Marantz M-CR511 – First impressions
2 new models in Marantz’s Melody series has arrived; M-CR511, which we already got on the test bench, and the new model M-CR611 with CDplayer. Was lucky to get my hands on one of the early M-CR511.
Some changes compared to the MCR510 is; the logo is now inside and not letter plastered on the outside, and it makes the unit look more clean. The acryllic top has been made more scratch proof. Besides that, dimensions is completely the same. On the backpanel there is only one small little chance, and that is the addition for the IOS button in the “Wi-Fi connect” section. Besides that, it is rated to 5W less than the previous model.
New features includes Spotify Connect and Bluetooth!
