Product Research


SACD Player: The Marantz SA8005 supports playback of single-layer, dual-layer, and hybrid-layer SACDs; as well as CD-Audio, CD-R/RW (MP3/WMA) discs. The Super Audio standard is based on Direct Stream Digital (DSD) technology. This direct-stream digital format is a 1-bit system with a sampling frequency 64x higher than a conventional audio CD (2,822,400 Hz vs. 44,100 Hz). SA-CD produces a frequency response of 2Hz to 50kHz and a 110dB dynamic range. Because of the way inaudible and audible frequencies mix, the resulting sound is more natural.

Marantz HDAM Technology: Instead of conventional op-amp integrated circuits, the SA8005 is equipped with our exclusive HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) technology. These discrete circuit elements feature wide-band response along with high slew rate, to deliver the most nuanced and detailed musical reproduction, and are ideally suited for today's high resolution wide-band digital audio sources.

High Resolution D/A Conversion: Featuring the reference-class high current CS4398 D/A converter, the SA8005 can accept a wide range of digital audio source types, including Super Audio CD Direct Stream Digital content at 2.8 and 5.6 MHz, along with linear PCM up to 24-bits/192kHz. The analog audio sections feature HDAM technologies for the purest audio reproduction. The DAC section features dual clock synchronization for optimum signal decoding, and can also decode MP3 and WMA digital audio formats.

Digital Inputs + Stand Alone DAC Capability: You can use the SA8005 as a stand-alone digital-to-analog converter, thanks to the inclusion of both coaxial and optical digital audio inputs. You can also connect your favorite portable audio device, via the convenient front-panel USB (type-A) port, and the SA8005 is compatible with the iPod, iPod touch and iPhone. The rear-panel asynchronous high speed USB (type-B) port lets you connect your home PC to the SA8005, so you can enjoy superb sound quality from your favorite PCM and DSD high resolution tracks stored on your computer. The USB (type-B) port also features Marantz's unique ground isolator circuit design that prevents PC-originated ground plane noise transfer.

  • Optical/Coaxial Inputs: The optical (toslink) and coaxial (RCA) digital inputs let you connect up to two external digital audio devices, such as Apple TV or other network digital audio players. Only PCM signals (32-192kHz) are compatible with the optical and coaxial inputs.
  • USB Type-A Input (iPod/Android Compatible): The front-panel USB port lets you connect select USB mass storage class devices (formatted in FAT16/32); such as Android smartphones/tablets (Froyo/Gingergread OS only), portable digital audio players, and thumbdrives; plus Apple iPod/iPhone devices (Classic, Nano, Touch, iPhone). You'll be able to listen to stored music (MP3/WMA/WAV/AAC) and music apps from your compatible device. This USB port will also charge your device while connected and you can control music playback from the included remote control.
  • USB Type-B Input (Mac/Windows Comaptible): By connecting a computer to the USB (type-B) port on the rear-panel of this unit, you're able to bypass the computer's soundcard and playback a variety of digital music files stored on your computer through the SACD player's 24-bit/192kHz DAC. The unit is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.3 and later, as well as Windows XP (SP3), Vista, 7, or 8. Windows requires the installation of a dedicated driver software found on the Marantz Website.

Analog & Digital Outputs: Two digital outputs, one optical (Toslink) and one coaxial (RCA), are provided for sending the audio signal to the digital input terminals of a receiver or digital recorder. No signal is output from either during playback of the HD layer of a Super Audio CD; digital signals are output when playing a CD, the CD layer of a Hybrid SA-CD, or any device connected to one of the digital inputs. The SACD player also features a stereo RCA analog output connection which can be set to variable or fixed.

Fully Discrete Headphone Amp: For the most enjoyable personal audio experience, connect your favorite headphones to the SA8005 and listen to the highest fidelity natural sound, thanks to our fully discrete headphone amplifier circuitry. With discrete circuit headphone amplifier topology, the SA8005 delivers superb personal listening, featuring wide-band response, tremendous dynamic range against a virtually noiseless background, and there's a convenient front-panel headphone volume control.

High Current Toroidal Power Transformer: For the most stable DC supply to the various circuit stages, the SA8005 is equipped with a high current toroidal power transformer, and features separate rectifier stages for the analog and digital sections to prevent mutual interference.

System Remote Control: The ergonomically designed remote control includes additional control functionality that lets you operate the matching Marantz PM8005 integrated stereo amplifier (642PM8005, sold separately) as well as our network audio component. The SA8005 also features remote control input and output ports for additional remote control connectivity.

Auto Standby: With the Auto Standby Mode turned on this unit will enter standby mode after approximately 30 minutes (continuous) of no audio playback.

BOX packed with 1year manufacturer warranty.
