    Product Description

    Product Descriptions:

    espite its relatively modest price, the SA-11S2 features a silky-smooth aluminum SACDM-1 transport designed and built by Marantz, a fully balanced analog audio stage utilizing Marantz's HDAM SA2 amplification modules, a pair of "high-accuracy" Seiko NPC monophonic SM5866A5 Super Audio D/A converters, Marantz's phase-error-compensation PEC777f2 digital filter, a "high precision" quartz clock with linear voltage regulation, and a copper-shielded toroidal transformer. Rounding out an attractive-looking package that looks and feels as if it costs far more than the asking price are a copper-plated chassis with a double-layered bottom, a heavy, vibration-resistant top plate, and a thick, attractively sculpted front panel.

    The SA-11S2 has three selectable digital filters, as well as a selectable Noise Shaper, DC filter (with a corner frequency of 1.7Hz), and Phase Inversion (Polarity). The filters differ in how they manage the trade-off between ultrasonic rolloff and timing precision. They also differ in how they manage CD and SACD playback. Filter 1 in both cases is the most traditional; for CDs it provides linear-phase behavior and a sharp rolloff above 20kHz; for SACDs, it provides the widest ultrasonic bandwidth. Filter 2 results in an asymmetrical impulse response with CDs, with the bulk of the energy occurring after the impulse, which is more like an analog system; with SACDs, it provides a sharper rolloff above 100kHz and is optimized for resolution. Filter 3 rolls off the CD's top octave in favor of a shorter impulse response; for SACDs it balances resolution against time-domain performance.
