The front drawer loading is convenient, and the competitively-priced Marantz CD-73 has many other convenient features too... like 15-item programming, random access function, forward track skip and repeat.

Pause, fast search forward or backward, music track indication and next track are other facilities offered by this superbly-engineered CD player. Digital filtering ensures outstanding sound quality, and an optional remote control unit is available for even greater operational convenience.

Marantz CD73 advertisement November 1984

"Price for price I don't think that as of now this player can be bettered. Strongly recommended"
(Reviewed when the selling price was £379!)

The treble register is finely detailed with a believable string tone, and great delicacy where appropriate; altogether superior to analogue disc".
