What Hi-Fi? Awards 2021: First Winners Announced 4th October!
The Marantz M-CR612 is a nice unit and won a EISA award in 2019/20 for best compact stereo system. Normally if you connect an Ethernet cable it turns off the wireless board. As for Bluetooth everything has it built in these days but if you don’t select that input and don‘t enter pairing mode….you should be good to go 🙂I am looking for a preferably quality all-in one system with CD (and SACD would be a definite plus). Airplay2 would also be a nice plus via ETHERNET, but it MUST be free of any radiation devices: definitely NO Bluetooth and NO wi-fi. I am making my living space Bluetooth free and wi-fi free (not just because Bluetooth is lossy and generally low quality). Marantz used to make some systems that would be perfect - e.g the Melody series - unfortunately, they now come with Bluetooth, which rules them out. Any suggestions?
