Found at GBP700, the player was after slashed by Marantz to £430 in the light of rivalry...
Since then Marantz has found the reassuringly upmarket NA-11S1 network player/DAC, part of its own Benchmark range, and it is from this that the new NA8005 is partly derived, even though the electronic phase here is closer to that of the SA8005 SACD/CD player in the same Marantz set as the network machine we've here.
This would be initiated through the menu of the Marantz unit.
If you do not see your model listed below and do not know how to perform a firmware update our customer service team would be happy to assist you. The model number can be found on the front of the unit and in most cases on the back panel of the unit.
These operational difficulties vanish, naturally, when the asynchronous input signal that is USB can be used, letting the computer functioning it to take over management responsibilities and turning the NA8005.
Also noticeable is the sound of the Marantz changes, the bass guitars in the Piazzola having the violins as well as a far more pleasing growl breeze and assault. The record is produced using an excellent balance of little- the power of the group as well as gigabyte affair, and tracks like 'Adventures In A Yorkshire Landscape' sing out having an attractive tonality to Nelson's guitar.

Here, however, there is a sense of the NA8005 playing things a little safe: a little more space and openness in the treble wouldn't right, and while the bass is large and exuberant, some rhythmic drive would be welcome.
The capacity to control the player with only the remote may come in handy based on how well you get on using the Marantz Remote Program that is discretionary, accessible for both Apple and Android smartphones and tablet computers. It is all somewhat frustrating: it is not as bad as I recall it being, locating records and tracks comparatively fast whether used with Minim Server or Twonkymedia as the providing applications on the NAS drive when the program is great.
The NA8005 is tossed somewhat greater compared to NA7004, and as such has a more upmarket feel and look, plus an increased array of connectivity.
