Marantz SA-11s3: The Gold Standard Gets Another Huge Upgrade

One of the Most Natural-Sounding, Full-Featured Digital Players Ever Built

The Marantz SA-11s2 was one of the most musical and best-reviewed CD/SACD players we had ever heard...and now it's even better! The completely redesigned Marantz Refrerence SA-11s3 offers several major advancements over its predecessor. Fully updated and improved, this award-winning player now includes a USB DAC with asynchronous input and 24bit/192kHz decoding. A new custom digital filter features 8x oversampling and user-adjustable settings. The custom-built Marantz transport mechanism is included from the SA-7S1, a fully-copper-enclosed toroidal transformer, the newest Nippon DACs, a customized low-jitter clock, and the Marantz HDAM-SA2 analog output stage have all been upgraded, as well.Bottom line: this digital work station does it all and does it right.

"The SA-11S3 may be the best digital source component from Marantz yet. It is a virtual Swiss Army knife of digital playback. Not only does the SA-11S3 act as a digital hub and a DAC, but it is one with no compromise in quality across the board. By the way, it is also a superb SACD player."
– Andre Marc, AV Revolution

The reference-player weighs in at almost 40 pounds with an all-new black anodized aluminum billet chassis copper lined chassis. A luxurious measure against radiated noise, copper-lining adds considerable mass for enhanced resonance damping as well. The player’s massive transformer has an additional copper shield to minimize signal interference. We don't need to tell you the new look is simply gorgeous.

The SACD-optimized Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Modules (HDAM SA2) achieve a more dynamic, detailed, and accurate analog signal through either the RCA or XLR outputs. The digital input options now includes a front-panel USB-A for connecting your iPhone, iPod, iPad or similar device directly to the SA-11s3's incredible DAC. As well as coaxial (S/PDIF), optical (TOS-Link) and USB rear connections for playback of all your digital music files. The SA-11s3 also includes balanced (XLR) and single-ended (RCA) outputs for complete compatibility with any system.

The SA-11s3 includes Marantz's proprietary switchable noise shaping digital filters which fine-tune the musical presentation to your specific tastes. This is the ultimate analog lover's digital player. Whether playing high-resolution SACDs or standard CD, the performance of the SA-11s3 is simply unrivaled!

The SA-11s3 is backed by a very generous guarantee; 5 years parts and labor, 3 years Parts/5 years labor on the CD-Drive and optical pickup.
