The Complete Digital Music Player
The SACD 30n is built to meet all the requirements of the modern audiophile who wants to combine a large digital music collection with the leading online music services. The Marantz SACD 30n marries a classic premium SA-CD / CD player with a modern digital source’s hub/preamp. It plays hi-resolution files including FLAC HD and DSD from your home network, local USB storage, and online sources such as streaming services and Internet radio. It features HEOS streaming, voice and multi-room support, and DAC functionality, as well as Apple AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth integration. The SACD 30n is future-proofed, accepting file formats all the way up to 11.2Mhz quad-DSD and 384kHz/32-bit PCM via USB-B/USD-DAC.
The Most Musical, Accurate, Detailed Sound
The SACD 30n is built on its own discrete circuit board, the Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Module, or HDAM. By custom-curating hundreds of individual parts, rather than adopting an off-the-shelf solution, Marantz HDAM technology significantly outperforms standard integrated circuits to create the unique musicality you always expect from Marantz.
Transport Mechanism: A history of excellence
Marantz launched its first CD player – the original CD-63 – in 1982. We’ve continued to innovate ever since. At the heart of the SACD 30n is a new, innovative SACDM-3L transport mechanism, engineered solely for the best possible performance when playing SA-CDs, CDs, and music stored on data discs. This new mechanism promises exceptional sound quality from conventional CD and SACD discs and allows listeners to create their own high-resolution audio compilation discs using a computer DVD burner. While the SACD/CD source is not being used, the power supply for the disc drive is turned off to avoid noise or interference.
Marantz Musical Mastering
DSD is the heart of Marantz musical sound reproduction for digital sources in the SACD 30n.
PCM and DXD inputs are up-converted to DSD at 11.2MHz using the proprietary MMM-Stream converter within the player. The high-frequency signal produced is processed by the unique MMM-Conversion stage, used in place of a conventional DAC, to generate the analogue output. The MMM-Stream section of the process replaces the oversampling filters normally used in digital to analogue conversion and allows the implementation of the Marantz Musical Mastering filtering.
Two system clocks ensure the most accurate up-conversion of the incoming signal, whether it’s from disc or the digital inputs, ranging from 44.1kHz to 384kHz. This unique configuration is tuned with, and for, ultimate sound quality reproduction with a highly accurate signal using dual 32bits floating point DSP for MMM-Stream. Sigma Delta Modulation allows a pure DSD-standard signal to be passed to the MMM-conversion section in the form of a very high-frequency stream of pulses.
The design of the DSD-to-analogue filter feeds into the Marantz HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Modules) in the output stage for optimal sound quality.
High-quality headphone amplifier
Enjoy music directly from your headphones with a completely redesigned, high-quality headphone stage that features a dedicated amplifier module using exclusive Marantz HDAM-SA2 circuitry with exceptional SNR (Signal-Noise-Ratio). To work with a wider variety of headphones, the gain factor can be adjusted to three established presets (Low/Mid/High), making it possible to drive low to high impedance headphones seamlessly. If no headphone is connected to the unit, the headphone amplifier is turned off to avoid noise or interference.
Built to Last and Perform
Like the MODEL 30 Integrated Amplifier, the SACD 30n is constructed to the highest standards. A solid steel chassis is complemented with sturdy side panels constructed from thick, heavy, non-magnetic aluminum and a rigid steel top cover eliminate interference. Robust, brass machined independent analogue output terminals for fixed and variable ensure the best signal possible.
