"As a celebrated What Hi-Fi Sound and Vision? 2009 award winner, the CD6003 offers everything a dedicated music lover desires: wide dynamic range, clear detail reproduction, and excellent staging. Vibration is almost eliminated thanks to the additional metal bottom-plate and centralised location of the CD mechanism. The USB input features an iPod-digital connection. The stable, oversized power supply feeds the digital and analogue circuitry of the player, where the high-quality CS4398 converts digital signals into analogue, which is then ‘pushed’ to the gold plated cinch outputs by Marantz’s own small signal amplifier, the HDAM-SA2. Altogether the CD6003 is a match made in heaven for the music lover who wants nothing but the best performance at an attractive price."
