Marantz SA8003 SACD Player

16 January 2009
  • Summary: Bottom line, if all I can find to carp about in the SA8003 is the user interface, you can bet that what we're talking about here is a nice player indeed. Still, I'm enough of a cheapskate to feel that, for a thousand dollars, an audio component ought to flat-out thrill me in all areas, not just sound, so I don't mind knocking Marantz around a bit for leaving off a few niceties they should have known better to put in.

Marantz SA8003 CD/SACD player review

TechRadar UK
3 September 2008
  • Summary: New Ken Ishiwata-tweaked Marantz is an audiophile dream
  • Pros: Excellent low bass and admirably clean treble and midrange, An unusually even-handed approach to different musical styles, USB input a nifty plus
  • Cons: A slight added warmth in the upper bass may not be to every taste and minutely compromises detail, Highest treble just a shade shut-in too
