Marantz vs NAD single disc CD player Tags: High-End Audio CD-Rom Audio Last response: November 10, 2011 1:18 AM in Home Audio Share bigsteff_dc November 1, 2011 12:49:16 AM I need to buy a new cd player. I've decided on either the NAD 515BEE or the Marantz CD-5004. The Marantz is $50 more, and has slightly better specs. Any suggestion, comments, recommendation? Thanks More about : marantz nad single disc player musical marv November 1, 2011 1:28:09 AM Buy NAD better quality control and more musical sounding. NAD has been a around for a long time in the audio field.I hear this NAD player and it sounded very good. Marantz is mediocre . stillerfan15 November 1, 2011 11:09:15 PM Agreed with Marv. I've always had good experiences with the NAD equipment I have owned and it will save you $50.

NAD is a great value. stillerfan15 November 10, 2011 1:18:06 AM A happy ending. I now own a Sony DVD player and it works and sounds fine. Digital is digital after all so the sound won't change. But the NADs quality should be much better than the Marantz. Who makes them these days? Dave? Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumDoes sound quality mean high cost?
