Marantz Black Super Audio CD Player - SA8005

For the ultimate music listening experience, the Marantz SA8005 Super Audio CD player incorporates a host of exclusive technologies from our reference class players, including discrete HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) components, which provide wide bandwidth and high slew rate for the utmost musical fidelity. In addition to SACD and CD playback, the SA8005 also features multiple playback options from a range of other digital audio sources, including iPod and iPhone devices, as well as the ability to play back digital audio files from a PC, via the included asynchronous USB-B port. The rugged chassis features a dual layer bottom plate for high rigidity and freedom from vibration-induced distortion, and the center mounted disc drive features its own isolated sub-chassis that provides further vibration protection. Equipped with the reference-class high current CS4398 digital-to-analog converter, the SA8005 also features optical and digital audio inputs that let you use the player as a standalone D/A converter with your other digital audio sources. The front panel USB-A port lets you connect your favorite portable audio device, and is compatible with iPod, iPod touch and iPhone sources. The rear panel USB-B port lets you connect your home PC to play back digital audio files, including high resolution PCM and DSD tracks.
