Melody (M-CR412)


The Most Musical Sound

Engineered and extensively tuned by a team drawing on more than 65 years of Hi-Fi expertise, the Melody provides exceptional performance for your audio collection. Whether digital or analogue, enjoy the most musical sound from any source.

CD Playback and Bluetooth

The Melody combines refined elegance and thoughtful design into a compact CD receiver. Pair wirelessly with any Bluetooth-enabled device to stream your favourite content with the touch of a button. Built-in Bluetooth technology provides endless streaming of your favourite music services from your mobile device.

DAB+ Support

A DAB/DAB+/FM tuner provides multiple options for music listening with extraordinary Marantz sound.

Digital Audio Amplifier Technology

Featuring four channels of high-efficiency, low-distortion digital audio amplification, easily configure the Melody to drive two pairs of loudspeakers with independent volume control for each pair. Or, configure it to drive a single pair of speakers with double the output power, with the option to connect a pair of audiophile bi-amp compatible speakers. Additionally, the Melody is fully compatible with low impedance speakers, including 4-Ohm models.

Supports Wide Range of Files Types

In addition to compatibility with con-ventional PCM audio tracks from digital audio sources such as CD, the Melody supports all major audio file types including hi-res. Enjoy music exactly as the artist intended. The Melody decodes hi-res audio ALAC, FLAC, AIFF and WAV lossless files, as well as DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz tracks (the audio-phile format of SACD).

Connect to Your TV Directly

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 can automatically wake when sensing an audio signal from your television, and can be programmed to work with your TV’s remote for volume, mute and source selection.
