Marantz SA-12SE Premium Series
Marantz SA-12SE Premium Series
CDs, SACDs and Beyond
The SA-12SE goes so much further than just disc playback: it's also a fully-functional digital-to-analogue converter for music stored on a home computer, as well as having conventional digital inputs for existing source components. Those conventional inputs - optical and coaxial - can handle your music files up to 192kHz/24bit. The USB-DAC supports all files up to DSD11.2.
More Than a DAC
Built with an integrated DAC, the SA-12SE features an all-new disc transport mechanism that re-engineers the digital to analogue conversion. Taking full advantage of the 1-bit conversion technology, the SA-12SE incorporates innovative new filtering and up-conversion, providing a simple yet elegant solution.
Marantz Musical Mastering: MMM-Stream and MMM-Conversion
At the heart of digital audio in the SA-12SE lies DSD. PCM and DXD inputs are up-converted to DSD at 11.2MHz using the proprietary MMM-Stream converter within the player, and the high-frequency signal produced is processed by the unique MMM-Conversion stage, used in place of a conventional DAC, to produce the analog output.
Built to Perform
Like the complementary PM-12SE integrated amplifier, the SA-12SE Super Audio CD player is constructed to the highest standards, with a front panel made from thick, heavy, non-magnetic aluminum to eliminate interference. Single layer nickel-plated matching copper RCA terminals in the SA-12SE outperform the terminals of competitors and offer an exemplary listening experience.
