The computer recognises the Network Audio Player as an external soundcard, completely bypassing its own lower quality audio electronics. Any digital audio formats that can be played from the computers own media player can be processed by the NA8005, even DSD the native file format for SACD, in 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz resolution. That is the most direct way to enjoy excellent, studio-like quality. And users can also stream the high resolution FLAC and DSD files most conveniently via the network connection as well. Digital and coaxial inputs round up the extreme connection versatility.

Based on the highly-acclaimed Reference Class NA-11S1, the NA8005 claims to offer new levels of high-quality music reproduction for today’s demanding yet price-conscious audiophile. The audio circuitry employs Marantz’s exclusive HDAM and HDAM-SA2 in a hybrid configuration to achieve low noise and high speed. Marantz engineers have fine-tuned the player’s reproduction of musical details and spatial expression by using thorough isolation and filtering to shut out noise that enters sound from a PC.
