Wireless Music Systems
The Marantz M-CR610 Melody Media, winner of What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision’s System of the Year award, takes the idea of the micro hi-fi and gives it a bang up to date twist. Yes, it has a CD player, amplifier and radio tuner built-in, but it can also stream music directly from a computer, over a home network via Wi-Fi or cable, from iPhones and iPads using AirPlay, or from services such as Spotify and Last.fm. It looks slick in a choice of all-black or black and white gloss finishes, and you can even control it using free apps on your tablet or smartphone.
