Excerpt: One of my two cd players died after nine years so I started looking for a replacement. I saw the Marantz CD5004 going for a bargain price at Gibby's Electronics Superstore here in Ontario, Canada. I got it without hesitation. Since the early 1970's I've known about Marantz and their reputation for high quality audio products. I wasn't disappointed. This player is well made with an uncluttered good looking front panel design. The sound reproduction is naturally clear and detailed with excellent sound staging. The LCD display is well designed and includes a feature which allows text such as title and performers encoded on the cd to be scrolled across the display when a disc is first inserted in player. I liked this player so much that when Gibby's offered a Boxing Day special at a much lower price I grabbed a second one.
Pros: Attractive design, Great price, very well made, strong, Excellent sound, very crisp and defined instruments. , great build quality, unified inbox, solid feel
Price around $300 ~400 range, it does a very good job! Happy! Cheers!

Summary: If you are audiophile guy, you should know what it is from it's specifications and I'm sure many of you will keep more than one CD player.
