An in-depth look at Marantz’s pricey Consolette speaker dock

Since posting our first impressions piece on the Marantz Consolette, we’ve heard quite a few comments about its lofty price tag. That’s understandable. We wonder ourselves: What in the blazes of hell justifies a suggested price of $1,200 for a networked speaker dock with a mobile device app?

We stopped by the Marantz exhibit held offsite at CEDIA 2012 for a chat with Jim Ludoviconi, who explained why the Consolette demands such a premium price. In this video, we get an in-depth look at the Marantz Consolette’s features and Marantz’s opinion on why this speaker is so unique. We’ll let you decide whether the Consolette looks worth the premium scratch.
