Marantz M-CR502 review


The Marantz M-CR502 is very stylish indeed and its lean, driving attack makes it worthy of an audition, especially now that it costs £100 less

Great styling ; impressive spec ; exceptional precision and timing ; clean and precise sound

Needs careful matching of speakers to avoid overly clinical sound

The Marantz is now better value, and at this price its combination of precision and detail means it deserves five stars

Marantz M-CR502 review


Marantz has knocked a tonne off the asking price for this stylish, specced-up micro hi-fi. But will the drop in price seal the deal?

Clean, punchy and precise, the cheaper price tag transforms the Marantz M-CR502 into a killer micro system

Marantz MCR502


Clean, precise, rhythmical whether using CD, DAB or in combination with Mac and DAC. Paired with Monitor Audio BX2 speakers.

Perhaps a little more work could gone into design of remote.
