Marantz SA-7S1 Reference SACD Player
This week at the CEDIA Expo, Marantz introduced their state-of-the-art SA-7S1 Reference SACD Player, packed with audiophile-grade selected components.
The SA-7S1 features a newly designed aluminum mechanism, as well as advancements such as a selectable digital filter, low-jitter internal clock, digital phase converter and more. To bring out the best and brightest sounds of today's advanced digital audio disc formats, including SACD, CD, and CD-R/RW recordings, the platinum SA-7S1 SACD player utilizes refinements such as D-A Isolated Circuit Construction, high-accuracy NPC SM5966AS DACs, and DAM SA Buffer Amps. An ingeniously designed shorter signal path circuit board construction adds to the SA-7S1's stunning music reproduction capabilities, decoding SACD's Direct Stream Digital (DSD) bit stream (1-bit sampled at 2.8224 MHz) with frequency response to 100 kHz and an incredible dynamic range of 113 dB (at lower frequencies).
The player's audiophile-grade massive toroidal transformer delivers all the power necessary to bring out the best in digital music sources. The SA-7S1's front-panel FL display features Marantz's blue backlighting and utilizes a separate power supply to prevent noise interfering with the audio signal path.
The SA-7S1 carries a MSRP: $6,999.99 and will be available in November, 2006.
