Bottom Line:   
Bought to replace an 11-year old Sony CDP-50 that finally died. Immediately noticed much improved detail, especially in the treble. Have had only slight troubles reading music CD-R's burned on PCs, but this was resolved by replacing the CD burner! Other than that, zero complaints. I'm glad I grabbed it when I saw it.

Unit had a 60Hz transformer hum that was solved by loosening the transformer mounting screws and inserting foam rubber as isolators. Now it's totally silent.

Bottom Line:   
Had unit mothballed for 4 years. Took it out and it started skipping and skipping and skipping and found out from Marantz repair it is laser which costs more than the damn machine. Sound quality is good. Build quality sucks. I'll never buy another Marantz product.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this player in 1997 and it was priced at 200$.

For few months it worked out fine, but then it started skipping tracks. It was repaired, broke again after a week and then it was replaced by a new unit.

New unit sounded a bit brighter, but now it skips tracks again, oddly it plays cd-r:s well but not the original cd:s.

I heard that the player mechanism from Philips had wrong kind of lubrication, thus the original problems with the tracks. This same applies to Micromega Stage 1, which has the same engine (but priced at 500$).

So this unit sounds fine, but it lasts only a couple of years.

Bottom Line:   
the cd-46 is good with treble and midrange, although it can sound a little bright at times. the only qualm must be the bass which is on the weak side but it has good control. all in all, a good product for the price. not for dance enthusiasts though.
