, Spotify, etc. Can drive the unit from iPad or iTunes on a laptop. Sound production is excellent, driving full-range IMF Studio speakers without difficulty.
Cons: It took me a little while to figure how to configure the remote control App. Some better documentation for that is recommended. (The documentation for the unit and the remote control is very comprehensive.)
Summary: Using this Marantz to power two polk A8s at the moment will be four soon but this little sucker is powerful it produces great sound to my outdoor speakers and the app works flawlessly on my I phone
Pros: Sleek design! Size! It doesn't take up a whole lot of space
Summary: 1st time I bought from Crutchfield and I'm very happy with quick service and delivery Marantz M-CR610 fits perfectly with my needs as network receiver. It is easy to use at least for me,good reception, works great in my living room as background music point.
Pros: Easy to use wirelessly, easy to setup, AirPlay technology and it is CD player as well. Overall I'm very pleased with this item
Cons: A bit pricey and I couldn't find it in silver color.
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 was looking for a shelf stereo system just for music and college ball games. I hadn't bought a stereo for 40 years as everything I got was for AV. All of the bookshelf systems I researched seemed to fall short in the reviews or capabilities.
Pros: Very good sound and input selections.
Cons: The price is a little steep, but as the saying goes "you get what you pay for".
