- Based on the “Best CD player under £500” by “What Hi-Fi Sound and Vision?” the new CD6005 is a fine-tuned version with even more specially selected components. We also added a solid metal bottom-plate and centralised the CD mechanism. That is how, for example, we virtually eliminated vibration.
- In addition, the oversized power supply feeds the digital and analogue circuitry of the player, where the high-quality CS4398 DAC converts digital signals to analogue, this is then ‘pushed’ to the gold-plated synch outputs by Marantz’s own small signal amplifier, the HDAM-SA2. In addition, we have included a new remote that also controls the PM6005 amp. There is also a new ‘low-power stand-by’ and ‘auto stand-by’ mode to save electricity.
- Altogether, the CD6005 is a match made in heaven for the music lover who wants nothing but the best performance at an attractive price. One more thing: it is also perfect for lovers of portable music, thanks to its iPod-digital connectivity.
- The CD6005 is designed to deliver the utmost musical fidelity, and features a range of reference class technologies including our exclusive HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) discrete circuit topology along with the high resolution CS4398 D/A conversion system, which delivers up to 192 kHz/24 bit resolution. The center mount CD drive mechanism is securely fastened to the chassis to minimize vibrations, and the digital audio circuit block is housed in its own shielded subsection. The player is compatible with music CDs, CD-R and CD-RW discs, and can play a wide range of file types, including WAV, AAC, WMA and MP3 files. A convenient USB port on the front panel works with many USB memory devices, and is iPod and iPhone compatible so you can enjoy your favorite iTunes tracks with thrilling sound quality.

HDAM technology provides wide dynamic range and wide frequency response along with lowest distortion for the utmost musical fidelity.
High Current Power Supply

AV Forums – Highly Recommended
- All the performance and future-proofing that you could want
- “There’s no doubt that once again Marantz have produced an AV receiver that delivers fantastic value, with a set of features and a level of performance far in excess of its £1,399 price tag….The front sound stage is wide, dialogue is clear and central, effects are seamlessly panned around the room and bass is deep and well integrated. The result is a hugely enjoyable experience made all the better by the receiver’s lovely musicality with two-channel audio. Ultimately the Marantz SR7010 is a class act that does it all and it does it well.”
