Marantz CD80

Published: May 5, 2021

High end CD player from 1990 including matching Marantz ZAMAC side panels and the Marantz RC-72CD remote control. The Marantz CD-80 CD player is equipped with the Philips CDM-1 MKII CD mechanism and the Philips TDA1541A-S1 d/a converter and features include analog (fixed + variable) and digital outputs (optical + coaxial).

The CD80 looks and feels heavy and solid. On close inspection though you'll see that the weight comes from the cast-iron cheek additions plus the heavy floor plate. So the weight aspect is pretty fake. The PCB is large, typical messy Marantz. Not very clean. The DAC is far far away from RCA outputs, indicating tons of garbage in between. The mechanism is a well known CDM1 mk2. The regulators of supplies sit on a heatsink, far far away from receiving parts. The TDA1541A-S1 dac is of course a good one. This player does not require cap modifications like cheap Marantz CD40, Marantz CD-50 and 60. It is already good in the cap department. Of course, it may be fully blackgated and it will benefit.


  • Year: 1989
  • Dimensions: 454 x 136 x 363mm

  • CD Mechanism: CDM-1 Mk II

The cable is the same as in the CD60 but the PCB is now bolted onto the drive so the connector is totally free of movement, a BIG design improvement. The quality of engineering is quite unbelievable. Solid metal everywhere. A PSU fit for a heavy amplifier.
