The MCR612 Melody X contains a host of wireless connections, negating the need connecting cables every time you want to listen. Bluetooth support, Apple Airplay 2, Spotify Connect, Amazon Music and TIDAL all allow you to stream your music of choice seamlessly from your smartphone or tablet to the MCR612, and begin enjoying music quicker and easier. With built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet connection, the Marantz MCR612 provides a stable network connection to your device, even in Wi-Fi crowded homes.

Using a high grade DAC, the MCR612 is capable of handling up to 24-bit/192 kHz digital audio files, support various file types such as MP3, WAV, FLAC and ALAC, as well as DSD 2.8/5.6MHz playback. Two optical inputs allow you to connect the MCR612 to your TV, giving you sound quality better than a soundbar, so you can enjoy all your favourite movies and shows with the sound quality they deserve.

The Marantz MCR612 Melody X is compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple’s Siri voice assistants, enabling you to have hands free control of the network receiver and play, pause and switch tracks all with your voice. The MCR612 is also controllable through your existing TV remote, allowing you to use one remote for both the TV and network receiver.

Definitive Technology Demand 7 Bookshelf Speakers

Featuring a 1 inch aluminium dome tweeter with Definitive Technology’s new 20/20 Wave Alignment Lens, the Demand 7 speakers provide a smooth high frequency response and better sound dispersion for a satisfying listening experience. The tweeter has been offset by 5° for a more precise centre stereo image by reducing symmetric diffraction from the front baffle corners. The annealed aluminium tweeters have been precision engineered to bring out every nuance and detail in the higher frequencies, creating and clear and crisp top end to the speakers.

Further improving the sound dispersion throughout the room, the Patented Linear Response Waveguide extends on and off axis frequency response, and creates a more natural mid-range timbre and precise imaging, allowing you to hear an accurate soundstage equally, wherever you are in the room.

The midrange woofer contains Balanced Double Surround System patented technology to give the speaker greater excursion and output, resulting in superior midrange detail and punchy, dynamic bass when compared to other midrange drivers of a similar size. For impressive low end extension, each speaker contains a bass port to smoothly transition air flow from the speaker into your room to create a deep, extended bass impact without distortion.
