Marantz SA-11S1 SACD player

 Then I bought a used Marantz SA-11S1 sacd player to check it out since it was a well reviewed equipment.  It turned out to be too "soft" for me, although very 'clean', it lacked the 'oomph' when compared to my old TEAC VRDS-10 connected to an outboard DAC - the Promitheus Audio DAC.  Hence, after just a few weeks, I disposed of the Marantz without any loses and it was sold within an hour of posting the ad online.  I miss its excellent finish and solid build rarely found on lesser cd players nowadays.
