I replaced a Marantz SA11 S3 with an SA10 in my system consisting of a McIntosh C48, MC452, Bryston Mini T's and a REL Gibraltar G2. In my opinion it is the finest sounding component that I've ever bought.

Hi duffy1212, I have the SA11S3 in one system. Regarding SACD performance I have no comments, excellent reproduction. However Red Book CD is of lower performance. How would you compare SA 10 to Sa113S on Red Book CD performance only? Many thanks

Regarding the transport, I have had no issues with it. The indentation in the disk drawer is a little shallow, so a little more care is needed to seat the CD properly. If its not quite right it will give you a "no disk" message. The performance with Red Book cd's is where I've noticed the biggest difference. PCM is up converted to DSD in a manner which I believe is similar to how the PS Audio Direct Stream DAC functions. I have to admit that I am not that knowledgeable about the particulars. I do know that it sounds fantastic.
