SA-10 technology/build quality is impressive. I play mostly classical, so MQA not a big deal for me (e.g., more inclined toward Qobuz than Tidal).
I decided to try it based on the handful of reviews I read and the Marantz aesthetic of champagne color components.
I got the matching PM-10 integrated and I don't have any regrets in the few months I've been using them.

There are a lot of reviews on the Marantz UK site:

south: Mark Levinson No. 52 pre, Bricasti M28 amps, Lumin A1, Oppo BDP-205, Pioneer CT-43, Sony SS-AR1 Speakers, Audioquest Dragon PCs, Audioquest speaker cables, Audioquest WEL ICs, HB Power Design Powerslave Star Galaxy power distributor

north: Marantz PM-10, Marantz SA-10, Bluesound Node 2i, Harbeth 40.2, Audioquest WEL IC on the SA-10, BJC coaxial from Bluesound to the SA-10, Audioquest speaker cables, Acrolink/Esoteric 7N-PC9700 power cables
