5.0 out of 5 stars Silky Smooth and Slick, 7 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Marantz CD/MP3 Player CD5004 - Black (discontinued by manufacturer) (Accessory)
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.

Yes it does, but we have switched the display off. There is a reason - the instructions indicate that for the highest quality the display can be turned off to prevent it adding any noise or distortion. The difference may be tiny, but it seems like a good idea.
