Marantz CD5005 Versus CD5001
I recently purchased a new Marantz 5005 cd player, to replace a Marantz 5001 which quit working. The new 5005 sounds good. However, I have been a little disappointed in the sound compared to the 5001.
There was more of a sense of air, and space around instruments played back on the 5001. Also, vocals sounded more three dimensional , and slightly better defined. The 5005, to me, sounds rather dry and less musical by comparison.
There has been no change in the associated equipment and cables, which include a Parasound P3 preamp, Parasound A23 power amp, and Polk LSi15 speakers.
Will spending more on a cd player get me more of what I liked about the 5001? I am interested in anyone's opinion about this. Thanks.
