I'm sure in time it'll be available as a non speaker unit less expensive. Or maybe the 611 will drop to 99 quidIt is.
Stereo preouts and a sub out.
Which is about what I’d use it for.
The 55W power consumption make a bit of a joke of its quoted outputs; and it’ll have no current reserve to speak of.
The original £629 is a bit steep for a preamp though.
Retail is always high at launch before settling down. IIRC the MCR611 was in the region of £500 when launched. In that context it doesn't seem bad at all given the addition of voice control & HEOS multi-room.Why so much more than the 611??
£380 Vs £630 seems very steep!
Should have gone to Specsavers.I can't see anything to suggest it can do multi zone.
HEOS compatible speakers and receivers can be added so that each room can be bought on board to create a multi-room setup which is controlled via the HEOS app for iOS and Android. A single song can be played throughout or each room’s music can be individually tailored for the occupants.
