Marantz SA-14S1 SACD & Cd Player

The new SA-14S1 includes an oversized Toroidal transformer and a strong power supply section that generates the cleanest of power to eliminate component cross-contamination. This is the perfect platform referencequality sound, and for the Marantz disc mechanism to provide superb CD and SACD sound quality. But that’s just the start of this amazing player. It includes a DAC-mode that’s almost identical in functionality to that of the revolutionary NA-11S1. It has optical and coaxial digital input as well as USB-B for direct connection to a PC. This means it provides direct high-definition audio streaming from your PC so you can make use of the high quality DAC and the high quality audio output stage with HDAM-SA2 modules. That’s why, importantly, this newly developed player also includes our latest ground/signal isolator technology, to virtually eliminate PC noise. The player can operate as a soundcard for your PC and the USB-B port works in asynchronous mode to support not only 192kHz / 24bits but also the DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz for maximized versatility and performance. It even has a USB input on the front to play MP3, WAV, and AAC formats, and, of course it’s iPod/iPhone compatible. This is Super Audio CD quality in the sublime, and more. Much more.

PLEASE NOTE: In order to connect and playback audio from a PC Computer via a connected USB cable it is necessary first of all to install the appropriate software driver on to your PC. It is not necessary for MAC. Please find the driver software in the download section. How to install it is described in the user manual.
