    hi,
    Does anyone know whether the Marantz SA17 which replaced the SA1 is as good a CD/SACD player?

    I heard the SA1 player yesterday and I was absolutely astounded, I've never heard such a good player. The clarity & depth were amazing. I tried to recall my demo of the Meridian 588 and Copland CDA822 which I thought was superb, but the Marantz was so much more, as long as my memory isn't playing up. Will have to get a re demo of the Meridian/Copland.

    Only problem is now where can I find one at a reasonable price and sell my Arcam FMJ27A

    Regards
    John

    I used to own an SA-1, very good player. They occasionally turn up second hand and go for around £2500 (which is what I sold mine for). The SA-17 will come nowhere near - it is positioned alongside the CD-17M in the range.

    Theta Casablanca II with Superior DAC. I wanted to extend the superb resolution to the other 3.1 channels, which I did. However, this is now for sale too (£4.5k with a free PS Audio Power Plant if you're interested) :smashin:
