Marantz CD 63 MK-2 KI Signature (Appreciation/Owners/Complains/Opinions welcome)
Just got a Marantz CD 63 MK-2 KI Signature for 80 pounds and its in great shape...everything is in working order and the unit has been well looked after. I have always wanted to own a Ken Ishiwata product and I'm chuffed. I will give my opions on sound later as I'm still in the honeymoon phase with it. First impressions, great build, sounds quite analogue and has less of the Marantz sound which I like but just enough to let you know that you are listening to one. It has a warm sound signature, sweet midrange and treble and the bass of a tube amp. My CD 5004 is going away as I can't bear to listen to it without my dac. Goes well with my Cayin. I would like to hear from owners whether current or past, as well as fans and haters. What do you think of this CDP? Is it overhyped?
