The SA8003 represents uncompromised music reproduction from CD, SA-CD and even USB devices. With technology derived from Marantz’s acclaimed flagship Super Audio CD player, every aspect of the SA8003’s construction has been critically reviewed and developed by us to attain uncompromised quality. This design configuration translates into clear and powerful reproduction of even the most demanding recorded musical performances. The copper-plated chassis and rear panel reduce signal-degrading electromagnetic interference and offers lowest impedance grounding to every spot of the player. Every aspect of Marantz’s extensive knowledge and expertise has been used in perfecting the symmetric circuitries with top-quality parts, ensuring pure audiophile hi-fi enjoyment. The new Xyron loading mechanism enables listeners fully to appreciate Super Audio CDs and provides the perfect depth, dynamics, and sonic excellence you’ve come to expect from this exquisite Super Audio CD player. It can even replay compressed audio formats such as MP3 and WMA in the same high-fidelity quality. A USB front input completes this extraordinary player, which will bring many hours of unsurpassed listening.
