Following its highly acclaimed predecessor, this lifestyle network system now supports Spotify Connect (where available; subscription required), SiriusXM and Pandora�, as well as a host of other digital media and streaming features. In addition to listening to millions of songs on the world's most popular online music services, the M-CR611 allows playback of music libraries stored on a NAS (Network Attached Storage) or a computer. And it provides access to thousands of free Internet radio stations, and supports Apple AirPlay.

For audio enthusiasts, the M-CR611 is primed for the playback of the latest 192-kHz/24-bit high-resolution digital audio formats, including ALAC, WAV, FLAC, AIFF and DSD files. The M-CR611 also offers CD and FM/AM radio playback.

Designed with ease of use in mind, this system features a simple "one-push" Wi-Fi connect button. The Wi-Fi connection has been upgraded to high-speed 11n, for a faster and more reliable connection. The addition of Bluetooth boasts connectivity options even further, and if the Bluetooth device has NFC function, you can connect easily by touching it to the N mark. iDevices can be hooked up via a front-facing USB port or an extra rear port for convenience. The M-CR611 also boasts two digital inputs for connection to a TV. Listeners can control the M-CR611 via an Android- and iOS-compatible Marantz Hi-Fi Remote app.

With 2x60 watts power output, the two-network system delivers big sound for such a compact system.
