New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

RE: Marantz SA-10 or SA-KI Ruby

I own both the SA11S3 and the SA-10. I can't really help you though since neither have needed laser replacement. I've had the 11S3 for seven-ish years, and the 10 for 4+. The former has tens of thousands of hours on it, the latter less. The 11s3 is in my bedroom system, so it plays all night while I sleep. I'm really hard on disc players, and only had to replace the (CD) laser once, back in the 80s. I don't know what the lifespan of the laser is supposed to be, but they do last.
I'm expecting the 10 to be my last player, and your Ruby should also last a really long time. Sorry this isn't more helpful.
