IMHO, this is THE most value-for-money CDP.

  • Summary: IMHO, this is THE most value-for-money CDP. 1. Quality of sound reproduction of CDs is impeccable. 2. High frequencies are bright and clear enough without sounding harsh with a lot of headroom. 3. Mid frequencies, e.g. the vocals and instruments are all there, lots of clarity and layering. 4. Low frequencies comes out very well with a lot of depth and definition...not blurry. 5. Wide soundstage, with a lot of depth and space. 6. The onboard DAC is a CS4398..

Unique player

Jeff Free, Amazon

  • Summary: This unit has excellent detail and soundstage. I've done some level matched A-B listening tests over the past couple of months. Comparing it to NAD, another older Marantz, TEAC and the Emotiva XDA-2 DAC. This Marantz has a unique way of "ungluing" the instruments so they stand out individually. The soundstage is always wider and deeper and more enveloping. Low level acoustic recordings will have a nicer detail, where the top end doesn't get lost.

Outstanding!

Jay C., Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using a $3200 Meridian cd player for about 6 years. I wanted to try the Marantz because of the great reviews, but I wasn't prepared for how fantastic it sounds. The music is much more enjoyable to me with the Marantz. CDs that I didn't think I wanted to hear anymore now have new life. Marantz started as an American company and represented quality in the 70s and 80s.

  • Summary: The reproduction is excellent, DAC performs so well I'm not using my external DAC yet. Top and bottom end are clear and full, great spacial rendition. I should have thought about units from the US being 120 v........

  • Summary: Exceptional performance. Great price. On TV display will help. Telephone tech support is exceptional. Simplicity helps where the tech used is high.

Two Steps Forward for the CD6005-One step backwards.....

Gerard Masters, Amazon
27 April 2014
  • Summary: Hello Kiddies. I've lived with this unit for a few months now and I thought I would put me two cents worth into the review section. The sound is on par with the best CD players I've heard-absolutely stellar. On the other hand it doesn't seem to have bested it's predecessor, the CD 6004. They both sound pretty much identical to these ears, which is nothing bad at all. Again, stellar sound presentation. But a couple of ergonomic changes have me going back to the 6004.

Unfortunately, I received a defective player

Big Six, Amazon
17 April 2014
  • Summary: The CD player worked well and sounded fine, but when I tried to play my iPad though the unit's USB port (an important reason for my purchase) I kept receiving an error message. Amazon tech support was very helpful and tried everything they could think of, but ultimately they told me to return it. Instead of getting a replacement, I instead decided to buy the Music Hall 15.3 CD player/DAC, with which I'm delighted.

Nice Player

  • Summary: The CD6005 is a great value w/ great sound and solid construction.
  • Pros: Sound Quality, component isolation, overall build quality. The usb port is also a nice addition
  • Cons: Doesn't play FLAC. Headphone amp not powerful enough to use w/ 300 ohm cans (headphone amp needed).
