Marantz Melody Stream Hi-Fi Choice

Feb 11, 2014
The Marantz Melody Stream MC-R510 receives 4/5 from Hi-Fi Choice.

The Marantz Melody Media received 4.5 stars in both Sound Quality and Value for money from Hi-Fi Choice coming out with an overall score of 4/5.

"Style-wise, the Melody Stream cuts a terrific dash….its high-gloss, all-black or black and white design with curved edges give it an elegant and contemporary feel."

Sound quality

Everything sparkles with the kind of clarity that's surprising from a unit at the price and the Melody Stream seems happy to hit high volumes without hitting the buffers of distortion, maintaining a pleasing tonal balance. The bass in Jean Michel Jarre's 'Oxygene Part IV' (24/48 ALAC) can really trip up  an inferior system, but here it remains tight and controlled while the treble of the synth glides along……The Melody Stream does a more than reasonable job too with lower-res sources."

Conclusion

"Marantz deserves praise for producing the versatile Melody Stream. It's a beautiful-looking unit with cutting-edge digital features, and could hardly be easier to use despite the relative complexity of its functionality"

 "Looks fab, is a blast to own and use and delivers super hi-res audio"
