With a new DAC and CD mechanism, the Marantz CD5005 is better than ever.

Enhanced sound quality

At the heart of the CD5005 is a new, top quality Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC. Respected for its high resolution sound, it's coupled to Marantz's own HDAM SA2 output buffer for reduced noise levels and a highly detailed, accurate sound quality. The CD5005 also features a new transport mechanism that employs customised components for enhanced performance and reliability.

Fully equipped and pitch control
As well as its first-rate sound quality, the Marantz CD5005 also includes a broad range of features. Pitch control is an unusual feature but ideal for dance students or music scholars. Both optical and coaxial digital outputs are provided, ensuring you can connect to a wide range of digital recorders/amps or, in the future, a better quality DAC. Rounding off this impressive CD player is a headphone output with dedicated volume control and remote control.

High quality finish
Unlike some of its competitors, the Marantz CD5005 features a full metal chassis that includes a profiled metal front panel. When combined with the anti-resonance feet, it gives the CD5005 excellent resistance to mechanical and electrical interference, helping to reduce distortion on playback.

For a budget CD player that neither looks nor performs like one, the Marantz CD5005 is on another plain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don’t worry, just get it Chances are that if you’re looking at this particular model of CD player, you’ve been doing some research for yourself and want a decent CD player but aren’t sure if you want to fork out £350 or so for the Cd6006 UK edition or similar. Well be assured that if you buy this one instead you’ll still be getting something really fab sounding. From what I can tell the main components (such as the dac) are exactly the same and also you have the option to turn all the non essential components off for a better sound. I like a real mix of stuff: pop, jazz, rock, hip hop, classical and really old primitively recorded stuff, so far it is all sounding good. If you have a really top end Hifi set up already then I doubt you’ll be checking out this model, if you have a fairly okay set up (like me, I mean I love my amp and speakers but they didn’t cost a bomb), then chances are this will suit your needs to a tee. To my ears everything sounds clear and natural. Get this then treat yourself to a couple of new cds!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great CD player ! Having reviewed the market in this price range, I chose the CD5005 and I am delighted with it. It replaced a 25 year old technics player and is definitely a step up. Great sound and I hear things that the old player could not reproduce

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A big improvement on my 17-year-old Pioneer. Fine-sounding machine, well-build and smooth mechanics. If I have a minor grumble, the display is a little small, so I can't read the track number or title from my listening position, but that's all. Whether classical or opera, death-metal or folk-rock, it serves up the goods sonically. Used with a Denon amp and Royd Sorcerer speakers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good. Bought this almost as an experiment. I have a 20 yr old Marantz CD63 K.I.S., a very respectable £500 player in it’s day, and wanted to see if CD has come along at all in all that time. The short answer is ‘NO’ - this player is roughly on a par with the older player sonically, but the old 63 is surely somewhat diminished through use and old age (lasers lose power, electronics fade etc). However, this player was only £170 and I am pleased with the sound. Build in most areas seems superior, but there are rumblings on the web suggesting the disc spinning mechanisms are greatly inferior to the good old days (built down to a price and mainly for computers) and that longevity is likely to be an issue - a player lasting 20 years of fairly constant use and still going strong? This isn’t likely with the current crop of players (at any price). Finally, no disc handling problems so far or the slowness some have complained about. Sound is crisp, clear, refined and sparkles. The last word in absolute resolution and dynamics, no, but any shortfall is minimal. Even 20 years ago, when CD was a battleground worth contesting, you’d need to spend at least £700 to get a significant improvement. I would be very doubtful about spending more. recommended.
