Excerpt: Solid and reliable, very warm sound, a nice surprise for digital A pleasure to operate, but mostly a pleasure to listen to it. One word of advice, do not skip on wiring, a cheap one will waste your investment
Summary: I'm not a real audiophile, but I do have a set of Martin Logan speakers, an Acurus amplifier, and a Rotel preamp. The Marantz CD6005 sounds great with this system. You really feel the soundstage, and get a lot from the music that you might not have noticed with a standard stereo.
Summary: When using the unit for the first time I was struck by the quality of the hardware... the simple sound of the tray opening was a revelation for me... a huge improvement over the old plastic tray cd player I had before. Hearing the music only confirmed for me that this was money well spent.
Summary: I own vintage and new Marantz receivers, turntables and cd players . Purchasing the cd6005 is allowing me to rediscover and really enjoy my cd library. Crutchfield delivers on price and service and that is why I continue to come back.
Pros: Quality, price, sound reproduction, everything I am looking for.
