    Recently bought a Marantz CD 6000SE KI Signature player for the 2nd system,
    Loved the CD63 KI back in the day with my Pioneer A400 and Mission 760s, fancied a CD player again so picked a minty CD6000 OSE KI up here on AOS.

    Stonkingly great sound quality, responds really well to good cables.

    Highly recommended.

    Marantz seems to get a shitty name .

    Not sure why, since they pretty much invented CDP along with Phillips .

    Sure Sonny had other thoughts......but that's history.

    I've had (have) Marantz CD63 KI, CD 6000SE KI and SA7001 KI over the last 20 odd years, so yes, I do rather like Ken Ishiwata players. CD63 KI still my favourite I think.

    I've got a minty CD67SE and a tidy CD54 stashed away. Prefer the Sony or Technics players though.

    I've never heard the bass laden track " U2 - Love is blindness " portrayed with such aplomb.

    Folk forget that Phillips acquired Marantz a donkey's age ago, so Marantz were also involved at the bleeding edge of things.

    Phillips bought Marantz in 1980 so all the Marantz CD players were tweaked Phillips players.
