Hello all. New to the forums, and new to higher quality home theater equipment.
I have purchased a Marantz SR6008 receiver to replace my Sony DG820. I will be mating it to a pair of MartinLogan Electromotion ESL speakers, which are replacing some 20 year old Yamahas.
I was looking at the matching Marantz CD player and Blu-Ray player. I was told that the UD5007 bluray player had the same audio qualities as the CD5004. Thus, I ordered the bluray player to perform double-duty.
After reading further (after my purchase), I see the CD5004 has the HDAM circuitry. The UD5007 bluray player does not. The SR6008 receiver DOES have HDAM.
So my question is, do I need HDAM in both units to get the best CD sound, or will the bluray player be ok, since the receiver has HDAM?
Please be gentle, I'm a novice with the "real" audiophile stuff.
