FS Marantz SA8005 sacd/dac

First dibs here.

Really flexible cdp/sacd/dac/headphone amp, rrp £999 though they were available circa £899 until recently. Lots of great reviews, in particular from the US

As well as playing CD and SACD you can access the DAC in various ways.

Plug an iphone, ipod or ipad directly into the front panel USB, adjust the input, press play and music will pour forth (also plays MP3 from the front panel and poss the rear USB though I never tried).

From the USB B input on the rear it plays DSD 2.8 & 5.6 mhz and pcm up to 24/192

Also has optical and coaxial inputs & outputs.

It has a headphone output on the front panel with it’s own volume control.

A friend uses one as a transport into an AN dac, sounds awesome.

Battleship build quality, it’s a heavy lump, even the case fixing bolts are copper.

Very clean, thought it was mint but noticed a couple of small rubs on the top as I gave it a wipe for pics. Pic inc.
