Marantz Audio Separates

Filed under: Amplifiers

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 [PM11S1] 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.

Over the years J. has constantly found himself to be an "early-adopter," spending way too much money on "new" technologies such as Compact Disc, LaserDisc, and DVD. He is one of the few people who actually purchased (and still owns) a CORE programmable remote control (bonus points if you remember this product).
