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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice sounding CD with above average build quality CD transport and overall build quality better than expected for the price point. Sound quality is good for the price. Recommendable for those on a tight budget.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ah, that's how my CDs are meant to sound.. Bought this to replace a 30 year old Technics player. Even with my rather ancient amp, the quality of the sound was so much better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lots of "buts" It looks great and sounds great most of the time . . BUT It will play only pristine CDs and there is no easy way (that I can find) of bypassing a track that is skipping. The remote is so full of buttons it's impossible to find pause quickly while answering the phone etc. You even have to select CD on the remote before it will do anything - how stupid is that? And as others have noted, it's really slow to work, especially eject and play. I loved the look of it and it got great reviews but I wish I had bought something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding fidelity Deeply impressed with the clarity and fidelity of the sound produced; definitely worth avoiding the lower budget models in favour of this one. The hardware is also reassuringly secure and very pleasing ascetically.
