Marantz announced the CD6004 compact disc player designed for the music lover who wants nothing but the best performance at an attractive price.
Marantz said they did everything possible to optimize the CD mechanism and power supply while insisting on premium digital-to-analog conversion with the CS4398 to ensure a mirrored symmetrical output stage with their own HDAM-SA2 amplifiers.
A solid metal bottom-plate has been added and the CD mechanism's location has been centralized. (Hence vibration has been virtually eliminated.) In addition, the stable, oversized power supply feeds the digital and analog circuitry of the player, where the high-quality CS4398 converts digital signals to analog. This is then 'pushed' to the gold-plated synch outputs by Marantz's own small signal amplifier, the HDAM-SA2.
In addition a front USB port is available for iPhone/iPod music playback.
Price and Availability
The Marantz CD6004 will be available mid-September 2011 in black or silver-gold for $599.
