You are looking at a super clean, fully flexible DAC/Network player. This Marantz is not only their current top of the line DAC, but it is a swiss army knife for audio format function. I use this unit for both USB movie audio streaming duty, NAS streaming playback and Spotify listening. Regarding music playback, I have fed it both via JRiver out of my laptop, and Bubble UPNP. Files I have had no issues with, WAV, FLAC, AIFF, MP4 and running 24/96 HD tracks. I have not used any DSD as I do not own DSD files and cannot comment. I have used a Samsung Tab4 as my remote with the Marantz app mostly.
Through my tube preamp and SS amp set up, this is a magical combination. I upgrade my DAC each year, having stepped up to the Marantz Jan 4th this year. 10 months is actually a long time in my set up, and is the oldest piece of gear in my system, save for the laptop itself. I operate my gear each week, in a controlled, pet free, smoke free and immature kid free environment. I take excellent care of my gear and have the feedback on both Ebay and Audiogon to prove it.
If local to Northern California, I'd be happy to demo this DAC/streamer for a serious buyer. Shipping is not an issue either. I have all the original packaging, remote, OS disc, manual and 3.5mm trigger cable along with power cable. I am the second owner which is why this is rated at 8/10 otherwise it is a 9 visually/cosmetically. Sonically it has few peers in its price class. I've been on an ARC kick lately and have my eye on something higher up the food chain.
No PayPal fees to buyer. Flat rate shipping with signature required, I will cover anything over the $52.50 shipping expense to east coast audiophiles. I will accept personal checks only on the condition of clearing the funds will I ship the unit.
