RE: Marantz SA10 Reviews

Thanks to all for contributing to this thread. I remain interested in the SA10, but will be cautious.
The SA14 is not bad, and as I wrote before SACD's sound very good and CD's okay. I know I cannot expect CD's to sound as good as SACD's but i do hope that on the SA!0 they could rival my vine setup. I was just listening again last night. I didn't do any AB switching (I'm more interested in music than sound), but, judging on memory, my impression that more excitement (micro dynamics, tone purity, the thrill of "thereness") is provided by the vinyl than the CD's. Specifically, this holds on:

a. The Bohm recording of the Magic Flute (with Fischer-Dieskau)
b. The Barenboim recording of L'Enfant et les Sortileges
c. The recording of Crumb's Idyll for the Misbegotten played by Ziti Mueller

In each case I have CD's and LP's, and the latter are thrilling, the former merely good.

Further information is welcome, especially from Hiredfox.
