The Marantz CD 50n is a sophisticated fusion of a CD player and network streamer, crafted to deliver unparalleled sound excellence from a single source.

A Hub for Your Digital Music

The Marantz CD 50n contains all the digital music sources you might need, within a single, stylish casing. With wi-fi, Bluetooth and AirPlay 2 on board, all your favourite services, such as Spotify, TIDAL, Apple Music and Amazon Prime Music are easy to access. There’s also HEOS, which facilitates multiroom music streaming and effortless app control. Playback your existing CDs via the top quality CD player. Thanks to its wide range of digital inputs, including HDMI, you can even use the CD 50n as a DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) and connect your TV, computer and more.

Better sound through precision design and premium components
Lift the lid on the CD 50n and you’ll discover a top rate audio spec. Customised, high grade components are used throughout, delivering pure, low distortion sound. The symmetrical layout produces an expansive and perfectly balanced soundstage. A toroidal power supply copes effortlessly with power demands, ensuring the music remains high in dynamic output and low in distortion. Unique to Marantz, the CD 50n also uses the company’s famed HDAM circuitry.

Hi-Res music compatible
The quality sound continues with the Hi-Res music compatibility. The CD 50n is able to stream Hi-Res 192kHz/24 bit signals through all its digital inputs. Connect via the USB-B input and the player extends this to 384 kHz/32 bit files and it also decodes DSD files right up to 11.2MHz.

Bluetooth, AirPlay 2 and Internet radio for the complete networking experience
With both Bluetooth and AirPlay 2 connectivity, it's easy to connect all your smartphones, tablets and compatible lap/desktops and stream music wirelessly. The CD 50n also comes with wi-fi and Internet radio. Simply connect to your home network and access thousands of Internet radio sites via TuneIn as well as subscription services such as Spotify Connect (Premium Spotify account required), Tidal, Deezer and Amazon Prime Music. Network compatibility lets you stream from other sources such as your laptop or NAS drive.

HEOS built-in - for the finest multi-room audio
HEOS multi-room music systems connect together by dual-band Wi-Fi, making them easy to set up with your existing home network. Up to 32 HEOS units can be set up at one time, ensuring even the largest of homes are covered for multi-room music. With HEOS already built-in, the CD 50n is ready to go as a single 'zone' without any further adaptors.

Control it all with the HEOS app
Once you've set up your HEOS speaker system, you can stream music effortlessly via the dedicated HEOS app. Available for Apple iOS, Android and Amazon Kindle, the app not only lets you stream your stored music but also Internet radio services and popular streaming services such as Spotify, Tidal, Napster and Deezer.

CD playback
As one of the very first CD player manufacturers and amongst the most highly reviewed, you can be assured of class-leading sound from your silver discs. A selectable filter lets you choose between a deeper or brighter sound while the top quality DAC ensures superb realism.

Plug in your TV, games console and more - a DAC for all your digital sources
The CD 50n comes with handy digital inputs, letting it perform the function of a sound enhancing DAC. Connect your TV via HDMI, your games console and other device via optical and coaxial, and let the Marantz’s top quality, high resolution electronics boost the sound from all your devices.

Asynchronous USB input for great sound from your computer
At the rear of the CD 50n is also an USB-B socket that’s designed for connecting up to your PC or Mac (PCs may require a software driver uploading). Once connected, the asynchronous link means that your soundcard is bypassed with the audio sound processing now handled by the Marantz. Using its own premium digital to analogue processing, the sound quality from your PC or Mac is greatly enhanced.

Premium build quality
With Marantz’s heritage inspired style and premium finish, the CD 50n has a timeless appeal. More than just looking good, the sturdy metal casing, with double layer chassis strengthening, is rigid and resistant to mechanical and electrical interference. This helps reduce audio distortion, giving you a smoother and more detailed sound.
