Marantz America announced two new leading-edge audio players, the SA8004 SACD Player ($999), which replaces the SA8003, and the CD5004 CD Player ($349), replacing the CD5003. The SA8004 will be available in August 2010, the CD5004 and will be available in July.

Marantz was one of the first manufacturers to debut a Super Audio CD player, and the company's new SA8004 continues its leadership posture in the category. Featuring HDAM SA2 processing, the SA8004 is an ultimate quality audio disc player that features a super-precise new drive mechanism, with three rear panel digital inputs (COAX, OPTICAL, USB), as well as a front-panel USB. The USB inputs can act as a D/A Converter for connectivity with iPod® Digital and other digital sources such as a PC or laptop. Users enjoy local control of Apple iPod and iPhone, with SPDIF output of iPod music files and MP3/WMA playback.

The new Marantz CD5004 CD Player features a Super Audio CD Grade 192kHz/24-bit Cirrus Logic CS4392 D/A converter, HDAM SA2 processing and more to provide superior playback of CD and CD-R/RW, MP3 and WMA files.

The new Marantz components continue the sleek symmetrical design featured throughout the company's product line, featuring the classic Marantz star mark, rock-solid construction and a unified cosmetic designed to complement the finest audio/video systems.

“As an increasing number of people use their PCs, laptops, or other digital sources as transport vehicles for listening to their favorite music, they are also accepting compromises in overall audio performance. With internal upconversion technologies to improve the sound of today's high-resolution audio formats found in our new audio components, we are proving that the audio quality and power of digital music does not need to suffer. Even in today's MP3 music environment, our customers want the best sounding and most impactful home audio systems whether they are listening to a digital file or redbook CD.”
