Marantz NA6005 Network Audio Player

Marantz announced a new mid-range Network Audio Player for $649 to complement the already introduced PM6005 and CD6005 amplifier/CD player duo. The NA6005 opens up a whole new world of nearly unlimited digital music sources to existing stereo components. Most remarkably, the NA6005 features Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology on board, as well as unique Marantz audio technologies to offer ultimate connectivity options and best in sound performance at the same time.

Similar to its predecessors the NA-11S1 and NA8005, the new NA6005 inherits a lot of reference class technologies for demanding yet price-cautious music lovers. To guarantee the world-renowned Marantz quality the cabinet has been made very rigid, the power supply extra strong, and sound parts have been strictly selected. Owners can enjoy all their music in pure, unadulterated clarity, thanks to the NA6005’s high-class Digital-Analog-Converter and unique output stage. The audio circuitry employs Marantz’s exclusive HDAM and HDAM-SA2 in a hybrid configuration to achieve low noise and high speed for detailed and powerful playback at the same time.

Through built-in Wi-Fi or Ethernet port, the NA6005 connects to a home network accessing thousands of Internet radio stations and popular music streaming services like Spotify Connect. It is likewise equipped with Apple’s Airplay so users can stream their iTunes music, whether from a Mac or PC, as well as directly from their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Thanks to its DLNA 1.5 compatibility, music lovers can also access their local file libraries on a Network Attached Storage device (NAS) or a Computer Media Server, and playback numerous audio file types, including WAV, WMA, MP3 and AAC. Moreover, the NA6005 can playback high resolution audio files including DSD2.8MHz/5.6MHz, FLAC 192/24, WAV 192/24, AIFF and ALAC for ultimate audio fidelity. Gapless is supported for the uninterrupted enjoyment of a live concert or classical recording.

The front USB input expands the musical horizons even more, allowing users to enjoy iPhone and iPod audio via a digital connection. Users can hear the music with new detail and richness through their home audio system, with sonic refinements made possible thanks to the NA6005’s advanced circuitry. Built-in Bluetooth capability even allows owners to connect a wide variety of supporting handheld devices with the touch of a finger. In addition, there is an optical digital input to connect a TV or cable box. But amazingly, all this versatility is extremely easy to operate, via the large display or the new dedicated Marantz Hi-Fi Remote App. It all makes the NA6005 an open door to a myriad of music stations, podcasts, documentary channels and more – all with the best possible audio quality.

    Marantz on the cutting edge here. A forward thinking product at a decent price. Built in support for Tidal would have been cool but you could always just plug in your ipod and work around that.

      Being DLNA/UPNP compliant, you stream Tidal,Qobuz and anything else using your control point. Just “plugging in your ipod” isn’t really a solution as you WON’T get the benefits of full high resolution or get the DAC in operation. To be honest, I don’t think you’ve used this as there’s no analogue input to “just plug in” your iPod. Yes you can connect via Bluetooth or WiFi, but that’s not “plugging in”.
      I know this thread is old, but people still look for information and reviews and when a comment is so misleading it’s only fair it’s corrected.
      So anyone seeing this, I have this connected to my LAN via cable. I stream everything from FLAC rips (44.1 to 192) plus Qobuz and Tidal without any issues. The thing is, you need a control point to get the full benefits, otherwise you end up with a misleading impression like the one above.
