The Marantz SA8004 is a high-end CD/media player. The SA8004 plays CDs, MP3s and WMAs, as well as media from iPods/iPhones and PCs (via the front/rear USB ports). A standard feature on Marantz' mid/high end CD players, the Cirrus Logic CS4398 D/A converter ensures that even your compressed MP3/WMA files will sound like analog. The HDAM-SA2 circuit, another standard Marantz feature, enhances this analog reproduction. Marantz' Xyron loader allows the circuitry to produce a more accurate data stream, which means that your audio will be as high-quality as possible, even from digital sources. The dual PLL (Phase Locked Loop) circuits synthesize the frequency of your audio, so that it will not break up when things get loud. The SA8004 has pretty much the same specs as the Marantz SA8003 CD player, but with no remote control and gold-plated components as opposed to copper-shielded components. The SA8004 also closely resembles the Marantz CD5004 CD player, but has more connectivity and no aluminum/reinforced resin front panel (which the CD5004 shares with the SA8003). The Marantz SA8004 CD/media player comes with a three year warranty.
