Streaming music

Recommended Posts

I learned that Marantz recently brought a less costly streaming tool to market, their NA 6006. Managed to buy one for $100 less than asking. Now I need to learn how to get the most from it and I am an easily confused digital moron. I used their ‘quick start’ guide and I am streaming pandora via my iPad Pro using Bluetooth. Not real pleased with this set up. I downloaded the full manual, all 133 pages. It may as well be in hieroglyphs. 😳🤔🥺
 

All I have for this is the iPad and my router. I know I can subscribe to a number of services. But I’d like to use something other than the Bluetooth link........   it sounds compressed and it drops out occasionally. Tried using ‘airplay’ but that kills the Bluetooth that is used for other devices.  I’d be willing to purchase additional hardware if required. So - like I am a toddler - y’know ‘abc123’ simple....... can ye help out this olde, ancient person??? Please be patient.

Sorry no help on that device. If you want simple get a Sonos connect. Analog or digital out to pre/AVR/integrated/DAC or whatever. You will be up and running in 3 minutes

I am learning more (it’ll be an ongoing learning curve I’m a thinking). Apparently I can direct play using voice commands via ‘Siri’. I know I could interface an ‘alexa’ or other device for this as well. 
 

Lemme ask this. Is there a computer/cellphone with a better quality Bluetooth signal?

I don't know anything about the unit..but it sounds like you are using the iPad as the source and getting that music to the player using bluetooth. The better way would be to use the apple airplay which I would be surprised if the Marantz isn't compatible. I would also think that you can use the Marantz as the source and the iPad as a controller. Figuring out that approach would be best.

I do have airplay and the marantz will accept it. But when I shift to ‘airplay’ the iPad automatically turns off the ‘Bluetooth’ which is used for other devices. So it seems to be one or the other.

Update - 1st ‘airplay’ is not the same as ‘airplane’ - both are functions on my iPad and I had them confused. Of course being nearly identical terms abets said confusion but clearly it is my over abundance of digital idiocy in play. So I do now how have ‘airplay’ operational. Things are better.

 

I do not understand why operation manuals are so user unfriendly. How hard can it be to make computer based systems user easy?
