Marantz_PM6004_integrated_amplifier.jpgThe PM6004 adds control options that are designed for integration with today's music systems. As with Marantz' top-of-the-line Reference Series amplifiers, it features a Torroidal transformer that anchors an all-new power supply feeding a Current Feedback Amplifier. Five line inputs and two line outputs ensure connectivity with all today's musical sources. Notably, to meet the growing demand of consumers who enjoy the vinyl LP experience, it also features an all-discrete moving magnet phono stage for compatibly turntables.

Marantz_CD6004_CD_Player.jpgThe CD6004 Compact Disc Player is a solution for enjoying musical performance from CDs, as well as iTunes music and other digital sources. The CD6004 features a front panel USB input, which allows users to enjoy all their favorite digital music tracks - a first for a Marantz unit in this price range.

Among the technologies included are Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Modules (HDAM's), a Marantz proprietary technology also derived from the company's flagship Reference Series. The utilization of HDAM technology allows the CD6004 to reproduce music with a balance of bass, midrange and treble for a digital listening experience that could allegedly be mistaken for "analog." Other features in the CD6004 include Flasher Input, premium (wide pitch) L/R output jacks, as well as optical and coaxial digital outputs. Additional Marantz touches include a double layered bottom plate designed to create vibration free listening and a precision clock system. The CD6004 also features two iPod operation modes.

The PM6004 has a price of $599.99 and the CD6004 has one of $499.99.
