Marantz SACD 30N SACD Player/Streamer
The SACD 30n network audio streamer and SACD player draws on the Marantz proprietary SACDM-3L transport mechanism that has been engineered solely for the best possible performance when playing SACDs, CDs and music stored on data discs, says the manufacturer. Furthermore, the SACD 30n adds streaming as well as a USB-DAC, along with a built-in pre-amp and so offers a complete digital source hub.
The unit's streaming chops comes by way of the HEOS platform and so can stream FLAC files from 44.1kHz to 192kHz at up to 24-bit resolution, DSD 2.8MHz and DSD 5.6MHz, ALAC (Apple Lossless) and MP3 files from major streaming providers, including Amazon Music HD, Tidal and others. HEOS Built-in also adds voice-enabled technologies, including Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple Siri for totally intuitive control over playback.
SACD 30n relies on Marantz's proprietary Marantz Musical Mastering (MMM-Stream converter and MMM-Conversion stage) for digital analogue conversion, as found in the brand's 10 and Ki series. PCM inputs are up-converted to DSD at 11.2MHz, while two system clocks are employed to ensure the most accurate up-conversion of the incoming signal, whether it's from the disc or digital inputs, ranging from 44.1kHz to 384kHz.The DSD-to-analogue converter then feeds into the Marantz HDAM in the output stage.
Finally, the headphone amplifier used in the SACD 30n features its own dedicated amplifier module using exclusive Marantz HDAM-SA2 circuitry. The head amp's gain can be adjusted through low, mid and high, enabling it to be paired with even the most impedance-hungry headphones.
