Melody X – True HiFi performance meets elegant design meets unlimited music sources

Apr 09, 2019

We’re excited to introduce the new Marantz Melody X, a true hi-fi system in an elegant design, featuring CD playback, FM/DAB+ radio, modern music streaming, voice control and multi-room via built-in HEOS technology.

Engineered and extensively tuned by our team drawing on more than 65 years of hi-fi expertise, the Melody X provides exceptional performance for your audio collection. It has been designed with the modern audiophile in mind and crafted with superior materials that elevate the audio quality to levels that transcend this network CD receiver’s small footprint.

Featuring four channels of high-efficiency, low-distortion digital audio amplification, you can easily configure the Melody X to drive two pairs of loudspeakers with independent volume control for each pair. Alternatively configure it to drive a single pair of speakers in audiophile bi-amping mode or in unique PBTL Mode with double the output power. Additionally, the Melody X is fully compatible with almost every even demanding speakers, including 4-ohm models.

Fully optimised to reproduce the best audio performance possible, the compact signal paths reduce distortion and improve sound.

Built-in HEOS technology lets you enjoy your favourite digital music controlled via an intuitive app – stream music from Spotify, TuneIn Internet Radio, Sound Cloud, Tidal, Napster, Deezer or your local music files. With additional HEOS components such as the HEOS speaker range or other HEOS-capable receivers, easily play all of your music in one room or many. You can also stream audio from any iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple TV, perfectly synced to your speakers from AirPlay 2 sources.

Enjoy effortless voice control and total flexibility from the leading voice assistants. Using spoken commands with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant or Apple Siri, you can ask to play your favourite music, turn the volume up, skip to the next track, switch inputs and more. Switch between voice assistants, or pick a favourite to use – you’re in control.

Connect your digital TV or cable/satellite set-top box and a Blu-ray or DVD player to either of the two digital audio inputs to enjoy full-dynamic-range digital audio playback of your favourite movies and TV shows. The Melody X can automatically wake when sensing an audio signal from the television, and can be programmed to work with your TV’s remote for volume, mute and source selection.

The unit’s front panel features a clear, legible three-line Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) display, with numerical and text display from a wide-angle view for easy operation and control.

The Melody X is the perfect addition to any living space, thanks to its compact chassis and refined, timeless styling. Deluxe vertical lighting accents on the front panel – a modern-day Marantz trademark – give that extra touch of quality.

Melody X is available from April 15th in elegant black or classic silver-gold finishes at authorised Marantz retailers.
