Marantz NA6005 Audio PlayerOn the heels of the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in January, Marantz announced their newest mid-price range audio player. Released in February, this audio player supports AirPlay and DLNA, as well as BlueTooth technology. Connectable via WiFi or Ethernet, the Marantz NA6005 Network Audio Player supports hi-res audio playback, including 24/192 FLAC/WAV files and DSD. Additionally, it has a high quality headphone amplifier and DAC. Dual diversity antennas feature internal individual wave guides along with a powerful RF section equipped with dual core 300 MHz DSP processors. These help to ensure solid, stable streaming and decoding no matter where you live.

With all the music streaming options out there, the Marantz NA6005 Network Audio Player has online casino you covered. Internet radio, Apple AirPlay, and Spotify are all built in to the player. The NA6005 is also DLNA 1.5 certified for streaming sound content from your home computer; it works with Apples and PCs, or either type of laptop.

For you audiophiles out there, the NA6005 features multiple individual circuit cards to prevent mutual interference instead of having just 1 large circuit board, and the chassis features dual layer construction.

One of my favorite features is the smart device standby recharging system. If your phone is connected to the Marantz NA6005 Network Audio Player for streaming purposes, the player will automatically charge it, even when it is in standby mode. Once charged, the audio player goes into a low power consumption mode that pulls less than half a watt. The audio player comes with a remote that is compatible with a number of other Marantz products including amplifiers and disc players, though I would likely recommend a more broadly compatible remote for your entire system. Alternatively, or in addition to the remote, you can download the free Marantz Hi-Fi Remote App that will give you even more access to music stations, podcasts, and more.

Bottom line: For $650, this is a great audio player to add to your home theater.
