Analog perfection

Marantz has been using HDAM modules for analog signal processing for many years. These HDAM modules are discretely built output buffers that replace the commonly used but often less performing opamps. HDAM modules offer a higher slew-rate and a better signal-to-noise ratio than conventional opamps. By applying one HDAM module per channel, Marantz creates a symmetrical line stage with ultra-low noise and a high channel separation.

With these modules Marantz CD players deliver a delicate and recognizable sound with which these modules are most popular in the Hi-Fi community for many years. Marantz uses separate HDAM modules for the line output stage and for the headphone amplifier so you can listen to your favorite music albums through your headphones with detail and openness rarely heard before. Difficult to control headphones? Thanks to HDAM this is no challenge for this Marantz CD6007.

Audiophile DAC

This CD6007 is equipped with a high quality AK4490 DAC by AKM. This DAC is widely used in high end digital sources and DACs. Combined with the highly acclaimed HDAM SA2 modules, this player delivers a most detailed music reproduction with liveliness and finesse. The player is equipped with selectable filters to better tune the sound to your personal taste. Finally, Marantz has improved the build quality of this CD player a few notches. The double-layered base plate and solid feet ensure even better sound quality.
