Summary: Purchased this unit on February 2, 2015 to complete my all Marantz (SR6008, UD5007, CD6005) system. All units are affordable audiophile quality, function properly, and the picture and sound is excellent. It's all also very beautiful to look at.
it depends greatly on your audio system and cd disks

Summary: Here are the AUDIBLE differences ( sound always TAKEN from RCA Audio LINE OUT, and never headphone output ) of the Marantz cd 6005, VS the various marantz CD 5000 series models. IF one uses the stax srs 2170 system on the backs of these cd machines, even with that basic headphone system, one notes that, the 5000series have MORE quantity of BASS, as well as LOWER midrange, than the 6005.
Summary: 2/20/15...... editing this review, have had the cd player 5 days now. cds are now playing 1st track without kicking player off, thats wonderful news for me. the bass is now starting to come around as well, i want to be as fair as i can to marantz , i should have held off till now or later to write a review. the sound of the cds now equal the sound through its usb port being driven by a flash drive.
Summary: I'm not an audiophile, I just enjoy listening to music. Through its precise capturing of sound (e.g. of individual instruments) the Marantz CD 6005 adds a dimension to the experience, which is rather thrilling. My Emotiva ERC-2 had a richness of tone, which I truly enjoyed, but it stopped reading CDs, drat. Instead of waiting for repairs I bought the Marantz and am glad I did.

Summary: OVERALL, I'M PLEASED WITH THE QUALITY OF THE SOUND OF MUSIC BEING PRODUCED. I'VE OWNED OTHER PLAYERS WITH EQUAL QUALITY - HOWEVER - AT A GREAT DEAL LESS MONEY. THE OWNER'S MANUAL LEAVES A GREAT DEAL TO BE DESIRED & THE CD ROM (WHATEVER) INCLUDED FOR MORE DETAILS - DIDN'T WORK ON MY COMPUTER (UN-READABLE).I FIND IT STRANGE THAT THE DRAWER FOR THE CD DOESN'T OPEN ON THE 1ST. ATTEMPT - I HAVE TO PRESS THE BUTTON REPEATEDLY BEFORE OPENING.
Summary: My 15 year old Sony CD player just decided to take a break. While researching new CD players, I came across this player. I liked the high reviews that it received, so I decided to go for it. I am pleasantly surprised how much better this player sounds over my old Sony. I really like the feature allowing playback off an IPod. I wish the unit allowed adjustment of the volume.
Summary: Second malfunctioning unit. First unit would not play discs. Not a one. "No disc" error on every CD. Second unit displays "over current" when I connect my iPhone. Will not play from iPhone (did at first). Poor quality control. Won't try another one -- or any Marantz product for that matter.
