Entry Level Player with Technology Borrowed from CD6005
Entry-level never sounded so good! The Marantz CD5005 is designed to deliver breathtaking musical from compact discs, thanks to technology borrowed from the more expensive CD6005, including the center-mounted CD drive. This is one CD player that significantly outperforms its price point!
The CD5005 features a range of reference class technologies including Marantz's exclusive HDAM-SA2 (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) discrete circuit topology along with the high resolution CS4398 D/A conversion system, which delivers up to 192 kHz/24 bit resolution.
The center mounted CD drive mechanism is securely fastened to the chassis to minimize vibrations, and the digital audio circuit block is housed in its own shielded subsection. The player is compatible with music CDs, CD-R and CD-RW discs, and can play a wide range of file types, including WAV, AAC, WMA and MP3 files.
Marantz HDAM Technology
Ordinary CD players employ conventional IC-based op-amps in the D/A and analog output sections, but the CD5005 is equipped with Marantz's exclusive HDAM-SA2 technology, which uses discrete circuit elements and not ICs. HDAM technology provides wide dynamic range and wide frequency response along with lowest distortion for the utmost musical fidelity.
Reference Quality D/A Conversion
The CD5005 features high resolution D/A conversion and is equipped with the same reference class CS4398 DAC used in the CD6005, which provides up to 192 kHz/24 bit resolution for optimum fidelity with high resolution audio file types.
Fully Discrete Headphone Amplifier
The all discrete headphone amplifier section features the ability to properly drive the widest variety of headphone types, regardless of impedance or sensitivity, and the headphone output is equipped with a volume control. The gold plated 1/4" jack is compatible with audiophile and studio headphone types and adapters.
Sophisticated Aluminum/Glass-reinforced Resin Front Panel
The front panel's central aluminum portion shields internal circuitry. The glass-reinforced resin adds cosmetic appeal as it can be easily and precisely molded. In addition, this advanced material adds increased impact resistance and vibration isolation, higher rigidity, and heat resistance.
Quick Replay Function
What did your favorite artist just do? Find out by pushing the remote's "Q Replay" button to repeat the last 10 seconds of the current track. Push it twice to repeat the last 20 seconds and so on for up to 60 seconds of Quick Replay.
Audio EX Mode
Pristine sound quality is the number one priority from Marantz. Audio EX lets you bypass the CD5005's convenience features like digital outputs and display to give you super-quiet performance.
IR Flasher input
Connect the CD5005 to other components in your home entertainment system and enjoy system-wide remote control capability. Or slide the switch to 'Internal' to use the remote controller supplied with your CD5005.
IEC320 AC Input with Detachable Power Cord
The CD5005 uses the industry-standard IEC connector for positive connection to your AC line and long-term reliability. The detachable AC cord allows much simpler connection to your AC source, especially when you've placed your CD5005 in a cabinet or other limited access area.
Speaking of connections, the CD5005 uses gold plated analog, coaxial, and optical digital outputs. In addition to adding a touch of elegance, gold plating reduces corrosion and enhances the connector's conductivity.
