I'm looking for a receiver for my b&w 685. And now i did saw the marantz melody stream.
do any 1 know if its a good product, and in combo with the 685
Your speakers appear to present a fairly easy load for an amp (88dB and 8 Ohms) so I don't foresee any problems unless you need unusually high volumes. (Although that holds true for any amp of similar power and not just the Melody Media.)
I would take Marantz' quoted output of 60wpc with a tiny pinch of salt. 45 - 50wpc would be more realistic, but with your - fairly - high efficiency speakers you should be fine.
Marantz M-CR603 • Rega R3 loudspeakers • AirPlay • Apple iPad Mini • Apple iPhone 5 • Apple iMac • Apple AirPort Extreme 802.11N • Humax HDR-Fox T2 • Panasonic TX-L32D25B • Sony BDP-S390
