The Marantz CD6006 came yesterday. Got it hooked up and from the get go I knew that it was a quite a few steps above the Pioneer DV588-A which will be restricted to SACD, ADVD duty now. There's a lot more detail. I used only the analog hook up. Listened to my choice for reference CD duty Dire Straits On Every Street. Vocals were more forward excellent sound stage and the sustain on the floor toms that wasn't there is present and lovely to hear. I think it's better than the ADVD playback on the Pioneer. It matches the Outlaw RR2160 well. One thing I've found is I like the headphone section on the Outlaw better than the Marantz and from the reviews of the Marantz I didn't expect that. Listening to Ricky Lee Jones. Evaluation is over now time to listen. I'll post more on features as I use them.
