The new Marantz Melody M-CR412, Classic hi-fi performance in a modern design

Jun 04, 2019

Introducing the new Marantz Melody M-CR412, a classic hi-fi system in a modern design, featuring CD playback, FM/DAB+ radio, built-in Bluetooth, and the renowned Marantz sound quality.

Engineered and extensively tuned by our team drawing on more than 65 years of hi-fi expertise, the Marantz Melody provides exceptional performance for your favourite CDs and radio stations. Built on the recently introduced Melody X Network CD Receiver (M-CR612), the new Melody Hi-Fi CD Receiver (M-CR412) is crafted with the same superior materials that elevate the audio quality to levels that transcend the small footprint.

Music lovers should not be misguided by the size of just 11cm height. The maximum power output is rated at 2x 60 Watts which will fill even big living rooms with the beloved Marantz sound. Fully optimised to reproduce the best audio performance possible, the Melody contains high quality parts and developments taken from the company’s premium hi-fi components. Featuring four channels of high-efficiency, low-distortion digital audio amplification, you can connect two pairs of loudspeakers and drive them with independent volume control for each pair. It even offers a bi-amping mode, known among audiophiles for even better sound quality from a single pair of supporting speakers. Additionally, the Melody is fully compatible with almost all speakers, including 4-ohm models. The quality audio approach is underlined by a USB-A input supporting even high resolution music playback including FLAC, ALAC or DSD files.

Users can connect their 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 can automatically wake when sensing an audio signal from the television, and can be programmed to work with a TV’s remote for volume, mute and source selection, which makes swapping remotes while browsing through the TV stations obsolete. To round up, smartphone users can easily stream their music to the Melody via Bluetooth, and enjoy their beloved music in a whole new quality.

The Melody 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. It is available from June 15th in elegant black or classic silver-gold at authorised Marantz retailers.
