The PM7005 brings in the new with the old by providing a USB-B connection capable of hi-res 192kHz/24 bit audio files, as well as DSD files in both 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz but also providing an integrated phono stage input with Marantz’s Analog Mode that shuts of digital circuitry to maximize the analog goodness.  

Additional features for the PM7005 include digital optical and coaxial inputs, a remote control,  a signal isolator for DAC Mode, and a current feedback phono equalizer to help insure the purest listening, from 1s and 0s to analog grooves.
