Product Description

The Best-Sounding, Best-Built, Best-Looking CD/SACD Player Under Two Grand

The Marantz SA-15s2 Limited Edition is Personally Designed by Mr. Ken Ishiwata

For those driven by a search for the best in home music, the Marantz SA-15S2 Limited offers Reference Series reproduction of all your treasured Compact Discs and Super Audio CDs. The Limited is infused with audiophile-grade components, re-voiced for greater speed and harmonic balance, and boasts a gorgeous, black-anodized aluminum enclosure.

"The Marantz SA-15S2B is one of the most impressive digital source components I have reviewed in my system...I highly recommend [it] for those seeking a ruggedly built fantastic sounding player that can play both DSD and Redbook discs. It also offers up superb performance via its optical digital input, which handles up to 96 Khz, 24 bit PCM data. Marantz has hit it out of the park with what is sure to be a contender for product of the year."
-- Andre Marc, Audio Video Revolution, April 2012

A Marantz-designed, linear power supply anchors the SA-15S2 Limited with an outsized torroidal transformer to provide the voltage stability and freedom from noise that are necessary for the very best audio performance. An advanced transport mechanism employs resonance resistant Xyron (composite) components and is mounted to a heavyweight aluminum billet base.

The SA-15S2 Limited utilizes the superb Cirrus Logic CS4398 high-current DAC with 24-bit/192 kHz resolution for music reproduction with the speed and immediacy of a live performance; selectable interpolation filters allow for a slight tailoring of the response to suit individual systems, while an optical input allows for the use of external digital sources. Special audiophile-grade decoupling capacitors help deliver crisp, clean power to these all-important DAC stages for enhanced transparency and a jet-black background. HDAM SA2 modules are utilized throughout the analog output stage for wide dynamic range and the best possible fidelity. Audiophile-grade copper foil film capacitors and metallic film resistors are employed at critical points in the topology to further enhance performance.
