Hi every body. I just purchased a Marantz SA10. It surprises me how much speculation about this player has been posted without any factual information from owners.
Let me tell you the build quality is like that of a 7000$ player. Massive all copper box heavy and completely un resonant. Mechanical operation of drawer and key response if quite fast. How does it sound? Spectacular!
I am a die hard vinyl fan and I have a serious table and cartridge to compare it with. Playback of SACD's or DSD files produce as close a sound to analog vinyl as I have heard before. Warm sound with not a trace of CD brillance even on cds' Imaging and detail are first class. I downloaded a DSD file (Harry Connick Jr We are in Love DSD) and (Al Jareau My Old Friend FLAC) Loaded them on a USB Flash and plugged them in the rear socket. The SA10 recognized both flies quickly and played them back faultlessly. My next test will be if I can connect a streamer to the rear processor of the SA10. If you have any question I right here.
Thanks for the mini review rique. I am less interested in using such a machine for playing Downloads. Downloads are on the way out, being replaced by streaming. And streaming is not a hi-res format, so streaming does not interest me either, other than for sampling material for purchase. I am mainly interested in physical format playback of hi-res SACD content.
Did you connect the streamer? Does it work? I am looking for a new SACD/CD player and am very interested in the SA10. I would also like to be able to use the DAC for streaming. What has been your experience? It would be great to combine the functions of the Aurender A10 and the Marantz SA10 into a one box all purpose player :-) How close will the SA10 and its DAC get me?
or is that just if you are using a Marantz amp?
Really interested in this piece. Please keep us posted on it.
I don't use Vinyl as as my Standard.
My Sony HAP Z1 and Macintosh D 150 sound spectacular to me too.
I'd like to read about a comparison to other Digital competitors for the Marantz.
I don't doubt it's very fine.

That's not really a Review.
Tell us more.
Nobody has bad-mouthed it, lots of interested inmates here.
Sometimes speculation is all we have.
I'm certainly not going to buy one...
$7000 at Music Direct.
Marantz has been advertising it for weeks. No reviews, no owners, until now.
Post a Review.
At the top of the page, not down here where we went seriously off-topic.
