Marantz CD6005 CD Player.
How can you improve a legend? Simple, design and build another one! The CD6005 replaces the very well respected and outstandingly reviewed CD6004. This an upgraded version and not just simply a "replacement".
The use of specially selected components helps achieve an outstanding musical performance. Ordinary CD players employ conventional IC-based op-amps in the Digital and analog output sections. The CD6005 is equipped with HDAM technology, which uses discrete circuit elements and not ICs. HDAM technology provides wide dynamic range and wide frequency response along with lowest distortion that Marantz are famous for.
The unit and is equipped with a 92 kHz/24 bit reference class CS4398 D/A converter for optimum fidelity. This DAC is also fitted to higher end models and the latest PM6005 Amplifier . To prevent interference with the critical analog audio output circuitry, the digital audio circuit block is housed in its own shielded subsection.
The inclusion of a solid metal base plate and a completely new centralised the CD mechanism is how Marantz have virtually eliminated vibration.
To achieve a stable power supply to the various circuit areas, the power supply employs high speed, high current Shottky Barrier Diodes in the AC-DC conversion circuit and the power supply is fitted with high current storage capacitors for a stable DC supply to the mechanical and electrical sections.
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.
For compatibility and functionality with digital audio amplifiers and other components, the CD6005 is equipped with both optical and coaxial digital audio outputs.
A USB connection on the front panel works with many USB memory devices, and is compatible with iPod and iPhones so you can enjoy your favourite iTunes tracks with superb sound quality. You can also charge your device while listening.
For your convenience, a two line fluorescent display is utilised which features alpha-numeric characters, and is compatible with CD Text music discs.
For improved analogue audio output quality, the Audio EX function lets you disable the front panel fluorescent display, to minimize noise artifacts. You can also disable the digital audio outputs when listening via analogue audio for even greater noise reduction.
The discrete headphone amplifier section features the ability to properly drive a wide range of headphones, regardless of impedance or sensitivity. It is also equipped with a volume control. Input is via a gold plated 6.35mm (¼") jack socket.
