Rather an average app, but it works reliably with my M-CR610. Usability is a bit rubbish as it's essentially a copy of the on-device UI into the app, but it speeds up some functions (e.g. logging into Spotify). Would be nice to skip the unintuitive device selection on every startup.
This AVR app does not connect to my new Marantz NR1606 receiver. I would've thought Marantz would have a very good receiver app as I was always under the impression they were one of the premium brands. Apparently not Marantz... It would be nice if Marantz would Ante-Up and create a good AVR app for all their customers that spend Top Dollar on their product... Anyway, I am extremely disappointed at this point... What can you do Marantz...?!
Average Apps From day one to current always have remote app connections issue finding the device. I even took the precaution of adding a performance tri-band gaming router for fast data transfer and signal range. But i don't play video games, just wanted to be safe than sorry. 90% of the time my NR1606 cannot find the device and for the past month i cannot connect to Pandora remotely or from the receiver. My opinion and conclusion is you equipment are one of the best, however this app aggravates me every time.
Pretty good with only minor issues I apparently am one of the few people who likes this app! The only thing which doesn't work well for me is the volume function. Everything else works with practically no lag but the volume just doesn't work with me. I would like to have this fixed and it would be perfect in my opinion!
I'm rather surprised how bad it is You would think that for such a high end product, that has had a lot of care put into it, could never allow such a disgusting app. Marantz should be embarrassed. Its has made me regret my purchase. They are clearly not as good as they sound
Consider SONOS instead -- seriously, if an app-based remote ID important to you then buy from a company that knows software. FWIW... the recent receiver firmware update actually made problems worse. The most frustrating problem is the complete inability for the receiver to shuffle when the request is made from Android. Making the shuffle request from iPhone, web, or on-screen works fine. Which is just baffling, why should the platform used to make the shuffle request even matter after the request is made?
