Marantz has introduced the CD 60 high-performance CD player that incorporates modern materials that pairs elegantly with existing Marantz amplifiers or as a stand-alone addition to any Hi-Fi system. The CD 60 is designed to mate to the newly announced MODEL 40n integrated stereo amplifier.
Marantz participated in the development of the CD format, and the CD 60 has benefitted from a much-heralded legacy of engineering and refinement that includes the latest HDAM amplifier modules utilized in the analog output stage. According to Marantz, the new HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Modules) are superior in their overall response compared to off-the-shelf solutions found in other products. These modules have been further optimized for the CD 60 to flow current more accurately leading to lower distortion at high frequencies than its predecessor.
The CD 60 offers the convenience of a front-panel USB-A port, enabling playback of a vast array of digital files such as MP3, WMA, AAC and WAV, FLAC HD, ALAC, AIFF (up to 192-kHz/24bit), and DSD (up to 5.6-MHz) from a connected USB storage device.
The CD 60 features a new reference-class 24-bit D/A converter (up to 192 kHz/24-bit and DSD 5.6 MHz). Critical listeners can choose between two filter options, with Filter 1 delivering a gentle roll-off while Filter 2 provides a sharper roll-off for more precise imaging.
The CD 60 inherits the exclusive Marantz HDAM-SA2 high-performance headphone amp circuit with three gain settings (Low/Mid/High) for a perfect match with almost any headphone. The headphone amplifier can also be switched to “off” when not in use, eliminating any unwanted interference.
The Marantz CD 60 player will be available with an MSRP of $999 at authorized Marantz retailers and online at www.marantz.com in June 2022.
