The last sacd player you’ll ever need!
First, I purchased a model 30 integrated amplifier. Which is excellent! Then, secondly I purchased the matching sacd player and I’m glad I did! My HiFi dealer got myself an awesome deal and deposit paid. A black one was ordered and the sound is the best. The model 30 up samples normal CDs, plays sacds, may used as a dac, and has network streaming all built in. Excellent sound quality that rivals the very best!

Wonderful SACD CD player/streamer
I am very pleased with the SACD 30n I recently purchased. My CD's sound better than ever and I would go as far as to say they sound more like SACD's and SACD's are fabulous. I'm hearing details from both types of disks I've never heard. The streaming features are first rate. I would recommend this player for anyone that is serious about their music.

Impeccable sound. HiRez material really shines!
My 30n replaces an SA11S1. At least 10 years of tech forward. I also have an SA11S2 that is my headphone system source. The S2 trounces the S1 in the sound department and afterall that is what we really care about. First source I listened to was local HBCU college radio (JAZZ station on the internet. Sounded really good and no drop outs that I have suffered with other internet radio implementations. Drop outs can be caused anywhere from the eqpt at the station all the way to your speakers. A large buffer can alleviate much of this and evidently the 30n has that. Next up were various DVD, DAD and HDAD discs. The 30n WILL NOT PLAY THESE DISCS. On the other hand it played a RR HRX DVD-R Wav file disc flawlessly. My 10 yr old Oppo 95 would never do that when it was new and it was one of the reasons I bought it. I did most of my inital listening with the HRX sampler and it is stunning played thru the 30n. Just for the record I like filter 1. I did not read what this filter supposedly does or doesnt do so as not to be biased. To me the sound with F1 inserted is almost perfect. What will Marantz have for me to listen to in another 10 yrs and will I be able to hear it? Here are some nits I have to pick. Remote is not back lit and the characters are VERY HARD TO SEE. OM is not included. You must down load. On line warranty registration is a PITA. No video/monitor out and the display is very hard to see from across the room. Set up menus in machine do not follow the OM manual in all cases. Very confusing. OM pdf file does not function properly or like the AV7701 manual that I have. I could turn off network but I could not turn of blue tooth. Machine will not play DAD, HDAD, or DVD. My $250 Sony Blu-ray player will. Power cord thrown in the box as an afterthought. Everything else comes in a nice box. Why include 50cent interconnects in a $2600 disc player.

An AMAZING unit... but with some weird behaviors !
First time Marantz buyer here since the late 60's through 70's !!! As a CD and SACD player, SACD30n sounds absolutely amazingly. I also use the HEOS app w/ Amazon Music HD. HEOS can use a lot of improvement as its search function and UI are rather weak.. so I go back to Amazon Music APP to find the albums/tracks first then to HEOS to find it, hopefully. Would also be nice if HEOS displays the track metadata of CD (Gracenote? / SACD's. Using the USB-B DAC input, it worked FLAWLESSLY with a laptop hard wired. DSD and PCM files played very well and sounds incredible! HOLISTIC ! Using both Win10 and Mac laptops + Audirvana, Audirvana found SACD Network UPnP but only plays music with PCM files. DSD64 / 2.8 Mhz files can be streamed and I know the SACD30n is receiving it from the front panel display but NO MUSIC comes out. I attached a digital COAX cable at the back of this unit to an external DAC and both PCM & DSD signals are output from COAX to my DAC (I don't think DSD digital out on COAX is possible or legal ??). UPnP is also limited to DSD64/2.8Mhz ?? Thought all its DSD is up to DSD128/5.6 Mhz with up to DSD256/11.2Mhz available to USB-B... See pics attached to show DSD 2.8Mhz being transmitted to my external DAC by SACD30n's Digital Out. Bluetooth worked great but it would have been so much better to have BT5.x supporting LDAC and AptxHD codecs to make it up to date. Airplay was awesome and so was Alexa Streaming (but music is only limited to 44.1khz using Alexa Streaming even tough I have Amazon Music HD subscription.). Overall, I am still THRILLED but would be nice to get some issues resolved.. starting with HEOS app that requires significant improvements in search and displaying CD and SACD meta data, UPnP DSD issues (won't play DSD files but outputs DSD digital signals on the digital out!!). Finally, I registered my unit online and got a message stating I will be getting the Explorations in Sound Volume 1 and 2 as well as a link to download the digital files within a week..That was about three weeks ago. I asked Sound United customer support for assistance by chat and email. No response so far.

This one is special....
Just got this a little over a week ago and now have it fully broken in. In short, it's great and easily worth the money. It's wonderful sounding and works very well operationally with the functions I've used so far. It replaced the Marantz ND8006 and Denon DCD-1600NE for me. I was using the ND8006 sparingly to playback hi-rez music files via its front USB port and the Denon to playback SACDs primarily (though I also burned hi-rez files to DVD-Rs and played those back on it too. I'm big into SACDs and probably have several hundred (I never counted them), and it's still my preferred way to buy and listen to music.

I got the Denon I think in October of last year and have had the ND8006 since about mid 2018. Before the Denon, I was using the Marantz SA8005 for SACD playback. Firstly, the Denon is extremely impressive and bested the SA8005 in every area save for tone quality (presumably because of the HDAMs in the SA8005). The Denon has great clarity/separation and really impressively low jitter, and features very neutral leaning tone quality and very natural/uncolored sound. Compared to the 30N, its highs are slightly brighter, sharper, and more lively, i.e. have just a tad more 'bite', where as the 30N's highs are slightly rolled off (though there is still plenty of treble). But the 30N has equally good clarity/separation/balance and impressively low jitter also, but where it shines and bests the Denon -- IMO at least -- is in its great tone quality due to level 3 HDAMs it has in its output stage. Its sound has an addictive listening quality where I don't want to stop listening to it, even after hours of listening. It's very special in that sense.

While the ND8006 is very good sounding (maybe excellent sounding even), the 30N is better in every way. It's hard to describe the difference, but in a nutshell, the sound of the 30N is a bit tighter and truer sounding with better clarity/separation and with lower jitter and better tonality in the sense that it is a little less 'colored' and more natural sounding than the ND8006.

The SACD playback of the 30N is superb. The discs load fairly quickly and the drive mechanism is impressively smooth and quiet (quieter than the Denon which was respectably quiet and smooth). There is a really low noise floor and quiet background from the players output also. The MMM also works really well, and I hear absolutely no loss or degradation of conversion of 64x DSD from SACDs to 256x to be sent to the DAC. It works really well, and has every bit of that raw, open, analog-like sound you get from a really good SACD. The same can be said for hi-rez PCM files, which also the MMM does an excellent job with. The MMM (Marantz Musical Mastering) really does seem to be a great and logical system, and Marantz's implementation of keeping all conversion/upsampling in the same sample rate family, with two separate clocks, is definitely the right way to do it.

I was somewhat hesitant about the MMM in the Marantz, but I realized it works based on upsampling -- not downsampling. With upsampling, especially in the same sample rate 'family' as MMM does, it should not induce/cause any degradation to DSD 64x or 128x sources. Or PCM sources (of either 44.1Khz or 48Khz multiples). And indeed based on what I'm hearing, there is no problem at all. Degradation issues arise when downsampling or converting from one sample rate 'family' to another, and that has all been purposefully avoided here with MMM. So if anyone is concerned about that as I was, they should not be. Now, I have not heard the SA-10 or the SA-KI, which also use MMM, so I can't compare the 30N to either (to see if their implementation is better or about the same), but I'm as particular and sensitive to these kinds of subtle sonic issues as anyone and can confidently say there is no issue with it and it works really well.

The USB flash drive input (located on the rear of the unit) works very well, and has the same screen, text and user interface as the ND8006. The input also accepts drives formatted with NTFS (something the ND8006's does not feature). The screen is fairly large, as is the text making it easy to read. The operation is fairly smooth and flawless, provided you don't try to give it too many commands before it has finished processing previous commands. But once you get the feel for how quickly it finishes responding to each command and when you can move to the next command, as with the ND8006, it works very nicely. The sound is excellent, but I did find sonic (and operational speed) differences between the drives I used on the ND8006. So that probably applies to the 30N also (I'm using the same drive I was last using on the ND8006 and haven't used/tried any others on it yet).

The 30N also allows hi-rez file playback burned on to DVD-R discs, which also works very well, but the same files played back burned to DVD or via the USB input sounded the same to my ears. Even with the files burned to a DVD-R disc, the screen read out still gives the full text, etc. just the same, which is nice.

The remote control it comes with is also really nice and of high quality. It's made of or at least has a metal base and is really solidly built (and has some heft and weight to it). The button layout is virtually the same as the ND8006, but the buttons are firmer and of higher quality. The remote also has a disc tray open/close button, which neither the SA8005, ND8006 or Denon DCD-1600NE have (a major negative of those players, IMO).

The build quality of the unit is really excellent, and weighing in at just over 30lbs it's impressive and solid. The look of the front face plate is somewhat untraditional, but I think it looks just fine. I have no complaints with how it looks (I have the black colored one). The back RCA jacks for the fixed and variable output look to be exactly the same (with the same spacing) as those on the ND8006, which are a very high quality dark gold plated brass (presumably), for the fixed output at least. The jacks for the fixed output are larger, stick out a bit further and appear to be of of higher quality (I have mine hooked up using the 'fixed' jacks as I did with the ND8006). One knock on the Denon was I thought the RCA jacks should have been higher quality for the unit's price point. They appear to be the same ones they use on their lower end models. They function fine though, and them being somewhat lower quality may or may not affect the sound quality.

Overall, and most importantly, this thing sounds exceptionally good. It has that intangible 'magic' to the tonality, balance, clarity, etc. that makes you not want to stop listening. Operationally it works very well too (for the features I've used). Marantz really hit it out of the park with this unit.
