This stereo SACD and CD player underlines the Marantz heritage for high-quality two channel audio reproduction. It faithfully reproduces a wide sound stage with no extra or missing information, thanks to the faster, low-noise and lower impedance symmetrical circuits with high-quality components. The loading mechanism is made from a new material called Xyron, which is very rigid and therefore virtually eliminates resonance, while its reduced distortion spectrum gets the very best of audio quality from SACDs. It can even replay compressed audio formats such as MP3 and WMA in high-quality. The headphone amplifier and gold-plated outputs complete this beautiful player. In total, the SA7003 expresses the Marantz dedication to the purest reproduction of musical emotion. Enjoy
