The Marantz CD5005 CD player features the reference class Cirrus CS4398 24 bit/192 kHz DACalong with HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) technology to deliver the best quality audio possible. The center-mounted CD drive mechanism is compatible with music CDs, CD-Rs and CD-RW discs, and the player features multiple file type playback capability, including MP3, WMA and AAC file types. Of special interest to musicians, the CD5005 features adjustable pitch, which allows fine tuning of the tempo for CD digital audio as well as PCM-based audio files. Of course, the Audio EX modes can disable the pitch control, digital audio outputs, and the front panel display for maximum fidelity.
Marantz HDAM Technology
Instead of employing conventional IC-based op amp chips in the final audio output stage, the CD5005 features HDAM-SA2 discrete component modules, which provide wide bandwidth, fast slew rate, low noise and low distortion. The HDAM-SA2 is a highly refined HDAM module, with superior performance compared to earlier versions, and is al;so found on Marantz' high end disc players and audiophile network audio players.
Fully Discrete Headphone Amplifier
The all discrete headphone amplifier section features premium components selected for top audio fidelity, and is compatible with the widest range of headphone types, including low impedance models, and features a front panel adjustable volume control
Audio EX Modes
For highest sound quality, the CD5005 includes 2 Audio EX modes:
- Audio EX Mode 1 disables the pitch control and the digital audio outputs.
- Audio EX Mode 2 disables the pitch control and the digital audio outputs, and blanks the front panel display during playback (the display returns when playback is stopped or paused), and is the preferred mode for the best possible playback fidelity from the analogue audio outputs.
For compatibility with the widest range of external digital audio devices and decoders, the CD5005 features both optical and coaxial digital audio outputs. To ensure optimum signal transfer and long term signal integrity, the CD5005 uses gold plated analogue audio output connectors.
System Remote Control
The ergonomic remote control features a user-friendly keypad layout, with additional dedicated buttons to control a Marantz amplifier and a Marantz network audio player. You can also connect the CD5005 to a Marantz amplifier via the remote control output port and from the amp to a Marantz network audio player for reliable remote control operation. This lets you place the CD5005 on a shelf for easy accessibility, while the amplifier and network audio player can be tucked away in a cabinet, to reduce visual system clutter.
Two line Fluorescent Display
The easy to read fluorescent display features clear alpha-numeric characters as well as a range of punctuation characters for instant readout of track titles, artist/album names and other information. The CD5005 is also compatible with music discs that feature CD Text.
