A match made in heaven that you'll never want to stop listening to.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.

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 MONITOR AUDIO BRONZE BX2 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.
The Monitor Audio Bronze BX2 are award winning bookshelf speakers which stand out in their class and offer looks and performance far beyond their price. They are equally at home handling both music and movies, in a stereo set-up or as an integral part of your home cinema. The clever design and front bass port of the BX2 allow easy positioning in your listening room, without the loss in performance you get with many speakers.
The compact size of the Monitor Audio BX2 belies their quality - they deliver a big sound comparable to much larger speakers. The BX-2 speakers are available in 4 stylish finishes and supplied with magnetic removable grills - although we suggest leaving the grills off so you can show the beautifully designed cones and impress everyone who sees them.
Lots of intelligent construction has gone into the MA B-X2 speakers. Both the 165mm bass/mid-range driver and the 25mm tweeter utilise cones made from C-CAM (Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium), a material originally developed for jet engine components by the aerospace industry. This extremely rigid material ensures audible consistency and a cohesive soundstage, and eliminates distortion. The bass/mid-range driver has a single bolt-through design rather than being fixed to the front baffle. This stops it transmitting vibration and reduces sound colouration. The Monitor Audio 'Hive II' port technology allows for faster air dispersal and less turbulence.
All these features result in an incredibly detailed and dynamic musical expression. Fast, powerful bass; clean, clear mid-range; and sweet, refined treble are all features of the BX2. Check out the 'Expert Reviews' tab on this page to see what the experts say.
With stylish design, innovative features and great music performance the Monitor Audio Bronze BX2 are gorgeous bookshelf speakers which produce an awesome sound.Back to Top
