The CD5004 plays CD, CD-R and CD-RW discs as well as MP3 and WMA files. And perhaps more importantly, it helps reproduce high-quality audio. That’s because it incorporates high-quality audio components such as the famous CS4392 DAC as well as the Marantz-own HDAM-SA2. It also includes customised components for sound tuning and a reliable CD transport mechanism. The Audio EX(clusive) mode further enhances sound quality by switching off functions, such as digital output and pitch control that are not in use. The Auto Music Scan (AMS) quickly finds the music on the disc and the Quick Replay function repeats favourite passages. In addition, high-grade gold-plated analogue outputs guarantee best connectivity. A well-defined headphone output, an easy to read display, and a remote control rounds off this excellent player.
