The Marantz CD5004 is a mid-priced CD player. In promotion, Marantz emphasizes the sound quality of the CD5004. The HDAM-SA2 analog circuits give the CD5004 authenic analog sound, even when playing compressed files like MP3s and WMAs. The Cirrus Logic CS4392 D/A (Digital to Analog) converter, a standard feature on Marantz' mid-priced CD players, makes even MP3/WMA files sound full like analog-based sources. The high-performance ELNA Silmic and Cerafine audio capacitors add detail and transparency to the CD5004's sound. The gold-plated analog output jacks ensure that when you connect the CD5004 to external speakers, its sound quality will be retained. Whether playing a CD or MP3/WMA disc, all the song information will show up with the CD5004's text/data display. The Marantz CD5004 single CD player comes with a three year warranty.
