Summary: I don't need to add to the more detailed comments already made about this player. Just wanted to add another 5-star review and say that the CD6005 is a great player with a marvelously warm sound.
Summary: Wow!!! I can still hardly believe it. The DAC on-board adds so much more warmth than my beloved Denon (but almost 30 years old) ... and the sound my I-phone gets thru this is outstanding ... not quite as good as my Wadia with the classic at 128 bits ... but very, very good ...
Very heavy, solidly built, and...produces great sound !

Summary: Beautiful sound, great unit, although very heavy (I need to put extra support for the shelf where it stands now). So far, I just enjoyed the sound through the headphones, during the weekend I will hook it up with the rest of my audio setup.
For $499 you get a $50 ulgy box and $450 of a great sounding cdp

Summary: I received the Marantz cd6005 cdp. Took it out of the box and thought,this is a piece of junk that I paid way to much for. After I hooked it up and it play for a bit,it showed me where Marantz has put the money at. For $499 you get a $50 ulgy box and $450 of a great sounding cdp.
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
