New Premium Products from Marantz are always reason for the audiophile community to celebrate. And the new 14 Series Special Edition thrusts the audio experience to new levels.

The SA-14S1 Special Edition includes a heavy 5mm thick aluminium top lid and highly rigid feet to minimize vibration as well as an oversized Toroidal transformer and a strong power supply section that generates the cleanest of power to eliminate component cross-contamination. This is the perfect platform reference-quality sound. It includes a DAC-Mode that’s almost identical in functionality to that of the revolutionary, award-winning NA-11S1. It has optical and coaxial digital input as well as USB-B for direct connection to a PC. This means it provides direct high-definition audio streaming from your PC so you can make use of the high quality DAC and the high quality audio output stage with HDAM-SA2 modules. That’s why, importantly, this newly developed player also includes our latest ground/signal isolator technology, to virtually eliminate PC noise. The player can operate as a soundcard for your PC and the USB-B port works in asynchronous mode to support not only 192kHz / 24bits but also the DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz for maximized versatility and performance. It even has a USB input on the front to play MP3, WAV, and AAC formats, and, of course it’s iPod/iPhone compatible. This is Super Audio CD quality in the sublime, and more. Much more.

Available in black or champagne colour, the new PM-14S1 Special Edition is the epitome of extreme quality and is, quite simply, a masterpiece. As you would expect from such an elite amp, it includes exceptional quality components such as Toroidal transformer and subsystems throughout its construction. The heavy 5mm thick aluminium top lid and highly rigid feet minimize vibration to guarantee purest audio signal treatment. In addition, it incorporates improved customized components, Marantz own developed HDAMs and the use of a more efficient electrical signal path. These elevate the audio quality to an even more sublime level. The PM-14S1 Special Edition comes with a remote controller, which features a stylish black anodized aluminium top, and which can also control the SA-14S1 Special Edition Player. The final touch of elegance is supplied by the special Marantz-made solid copper speaker terminals, for effortless and powerful signalling to your loudspeakers. This is luxury to the extreme.
