Three Separate High-End Components in One Fantastic Unit
ND8006 meets all the requirements of the modern digital music listener, combining the technology of three separate audio components into one complete unit: a CD player, DAC, and digital sources hub. It offers playback from home network, local USB storage, online sources such as streaming services and Internet radio, plus HEOS support and DAC functionality – not to mention Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth. ND8006 is future-proof with support for file formats all the way up to 11.2MHz quad-DSD and 32-bit/384kHz PCM via its USB-B/USD-DAC.
Built-In HEOS for Wireless Streaming from Practically Limitless Sources
ND8006's built-in HEOS technology lets you stream and play back your favorite music wirelessly from unlimited sources. Enjoy music from TIDAL, Spotify, TuneIn, Internet radio, Sound Cloud, Napster, Deezer, and your local music file libraries. Listen to whole-home audio when you play music on your HEOS speakers or HEOS-enabled receivers, and seamlessly control it all from the HEOS app.
HEOS + Alexa: Just Speak Your Commands
Use your voice to stream your favorite music services to this HEOS-enabled device. Ask Alexa to play music from Pandora, Spotify, Amazon Music, and much more. Switch between inputs (Blu-ray, DVD, media player,), turn volume up or down, pause, mute and play the next song – all with your voice. To start streaming with Alexa voice commands, open the Alexa app and select "Skills." Add HEOS Home Entertainment to enable. Then, go to Smart Home in the Alexa app menu and choose Devices and Discover or say "Alexa, discover my devices." With HEOS Home Entertainment and Alexa, you can stream to ND8006 and any other HEOS-enabled device.
Audiophile D/A Conversion, Proprietary Marantz HDAM, and OFF Mode Setting
ND8006 contains audiophile-standard ESS9016 Sabre DAC with dual crystal clocks to ensure accurate handling of all digital signals. Included analog circuitry combined with famous Marantz Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Modules (HDAMs) creates wide dynamic range and lower distortion. In place of the all-in-one "chip amplifiers" used elsewhere, the miniature HDAMs are built from separate, optimized components for the very best sound quality. For further sonic excellence, ND8006 has an individual "OFF mode" setting that lets you switch off unused sections to avoid any chance of interference and keep the audio source signal paths as pure as possible. The shielded toroidal transformer minimizes internal noise while the rigid, double-layer chassis cares for optimal shielding and stability.
Marantz Musical Digital Filtering (MMDF)
ND8006 features unique Marantz Musical Digital Filtering (MMDF), inspired by the company's audiophile reference-class technology. For Marantz, using standard digital filter solutions is not an option, given this filtering is crucial to the sound reproduction of digital input signals. As a solution, Marantz engineers developed highly-acclaimed Marantz Music Mastering technology, used in Marantz's award-winning Premium Range 10 Series products. Adapted for ND8006, this advanced technology is referred to as Marantz Musical Digital Filtering. Two selectable, digital filter characteristics easily cater to different tastes, with each handling the minutest detail with the utmost care in the digital audio signal, transforming new media files into high-resolution playback.
Loaded with Hi-Fi Connectivity and Quality
Optical and coaxial digital inputs plus a USB-B port let you stream music directly from a PC, Mac, and other digital sources. The USB-B works in a synchronous mode to support high-resolution 32-bit/384kHz as well as DSD 2.8MHz, 5.6MHz, and 11.2MHz for maximized performance. To safeguard quality when connected to a computer, Marantz built extended isolation around the USB-B input to eliminate the chance of high-frequency noise generated by the computer entering ND8006. The front USB port also accepts USB thumb or hard drives for standard music file playback.
Wireless Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Streaming Connectivity
With Bluetooth and Wi-Fi wireless streaming connectivity, ND8006 is equipped with an advanced dual-antenna transceiver system for robust streaming even in congested urban environments. Plus, Apple AirPlay lets you listen to your favorite music wirelessly from your iPhone, iPad, and other iOS devices.
Dedicated Headphone Amplifier with HDAM-SA2
Enjoy music directly from your headphones with a high-quality headphone stage that features a dedicated amplifier module, HDAM-SA2. To work with a wider variety of headphones, the gain factor can be gradually increased, making it possible to drive low – to-high-impedance headphones.
Independent Variable Output Terminal
ND8006 provides a separate variable level connection output to powered speakers, active speakers, or a power amplifier direct input, which means you can use it as a multi-source digital player/preamplifier. Volume can be controlled from the remote handset or via apps.
