Overview

If you've been thinking that all CD players sound the same unless you spend thousands, then you should take a listen to the Marantz CD5005. It's the kind of player that will keep you listening late into the night, rediscovering every disc in your collection. It offers a hard-to-find combination of superb audio performance, understated good looks, and affordability.

The Marantz CD5005 plays CD, CD-R and CD-RW discs as well as MP3 and WMA files. And perhaps more importantly, it helps reproduce high-quality audio. That’s because it incorporates high-quality audio components straight out of their high-end Reference Series such as the famous and advanced Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC to deliver the rich, detailed sound usually reserved from more expensive models. High-quality capacitors are used in the audio signal path for superior transient speed and better bass response — giving lifelike energy to your music. The 5005 also includes customised components for sound tuning and a reliable CD transport mechanism.

If you love your music, then the Audio EX(clusive) mode further enhances the sound quality. How? By switching off functions, such as digital output and pitch control that are not in use. By eliminating these potential noise sources, the CD5005 delivers pristine sound quality. The Auto Music Scan (AMS) quickly finds the music on the disc and the Quick Replay function repeats favourite passages. In addition, high-grade gold-plated analogue outputs guarantee best connectivity. Headphone listeners will also appreciate the built-in, high-grade headphone amplifier for private listening sessions. Marantz even uses widely spaced, gold-plated RCA jacks that won't make it difficult to install high-quality cables - see below for some recommendations. A well-defined headphone output with volume control, an easy to read display, and a remote control rounds off this excellent player.

Our Take

Marantz was one of the first brands to enter the CD player market in 1983 and right from day one our customers have given Marantz CD players top marks for their outstanding performance. They are always warm and inviting to the ear and have never had the "harshness" often associated with many of the other brands which we have always avoided. Marantz CD players sound impressive, look impressive and are very well made. If you think that all CD players sound alike, you owe it to yourself to audition the Marantz CD5005. It's the kind of player that will keep you listening late into the night, rediscovering every disc in your collection. It offers a hard-to-find combination of superb audio performance, understated good looks, and affordability.
