Retuned Circuitry Upgrades an Acclaimed Predecessor
The Marantz CD6005 CD player is the successor to the highly acclaimed CD6004. It features what Marantz calls a 'sound quality brush-up,' which is a modest way of saying that you can expect even better sonic performance. The USB-A front panel input is iPod direct and supports WAV playback from thumb drives and other devices.
Through the use of audiophile-grade components and proprietary circuit topologies, the Marantz CD6005 compact disc player reproduces your CDs with superb quality. When connected to a good set of speakers or headphones, it delivers a satisfying balance of bass, midrange, and treble that is sure to please music lovers.
Advanced audio circuitry and audiophile-grade components ensure crisp, faithful sound reproduction. Multiple inputs and outputs make it easy to connect to MP3 players, AV receivers, and more.
Superior Technology for Exceptional Sound
The CD6005 Compact Disc Player features Marantz HDAM-SA2 circuits. These ultra-fast, custom op-amp-like circuits are tuned to meet the specific needs of the CD6005. A current buffer design eliminates interference from preamp input circuitry. In addition, audio outputs are laid out in symmetrical fashion, allowing for more dynamic, accurate, and detailed sound and pinpoint imaging.
Cirrus Logic CS4392 DAC
The CD6005's SACD-quality, 24/192-capable D/A converters feature ideal linearity, no distortion due to resistor matching errors, no performance drift over time and temperature, and high tolerance to excessive clock jitter (time-domain irregularities) sometimes produced by other digital stages. In other words, the Cirrus Logic CS 4398 offers spectacular sound quality that remains constant regardless of its environment.
Versatile Player Reads Multiple Formats
The CD6005 reads a wide variety of CD media and file types. CD, CD-R, and CD-RW media are all supported, as are MP3, WMA, and traditional PCM file types. Textual data from encoded discs (artist, song title, etc.) is shown on the front panel display.
Buffered Headphone Out with Volume Control
Most CD players that even have a headphone output seem to add it as an afterthought. But not the CD6005. Its high-quality headphone stage is a joy to listen to, reflecting the attention that Marantz paid to this important feature. An op amp plus buffering circuitry delivers superior sound.
iPod Direct USB-A Interface
The CD6005 works with iPod and iPhone, as well as USB thumb drives and hard disc drives, giving you easy access to your entire digital music library. The front-panel USB-A interface is iPod direct and will also recharge your attached iPad, iPod, or iPhone.
Intuitive, Durable Front Panel and Remote
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. The panel is finished in a soft black tone, and features a graceful curvature that complements any home décor.
A multi-function IR remote control is included. The CD6005 is backed by a three-year limited warranty from Marantz.

|So good its upsetting|
Bought the 6005 to replace an Arcam CD23 Ive had for years. Use it in a setup primarily with headphones. Have had the system in its current configuration about two years. DAC bought it on the Arcam and it was getting pretty tired. Figured I would have to spend at least $1k to get similar performance to my Arcam. Boy was I wrong. I read over all the reviews I could find on the 6005 because unfortunately I couldnt audition in person. I tend to not really buy pro reviews and was concerned reading some reviews saying the Marantz was bright. Im no longer concerned. Unboxed the player and hooked it up expecting some break in/warm up time. Threw my headphones on just to make sure I had everything setup right. Ended up listening to the whole album and another. Sitting there stunned because this player destroys my old Arcam. I guess pretty well regarded in its time. How Marantz does this at this price is amazing. The sound is very well balanced. Sound stage is big, instrument and especially vocal separation is amazing. Bass is very vinyl like. One of my favorite attributes of a good vinyl setup is the bass. Sounds real. Well the 6005 has that bass. Not bloated or boomy but real sounding I play bass too btw. Player is not bright at all to me. I would call it very detailed bordering on analytical but not bright. Im listening to albums and hearing things for the first time. I mean clearly. Incredible value for the money.

Bought to replace my Arcam CD23. I read all the glowing reviews and expected a decent performer but didnt expect it to outperform my CD23. Well I was very surprised. This CD player absolutely destroyed my old Arcam. In every way is it better. Though it is not a SACD player it sounds amazing with all material. It prompted me to buy the matching integrated amp. I am very, very happy with this cd player it is detailed but not overly bright and just has amazing sound from top to bottom.

|Brings out the best in your cds|
This replaced an old Harmon Kardon dvd/cd player which is a nice unit and still plays our DVDs. Switching a cd between the two players was amazing. The best $500. Youll spend
