A proper demo- any dealer/retailer suggestions?
There are dealers demonstrating in the UK but I will not be wasting my time or money. Surely there are Marantz dealers in the US giving demos.
a review is forthcoming by Frank I.
I shall be more interested to learn from Hired Fox especially if the SA-10 is much better than the SA7-S1 which should not be too dificult, I expect it will be for CD but for SACD ? both of course are totally useless for me as I much prefer mch SACD which is considerably superior to STEREO, most SACDs include 5.0 surround sound.
Disbeliever, you must find it very limiting only listening to multichannel recordings. I mean, if there are, --- and let us be kind, say 300 such recordings --- and a person generously likes say 20% of performances/artists, and say 20% of recordings, you would be down to a selection of 12 discs you would really like. Not much.
You could have a really hi-res SACD player for the thousands of other hi-rez stereo SACDs out there (and millions of CDs), and keep a cheap old Sony Playstation for your multi-channel fix, along with that curio of a Laservision player.
All except one of my many SACDs are mch and as for CD I get excellent sound from my Str-Da5400ES AVR ( UK version with very low jitter HATS) & DA 5400ES SACD/CD player, I seem to be the only one on this forum with this excellent combo. I have never owned a playstation or Laservision player. Having owned and sold the obese stereo only Marantz SA7-S1 I cerainly would never consider buying the SA-10si.
Sure hope so- Disbeliever.
