Melody X (M-CR612)


The Most Musical Sound

Engineered and extensively tuned by a team drawing on more than 65 years of Hi-Fi expertise, the Melody X provides exceptional performance for your audio collection. Whether digital or analogue, enjoy the most musical sound from any source.

Powerful and versatile

Featuring four channels of high-efficiency digital audio amplification, easily configure the Melody X to drive two pairs of loudspeakers with independent volume control for each pair. Or, configure it to drive even tower speakers with double the output power.

Elegant Design and Audiophile Construction

The Melody X combines refined elegance and thoughtful design into a compact network CD receiver. Styled in a high-gloss black or a classic silver-gold finish, the Melody X offers a beautiful look to complement its superb performance.

Unlimited Music Sources

It does not stop with CD and FM/DAB+ radio playback. Thanks to built-in HEOS technology, you can enjoy your favourite digital music through a most comfortable App operation. Enjoy music from Spotify, TuneIn Internet Radio, Sound Cloud, Tidal, Napster, Deezer or your local music file libraries.

Better audio quality than a Soundbar

Connect your digital TV or cable/satellite set-top-box and a Blu-ray or DVD player to either of the two digital audio inputs and the Melody X automatically turns on for you to enjoy full dynamic range sound of your favourite movies and TV shows.

Supports Major Voice Control Agents

Enjoy effortless voice control and total flexibility from the leading voice agents. Speak commands with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant or Apple Siri. Ask to play your favourite music, turn the volume up, skip to the next track, switch inputs and more. Switch between voice agents, or pick a favourite to use — you’re in control. Functionality varies by voice agent.
