Marantz HD-CD1 CD Player

The latest addition to the new Marantz MusicLink series is the HD-CD1, a high-quality CD player in the same compact form as the HD-AMP1 amplifier, for which it is the perfect match. Combining more than 30 years of Marantz expertise in compact disc playback with the latest developments in digital audio technology, it’s ideal for use as a CD transport when used with the HD-AMP1, or as a CD player in any situation where a compact form-factor is required without any compromise on sound quality. Small it may be, but it makes use of state-of-the-art Marantz technology carried over from our Award-winning CD players, including a high-resolution 192kHz/24-bit digital-to-analogue converter from Cirrus Logic, a high-accuracy system clock, and the famous Marantz HDAM-SA2 amplifier modules, as found in our flagship Reference Series CD players and amplifiers. Selected components are also used throughout the audio signal path, for the very best reproduction of your music. A centralised CD mechanism, able to play MP3, WMA and AAC files as well as standard CDs, is also used for ultra-accurate disc-reading and, along with its analogue audio outputs, optical and coaxial digital connections are provided, allowing the HD-CD1 to be connected directly to the HD-AMP1’s ultra-high-quality digital-to-analogue conversion. The HD-CD1 also features the stylish MusicLink design, with a solid aluminium front panel, double-layer chassis for vibration isolation, and retro-style side panels, and also includes a high-quality integral headphone amplifier with adjustable gain to drive high-end headphones for personal listening and comes complete with a remote control for all its functions, also able to ‘drive’ a complete system of HD-CD1 and HD-AMP1. It’s a superb Marantz CD player – in miniature!

Marantz HDAM for superb audio performance
Compact the HD-CD1 may be, but at its heart is all the technology that’s made Marantz a leader in top-quality CD playback. And central to that is the use of the Marantz-designed HDAM Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Modules: in place of the all-in-one ‘chip amplifiers’ used elsewhere, these miniature amplifiers are built from separate, optimised components for the very best sound quality, and are found in Marantz products all the way up to the Reference series players and amplifiers. In the HD-CD1 the latest-generation HDAM-SA2 version of this technology is used, to provide a wide dynamic range and wide frequency response with lowest distortion – in other words, to get you closer to the music. HDAM technology is also used in the headphone section, which has its own dedicated amplification.

Reference-quality digital-to-analogue conversion
Central to the sound quality of the HD-CD1 is a high-quality CD transport mechanism, designed for ultra-accurate disc-reading, and this sends data to the player’s high-resolution digital-to-analogue converter, which is the same Cirrus Logic CS4398 device found in top-flight digital hardware. This is used together with a crystal oscillator master clock designed for ultra-low phase noise, and a low impedance capacitor, also designed for low noise, ensuring digital data is converted into an analogue sound with lifelike dynamics and timbre, breathtaking presence and sheer musicality.

Dedicated headphone amplifier with volume control and adjustable gain
Whether you want to use the HD-CD1 on your desk for full-time headphone listening, or just occasionally want to connect a pair of ‘phones for a private music session, the dedicated headphone section in the player will delight. To make the most of personal listening, it has its own volume control and a dedicated HDAM-SA2 amplifier, complete with adjustable gain setting – low, medium and high – to enable it to drive even highly-demanding audiophile headphones.

Analogue and digital outputs
As well as its own high-quality analogue outputs, enabling it to be used with any amplifier including the matching HD-AMP1, the HD-CD1 has both optical and coaxial digital outputs, meaning it can be used as a CD transport straight into the digital input on the HD-AMP1 and allowing it to be used with the superb ESS Sabre DAC built into the amplifier. Like the analogue outputs, the coaxial digital connection uses a high-quality gold-plated RCA socket, and a digital cable is supplied with the player.

High-current power supply and vibration-suppressing chassis
Noise is the enemy of great sound, and the HD-CD1 has extensive measures to suppress both electrical and mechanical interference. A high-current power supply with high-capacity storage capacitors is used to ensure the player is able to deliver the dynamics of music, along with high-speed Schottky Barrier Diodes. The player also has auto-standby and very low power consumption when in standby mode. The HD-CD1 is built on a double layer base-plate for rigidity and vibration suppression, aided by the use of compliant feet, a solid aluminium fascia and a rigid top-plate, and is finished with retro-style side-cheeks for that ‘classic Marantz’ look, whether in Silver Gold or Black.

System remote control
The remote control handset supplied with the HD-CD1 controls all the functions of player, and can also ‘drive’ the matching HD-AMP1, for simple system integration and convenience.

Up to 90 Day Returns!

Returns are easy and flexible. We will accept returned goods up to 90 days from purchase with the following restrictions as summarised below. For more details please read our Terms & Conditions of Sale, a link is shown at the bottom of the home page.

Changing your Mind
It's OK to change your mind but please be aware that all goods must be returned in as new, unused and re-saleable condition. This means that all packaging must be intact, all accessories are complete in their original wrappers and any free items are also returned with the goods. Essentially the product must be returned in the same condition as you would expect to receive a new unit in. In all cases the cost of returning the goods will be the customer's responsibility. All faulty items must be returned complete and will be repaired under the manufacturer's warranty.

 

How we Handle Returns
Depending on how long you have had the goods there are different options availble to you. In the case of faulty items, if the item fails due to a manufacturing fault between 1 and 28 days from delivery we will exchange it for a brand new one of the same model. Any items which are found faulty after 28 days from delivery will be repaired under the manufacturers warranty. For returns where you have changed your mind, please find our policy below:

Returns

Exchange
This is were you return your item and we will exchange it for another item of equal or higher value. If the item you wish to change to is of higher value you only pay the difference. If the item is of a lower value we will issue you with a credit note for the difference which you can spend with us at a later date.

Credit Note
This is where you return your item and we issue you with a credit note which you can use against another purchase with us.

Refund
This is where you return your item and we issue a refund back to the same method you paid with. e.g. the same credit card. This is not available after 14 days, only exchange or credit note is available after 14 days.

25% Restocking Fee
If your item is returned to us between 29 and 90 days from delivery we will charge a restocking fee of 25% of the price you paid for the item initially. This will be deducted from the value of the exchange or credit note which is issued to you. This is because  technology in the AV marketplace moves fast, and as a result the value of items decrease very quickly.

Please note we do not accept returns after 90 days, except for repairs under warranty.

To complete your order please call us on 0800 634 4484
9am to 6pm Mon-Fri, 9am to 5.30pm Sat.

Thank you!
