Marantz Musical Mastering technology defines new standards in the digital and analogue audio processing. A disc mechanism built purely for audio, the “SACDM-3” is able to play SACDs, CDs, and compilations on CD-ROM or DVD-ROM. It also has an asynchronous USB input, able to handle formats all the way up to PCM/DXD 384kHz/32bit and DSD11.2MHz. The Marantz Musical Mastering Stream transforms all PCM file formats to DSD format, using advanced filtering and proprietary processing before the Marantz Musical Mastering Conversion converts the 1-bit data stream directly into an analogue signal without the use of a conventional D/A converter.

The Marantz engineering team created this player to deliver the kind of sound able to bring you closer than ever to your favourite music. The reason is simple, and central to everything Marantz does — because music matters.

  • Engineered and extensively tuned by a team drawing on more than 35 years of Marantz expertise in CD players
  • Innovative Marantz Musical Mastering “MMM-Stream” up-sampling to DSD and filtering
  • Custom-designed 1-bit direct “MMM–Conversion” from DSD to analogue
  • High quality analogue output stage with Marantz HDAM-SA3 technology and low impedance output
  • In-house developed Marantz SACD/CD mechanism “SACDM-3” designed purely for audio
  • Playback of SACD/CD playback and of compilations on CD-ROM and DVD-ROM (audio)
  • Asynchronous USB input for hi-res audio up to PCM/DXD 384kHz/32bit and DSD11.2MHz
  • Isolation of USB and digital inputs to block noise from connected sources
  • Power supply using toroidal transformer
  • Dedicated headphone amplifier with all-discrete construction featuring HDAM-SA2

Extensive and painstaking tuning by sound masters is what powers the exquisite sonic signature of any Marantz product. No component leaves the hands of Marantz Sound Masters until it passes rigorous testing. Only the finest products, thoroughly tested and tenderly handled, make it to your home.

Marantz Special Editions are the Marantz way to celebrate the love of music that runs deep in the veins of Marantz sound masters and engineers, exhibited in the artistry and craftsmanship of those special components. Sound Masters will occasionally identify a product with a higher potential than expected and master it with extra unwavering attention to detail, component selection and listening sessions. The original SA-12 was solely created for the Japanese market, and quickly proved to be the next chosen one. European sound engineers combined it with achievements made developing the famous SA-KI Ruby, and thus the SA-12 Special Edition was born.
