Upgrade Your Two-Channel Rig With This Networked Hi-Fi Audio Player
You have amassed quite a CD collection over the years. Unfortunately, those 500 CDs do take up a bit of space. And finding the one you want is sometimes a challenge unless you have them all exquisitely organized. While you enjoy the full uncompressed sound quality of CDs, you will admit that the convenience of calling up almost any track on Spotify or Apple Music and streaming it to a wireless speaker is just easier — even if it’s not the last word in audio quality.
Perhaps you are wondering if there is a way to have the convenience of streaming and digital files along with the pleasure of playing that live concert or jazz CD that is difficult to find on Spotify. And you are picky about audio quality, not wanting to sacrifice the aural experience for convenience.
Well, you are in luck. There are such products that combine the convenience of digital sources with superb sound quality. One such product comes from Marantz, a storied audio brand that is perhaps best known these days for their exemplary AV receivers, which we recommend for home theater installations. But Marantz has also continued to make audiophile-grade two-channel stereo components, from affordable lines to the Reference line that competes with the best in high-end audio.
One of Marantz’s best all-around products is the ND8006 music player. If you need a complete digital upgrade to your two-channel audio rig in Portland, this unit does it all. Read on to learn more.
