Hi guys I have a grado sr225i and I'm thinking of pairing with the following CD players straight, meaning without additional headphone amp. Please tell me which one will suit the headphone best, thanks!

Marantz CD5004

Marantz CD6003

Denon DCD510AE

Thanks in advance for the advice!

The Marantz CD6003 is an excellent player which also has a fairly decent heaphone out and will drive the Grado's fine.

However, if you have read Ken Ishawata's interview he has mentioned that the upcoming replacement for the CD6003 - the CD6004 - has had improvements made to the headphone out, and personally I would wait until that becomes available to demo as well.

I found the sr225's easy to drive from almost any source i've tried...but with a decent one they sound more lively. I dont have experience with the players posted, but you got a recommendation. They're great headphones!
