I found yet another link with the Sa 10 HiFi Choice review. I think someone else found it previously but it would not translate from Polish. This link gives you free digital editions of the magazine and google chrome will translate. You have a translate option and the magazine in the lower right corner has the Sa 10 review. The link is as follows: http://www.hifichoice.pl/
Thanks! again for sharing- rogl
it would appear that this spinner is quite popular in the EU.
Wonder has it reached a few in Japan?
Fantja I have seen some reviews from Asia. I am not sure if it was Japan specifically. The translation on those was a little rough; but
I could get the general idea. I see alot of common ground in the comments on most of the Pro reviews I have read both domestically and overseas. I think that is good news on the general consensus of the performance of the Sa 10. It certainly runs paralell to my thoughts on the unit.
Disbeliever I should have said "professional" reviews instead of "pro" reviews (as in pro or con} to avoid any confusion. I realized my mistake when I saw that you had commentted about a general user review that was posted on this forum.
IMO hiredfox's comments on the SA-10 appear to be the most authentic having very long experience with top end Marantz spinners far more than other posters and reviewers.
Disbeliever my thread was making reference to the professional reviews that I have read. I am trying to contribute as much new information as I can to the forum. I don't understand what a user review has to do with the thread I started. I believe I have seen hiredfoxs' review or comments regarding it in a number of threads earlier. I think those threads were related to the other user reviews. I hope this helps to clarify my post.
Disbeliever I don't have to much else to comment on regarding your last post. I will let the other members decide whether or not they think comments about hiredfoxs' assessment of the Sa10 belongs in my thread about the Professional reviews.
I have not been able to access any of the foreign reviews you mention but I assume you are pleased that these reviews agree with your own take on the SA-10 .
I am pleased with the reviews; but I also realize that regardless of the Pro or forum user reviews a broken in player needs to be auditioned by the perspective buyer. My thoughts are that the reviews can be used as a general guideline to see if a player is even worth an audition. But the bottom line is if the listener is not satisfied after the audition the reviews won't matter any more. With the cost of some of the equipment in todays' market buying a player that does't satisfy can be an expensive mistake.
I hope to read more reviews from owners. This is still a "new" spinner.
Fantja I think Frank said he's going to do a follow up review on his unit and I think annapurna is going to do one after he gets his new unit.
I should be getting my player soon, likely beginning of June or late May. As I am not a native English speaker, I doubt I can call it a review, rather a short write up after i hear it. I have owned a few Marantz Cd players including CD94, CD7 and NA11S1 so I hope to be able to hear the difference and improvement that the SA10 will bring. I have always prefer by a great margin analog playback from my SME 20/12 and also from various analog playblack from friend's setup compared to their digital and I hope this time Marantz can make me enjoy digital.

Annapurna thanks for the update. I wll be looking forward to your comments once you have broken in and tested the player. FYI you are doing great with your english.
I am ready for Frank I 's review.
No need for Frank 1's review, hired fox's will be the most authentic with his long experience of Marantz spinners and his regular attendance at live Classical concerts. Only buy the expensive SA-10 if you are very interested in Stereo SACD .CD performance not as good as previous Marantz spinners.
slowly this spinner is making the "rounds". I read over many, many, Audio forums and have asked owners to post their listening impressions.
No Need ,just take notice of the most authentic you will find, hired fox's
Thanks! for the updates- rogl.
Hi Rogl hiredfox's posted comments are entirely his own, are no way related to other user or professional reviewers. IMO they are the most authentic for the reasons I have given plus most importantly he regularly attends live classical Concerts and like myself has had many conversations with Marantz designer Ken Ishiwata, in my case over 30 years.
