Marantz PMD321 CD Players

PMD321

The PMD321 is based on the same cost effective and reliable platform as the PMD320, but is extended in its featuring. Equipped with an adjustable balanced (XLR) analog output (+4dBu), digital balanced (XLR) out, Fader Start, Autocue and Pitch Control, the product has found its inroads into many broadcasting and installer applications. The Autocue function searches the beginning of the music after a track has been selected and pauses the CD Player. Silent parts in the beginning of a track can be simply skipped this way.

This is a very solid player from Mrantz, it features great shock sensitivity, fast reading and accessing of tracks, direct track access via front panel, and very detailed and clean, clear sound. Sounds like a Marantz... There is no stop button, but the pause feature is well designed and resumes very quickly. I have not run into a cd that this thing would not play yet! Every burned cd, store bought, anything. I received the unit for $16 because it would not read a disc, So I proceeded to open the hood, found the laser gain on the bottom of the laser, turned it clockwise about 1/4 tuen, and presto, has worked fine since. Good,solid player and they come around pretty cheap. anything Marantz you can count on having a warm, clean sound and great build quality. I have this unit paired up with a Denon flagship receiver from the 90's and it sounds great with this player. Note: There are no RCA outputs on this unit, it is XLR output only. (Adjustable gain too!) I had to get a pair of XLR to RCA cables....
