The new 10 Series, or as Marantz refers to as the “New Reference” consist of the Marantz SA-10 SACD/CD Player and the Marantz PM-10 Integrated Amplifier. The SA-10 plays SACD, CD, DVD-R/RW and CD-R/RW discs. In addition, high-resolution audio can be played through the SACD-M3 disc drive via CD or DVD. The built in DAC on the SA-10 features new technology referred to as Marantz Musical Mastering, a unique method of digital music processing for maximum musical fidelity. Most remarkably, this technology was previously used only in professional recording studios, and now available on the SA-10.

The other half of the Series 10 additions, the Marantz PM-10 is an integrated amplifier with a dual-mono design. This design utilizes separate power supplies for the preamplifier and each of the power amplifier channels, with one transformer dedicated to the preamp to ensure the delicate signals passing through that section of the amplifier aren’t affected by the demands of the high power output stages. Moreover, it contains a dedicated supply for the microprocessor controlling volume adjustment, input selection and so on, ensuring no noise from the control section finds its way in to the audio path.

The Marantz PM-10 also features a purely analog amplifier. This minimizes noise, keeping its amplifiers as pure and clean as possible.

The Marantz SA-10 SACD/CD player/DAC has a retail price of $6,999 and the PM-10 amplifier is $7,999. Be sure to visit our store to checkout these exciting new models.
