I was about to get a CD5001 and I saw severals of you guys saying they were disappointed with it. I take credit of what you're saying as I was about to replace my Micromega Stage 1 with this Marantz, and I assume I would have quite disappointed too.
Now I'm still interested in the CD6002 as I love Marantz sound.
Since I was near to get a CD6000 sometime ago, I'm still in search of a good player from this brand.
Does anybody could have auditionned the 6002 ?
Because I hope that the difference between the 5001 and 6002 is bigger than the only (useless ?...) MP3/WMA support feature we get on the 6002...
I've already saw these various additional different features in the Comparative at the end of the 2008 catalog :
Customized Components (yeah well...)
Symmetric circuit layout (I thought it was on both, it seems not)
Separated rectifier circuit for analogue and digital circuitry (now that can be interesting)
and a stronger chassis
and of course, the DAC.
So any experience with it ?
edit : oh yes, does anybody can advise me another nice cd player in the same range of price and quality, just in case ?
Something to fit with a Nad amp and Celestion 2000 speakers (wonderful band-twearters mids !).
