The CD6005 is designed to deliver the utmost musical fidelity, and features a range of reference class technologies including our exclusive HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) discrete circuit topology along with the high resolution CS4398 D/A conversion system, which delivers up to 192 kHz/24 bit resolution. The center mount CD drive mechanism is securely fastened to the chassis to minimize vibrations, and the digital audio circuit block is housed in its own shielded subsection. The player is compatible with music CDs, CD-R and CD-RW discs, and can play a wide range of file types, including WAV, AAC, WMA and MP3 files. A convenient USB port on the front panel works with many USB memory devices, and is iPod and iPhone compatible so you can enjoy your favorite iTunes tracks with thrilling sound quality.
Marantz HDAM Technology
Ordinary CD players employ conventional IC-based op-amps in the D/A and analog output sections, but the CD6005 is equipped with our exclusive HDAM technology, which uses discrete circuit elements and not ICs. HDAM technology provides wide dynamic range and wide frequency response along with lowest distortion for the utmost musical fidelity.
High Current Power Supply
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, and the power supply is fitted with high current storage capacitors for the most stable DC supply to the mechanical and electrical sections.
Reference Quality D/A Conversion
The CD6005 features high resolution D/A 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. To prevent interference with the critical analog audio output circuitry, the digital audio circuit block is housed in its own shielded subsection.
Fully Discrete Headphone Amplifier
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" jack is compatible with audiophile and studio headphone types and adapters.
Audio EX Function
For improved analog audio output fidelity, the Audio EX function 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.
