Our take on the Marantz M-CR510

by David Brown
Marantz

The sound solution for the less-is-more movement

On one hand, you want something that sounds much better than an iPod® or Bluetooth® speaker. On the other hand, you want something less complex than a surround sound system. You'll find your sweet spot in a stereo receiver. In addition to being easy to set up and use, many now offer Internet radio and other network music options. Add your music source and two speakers, and you're ready to relax and enjoy your tunes. You might even connect your TV for improved sound with movies and shows.

Just add speakers

Looking to add music to an office, bedroom, dorm room, or den? Maybe you've already got a spare set of bookshelf speakers lying around. All you need is a way to power them and a way to play some tunes. The Marantz M-CR510 gives you both without requiring much more than a cozy resting place on your desk or shelf. 

This network-capable receiver has built-in Wi-Fi, so it's easy to start wirelessly streaming music even if your router isn't within reach. The M-CR510 can play music from networked computers, online music services like Pandora® and Spotify®, or free Internet radio stations from around the world. It also has Apple AirPlay, making it a snap to stream songs from your iPhone®, iPad®, or iTunes® on your Mac® or PC. That's a whole lot of music choices built into a single compact component that can make your speakers sing with legendary Marantz sound.

Connections for CD players, TVs, USB storage drives, and your iPod®

You don't have to listen to music wirelessly with the M-CR510. There are inputs for analog and digital sources, so you can connect a CD player or even hook up your TV to bypass its tiny speakers and actually hear movies and shows. Front- and rear-panel USB ports are perfect for mass storage devices loaded up with digital music files. Or plug your iPod or iPhone into the front port for digital playback using this receiver's high-quality digital decoding. There's also a preamp output for a powered subwoofer, in case you need to augment the bass response of those bookshelf speakers.

Control it with your smartphone

This little receiver does a lot, and it's easy to control with the Marantz Remote app for Apple® and Android™ devices. Download this free app to your smartphone, so you can get your music playing the second you walk in the room. The app lets you choose from hundreds of free Internet radio streams, play tunes from your music server, or even control your iPod when it's plugged into the receiver.

    Marantz M-CR510

    Written By bob, austin, tx on Tuesday, May 13, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    i was hesitant to spend $600 for relatively low wattage and fewer connection options on rear panel - but i'm so glad i did! the amp is marantz quality, and can even handle lower impedance speakers. the 3-line OLED display makes streaming music from home server, airplay or DLNA phone, internet radio and subscription services very easy, no learning curve. the modern design and relatively small/light box combine to make this the next-gen 2.1 receiver i've been seeking for years now. marantz can also push firmware updates. no built-in bluetooth but i much prefer DLNA anyhow. this is the minimalist next-gen receiver that has every single feature i wanted for a 2.0 or 2.1 setup, including digital audio connection to TV. love it!!
    Pros:
    -full wireless/streaming capabilities -3-line OLED display with intuitive menus -marantz-quality amp -modern design, small footprint
    Cons:
    none.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I'm far from an audio guy. I never really owned a system but I love music so I decided I was going to treat myself. My budget was 1500.00 and I contacted Crutchfield to see what they suggested. My advisor Chance was awesome. He gave me a detailed response and a couple suggestions.

    Based on his suggestions, I chose the Marantz M-CR510 because of the internet connectivity. For speakers I chose Polk RTiA5.

    It's a very easy set up. I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to wiring these things, but it didn't take me long. The receiver itself is easy to set up. Their App sucks, but I use AirPlay on my MacBook, iPad and iPhone. Spotify plays like a dream that way.

    Now the most important, the sound. All I can say is Amazing! I'm sure some enthusiasts could nit-pic it but as far as I'm concerned it's outstanding. Sounds great low, sounds great loud. Rock, chill, metal, acoustic guitar, whatever the music, it sounds incredible.

    If you're on the fence about a system, do yourself a favor and contact Crutchfield. The team knows their stuff. Great recommendations, very fast service and fair pricing.
    Pros:
    Great sound, easy set up, AirPlay, wifi
    Cons:
    Honestly, none.

    How does SiriusXM work with this unit? Does the CR510 or 610 have a built in tuner that just needs to be connected to a serius antenna? [ Steve  Mar 21, 2014 ]

    • It's internet stream - you need to have an internet-based account with Sirius, similar to Pandora. No special antenna needed. [ ROBERT A   Jun 09, 2014 ]
    • There isn't a SiriusXM antenna. It uses WiFi instead. You enter your username and password as if you were listening on the internet. [ FELIX   Mar 22, 2014 ]
    How exactly does the internet radio work? Does the manufacturer maintain a server that allows you to find stations by genre, by location, etc., or do you have to look up the URL and enter it manually? Does the device connect to the streams directly, so that the user isn't dependent on that server being up in order to listen to any stream? I have been using Squeezebox for internet radio, and when their server goes down I am dead in the water - I can't listen to anything because all of the streams are routed through the Squeezebox server. I am looking for something that doesn't have that drawback, but that does provide a directory of available streams. [ John  Dec 14, 2013 ]

    • Unfortunately the internet radio is above my pay grade. I am an old guy and this technology is beyond my knowledge. [ Charles   Dec 21, 2013 ]
    • The online vTuner service which offers easy browsing of internet radio stations and podcasts. (over 12,000 available). vTuner enables access to web-based radio stations and podcasts via an extremely reliable online database with a wide variety of content. Internet Radio stations in MP3 (32-320kbps, WMA (48-192kbps), and AAC (16-320 kbps) formats are supported. You can browse content by Genre, Location, Recommended, Favorites, or Keyword search. The unit will automatically save up to 20 of the most recently played stations. [ Jeff Staff  Dec 16, 2013 ]
