Marantz Musical Mastering
In 2004, the original SA-11S1 was the first ever SACD player to offer selectable digital filter algorithms. These were developed by Marantz to improve CD audio quality significantly. In 2012 the SA-11S3 and in 2013, the NA-11S1 continues this pioneering role with the advanced selectable digital filtering technologies that were previously available only in professional recording studios. As these digital filters are all about music, we call this technology Marantz Musical Mastering.
There are two filter characteristics to cater for different tastes, and each handles even the minutest of detail with loving care in the digital audio signal . Making standard counted sound as incredible as high-resolution audio, and transforming new media files into the finest of high-resolution playback.
No compromises are made here. As today’s new media not only comes in 44.1kHz/16 bit resolution – similar to the CD format, Marantz also developed the digital filters to handle signals of up to 192kHz/24bit resolution. Enabling it to make the most of high-resolution files and reproducing music with stunning clarity.
This is supported by a superior DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) for the purest possible conversion of the digital signal processed by Marantz Musical Mastering.
