Marantz CD6005 and PM6005

Monday, 20 January 2014 |



David Price of H-Fi Choice Magazine did a 4-page in-depth review of the Marantz CD6005 and PM6005 as featured on the front cover of the latest issue of the magazine. Both units are awarded with 5 STARS and the Hi-Fi Choice RECOMMENDED logo.

HI-FI CHOICE SAID;
"They simply don't sound like your average, cheap, screechy budget hi-fi separates. Indeed, they're so good that you can put them through some pretty accomplished high-end speakers and they still won't give the game away."


"…the new Marantz CD6005 sounds very nice indeed. Treble is crisp and spacious….while the midband is smooth and open with a good sense of image placement. Bass does its own thing happily, sounding surprisingly strong and tuneful…and the overall result is a very enjoyable rendition of REM's 'Maps and Legends'." 
PM6005
"…you'll not fail to like the big-hearted nature of this integrated. It seems to bounce along with a smile, determined to enjoy whatever you play through it, without a care in the world."

CONCLUSION
…I'll be surprised if you aren't beguiled by the sound that this recently tweaked dynamic duo can make."

VERDICT – CD6005
"Excellent budget CD player, you can't ask for more" 

VERDICT – PM6005
"Strong budget amplifier with surprisingly fine sound"
