Product Description

Product Description

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 head- phone output, an easy to read display, and a remote controller rounds off this excellent player.

This is the cheapest Marantz CD player, and I bought it not really expecting it to be that good. How wrong was I? It really is fantastic and when combined with my Sennheiser HD650's and Graham Slee Novo amplifier the sound quality is nothing short of being biblically epic. Listening to Diana Krall and Norah Jones gives the impression that they are singing directly into your ear, like your own private concert in the living room. I can not comment on how these sound on speakers as I am a headphone user (terraced, thin wall house is the reason for that) but as mentioned with good headphones and an amp this CD player is spectacular.

The only downside? Now I wonder how good their more expensive reference class players sound considering their cheapest model sounds this good.

A thoroughly recommended purchase.

My very old four-times-oversampling CD player had finally died, so this was the one I chose to replace it. Previously, some modern CD players had sounded quite strained and rough compared to the original Philips machines, so I was hoping that this choice would be sound. It was a sound choice. A wide variety of music types needed to be catered for and the Marantz proved capable of delivering the goods. The sound is clean, pur and accirate, but not tinny or over-corrected. The displays can be turned off when playing to absolutely maximise sound quality, which is an excellent idea. We play classical and pop music from the beginnings of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons to Paloma Faith, and all are absolutely fine. No fuss, no problems, just a well made, slickly operating and acoustically satisfying experience.

I am very pleased with this purchase. Little money, great sound. Together with PM5004 - great team. Looking for a turntable now.

I bought this item at Christmastime. It replaced an older model Marantz CD player we had been using. The tray on the old one (probably 25 years old) had stopped working reliably. We really like the updated model. It plays MP3 discs and has a good display showing more info about each track. The remote is also good and easy to use. The sound is very balanced, as you'd expect from Marantz. I am happy with it, and the price is fair for the quality you are getting. I know you can go cheaper, but when you are buying something every 25 years, it's worth paying a little more.

Delivered next day (expected 3-5days ) - Great ! . Replaced my ageing Marantz cd 63 after reading reviews .
Very pleased with this unit - fits very well with Nad 350 amp and Mission 780's.
Very musical and performers well with all genres.
Marantz seem to get their budget CD players spot on. Highly recommend this unit at this price bracket - very good.

I bought it on impulse when my great NAD C545BEE broke down as all of them do in time. I needed something 'for the time being'. Now, after a month of running-in I think it'll stay with me much longer.

It's extremely detailed, there's a lot of air (with the right recordings) around the vocals and instruments. It's fast (but not as fast as the NAD). In fact, the major difference between the two is the quality of vocals. They're richer, more colourful on NAD, the sound is lighter, more subtle when it should be so. But, considering the price, CD5004 is not that far behind. And it should be more reliable.

I'd recommend it to everybody. At least, give it a try!

Agree with the other reviews. Item arrived quickly, but display did not work and had to arrange a replacement, hence 4 stars instead of 5. Seller was helpful and unit is working well now. Sound quality is very good as you would expect from Marantz. Would recommend this item, good quality at a reasonable price.
