The Marantz NA7004 is a completely different type of digital music player that connects to your home network and reportedly improves the audio performance of music vs. standard players from virtually every source - including CDs, portable music players, iPhones

Users can even enjoy better sounding music from Bluetooth-enabled devices wirelessly, using the optional Marantz RX101 module.
