The CD5005 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 CS4398 DAC as well as the Marantz-own HDAM-SA2. It also includes customized components for sound tuning and a reliable CD transport mechanism which is used for an upper class model, CD6005. In addition, high-grade gold-plated analogue outputs guarantee best connectivity. A well-defined headphone output with discrete amplifier circuit, an easy to read dual line display, and a remote control rounds off this excellent player.
