Teaming the award winning Marantz PM6004 amplifier, CD6004 CD player and Q Acoustics 2020i bookshelf speakers, this is a great, and great value, separates system.1 x MARANTZ CD6004 CD PLAYER
The Marantz CD6004 is a smart, robust CD/MP3 player, using high grade components to ensure stunning detail and clarity from your CDs and digitally stored music, including your iPod.
It features a Cirrus Logic (CS4398) digital to analogue converter, analogue stereo output, coaxial and optical digital output and support for CD-Text. The CD 6004 will also play MP3, Windows Media Audio (WMA) and AAC (iTunes) files either from CD-R/RW discs created on a computer or from compatible USB memory sticks, flash drives or portable MP3 Players. You can also connect an iPod via the USB socket and enjoy digital transfer of your favourite portable music.
It's predecessor, the CD6003, was already a class leader, and Marantz have managed to improve on it via several upgrades. It has a front USB port which will now charge your iPod or iPhone as well as playing them. Thanks to the upgraded power supply and only choosing customised audio components, there is no loss of sound quality as often happens in inferior products due to the power needed to charge the iPod. With a new amplifier and digital to analogue converter (DAC), the new CD6004 ensures a pure audio signal path to get the most from your music. Further improvements include centralising the new, improved CD mechanism and the addition of a solid metal bottom plate, thus eliminating vibration.
These improvements mean the CD6004 delivers an even clearer, more spacious presentation than it's predecessor for an exciting sound that adds a touch of class to any living room.
For perfect sonic harmony from your CD collection, combine it with the PM6004 Stereo Integrated Amplifier

The Marantz PM6004 is What Hifi Magazine's Stereo amplifier Product of the Year 2011 in it's class (up to £400). Building on the success of the 5 star PM6003, the PM6004 delivers a dynamic, detailed integrated stereo amplifier. "A big step-up from the older 6003 version, the PM6004 is very tough – if not impossible – to fault at this price" (What Hifi Magazine). 1 x Q ACOUSTICS 2020i SPEAKERS (PAIR)
The superb PM6004 has built on the superior technology of the PM6003, along with the generous specifications - 2 x 45 watts of amplification, 6 gold plated inputs including a turntable input, 2 independently switchable speaker outputs and high grade components for a tight, detailed and hugely enjoyable performance.
Following a thorough overhaul of the PM6003, the PM6004 now features exclusively discreet components, having replaced the integrated circuits, resulting in a sound that's even more refined and detailed.
With a sturdy chassis, solid metal front panel and gold plated terminals, the PM6004 is another fine example of the high standards and quality that Marantz incorporate into every design. A low impedance toroidal power transformer and customized audio components able to handle higher currents with greater control mean the PM6004 delivers an open, full and detailed soundstage that will do justice to any genre of music.
For a high quality, class-leading amplifier that doesn't cost the Earth, look no further than the PM6004.
The PM6004 is flexible enough to work well with other manufacturer's products, but it is perfectly matched to complement the Marantz CD6004 CD Player, also available from Superfi.
Based on the award winning 2020 speakers, the Q-Acoustics 2020is (the i stands for improved) are medium sized bookshelf/standmount speakers which deliver a full bass and clean top end making them a very attractive choice. The flexible 2020is are comfortable with any music genre and suitable for use with most amplifiers, in both hifi and home cinema set-ups.
Their two way, bass-reflex configuration allows the 2020is to deliver a sound which is both impressively detailed and weighty. This is largely due to the advanced driver technology. Improvements over the 2020 speakers include a new multi-layer cone tweeter with 'super-decoupling' from the speaker's baffle. There's also a new carbon fibre and ceramic-coated paper woofer, resulting in incredibly low levels of distortion for a smooth, open sound. The revised crossover ensures a spacious, detailed soundstage, with a clean top-end and impressive bass performance.
They also feature an innovative connection system. Instead of terminals protruding from the rear of the speaker in the conventional manner, the 2020is' terminals are located in a recessed panel on the bottom of the speaker. This means the speakers can be mounted flat up to a wall using the separately available wall bracket
which also gives tilt and turn movement (see accessories tab above).
Available in a choice of striking finishes, the Q-Acoustics 2020i speakers will look and sound exceptional as part of your home cinema or hifi system.Back to Top
