Marantz Audio Separates
While the overwhelming majority of new products at the CEDIA Expo this week have been centered around home theater, media servers or iPod accessories, I eventually found some news that will interest 2-channel audiophiles.
Marantz introduced three component separates this week, including the SC-7S2 Reference Control Amplifier (SRP: $7,999.99, availability September 2006), and the MA-9S2 Reference Power Amplifier (SRP: $7,999.99, availability September 2006).
Thanks to a major sound re-tuning by Marantz engineers, the SC-7S2 Reference Control Amplifier and the new MA-9S2 Reference Power Amplifier offer a major step-up in audio performance capabilities. The SC-7S2 sets the stage for musical reproduction virtuosity with a unique high channel separation design, upgraded low noise Toroidal transformer and more. With a total of 18 Marantz HDAM SA modules, the SC-7S2 is capable of reproducing the most demanding musical passages with clarity, subtlety and distinction. The unit's F.C.B.S (Floating Control Bus System) adds to its performance capabilities.
Marantz's MA-9S2 Reference Power Amplifier features a two-stage amplifier circuit, instantaneous high-current delivery capability and a double shielded low-noise Toroidal transformer. The unit's full-balanced circuitry, high-speed amplification system, and 300-watt (8 ohm)/600-watt (4 ohm) power capability delivers pure, balanced power to a no-compromise music system.
