    Good Purchase

    Dennis from Texas on 6/30/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I had researched WIFI receivers for a month. I kept going back to the Marantz M-CR510. I had an old LG driving my pattio speakers wjile I was shopping. the system really sounded terrible. Once the Marantz came in, it took 15 minutes to set up and my Polk Audio MC80's came to life. super easy to set-up. I have the world of music at my finger tips. Best purchase I could have made. They say that this model is discontinued. If there is an upgarde model, I can't imagin what Marantz could have done to make it any better. Completed my patio!!

    Pros: Ease of set-up. Options on music

    Cons: Deciding on what to listen to.

    Great Web Receiver!!!

    Tony from North Carolina on 4/1/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This receiver was purchased to power a set of outdoor speakers on my back patio. One of the main reasons I purchased it was because of the Air Play capabilities from my iTunes library as well as the the Remote App from the iPhone. This receiver exceeded expectations running direct from my SiriusXM account, as well as Pandora. My wife who is not very tech savvy found the remote really easy to use and a lot of our local stations are heard using the Internet Radio despite the lack of an onboard AM/FM tuner. I highly recommend this product, set us was super easy and the sound is very good, very clear and distinct powering two Definitive outdoor 6500 series speakers. Great product, Marantz never disappoints.

    Pros: Simple to use and configure, great space saving design, WiFi

    Cons: Price

    Good Upgrade

    Hal NYC from New York on 3/21/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This unit replaced a similar one by Denon that often disconnected from my home WiFi network. So far it has worked quite well. A few disconnects occurred after setup but the unit soon re-connected automatically. Although this unit is larger than the Denon unit, still it is relatively small for its range of capabilities and power. And sound is much improved. All in all, it looks as though Marantz has taken over Denon and improved the already high quality of Denon products. May the improvements continue.

    Pros: Wide range of capabilities. Relatively small size and nicely designed cabinet. Quite good sound for size and power.

    Cons: Somewhat difficult to setup and programming also is not easy. If these were better, I would have given the unit five stars.


    David from New York on 11/30/2014

    The amplifier itself is very good. Great separation, crisp highs and punchy lows, even when playing from an iPod with a lower kHz encoding, and just fantastic with a CD or vinyl (through the USB). Where it is totally disappointing is in its wifi card. my receiver is no more than 15 feet from my wireless router. It rarely holds a signal and cuts in an out. Sometimes it will not work at all. What is most disappointing is that I remedy this by using an iPad or my iPhone through the usb. neither of those products, literally sitting on top of the Marantz, has any difficulty holding the network connection. I deliberately bought this device because of its network capability. It utterly fails to provide that service. Its just a plain old amplifier (no cd and limited device inputs). High quality sound reproduction, yes, but the 21st century capability of streaming from Pandora or an internet radio station, no way. Do not buy this if you were hoping to rely on the wifi.

    Pros: nearly audiophile sound reproduction

    Cons: The main advantage of this unit, its ability to access a wireless signal, is a frustrating failure.

    I am very pleased

    Far better than I expected from Westport, CT on 11/15/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    First, this is in my bedroom and is paired with a set of DIY speakers. I was trying to decide between returning my old Carver and buying a network streamer or getting this little unit. Refurb and streamer would be $1300 to $1800. Figured I would give this a shot for $499. I am shocked at how good to sounds. Several reviews and comments state flatly it sounds as good as a Marantz PM6004. I was highly skeptical, especially since it has a class D amp in it but now that I have listened to it, I agree. Audio reproduction is crisp and airy. The onboard DAC is far better than I would have expected and the feature set with AirPlay, Spotify and Pandora is great. My hunch is, the DAC sounds so good because the Class D amp just doesn't generate the same kind of interference you get from and A/B. At $499 this is a steal so long as you are in a small to medium room and don't have massive power needs or really low sensitivity speakers. My room is 10 x 15 and my speakers have a sensitivity of 89dB and this is plenty of power.

    Pros: Clear detailed sound Excellent onboard DAC Great feature set iOS setup feature makes it ridiculously easy to connect Subwoofer output if you need it Extremely lightweight and small yet still has an attractive finish

    Cons: Limited inputs, 3 digital and only 1 analog so fewer connection option than a typical receiver or integrated amp Not powerful enough to drive heftier floor standing speakers or low sensitivity speakers in a bigger room

    Excellent receiver for bedroom

    John from Phoenix, AZ on 10/26/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I was looking for a small mini system for my bedroom and after some research I selected the mcr510. The wireless network connectivity, optical in, and AirPlay motivated my decision. When this device arrived, although much smaller than my home theater receiver, it was a little bigger than I was anticipating (about the size of an Xbox). After getting a new shelf for under my television I had the system up and running in just a few minutes. I have the system pushing sound to Polk Audio Monitor 60 floor standing speakers. This might be overkill for my bedroom but this combination suits me without a huge need for a subwoofer (bigger enthusiasts may require one). The audio, whether source is network server, AirPlay, or the aux in sounds very crisp and I'm very pleased with that aspect of the device. The system can be controlled with either a typical remote (cumbersome for network functions) or a smartphone application (kind of clunky and unstable but it gets the job done). The same application also controls my Denon 3313ci receiver in my family room so I'm very familiar with it. The other option, which I find myself using most frequently, is direct control by iOS applications via AirPlay. AirPlay is seamless and makes this unit a dream to operate. My biggest complaint about the device is simply the price. Even though Crutchfield beat competitors by $100 it was still in the price range of full fledged receivers. Overall I'm happy with this purchase and hope it lasts!

    Pros: Wireless network connectivity, airplay, easy set up

    Cons: Price

    Marantz M-CR510

    bob from austin, tx on 5/13/2014

    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.

    Great sound at an affordable price.

    ZenFL from Florida on 1/27/2014

    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.

    Sorry for delay in responding, Don't know since I have have not needed balance control. However, I can say this unit works quite well, far better than the somewhat smaller, compact Denon unit. Hope this helps. HBE[ HAROLD B.  Jun 13, 2015 ]
    Yes. You have to access it through a menu, but it is there.[ John  Jun 09, 2015 ]
    yes. on remote you push 'DBB/tone' button (above mute button) and you can toggle dynamic bass boost, balance, bass, treble.[ ROBERT  Jun 09, 2015 ]
    I've not played with the sound settings that much but from what I can recall in the setting menu, no, there is no balance control.[ Anthony  Jun 09, 2015 ]
    yes as long as your turntable has a built in pre amp[ MARTIN  Mar 16, 2015 ]
    In a word, Yes but it isn't quite that simple. It depends on the turntable and whether you have a phone stage / preamp. The raw output from many turntables is just the signal directly from the cartridge. That signal needs amplification to reach the same level as an analog input from a CD player, DVD, etc...If your turntable has a built in signal amplifier or you have an external phone stage than you may plug it directly into the analog input and it will work perfectly. If you do not have an internal signal amplifier and historically were using the "phono" input on a receiver or integrated amp then you will need an external phono preamp to make it compatible with the M-CR510. Something like the Pre-Ject phono box will work which is currently out of stock at Crutchfield.[ SCOTT  Mar 16, 2015 ]
    No directly, any portable player or DVD, tape with "RCA" analig outputs can be connected The turnables came with a low signal level, using RCA stereo output connectors You will need in the middle a phono signal "preamplifier" to connect it to this kind of amplifiers without a dedicated phono input Look [ Abel Ayala  Mar 16, 2015 ]
    Very relevant question! I don't know, but am wanting to add a turntable to this setup and not sure I will be able to mate it to my M-CR510! Certainly Marantz product info is available to answer this![ SIDNEY A  Mar 16, 2015 ]
    I don't know, I haven't tried.[ SANFORD  Mar 15, 2015 ]
    I'm not really the person to ask about this stuff. I love the receiver. I have it in my basement bar. Have 3 pairs of speakers in the ceiling and mainly listen to pandora on it. I decided I wanted to try and hook my tv up so I could listen to hockey games on it. The first I tried was ananlog input and it plays the TV great. I would assume it would do he same for a turntable but I don't have one to test for you.[ Jason  Mar 15, 2015 ]
    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 ]
    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 ]
