Thumbs up 8802a w/SACD

With my oppo 203 and 8802a have really made my SACD shine. I did a side by side test with Getz Gilberto on CD and SACD on my old rig and noticed no difference.

with the new units in place it was daylight and dark. Im thinking it is the DACs in the 8802a ?????

The DACs in the Marantz are very good indeed Doug.
Do you play in Pure Direct Mode?

I just did the test: Marantz as DAC/Pre against my Halgorythme pre/Burmester DAC, and the gap is not extremely wide (there is a noticeable difference though).
Source was my cable TV box (I guess 192kpbs, maybe 256).
With CDs it is more audible.

But SACDs offer me 5 channels.
It is a choice between extremely high fidelity from 2 channels or very high fidelity from 5 channels.
What I play depends on the music genre.
