The Marantz Difference: Proprietary HDAM Technology and Excellent Power Supply
Ordinary CD players employ conventional IC-based op-amps in the D/A and analog output sections. CD6005 is equipped with HDAM technology, which uses discrete circuit elements, not ICs. HDAM technology provides wide dynamic range and wide frequency response along with lowest distortion for utmost musical fidelity. For the most stable power to the various circuit blocks, the power supply employs high-speed, high-current Shottky Barrier Diodes in the AC-DC conversion circuit. The power supply is fitted with high-current storage capacitors for the most stable DC supply to the mechanical and electrical sections.
Stellar DAC for High-Resolution Playback
CD6005 features high-resolution D/A conversion and is equipped with the reference-class CS4398 D/A converter, which provides up to 24-bit/192kHz resolution for optimum fidelity with high-resolution audio files. To prevent interference with the critical analog audio output circuitry, the digital audio circuit block is housed in its own shielded subsection.
Bonuses: Fully Discrete Headphone Amplifier and Audio EX
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 ¼-inch jack is compatible with audiophile and studio headphones and adapters. For improved analog audio output fidelity, Audio EX lets you disable the front-panel fluorescent display to minimize noise artifacts. You can also disable the digital audio outputs when listening via analog audio for even greater noise reduction.
Connectivity Abounds: Front USB Port, Optical and Coaxial Digital Audio Outputs, More
Conveniently located on the front panel, the USB port lets you connect a USB memory device, and the port is iPod and iPhone compatible, with 5V/1A output that lets you charge your device while listening to your favorite tracks. The included remote control also lets you control your iPod or iPhone. For optimum compatibility with digital audio amplifiers and decoders, CD6005 is equipped with both optical and coaxial digital audio outputs. The audio connectors, along with the digital coaxial output connector, are all gold-plated to ensure optimum signal transfer with no degradation.
Ergonomic Remote and Attractive Display
The supplied remote control features an easy to use ergonomic design and can control CD6005 as well as the matching PM6005 integrated stereo amplifier. It can also control your iPod or iPhone. For optimum visual clarity, CD6005 features a deluxe two-line fluorescent display that features alpha-numeric characters and is compatible with CD Text music discs.
