I recently bought the Q Acoustics 2020i cinema pack to add to my Denon 1910 AV. I've been particulary impressed by listening to music in "Pure direct" mode via my old Technics SL-PG490 CD player. I'm tempted to buy the Marantz CD6004 but would I really notice any marked difference in sound quality?

I think you would hear more difference with a dedicated stereo amp and some full size front speakers.

Of course then it would be worth buying a better CDP!

If you are hooking up the CD player via optical in to the amps Dac, I wouldn't bother. The Technics should be pretty decent as a transport?

I'll try the optical option, certainly cheaper than a new CDP-thanks for the suggestion Paul.

After a couple of weeks being impressed with improvements in sound, although output is lower, recently there have been drop outs in sound. At first, I thought it was a scratched CD. Connections seem to be fine. Am I overlooking something?

Nah, when I play through analogue connections there isn't a problem, no CD skipping. I think it's the cable or connections at times it gets so bad I switch to analogue. Maybe a duff cable? Cost 20 Euros.
