Marantz SA8005 Award Winning Super Audio CD Player

Marantz design engineers have taken everything possible from what we learned in the Premium Range and reincarnated that knowledge in this exquisite stereo SACD Player - along with a mega-portion of versatility.

For example, it faithfully reproduces a wide sound stage with no extra or missing information, thanks to the faster, low-noise and lower impedance symmetrical circuits with high-quality components. The loading mechanism virtually eliminates resonance, while its reduced distortion spectrum gets the very best of audio quality from SACDs. And just like the Premium SA-14S1, the SA8005 includes a DAC-mode. It has optical and coaxial digital input as well as USB-B for direct connection to your PC. This means you can use the player’s 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 operates as a soundcard for the PC and the USB-B port works in asynchronous mode to support not only 192 kHz / 24bits but also the DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz for maximized versatility and performance. All these different sources use the same excellent audio processing, so all your music will radiate the same intense lustre, energy, and pin-point detail – whatever the source. Enjoy.

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.
