Marantz HDAM + HDAM SA2 Technology: Ordinary CD players employ conventional
IC-based op-amps in the D/A and analog output sections, but the CD6006 is
equipped with Marantz exclusive HDAM & HDAM SA2 technology, which uses discrete circuit
elements and not ICs. HDAM technology provides wide dynamic range and wide
frequency response along with lowest distortion for the utmost musical fidelity
High Current Power Supply: For the most stable power to the various
circuit blocks, the power supply employs high speed, high current Shottky
Barrier Diodes in the AC-DC conversion circuit, and the power supply is fitted
with high current storage capacitors for the most stable DC supply to the
mechanical and electrical sections.
Reference Quality D/A Conversion: The CD6006 features high resolution
D/A conversion and is equipped with the reference class CS4398 D/A converter,
which provides up to 192kHz/24-bit resolution for optimum fidelity with high
resolution audio file types. To prevent interference with the critical analog
audio output circuitry, the digital audio circuit block is housed in its own

Audio EX function lets you disable the front-panel fluorescent display, to
minimize noise artifacts. You can also disable the digital audio outputs when
listening via analog audio for even greater noise reduction.

digital audio amplifiers and decoders the CD6006 is equipped with both
optical and coaxial digital audio outputs (supports 2ch PCM only).
Rigid Chassis Design: The CD6006 CD player's front-panel is
constructed from aluminum and glass-reinforced resin, which resists harmful
resonances that can harm sonic quality. The panel is finished in a soft black
tone, and features a graceful curvature that complements any home décor. The CD
player also employs a double layered bottom plate to prevent unwanted resonance
that could lead to distortion.
Two-Line Florescent Display: For optimum visual clarity, the CD6006
features a deluxe two-line fluorescent display that features alphanumeric
characters (up to 16) for song/artist information from CD-Text discs and
MP3/WMA/AAC music tracks. The display is dimmable.
Remote Control: The supplied IR remote control features an easy to use
ergonomic design, and can control the CD6006 as well as control the matching
PM6006 integrated stereo amplifier (sold separately). The remote can also be
used to control your USB-connected iPod or iPhone. The CD player also includes a
Remote Input/Output and Flasher Input.
- Remote Input/Output: Two RCA jacks
(1 In/1 Out) are provided for connecting the player and another Marantz
A/V component for system remote control purposes. The accompanying switch allows
you to select the remote control mode you desire: External (when the player is
connected to another component's remote control jacks) or Internal (when the
player is used as a standalone component).
- Flasher In: This 3.5mm minijack input is used to control this unit
using an optional keypad (sold separately) from another room of your house.
Playback Functions: The Marantz CD player offers basic
playback functions like Play/Pause, Stop, Fast Forward/Rewind, and
Random/Repeat. It also has variety of unique playback functions like Direct
Search, Program Play, Quick Replay, Time Player, and A-B Repeat.
- Direct Search: You can use the numeric keypad on the remote control to select a specific music
- Program Play: You can arrange and play tracks on a disc in a
specific sequence. Up to 25 tracks can be programmed. As you are selecting
tracks, the display will show the number of tracks in the program, and the total
playing time of the programmed tracks. During program play, you can repeat the
entire list of programmed tracks, or play them in random order.
- Quick Replay: During Quick Replay, the music track or file
rewinds the set amount of time (5-60 seconds), and then resumes playing from
the rewind point.
- A-B Repeat: You can specify the section within a track that you
want to hear, and play it back repeatedly.
- Timer Play: When this CD player is connected to a commercially
available external audio timer (sold separately), the unit's power is switched
on and media playback starts at the specified time.
