Seems Excellent on Short-Term experience.

  • Summary: I have only been using it about a month. So far, it's performed flawlessly. No problems, seems a very competent system component. The only reason I gave it four stars rather than five is its signage: on the faceplate, everything is printed in a very dark grey, and of course the Player is all black.

Marantz SA8004 Super Audio CD/CD Player

  • Summary: The audio quality of this unit is clearly better than any other that I have had. It is quiet to the extreme (mechanically). I love listening to it both as an SACD and CD player. It has never failed to play any CD that I have made in .wav or mp3 format.

  • Summary: I really like my Marantz SA 8004 sacd player. Funny, I read some of the less enthusiastic reviews, then read the one from the Odyssey amp owner. Viola. He feels the same as me. Guess what, I own an Odyssey stratus extreme amp.

  • Summary: I did not buy the SA8004 for its connectivity so i'm only commenting on the sound. My sample was not killer as some "pro" reviews seem to suggest. It was very good but not exceptional.

Very good player, a bit slow on the draw

  • Summary: I bought this player because it seemed like an entry-level high-end product and could interface with my laptop. I usually use it play my old collection of CDs. My speakers are two audiophile-quality B&Ws, and I use two amplifiers (discontinued Arcam FMJ 22) to power the bass and treble separately.

Maranta SA8004 Super Audio CD Player

Reviewer, Amazon

  • Summary: On the first CD player I received, the disc tray would not open. I returned the product and received a replacement. The drawer on the second unit seems to work appropriately. There is no shipping lock on the tray.
