New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

Good Choice - You and Milpai Get It!

"Economies of Scale" are relevant and important. For both the R&D that goes into products such as the Marantz Reference Series SACD players and the ability to offer them at very reasonable prices. I've written before that if these Reference Series players were made by smaller companies like Ayre, Playback Designs, etc., they would sell for 2 - 3 times the price that Marantz charges.

As for the poster above who had three SA-11S2s go bad between him and a friend: I don't doubt it, but they must be very unlucky. This is the first time I have heard of the "laser transverse" problem. Several google searches didn't find anything either.

Of course the proof will be in the sound, so please do report back. You may want to start a new thread as this one is working its way down towards the bottom of the page. Give the SA-11S2 a little break-in time and don't forget that main power fuse!
