New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

RE: marantz SA-10

The XA5400 ES is getting a bit long in the tooth now so where are you going from here, they can't last forever and Sony are no longer interested.

Marantz are proving to be an Audiophile's best friend; this is 2017 and we are getting a new high-end SACD disc player from them. Who else is going to make a commitment like that to us? Just cut them some slack Gerald and stop beating yourself up about them.

You will recall the XA5400 ES lasted only 2 months in my system and was much inferior to the SA11-S3 which lasted 5 months - both sold on e-Bay at their times. The weakness of the Sony is that conversion to PCM which ruins the DSD information, lowest common denominator and all that.
