    This is the best cd player, period. I can listen to it for hours as it is a very neutral player. Compared to the Cambridge 851c and The Exposure 3010s2 cd players which I currently own, the sa8005 has absolute tonal balance, remarkable details and resolution not just the highs -the mid and bass too. I can hear defined bass notes even at low volume, no irritating bumped up mid at high volume. It does not require any run in nor special interconnect cables whatsoever to make it sound "right". I intended to use this Marantz as a secondary player as it was half the price of my other ca851c and the exposure. This decision has changed, the sa8005 is the only player I can live with for now.

    • Well defined bass , Very Accurate tone , Perfect balance across high,mid and low , Coherent, never congested.
    • Enclosure deserves better,it is indentical to other lower models that are made in China , Tray opening and play response is slow
