This CD-Player is a true musical performer and guarantees an enjoyable experience.Combining exclusive Marantz technologies and elegant styling, the CD5005 compact disc player features the reference class CS4398 24 bit/192 kHz D/A converter, the same device found on Marantz premium models. This is combined with their HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) technology which provides wide bandwidth, lowest noise and lowest distortion to deliver pure sonic performance.As you’d expect, it plays CD, CD-R and CD-RW discs as well as MP3 and WMA files.This is a great player for the money, bringing top performance at an entry level price point.
Marantz developed its own discrete circuit boards to replace standard IC's. These HDAM's consists of discrete surface mount components with short mirror image L/R signal paths. Those devices are doing exactly the same thing as the Op-Amps, but outperform the regular IC Op-amps dramatically in terms of the Slew Rate and reduced noise level, resulting in a much more dynamic, accurate and detailed sound. Over the years Marantz developed different types of the HDAM to improve quality and to fit to the special requirements of a product category like CD or amplifier.
MP3 is a lossy compression algorithm is designed to greatly reduce the amount of data required to represent the audio recording and still sound like a faithful reproduction of the original uncompressed audio for most listeners. An MP3 file that is created using the setting of 128 kbit/s will result in a file that is about 11 times smaller than the CD file created from the original audio source.
Symmetrical Circuit Layout
To achieve the best possible sonic performance, signal paths need to be short, direct and mirror imaged. The construction of our circuitry provides improved stereo imaging by ensuring close to perfect symmetry between right and left channel layout.
Remote capable to control the amplifier or receiver as well as connected source products from Marantz.
