I noticed there wasn't a recent thread discussing the Marantz SA-10 CD/SACD player. Below is a copy of a post from the SA-KI Ruby thread. I bought the SA-10 from Safe and Sound in Chicopee, MA as an open box. The price was close to half price and less than the list price the SA-KI Ruby. There's still a listing for an open box SA-10 which comes with the full Marantz 5 year warranty. Ask for David Laventure as he was great to deal with. If anyone has any questions feel free to send a PM. Marantz SA-10 SACD/CD Player with USB DAC and Digital Inputs Open Box The SA-10 arrived from Safe and Sound in as new condition. One never knows with an open box purchase but not a single speck of dust or fingerprint. I can say without a doubt this is the heaviest disc player I've ever owned! It weighs a bit over 40 lbs. which is quite substantial for a disc player. Excellent build quality as well. Got it all setup and made sure all settings were correct as I'm using XLR. The first time I opened the disc drawer I was quite amazed how quiet it was. The first disc I played was Patricia Barber's Verse SACD which is my reference disc and one that's very familiar. I found the sound to be excellent without any glare or sibilance that was somewhat present with the 205. It wasn't prominent but still there with the SA-10 having a smoother presentation but still very detailed. Just played Bill Evans' Moon Beams XRCD and that also sounds excellent. Now playing is Phineas Newborn Jr's Harlem Blues XRCD. Very nice as well with the volume cranked! I'll be the first to admit I'm not well versed in reviewing high-end gear like the SA-10. But for the short time it's been playing I'm very impressed!
