I am the original owner of this Marantz Reference line CD/SACD
player, and it has been pulling me in to the music for over 10 years. I don’t
care what other gear you have, the Marantz SA7-S1 is so beautifully made that it
will be the standout on your rack. It’s a stunning piece of audio jewelry that
looks better live than in any pictures. And at 50 lbs. it’s a beast.
In terms of sound, it’s smooth, effortless, and relaxed. So
easy to listen to. There is a wealth of detail, it’s just more about helping
you get lost in the music than encouraging intellectual analysis of the
recording techniques. I play drums, so appreciate slam, and low and high end
detail to hear the drum parts. My wife is a singer, so wants a lovely midrange.
We’ve both been very satisfied.
This unit plays perfectly and is cosmetically flawless.
Comes with the remote, manual, and factory box. Buyer pays shipping (actual
cost) and the 3% Paypal fee.
