Marantz SA-KI Ruby CD/SACD Signature DSD player! Special edition! excellent cond! [Expired]


no longer for sale

This is a 2.5 year old special edition Marantz SA KI Ruby. The KI stands for Kenny Ishiwata, and this high end CD/SACD player bears his signature. This is a beautifully made and  finished player weight almost 40pounds. Beautiful sound, slightly warm, well extended, good bass definition and wide sound stage, and has asynchronous USB dac. Note; the only difference between this and the top of line SACD 10 is this is unbalanced compared to the balanced SACD 10. Not an issues if your amplifier is not and minute differences in any case.
I am the original owner and it is in excellent condition. I am selling because I need a streamer also in addition to CD/SACD player. This has Marantz built custom transport and avoids a DAC but directly converting the signal to DSD. More description is below and from the Marantz website https://www.marantz.com/en-us/product/cd-players/sakiruby.
I prefer cashiers check and MO's. Paypal is acceptable with a 3% fee. Shipping will run $70-85 to most places. Buy with confidence.
