Marantz Melody X M-CR612, with 606 S2 Speakers Package, White Overview

This Marantz Melody X M-CR612 with 606 S2 Speakers (in White) Package offers the range of smart connectivity and design features you need to establish a comprehensive home Hi-Fi system. While the Melody X provides the wide-ranging connectivity your system needs, the 606 S2 speakers bring sonic transparency and minimal aesthetic.

The Marantz Melody X M-CR612 is an all-in-one Amplifier and CD Player with built-in network streaming; this includes support for popular services such as Spotify, Tidal and Apple Music. You can choose to wirelessly stream music to this device via Bluetooth, AirPlay 2 or Marantz's smart app—HEOS. The latter allows the M-CR612 to be integrated into a multi-room system throughout your home (when used with other HEOS-compatible products), thus, providing that smart home feel. Marantz has also included a range of wired connectivity options such as a stereo phono/RCA connection, digital optical input for TV, as well as DAB/FM Radio Antenna. Connect two pairs of speakers with dedicated A and B speaker output channels, all from the Melody X M-CR612.

The Bowers and Wilkins 606 S2 Anniversary Edition Bookshelf Speakers are compact and conveniently sized for display on a stereo rack, media cabinet, or speaker stands (not included). Their rear-ported design not only boosts bass output but reduces air turbulence for a smoother sound. This, combined with both a high-frequency and a midrange driver, helps achieve a response range of 52Hz - 28kHz ± 3dB.

Marantz Elegance

Coming from Marantz, it is no surprise that the M-CR612 looks the way it does. Nothing says luxe quality quite like that glossy finish and clear digital display. The M-CR612 is also half-size making it much easier to situate in your home than larger amplifiers. Vertical lighting across the front panel accents the control buttons and enhances the product’s shiny appearance. Choose from a black or silver-gold finish to compliment your unique interior. Either way, Marantz specially selected all materials to promote the best sound delivery.

Alternatively, set your M-CR612 to channel all its power through one pair of speakers for double the drive. Bi-amp a set of compatible speakers for extra clarity between your high- and low-end frequencies.

This will improve the sound quality of your source with greater dynamic range and detail. Once connected to your TV, the M-CR612 will automatically sense audio signal and wake from its hibernation. From here, programme the M-CR612 to work with your existing TV remote for volume adjustment and source selection.

Bowers and Wilkins 606 S2 Anniversary Speakers

Bowers & Wilkins Consistency

Accumulating more than half a century of industry knowledge since their founding in the late 1960s with 25 years of persistent development since the release of the 600 Series, Bowers & Wilkins has celebrated the tremendous milestone by unveiling the seventh generation of the classic model. Implementing technologies originally reserved for the reference 800 Series Diamond range—the speakers installed at the world-famous Abbey Road Studios in London—experience why Bowers & Wilkins are the favourite of so many.

All-round Performance

Although at first glance the design may seem minimalistic, the finely-tuned engineering of the Bowers & Wilkins 606 S2 cannot be understated. Perhaps most importantly to performance, the crossover circuitry has been completely upgraded, with superior mid and high-frequency capacitors—originally used in the 700 Series Signature range speakers. This critical addition renders these bookshelf speakers with optimised transparency, able to exhibit a smoother harmonic performance, whilst still being available at a more accessible level.

Stand-mount Cabinet

If you need a centrepiece for your HiFi or compact home cinema system, Bowers & Wilkins are ready to deliver. Whilst only 19cm wide, comparatively slim for the larger bookshelf speaker of a range, the 606 S2 is deep. This makes for a bigger, harder-hitting sound than the 607 S2 and with room to breathe, a great choice if you’re looking for a dynamic sound system. The trim lines and uniform angles of the cabinet also help the speaker to blend in with a wide range of environments, with three neutral finishes: Black, Oak and White.

Decouple Double Domed Tweeter

A through-line of the 600 Series is its Decoupled Double Dome tweeter. Through analysis of speaker performance and stress, B&W has implemented key reinforcements at weak points in the dome using lightweight materials such as aluminium. The tweeter is decoupled from the cabinet by a gel-like band, fundamentally separating it from cabinet reverberations. The result is a breakup frequency pushed as high as 38kHz, as well as greater accuracy.

Continuum™ Cone FST™ Driver

An eye-catching feature of the 606 S2 Anniversary Edition is its 6.5” midrange driver, but it's not just looks that make this such an appealing piece of technology. Originally developed for their reference level 800 Series speakers, Bowers & Wilkins use exclusive Continuum™ drivers to deliver a sense of consistent, coherent performance. FST™ (Fixed Suspension Transducers) are also reactive, with higher resistance to external vibrations.

Flowport™ Bass-Reflex

The Bowers & Wilkins Flowport™ is another key feature of the 600 Series, with a pattern that’s far more than just a propensity for polka dots. With similar principles to golf ball design, the dimples help to reduce drag as air is forced from the cabinet. This bolsters bass response as well as diminishes the effect of turbulence on the 606. You can also use the included double cylindrical port bung to tighten bass to your liking.

Key Features

  • Premium Continuum™ cone driver, also used in the flagship 800 Series Diamond, reproduces sound precisely
  • The FST™ is separated from the main cabinet by isolating surround, reducing reverberation and increasing responsiveness
  • 52-28,000 Hz frequency response for an especially impressive high-frequency reproduction
  • Decoupled Double Domed Tweeter improves accuracy and lifts the breakup ceiling out of human hearing range
  • Flowport™ bass reflex design reduces air resistance during use
  • Completely upgraded crossover circuitry inspired by the 700 Series Signature speakers is a huge step up in sound quality
  • Ideal-sized speakers for most standard living rooms
