Summary: Model year is a 2012 SA8004 SACD. I had it for two weeks and it's already back to Marantz. Errors when reading disc. When it did, I found the SA8004SACD to be lacking in clarity and definition. Would not recommend. Marantz is sending me a new unit which I will sell before opening the box. I wish I could have heard it before I purchased it, however no dealers in my area had one on display. Now I know why.
