Audio Section

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 shielded subsection.

Precision System Clock: The CD6006 employs a precision system clock to virtually eliminate any jitter for distortion-free music that sounds like the artist intended.

Fully Discrete Headphone Amplifier: The all discrete headphone amplifier section features Marantz's HDAM-SA2 circuit with three gain settings (Low/Mid/High) for a wider range of headphones, plus independent volume control. The gold-plated 1/4" jack is compatible with audiophile and studio headphone types and adapters.

Audio EX Function: For improved analog audio output fidelity, the 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.

Gold Plated Analog & Digital Outputs: The analog audio RCA outputs, along with the digital coaxial output connector, are all gold plated to ensure optimum signal transfer with no degradation.

  • Analog RCA Outputs: The CD player also features a stereo RCA output for analog connection.
  • Optical/Coaxial Digital Outputs: For optimum compatibility with 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.

Convenience Features

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 track.
  • 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.

Auto Standby: With Auto Standby On, you can automatically set this unit to standby mode after the CD player is in stop-mode (no operation) continuously for approximately 30 minutes.

rodney  Dec 07, 2020
This unit is a component. You need an amp and speakers. I suppose, however, you could plug in headphones and listen that way. There is a separate headphone jack.

bob  Sep 10, 2020

Good question and one that I never considered. But the answer is no. I don't see and functionality on my remote that would initiate eject.
charles  Sep 14, 2020
No, the open/close button is on the unit not the remote.
william  Sep 14, 2020
No. Unfortunately, the only way to eject the CD is the button on the machine itself.

I don't see that option available.

The truth is I don't know because I haven't tried - I bought initially so that I could not only play CD's from my collection but because I could use my IPOD as well - sorry doesn't answer your question
don  Oct 18, 2019
Not directly. It has no network connection. It does have a USB input for connecting to various iPhones/iPods, which may allow you to play via that; as I don't have an iPhone I cannot confirm.
michael  Oct 18, 2019
This machine plays music on CDs and USB thumb drives. It does not connect to the internet.

Sorry can't answer that but can tell you that that I am really happy with the performance of the unit overall. Is sounds almost as good as my Nak MB 20 did. I the feature of using the excellent d-a converter of the player through the USB port. CD quality sound from an I touch.
wendell  Aug 30, 2019
Mine does play CD/SACD.
james  Aug 30, 2019
Yes, the CD6006 will play hybrid SACDs! I have Dark Side of the Moon on hybrid SACD and it plays on the CD6006. SACDs will not play on the CD6006.
steven  Aug 30, 2019
Sorry, none of the classical music I like to listen to has been released on SACDs. General research indicates that most CD players will play them, but this is not a definitive answer for you.
anne  Aug 29, 2019
Maranzt CD6006 will play a CD/SACD combo disc. However it cannot play a pure SACD disc.
angel c  Aug 29, 2019
This is probably not that helpful but there are a few of my older SACDs that it will not play and several that it will.
carl  Aug 29, 2019
Sorry, can't give you a definitive answer as all my cds are just your typical type. Wish I could have been more helpful..... The 6006 has been an EXCELLENT rock solid machine. I'm very happy and pleased with it. It is heavy device weigh wise.

.I use my CD player with a Sony receiver and it worked perfectly I think you do not going to have problems with your receiver.
roberto  Dec 31, 2018
Yes. Digital Optical or Digital Coaxial, or Analog (red/white). But I suggest you do more research if you dont understand the differences among them before dropping $500 for a player that can only play CDs and nothing else.
shouchien  Dec 31, 2018
On the back of the Marantz you have those gold-plated stereo analog RCA outputs to the left. You would go from that into one of the Analog Audio inputs on the back of the Denon (they are pre-labeled CBL/SAT and AUX, but we can use them for whatever since they are assignable

No. Connect to an amp, choice of connections, I used the optical output.Enter

Yes, the marantz can be used as a cd transport ,(the next text is taken from the Marantz manual) 2. DIGITAL AUDIO OUT connectors (COAXIAL/OPTICAL) Used to connect an AV receiver or D/A converter that has a digital input connectors. (v p. 19)

Absolutely, I have mine connected to the optical input or you can use the coaxial input. I believe the digital optical input is better sound quality however. Hope this helps.
michael  Jun 25, 2017
Has anyone tested a 24/96 .wav file from USB to verify that it plays back, and that it sounds good? I'm getting conflicting information about whether the 6006 even supports playback of high def files. Thanks!
robert  Apr 01, 2017

Hey Robert!! First, let me say that I love the Marantz!!! Second, YES! I was pleasantly surprised when I stuck a USB memory stick into it from my studio, and it PLAYED IT!! However, the file was an m4a, recirded at 48/24, not a .wav. file. So I don't know it that will help you any. But I didn't expect it to play a 24 KHz ANYTHING, and yet it happily played the 24 KHz, 24 bit M4a. I have yet to try a .wav.
ed  Apr 02, 2017
Robert - I have a 6006, but haven't tested that yet. My understanding of the 6006 is that it does support HD - but like you, I'll believe it when I've heard it.
maxwell  Apr 02, 2017
I have not used the usb yet as I only play cd's but the usb does support wav files Playing back music stored on a USB memory device. Only USB memory devices conforming to mass storage class standards can be played on this unit. . This unit is compatible with USB memory devices in "FAT16" or "FAT32" format. . This unit can play back the following files. . WMA . MP3 . WAV . AAC The best thing you can do is get the pdf manual for the 6006 player at the Marantz website. I can tell you that I have had the 6005 player for over 3 years with absolutely no problems, and when I learned Marantz came out with a new 6006 player I had to get it and it is fantastic.

james  Mar 26, 2017
Just black, you don't get a choice when you check out.

The CD6006 might be available in silver for the U.K. market but I have only seen it available in black for the U.S. market.
