Our take on the Marantz ND8006

Marantz calls it "the complete digital music source player." The first-of-its-kind ND8006 is basically four components in one. It's a network player, a CD player, and a high-performance DAC in one low-profile chassis. Plus it has variable RCA outputs, so you can also use it as a preamp.

High-end digital audio with more music choices

Marantz calls it "the complete digital music source player." The first-of-its-kind ND8006 is basically four components in one. It's a network player, a CD player, and a high-performance DAC in one low-profile chassis. Plus it has variable RCA outputs, so you can also use it as a preamp.

This extra-versatile component delivers superior Marantz sound quality from a huge variety of music sources, from shiny discs to streaming music to high-resolution audio files from your computer.

Built for solid performance

Build quality is just what we expect from Marantz: rock-solid, with a double-layered chassis, toroidal transformer, and rigid feet for high-fidelity, low-distortion sound. The ND8006's output stage uses Marantz's HDAMs (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Modules) to pass highly accurate, detailed sound to your amp or receiver.

The ND8006 has a high-quality headphone amplifier that incorporates a Marantz HDAM-SA2 amplifier for first-rate private listening sessions with a range of headphone types.

Audio sources galore

The ND8006 lets you enjoy clear, detailed playback of CDs and better-than-CD-quality high-resolution audio formats. Its advanced digital-to-analog converter works with all kinds of digital audio sources — from USB thumb drives to conventional audio components with optical or coaxial digital outputs — bringing out detail and depth for a more immersive listening experience. Its USB DAC function supports high-quality playback from a computer.

Nothing beats the convenience of streaming music. Built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Apple AirPlay, and HEOS ensure you won't run out of options.

Streamline your music with HEOS

Built-in HEOS technology lets you access all of your music — from your personal library, internet radio, and popular streaming services like Pandora®, Spotify®, and TIDAL.

The ND8006 can be easily integrated into a wireless multi-room audio system. Stream music to HEOS wireless speakers and components in different rooms, and control each room's speakers independently with the free HEOS app. The app lets you control playback, browse music sources, and select which rooms you want to use. Play the same music throughout your home, or listen to something different in each room.

Great sound, small button.

Crutchfield customer from Orange, CA on 1/20/2019

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I would give it 4.5 stars if I could. I like Marantz's approach of all-analog integrated amplifiers, leaving the digital circuitry and DAC to other components like this one. The ND8006 sound quality is exceptional -- typical of Marantz products -- and superior to other components I tested in this price range. The CD transport is solid and quiet, and the network/wi-fi/bluetooth functions are as advertised. My only criticism is the CD load function. There is no CD-load button on the remote, which is OK since you cannot load a CD remotely. However, the load button on the face of the CD player is very small and part of a 5-function "wheel" that includes the play, stop, forward and reverse functions. You need to push the correct (top) part of the wheel to open or close the CD tray. In a dimly-lit room, you simply cannot see this button. I need to turn on a light to change the CD. My design preference would be to have a separate CD load button that is larger, separate from other buttons, and easier to locate and use. However, the sound quality of this player more than makes up for this small design flaw. It's a keeper.

Pros: Exceptional sound quality. Solid CD transport. Network and streaming functions work well.

Cons: Small, hard to use CD load button.

Crutchfield customer from Boise, ID on 1/9/2019

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Huge improvement over old Sony system. I'm now hearing some greater detail in my music. There has been much more going on in the "Stop Making Sense" CD than I appreciated. I have not used the network applications yet, but the system is picking up the local HD radio signals.



Good sound, lousy app

Peter from Redding, CT on 1/7/2019

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this unit after trying and returning a Cambridge Audio Azur 851N, which sounded very harsh to me. I like the sound from this unit much better than that of the CA 851N, but I don't hear much difference between music played on this unit and the same music played through my old CD player. It may be that my ears are either too old or too uneducated to hear the difference. All I can really say is that, while I like the sound from the ND8006 and the convenience of having a network player, I don't really hear much improvement over my old CD player. Aside from the sound, I don't like the HEOS app at all. It's not very intuitive, and creating or editing a playlist isn't easy. It's also not possible to fast forward or go backwards in a song with the HEOS app. If the app is important to you, I would suggest first reading the HEOS reviews on the Apple App Store first. It would also be nice if the ND8006 had bass and treble controls. Finally, this unit has the same DAC as the Marantz NA6006, which is $500 cheaper. Marantz doesn't explain the differences between these 2 units, so part of me wonders if I paid an extra $500 just for the integrated CD player. Overall, I would give the ND8006 4 stars for its sound quality, but 2 stars for the HEOS app. Because the app is such an integral part of a network player, I've given the unit 3 stars. The good news is that apps can be improved, so I really hope that happens someday. If it does, I

Pros: Good sound. Easy set up.

Cons: Expensive. HEOS app is awful.

New to Network Players - My Initial Impression

J. from Bozeman, MT on 12/20/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Having been a traditional stereo listener throughout my life, I am new to network players. The ND8006 seemed to be most attractive to me as a starting point for a second, versatile stereo system that I wanted to employ for casual listening in the kitchen & family room area, and for exploring new music and music resources. As such, the integrated CD player made this network player especially attractive to me. I did my initial listening test through the power amp of my entry level "audiophile" system. CD: Compared to my existing systems CD player and pre-amp, the ND8006 provides a stronger bass and lower midrange, which makes the musical presentation quite a bit more punchy and immediate - a welcome change to the laid-back character of my-existing system. This however comes at the cost of losing some detail, subtleness, and realism of the musical reproduction. The soundstage has a tad more energy in the center, yet still impresses me with its 3-dimensional character and airiness, which makes up for the before mentioned shortcomings. Pairing with smart phone via AirPlay: It turns out this is the mode of operation were the ND8006 absolutely shines! It is the most convenient, easy, fun and versatile way of playing MP3s and www-streaming all kinds of music. In this mode the ND8006 impresses with a balanced, engaging, musical and pleasing sound. Quite amazing and worth the ND8006s price in my opinion. It's a keeper! I am going to get some active speakers fo

Pros: - Plays all digital resources one can think of. - Very easy to set up and operate. - Variable output allows for direct connection with power amp or active speakers. No preamp needed unless one wants to tweak the sound. - Sounds really great with smart phone and AirPlay! - Display large and bright enough to be read from 15ft. away. - Solid, sturdy enclosure and connections. - Does exactly what I wanted it for. - Price/performance ratio meets my expectations.

Cons: - Headphone output sound did not impress me. But that's not what I bought the ND8006 for.

Excellent value

Crutchfield customer from Wichita ,KS on 8/29/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sounding unit. I bought it mainly to play hi-res music from a USB flash drive on the front panel. It's a little picky about the type of flash drive you use. The manual states it will read drives formatted in Fat16 or Fat32. This is somewhat outdated. Marantz needs to move on to more recent formatting like exFat. I did finally find a USB flash drive that works. All in all, it's a wonderful player.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product makes your music sound a lot better.



Very good streamer!

Bill from Wilkes Barre, PA on 7/9/2018

Excellent streamer!! I upgraded to this from the Marantz NA8005. The positives are the network connection is more stable, and the HEOS app works better than the Marantz HiFI app. I tested this DAC against the NA8005 and my Marantz AV8805. Sound quality is very close to both, as it was not much of an improvement over the last generation NA8005. The stability though makes it worth it and that it also includes HEOS. Also the USB functions work better too, especially with DSD files! It is worth the cost!

Pros: Many different supported file formats, DSD is improved, network is improved, the HEOS app makes it easier to use.

Cons: Sound is pretty much the same as past generation NA8005, which was fantastic, so not much of an upgrade sound wise.

Crutchfield customer from Columbus, OH on 5/16/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sound quality very good but not ultra high end. Very pleasant sound and frequency range, soundstage limited between speakers in my system. Great interconnectivity and wifi Bluetooth.



Marantz ND8006

GarageRat from Flushing, NY on 5/14/2018

If you're on the fence, get off....This piece sounds great. Great DAC.... Mostly use CD and Stream. Usually "more in 1" items I stand back from but am stoked. Quality build and sound. Streaming from Spotify is amazingly good. CD's amazing. No SACD but I don't own any so no big deal. My very expensive Turntable is jealous now.

Pros: Looks, Ease of use, Build Quality, Sound, Multiple hook up options, Quality DAC, Quality CD.

Cons: None

Maranz ND8006 is the bomb!

Kevin from Wisconsin on 2/10/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

OH man, what a wonderfull piece of audio equipment. Exactly what I needed (wanted). I re-ripped all me CD's to FLAC format (If you are still using MP3's and you want high quality sound, change) on my entertainment center computer, and run them thru the high end ND8006 DAC via WIFI, bypassing the crappy computer soundcard. TV is hooked up to the ND8006 with optical cable. It all sounds so AMAZING! Such detail in the music. The bass is really coming out low and tight, way better than before. The HEOS app that runs this bad boy is so cool and easy to use - all thru my phone. Everyone that has listened to my system stands in awe. Thank you Crutchfield (Chad and Max) for the info that led me to the excellent decision. Thank you Marantz for designing exactly what the doctor ordered.

Pros: Imputs on ND8006 allow the use of high quality ND8006 DAC. WiFi allows use of DAC for all my music files and music streaming. Sounds amazing.

Cons: HEOS app - have not figured how to advance from beginning to end of song. Other than that, no cons I have run across.

Audiophile DAC + Marantz HDAM: The ND8006 is built with legendary Marantz sound quality commitment. The audiophile ESS9016 Sabre DAC, with dual crystal clocks ensures accurate handling of all digital signals (up to 32-bit/384kHz and DSD 11.2MHz). The analog circuitry uses carefully selected components, plus the famous Marantz Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Modules (HDAMs) resulting in wide dynamic range and lowest distortion. In place of the all-in-one "chip amplifiers" used in a lot of other components, these miniature amplifiers are built from separate, optimized components for the very best sound quality, and are found in Marantz products all the way up to the Reference series players and amplifiers.

Marantz Music Digital Filter (MMDF): The ND8006 features the unique Marantz Musical Digital Filtering (MMDF), inspired by their audiophile reference class technology. For Marantz, using standard digital filter solutions is not an option, as this filtering is crucial to the sound reproduction of digital input signals. As a result, they invested extensively in gaining expert knowledge, leading into highly-acclaimed Marantz Music Mastering technology used in award-winning Premium Range 10 Series products. Adapted for the ND8006 hardware design, the solution is called Marantz Musical Digital Filtering. Two selectable, digital filter characteristics cater for different tastes, and each handle even the minutest of detail with loving care in the digital audio signal, transforming new media files into the finest of high-resolution playback.

  • Filter 1: Offers a short impulse response for both pre-echo and post-echo. Suitable for large information content audio. Produces a deep sound image with clearly-defined positional relationships of the audio sources.
  • Filter 2: This characteristic is known as asymmetrical impulse response. The post echo is slightly longer than the pre-echo. The sound characteristics is more analog like.

Pure Sound Quality: The individual "OFF mode" setting allows unused sections of the ND8006 to be switched off to avoid any chance of interference, and to keep the audio source signal paths in use as pure as possible for further improved sound quality. The shielded toroidal transformer further minimizes internal noise, while the rigid double-layer chassis cares for optimal shielding and stability.

Discrete Headphone Amplifier: For music lovers enjoying their favorite recording directly via headphones, the ND8006 features a high-quality headphone stage with dedicated amplifier module HDAM-SA2. To work with a wider variety of headphones, the gain factor can be changed from low to mid to high. By using this, it is possible to drive low to high impedance headphone without any problem.

Fixed & Variable Analog Outputs: Alongside its conventional Fixed stereo RCA line-level output for use with an integrated amplifier like the perfectly matching PM8006 (sold separately), the ND8006 provides a separate Variable stereo RCA line-level output for connection to a dedicated power amp, allowing the Network CD Player to be used as a multi-source digital player/preamp.

Optical & Coaxial Digital Output: In addition to Fixed & Variable stereo RCA line-level outputs, the Marantz ND8006 is equipped with one optical (toslink) digital output and one coaxial (RCA) digital output.
