Launched in 2016, the CD6006 and PM6006 won not just What Hi-Fi? five-star accolades, but also the EISA 2016-17 Award for Best European Stereo System, recognising their exceptionally high standards of performance and spectacular value for money. For these UK Editions the audio tuning team has revisited these two models, improving components throughout to deliver even better sound, and designing a new Special UK Edition logo incorporating the Union Flag to set them apart from the standard models.
Both the CD6006 and PM6006 were originally designed with selected audio components, but for the UK Edition models further enhancements have been made in sound-critical areas, giving the new models even more performance, and bringing the listener even closer to their favourite music by enhancing both dynamic ability and soundstage focus.
A high-quality CS4398 DAC is used while an oversized power supply is used, with separate outputs for both the digital and analogue sections of the player. In the UK Edition this has been enhanced with the use of special ELNA power supply capacitors – as ever, chosen by the Marantz team after extensive listening tests. As well as standard CDs, the CD6006 UK Edition can play WAV, MP3, AAC and WMA files from USB storage, and has a front-panel USB port for the connection of iOS devices such as iPhone and iPods. The player uses the famous Marantz HDAMs (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Modules) in its analogue output stage, for signal purity, and also has an HDAM-powered headphone output with its own gain control.

Marantz HDAM Technology
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. Over the years Marantz developed different types of the HDAM to improve quality and to fit to the special requirements of a product category like CD or amplifier.
The audio power supply employs high speed, high current Shottky Barrier Diodes and high current storage capacitors.
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 192 kHz/24 bit resolution for optimum fidelity with high resolution audio file types.
High slew rate op-amp + HDAM-SA2 headphone amplifier with headphone amp gain setting (Low/Mid/High)
The headphone amplifier section features our HDAM-SA2 circuit with three gain settings (Low/Mid/High) for a wider range of headphones.
Plays USB audio sources
The CD6006 can play back MP3, WMA, WAV and AAC files from a connected USB storage device. It is also specifically “Made for iPod/iPhone”, to directly play back your iDevice music through the CD Player’s high quality D/A converters.
