Product Description

Marantz Raises the Bar: One of the World's Very Best CD/SACD Players!

The SA-7s1 is a Work of Art: A Musical Instrument Unto Itself! 

The newest product in the Marantz Reference Series is one of the world’s best-sounding digital players. The new SA-7s1 is has quickly become the best-sounding player ever to come from Marantz. Built around a custom-made aluminum transport mechanism, the SA-7s1 has one of the lowest read-error rates. This player also uses a brand-new DAC chipset from NPC (Nippon Precision Circuits), which has the best-rated specs of any current DAC chipset. This new DAC has enabled the SA-7s1 to have one of the highest signal-to-noise ratios, incredible dynamic range, and extremely low Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) specifications. A specially designed internal clock ensures that the digital bit-stream has an almost immeasurable amount of jitter. This chipset even allows for phase inversion in the digital domain.

“The Marantz SA-7s1 is an exceptionally fine-sounding source component. I found its sound difficult to fault, and indeed it rather aggressively reminded me that the much higher priced players might find it difficult to justify their prices in listening terms alone. The Marantz is a superbly built and superb sounding unit. It is, in short, a bargain for what it offers!”
—Robert E. Greene, The Absolute Sound, Editors' Choice Award Winner

All of this technical sophistication would be meaningless without the Marantz HDAM-SA2 analog stage, which gives the SA-7s1 one of the least-fatiguing sounds of any digital player we’ve ever heard. Even the most die-hard vinyl fanatics will love listening to this player for hours on end. Of course, this player uses the finest toroidal power supply, with separate supplies for the digital sections, analog section, and the display. This player is exceptionally quiet. Whether for standard CD playback or SACD, we believe that the Marantz SA-7s1 is one of the very finest digital playback devices available.

Comes with a 1-Year Parts and Labor Warranty and our 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee!

“I have not purchased a player since the Sony SCD-1, and had no intentions of doing so until the SA-7 made its way into my life. I figured to wander aimlessly from review unit to review unit; but this all changed with the Marantz. I knew this piece was not leaving my room, unless pried from my hands. If you have reached a point in your life where you have the desire and the wherewithal for the best, and you are all grown up and truly a music lover first and an audiophile secondarily …please take the time and opportunity to hear a fully run-in SA-7S1!”
