The CD5005 plays CD, CD-R and CD-RW discs as well as MP3 and WMA files. And perhaps more importantly, it helps reproduce high-quality audio. That’s because it incorporates high-quality audio components such as the famous CS4392 DAC as well as the Marantz-own HDAM-SA2. It also includes customised components for sound tuning and a reliable CD transport mechanism. The Audio EX(clusive) mode further enhances sound quality by switching off functions, such as digital output and pitch control that are not in use.
Marantz developed its own discrete circuit boards to replace standard IC’s. These HDAM’s consists of discrete surface mount components with short mirror image L/R signal paths. Those devices are doing exactly the same thing as the Op-Amps, but outperform the regular IC Op-amps dramatically in terms of the Slew Rate and reduced noise level, resulting in a much more dynamic, accurate and detailed sound.
MP3 is a lossy compression algorithm is designed to greatly reduce the amount of data required to represent the audio recording and still sound like a faithful reproduction of the original uncompressed audio for most listeners. An MP3 file that is created using the setting of 128 kbit/s will result in a file that is about 11 times smaller than the CD file created from the original audio source.
To achieve the best possible sonic performance, signal paths need to be short, direct and mirror imaged. The construction of our circuitry provides improved stereo imaging by ensuring close to perfect symmetry between right and left channel layout.
