Enjoy impressive sonic performance from every disc in your CD library or every music track on your iPod or iPhone with the Marantz CD6005. This capable disc player serves up rich, organic sound, revealing layers of subtle details that will have you exploring your music collection deep into the night. How'd they do it? First, Marantz got all the technical details right, borrowing technology from their top-notch Reference series players for vanishingly low distortion, ruler flat frequency response, and ultra-low noise levels. And then they took one more highly important step, fine-tuning the sound to impart life and musicality that go beyond mere technical perfection. This is the hallmark of all great audio components.
The CD6005 features a range of reference-class technologies from Marantz's high-end disc players for out-of-this-world performance at a more down to earth price. Its precision disc transport and double-layered bottom chassis resist vibrations that can adversely affect sound. Marantz's exclusive HDAM op-amps in the D/A and analog output stages use discrete circuit elements in place of noisy, low-powered integrated circuits to provide wider dynamic range and frequency response for the utmost musical fidelity. A high-current power supply delivers plenty of clean juice for lively, low-noise playback.
Marantz also outfitted the CD6005 with a handy front-panel USB port that lets you plug in an iPod, iPhone, iPad®, or even a thumb drive that's loaded with tunes for listening through your home audio system. Plus, this direct digital connection bypasses your player's built-for-earbuds circuitry, taking advantage of the CD6005's high-end digital-to-analog-converter for the best possible sound from your portable music library.
The '6005 also boasts a built-in headphone amplifier with an all-discrete component design for robust output and the ability to properly drive a wide variety of headphones, regardless of impedance or sensitivity. The gold-plated, full-sized output jack is compatible with audiophile headphones, and is equipped with an independent front-panel volume control for convenient, high-quality private listening.
Looking for a great amplifier to pair with this CD player? Check out the Marantz PM6005.
An excellent addition to one of my two audio systems. Works well with Yamaha receiver and 4 Polk speakers (TSX 550t and R1A). Sound is mellow, rather than harsh, which is my preference. The usb connection works well and allows constant uninterrupted listening pleasure of my choice, which, combined with my CD and Dual 1229Q turntable, provides me the listening options I was looking for. Price point is very good. I highly recommend, although I acknowledge the subjective and non-technical perspective of my review.
Pros: Sound quality, ease of use, integrates well with system components.
Cons: Remote buttons could be enhanced to provide user with basic functions.
This cd player is the best one I have ever owned. CD's that I have listened to for years sound so much fuller and vibrant. It is worth the price.
Pros: Excellent sound quality and build construction
Simply the best CD player I ever owned.
Pros: Smooth in operation, looks great, matches perfectly with the rest of my Marantz set up, and has a great remote.
Cons: Too bad everybody cant have one!
This cd player is even better than my thousand dollar player for half the price.
Pros: Good build quality, smooth cd tray, open airy sound.
Cons: Wish the remote would work my Yamaha integrated amp.
When using the unit for the first time I was struck by the quality of the hardware... the simple sound of the tray opening was a revelation for me... a huge improvement over the old plastic tray cd player I had before. Hearing the music only confirmed for me that this was money well spent. I go back some forty years with Marantz and I have owned (and still do) two Marantz amps. The quality of sound, the convenience of the usb port in front to use with my iPad, iPod and iPhone is great. I can use remotes from either the amp or the cd player to control both. I have only had the unit a few weeks, but so far so good!
I own vintage and new Marantz receivers, turntables and cd players . Purchasing the cd6005 is allowing me to rediscover and really enjoy my cd library. Crutchfield delivers on price and service and that is why I continue to come back.
Pros: Quality, price, sound reproduction, everything I am looking for.
Got this thing tonight at 7:45PM from UPS. Hooked it up. Says "no disc" on brand new discs. Quality Control is not so good I guess. First time buying from Crutchfield. They are sending me another one but I was really looking forward to having this one after reading all the rave reviews here.
Cons: It doesn't play CD's.
At first, It may not be obvious why spending this amount of money on a CD player - the equivalent of > 4 years of Spotify premium subscription - would make sense. After all, Apple devices and online services provide ubiquitous access to any tune, anywhere, anytime . And if you invest a few extra dollars in a "real" pair of cans, it sounds actually ok. I thought.
At least, until I plugged my headphones (V-moda or Sennheiser momentum2) in the Marantz CD6005 and played a classical music CD (Decca, 478 6775, 2015 recording in my case): the Marantz CD6005 conveyed an entirely new dimension of spatial resolution compared connecting the same headset directly to the iPhone. This effect can (partially) be replicated if the Apple device is connected via the USB input on the front panel of the Marantz CD6005, accessing the Marantz CD6005 DAC and headphone amplifier. In summary, I would recommend the Marantz CD6005 to an audiophile friend. The package of CD player, USB accessible DAC and discrete headphone amplifier is convincing. Especially for classical music or Jazz (not sure Bluegrass music needs it; but I may be wrong there)
Pros: transparency and resolution of of music - "sound"; simplicity of design and function (except for remote control) front panel USB for DAC access and built-in headphone amplifier
Cons: Complex remote control with too many buttons (50 ! sic) for my taste; 6 high quality push buttons + a volume knob would be enough.
When paired with the Marantz integrated amp, the sound is simply amazing. Going from an old Technics CD turntable to this unit is an unfair comparison. It all starts with the weight - compared to the amp, this CD player seems just as hefty. And the sound is crystal clear with amazing detail. You can even disable unused outputs and other functions to improve the sound quality.
Pros: quality, sound, easy to use, matches perfect with the Marantz PM6005 amp, remote is flawless
Great player, the analog output beats the pants off the DAC in my Marantz 5008 receiver. I found the headphone amp to sound wimpy with my HD-650s.
Pros: Great DAC and analog output. Speedy disc reads. Handsome looks. Excellent remote.
Cons: Could use more DAC inputs, headphone amp doesn't quite drive my HD-650 headphones.
Checked many CD players as I had an old Sony ES which was great, but the transport gave out, which is well documented. Looked at many different brands up to a $600 limit. The reviews favored the Marantz CD-6005. I have a small room and did not think I would really get a dynamic soundstage. However, I was wrong. Even in my small room the Marantz CD-6005 gave an enlarged soundstage and I was amazed that I could pick out each instrument and its location. I am very satisfied with my choice, and for my small room size and the cost, I feel this unit is unbeatable.
Pros: Excellent sound stage and dynamics. Smooth operation. Separate headphone output with adjustable volume is a plus.
Cons: Remote does not have an open and close for the CD tray.
This CD player has breathed new life into my whole music collection. I paired it with the PM6005 integrated amp and the combination has reawakened my love of music... I have the system plugged into a pair of Klipsch KG2.5s which I've always felt were underwhelming (until now.) CD player buttons feel solid and are simple to use.
Pros: Well built, value for money, balanced and detailed soundstage
Cons: chintzy feeling interconnect cables in box
Not impressed. Lacks mid-range punch
Excellent product, clear & easy functions. Great sound & control system.
Pros: Easy to use controls & remote.
A really great sounding CD Player.
Pros: Crisp, clean, clear sound.
Cons: None that I can think of.
I purchased the Marantz CD6005 CD Changer to be used in tandem with the Marantz PM6005 integrated amplifier. The pair work beautifully together. The CD player produces sound which is crisp and clear.
Pros: Wonderful sound. Simple to operate.
Cons: A minor one: remote does not appear to have the capability to open and close the disc tray.
I bought this CD player as part of a 2-channel audio setup. It is a great unit and a perfect fit with the matching Marantz PM6005 2-channel amplifier. This combination really brings the music to life by providing detailed and spacious sound that easily fills any room. The unit is easy to use the USB input is a nice feature if you want to use your I-Pod as a source.
Pros: Remote works well on both the Marantz CD player and Amp. Crutchfield are great to deal with in that they provide unbiased advice and their delivery time is fast.
Cons: I see that the unit is currently out of stock - even if you are in half a mind to buy this unit then I suggest you don't hesitate when it is restocked.
Got tired of replacing the belts for the carousel tray of my long-gone Integra 6 disk CD Player. For the last 3 years, I started relying on my Panasonic Blu Ray Player for CD listening. Havn't been using it much. The Marantz turned out to be a breath of fresh air. Huge difference. Very detailed yet warm, not ear fatiguing especially at louder volumes. The music now has so much more dimension to what I got used to. I previously have gotten into a goofy habit of only listening into Multi or 5 Channel mode, but not anymore. The Icing with this Marantz is the Headphone capabilities. I've rarely used headphones in the last 30 years to listen to my music. What an awakening...I can't believe some of the details I've been missing. Decent Headphones are a must. Very happy with the purchase of the Marantz CD6005.
Pros: Great Sound reproduction. Cosmetically nice and understated. Looks and feels like a very solid build. Discrete Built-In Headphone Amp performs beautifully.
When my old Denon CD player died I spent many years playing my CDs on the DVD player. It was not the best way to listen to music. When I connected the new Marantz player I discovered what I had been missing. The music sounds better than ever before, and the headphone amplifier reveals details I never knew existed.
Pros: Good solid quality. Great sound.
Cons: None if you like to spend a lot of time listening to music.
Great sounds from both CD and ipod input. Build quality is solid. No blinding ultra bright LEDs which distract from the whole point of the matter, the music. The ipod direct functionality which bypasses ipod DACs and runs a digital signal into the marantz DACs produces a surprising improvement in sound quality. I'm running my ipod touch into the CD6005 into an old mid range model Cambridge integrated feeding my excellent def tech mythos STS towers. Simple system providing musical sounds in my primary living space. For comparison purposes, my 2 channel rig has my aged but excellent sony 777es, a 50 lb. top loader with excellent DACs. Marantz sounds a bit warmer while the 777ES is a bit more detailed and resolving. If your on the fence on this one, buy it and give it a test run in your system.
Pros: Great sounds, built quality, and ipod direct mode which charges the ipod, bypass ipod DACs, and feeds signal into the excellent marantz DACs.
I had given up on CDs. They never sounded warm or accurate to me. I admit I am (or had been) a vinyl man. I would purchase CDs purely for their content and ease of input into ITunes. Then I purchased this CD player as a bundle with the Marantz PM6005 amplifier. I am now so sorry that I sold many of my CDs.
The intergrated DAC (Digital to Analog) processor is amazing. Finally warm and clear from a digital source. Three distinct levels of processoring, from totally digital output to fully analog. Even my 60 year old ears can hear a clear difference. Plugging my IPOD Classic into the USB port, totally shocked how good it sounded, as close to a WAV file as an MP3 can get. Never before enjoyed the sound of my IPOD through an external amplifier. Added bonus, the IPOD can be controlled manually or through the remote control.
Purely subjective, as music should be, but by far the best CD carrier I had ever heard.
Pros: The DAC is amazing. USB input for IPOD or Hard-drive.
Cons: Not enough time to listen and enjoy.
I have a system with Conrad Johnson electronics and Martin Logan speakers and was feeding it with a cheap Sony DVD CD player. The old player certainly seemed like the weak link in $10k plus system and I wanted to upgrade. The Marantz sounds more dynamic than the Sony player and operates quicker and smoother. Yesterday I tried iTunes radio using the USB connector on the Marantz and it sounded surprisingly listenable without nasty compression even at above background music levels. Customer service was great! I ordered it on a weekday and had it the next day!
Pros: Sounds great, operates quickly and smoothly, shows song titles on enabled CDs, USB connection on front panel.
Cons: No optical input to use internal DAC for streaming from a digital source.
This CD player replace an ancient Denon player that had a transport mechanism that had died a decade ago. This failure was fatal The Marantz sounds great and was easy to set up. I miss the ease of selecting specific tracks on the CD player itself, but the remote is functional an integrates with the Marantz amp. Since what I really want is a solid CD player that is not musically noticeable and adds and subtracts nothing, I am pleased with this purchase thus far.
I'm upgrading from a Sherwood CD player, and was trying not to expect too much. I'm very happy with my purchase, because of the dramatic difference. I'm a classical music fan, and there was a difficulty with the lower registers(cello, etc.). That's all solved now, since there is just a great deal more information coming through.
Pros: Sound is more distinct and complex
Cons: None so far.
I haven't had a CD player in years and have been using a BluRay player when needed. This unit has replaced my BR player and I'm happy I got it. I was looking for two main features...good DAC and good headphone amp. I sampled the player with a CD and a good pair of headphones and the sound is flawless. Perfect match to my Marantz receiver.
I have listened to many CD players since their first introduction . The most expensive player I've owned was a well respected LaserDisc Cd combo player that sold for more than $1000 in the mid '80s (My how technology has changed) and have listened to many 'high end' players at the Boutique Audio Salons. This player has that High End Sound at an Affordable price. (Well reviewed in a British audio magazine.)
Pros: This player has a rhythm and pace that allow the music to sound more like a live performance than a jumbled mess of instruments playing together. Sort of like a high school band vs a Symphony Orchestra. They can both play the same song but once it has that rightness about it. Plays beautiful music.
Cons: Doesn't like dirty or scratched disc. Won't play Flac music files through USB.
I wanted a high quality unit with USB capabilities. This definitely satisfied my requirements.
Pros: Sound Stability Ease of use
The CD6005 is a great value w/ great sound and solid construction.
Pros: Sound Quality, component isolation, overall build quality. The usb port is also a nice addition
Cons: Doesn't play FLAC. Headphone amp not powerful enough to use w/ 300 ohm cans (headphone amp needed).
The trend seems to be away from CDs and more toward digital media but I have a collection of CDs that I wanted to play at home and in the car. I was looking for a "good" CD player for use with my Home Theater system of components. I found it with the Marantz CD6005. This is an excellent CD player. Many years ago I had a couple of Marantz components and I am glad to report that the name still means quality.
There are many multiple CD players available from many manufacturers including Marantz however I decided to purchase this single CD player. I wanted the player to contain high quality components but less mechanical parts used to control five or six disks. If you can not move to your CD player to change disks, you will want a CD changer but if you want the best sound for your money one disk at a time, the CD6005 is an excellent buy. I am happy with the sound and operation of this unit. The remote control that Marantz includes can be used for additional components if you so choose. If you have an important CD collection and are not stuck with just downloadable media, this high end CD player is an excellent choice.
Pros: Single disk player (less mechanical parts which can lead to problems in the future), good remote, quality components, good headphone jack amplification, The Marantz name
Cons: None thus far
It's been almost three weeks since I received my new CD6005. Not so light, but it is not a brick. Nice looking front fascia with simple and intuitive controls. I bought it primarily for it's headphone amplifier which, according to the manufacturer's literature, is a dedicated fully discrete one. One specification that popped out to my attention was the high speed, Schottky Barrier Diodes in the power supply section. These diodes are commonly found on higher priced equipment, which, to me, is a measure of Marantz commitment to manufacture high quality products. This makes for a really quite power supply section .
It is still in the break-in period, along with a pair of Philips Fidelio X1 headphones, but the sound is so clear and detailed that you will swear those sounds were not there. The bass, on the other hand, is not so powerful, althogu is clean and tight. I switch back and forth between the X1's and Sennheiser HD598. There is still not so much bass.
For the moment, I will continue the break-in period. For the future, I will pair it to a Woo Audio WA6 -SE vacuum tube headphone amplifier with a Sophia Princess Mesh Plate 274B rectifier tube and matched pair 6GL7/6EM7 drive/power tubes, plus one pair of 6GL7->6DE7 Teflon tube adapters. For sure, it will be another dimension.
Pros: Crystal clear sound (mids and highs), excellent looks, good price
Cons: Not so much bass
this player is a vast improvement for the money !!!!
Purchases this to replace and old Sony. The sound is so much better. CDs have much more depth and clarity. Highly recommended.
Pros: sound quality.
Cons: none but a bit pricey.
I have been listening to this impressive CD player for the last week and can honestly say that I am absolutely floored by the musicality and the pure clean sound it delivers. I had stopped using my CD player a few years ago, instead relying on my Sonos system to stream my FLAC files to my speakers. The audiophile bug slowly bit, and first I upgraded my speakers to the sublime Goldenear Triton sevens. Then I connected my Sonos to the amplifier via the Meridian Director DAC which brought my music to a different sonic level. Next I upgraded my amp to the Yamaha A S-2000, which improved my music even more (hard to believe, but true). I was sure i was done upgrading, but I kept looking at my old 5 disc CD player that was never getting used (the sound quality was easily sub-par when compared with my Sonos via the Meridian DAC) and decided on one final upgrade - the Marantz DC 6005. I am so happy with this CD player. I was sure that it would be difficult for any CD player to match the sound from my Meridian DAC, but this Marantz player is actually a little "cleaner" and more precise. While it may lack a little of the warmth of the Meridian DAC, I do not think this is bad and prefer the slightly crisper sound from this player. Of course, using the Sonos is still much more convenient, it is so much easier finding the artists you want to listen to, in addition to being able to stream music from services like MOG. But if I really want to critically listen to music, I use this player!
Pros: Clean, clear, crisp non-fatiguing sound
Cons: My wife's a little cross that my CD's have started coming out of storage!
A stunning performance, then, and I am not surprised to see the CD6004 overtaken. But how did Marantz manage that? By retuning the parts for the power supply and audio circuitry. That's how. Well alright, the USB port at the front now handles WAV and charges iPads properly, even in standby. Oh, and the display has an extra line of text.
Even the body looks the same (with the exception of shinier buttons) and mirrors the company's more expensive separates. At the back are identical connections: a set of analogue outputs next to digital coaxial and optical sockets.
Be sure to fiddle with the player's sound mode. This turns off the display, the digital outputs, (or both) and improves sound quality. There's no stark contrast - unlike an old school bass boost - but listen for longer and you'll notice a more spacious, more subtle sound with both set to 'off'
If you play your IPod through the front USB port, i was curious to see if the Marantz CD 6005 takes the unfettered digital signal, or an analogue signal? In addition, most docks take an analogue signal from the bottom of the ipod. So, What does Marantz this CD 6005 do? It takes the digital signal.
Marantz CD6005: verdict
Marantz has played it a little safe. But you don't get this far ahead and throw everything out in the name of innovation.
When you've nailed this corner of the market, you don't need to do much else. The best has just been made better. Again.

This unit had excellent reviews as a CD player alone and in addition streams I-phone music running it through a processor to improve fidelity. It is awesome to have a CD player that supports older technology as well as new.Doubling its value to me. Way to go Marantz! [ Timothy Jan 21, 2016 ]
After researching I believe this unit will deliver the quality and features I want with a reasonable price point. [ Joseph Jan 20, 2016 ]
I picked this item based on the reviews I read and it's ability to play an iPhone or iPad via the front USB port. [ ROHAN R Jan 11, 2016 ]
Had trouble deciding whether a CD player should be multi-disk, or whether I wanted recording. Ultimately decided to opt for what most reviews indicated was the best, warmest sound. [ JAMES H Dec 30, 2015 ]
I know the brand quality [ Gary Dec 19, 2015 ]
My husband Julian actually selected this CD player. He's been viewing this amp on the Crutchfield site for some time. The plan is to configure the Marantz CD6005 to a 1961 HH Scott 299c tube amp with a pair of vintage University 315c speakers. Jules custom designed and built the speaker boxes for the 315C's. Thank you for carrying such high quality products. [ Patricia Dec 11, 2015 ]
This was highly rated as an audiophile quality single CD player and I needed something to replace my 20 plus year old Nakamichi OMS5. [ cspagano Dec 05, 2015 ]

Sorry it took me so long to answer. Well, all I can tell you is I don't use the headphone jack. I use my receiver headphone jack but, since you asked the question, I plugged my Koss Tony Bennette signature series headphones into the Marantz and have plenty of power, but they are only 38 ohm. I don't know if this helps you but, I love the Marantz and I love Crutchfield! [ KEITH Jan 15, 2015 ]
I don't know. I don't have headphones like that to try. Sorry. [ MICHAEL Jan 13, 2015 ]
I'm not so into the technical side of things, but it powers my Denon AHD-2000 fairly well. Could be a little better. They are 25ohm though. Hope that helps somewhat. [ BRANDON Jan 12, 2015 ]
Sorry, I can't help you with this one. I bought this great player for cd play only and am pretty much illiterate as far as the other features. [ KEITH Apr 09, 2014 ]
YES IT CAN, YOU WILL LOVE THE SOUND [ JAY Apr 09, 2014 ]
Yes [ DEWEY Apr 09, 2014 ]
Yes yes it does [ JAY Apr 09, 2014 ]
Good question. I will burn some flac files on a disc and try playing them and get back to you. However, I can say that it plays audio CD's flawlessly, bringing out every detail in the music. [ SANTHOSH Apr 09, 2014 ]
I do not have an answer to this question. [ DENNIS P Apr 09, 2014 ]
I'm sorry, but I don't know what flac files are. I play CDs on it, and it works very, very well. I am quite happy with it. [ EDMOND Apr 09, 2014 ]
