Hi,
for owners of either these two brands, i was wondering if the volume control on the remote control will work alone without the need to connect to an AVR?
just wanted to know because i want a cd player with volume control.

Thank you.

Only some models have the digital volume control. Usually the higher end ones.
Personally I prefer the analog (manual) volume, the digital one affects the sound quality.

hi guys, may i kindly enquire from all marantz cdp owners, when you set the player to shuffle/random play using the usb input, does the unit would eventually repeat back some of the tracks in the selected folder and will continue playing without stopping?

or would the player complete 1 cycle of play of the selected folder without repeating any the songs/tracks?

many thx for your reply as i'm considering getting a marantz cdp...wink.gif

The CD players don't have USB inputs. That's found much later, in some DVD, BR players...

Actually, the Marantz CD6004 does have a USB input but it only plays .mp3 and .wma files. I think some of the NAD CD players also have USB inputs with similar limitations.

I agree, I didn't mention those because there are lossy formats.
In my opinion, an universal player (like Oppo) or SACD/CD player (like Marantz SA8004) are needed as minimum for USB playback.

I imagine Marantz doesn´t want their basic CD players competing with their higher priced networking units and/or SACD players. wink.gif
