Match Made in Heaven for Digital Music Lovers
The Marantz CD6006 CD player is a match made in heaven for the music lover who wants nothing but the best performance at an attractive price. It is also perfect for lovers of portable music, thanks to its iPod-digital connectivity. The CD6006 also features a newly developed, complex headphone amplifier with headphone amp gain setting for a wider range of headphones. In addition, Marantz includes a new remote that also controls the PM6006 amp.
The CD6006 is a new fine-tuned version of Marantz's popular CD6005 CD player with even more specially selected components and a new layout circuit. Marantz also added more rigid feet to further eliminate vibration. The oversized power supply feeds the digital and analog circuitry of the player, where the high-quality CS4398 DAC converts digital signals to analog. This is then 'pushed' to the gold-plated synch outputs by Marantz's own small signal amplifier, the HDAM-SA2.
Excels with USB Audio Sources, Too
The CD6006 isn't "just" a CD player. It also offers hi-res playback of stored digital music files and may well be the only digital music player you'll ever need. The CD6006 can play back MP3, WMA, WAV, and AAC files from a connected USB storage device via a convenient front-panel interface. It is also specifically "Made for iPod/iPhone", to directly play back your iDevice music through the CD Player's high quality D/A converters.
Marantz HDAM Technology
Marantz developed its own discrete circuit boards to replace standard IC's. These HDAMs consists of discrete surface mount components with short mirror image L/R signal paths. They are doing exactly the same thing as the Op-Amps, but the HDAMs outperform the regular IC Op-amps dramatically in terms of the slew rate and reduced noise level, resulting in a much more dynamic, accurate and detailed sound. Over the years Marantz developed different types of the HDAM to improve quality and to fit to the special requirements of a product category like a CD player or amplifier.
Reference Quality D/A Conversion
The CD6006 features high-resolution digital-to-analog conversion and is equipped with the reference class CS4398 D/A converter, which provides up to 192 kHz/24 bit resolution for optimum fidelity with high resolution audio file types.
Continuing Marantz's commitment to high quality construction and design, the audio power supply employs high speed, high current Shottky Barrier Diodes and high current storage capacitors.
Connections consist of one pair of analog RCA outputs, a front panel USB interface, a digital optical output, an optical digital output, and a headphone out.
HDAM-SA2 Headphone Amplifier
Many manufacturers include a headphone jack as more of an afterthought than an audiophile feature. The headphone amplifier section of the CD6006 is pure Marantz all the way. It cuts no corners and delivers superior performance. It features Marantz's HDAM-SA2 circuit with three gain settings (Low/Mid/High), ensuring that it's a perfect match for a wide range of headphones. The jack accommodates 1/4" headphone plugs.
