INTRODUCTION
• Dual Layer Disc
PRODUCT FEATURES
This unit can playback the outstanding sound performance in
Super Audio CD. This unit has the following unique features.
• Low-noise low-distortion filter circuit and highspeed HDAM SA2-type output amplifier with the
differential input type HDAM.
• Text information display function that can display
disc titles, track titles etc. in Super Audio CD.
• CD-R/CD-RW discs can be played.
It can contain both high quality stereo area and high quality
multi-channel area** information. And a double amount of
information can be stored on the disc thanks to the second
layer.
• Hybrid Layer Disc
Not only does this disc contain both high sound quality
stereo area and high sound quality multi-channel area**
information, it also has a CD layer in the second layer, so
it can be played on a CD player.
Hybrid Super Audio CD Disc
• Discs can be played using an external clock.
• Phase inversion of analog signal can be
performed.
1 CD layer that plays on any of your
existing CD players
High-Density layer containing:
2 - High sound quality stereo
3 - High sound quality multi-channel**
APPLICABLE DISCS TO THE UNIT
1. Super Audio CD
The number of tracks recorded may vary per layer. It will be
shown on the display window of the unit.
The Super Audio standard is based on Direct Stream
Digital (DSD) technology. This new direct-stream digital
format comprises a 1-bit system that has a digital sampling
frequency that is 64 times higher than that of conventional
audio CD. The results are spectacular: a frequency response
of over 100k Hz and a 120 dB dynamic range over the
entire audible spectrum. Mixed with as many of the original
frequencies as possible, the audio information audible for
human ears sounds much more natural.
All audible frequencies are, after all, embedded in the
frequency range as emitted by the sound source. A better
reproduction does not exist! For the first time your ears will
relive reality.
There are three types of Super Audio CDs.
• Single-layer Disc
• Dual-layer Disc
• Hybrid-layer Disc
Disc Types
Dual-layer Disc
Hybrid-layer Disc
Single-layer Disc
HD layer
HD layer
CD layer
HD layer
And each type may contain two areas of recorded information.
• High quality stereo area
• High quality multi-channel area**
• Single Layer Disc
** This unit is a stereo-only player, and so it cannot play
high-quality multi-channel audio areas. (It does not
recognize multi-channel areas.)
2. Audio CD (CDDA)
Audio CDs contain music tracks only.
3. CD-R / CD-RW
This unit can play back the CD-RW (ReWritable) discs as well
as ordinary Audio CD and CD-R (Recordable) discs.
• The CD-R and CD-RW discs should contain properlyrecorded TOC information so that they can be played back.
In CD recorders, the task of writing TOC information is
referred to as finalizing the disc. Discs that are not finalized
cannot be properly recognized as an Audio CD and played
back by regular CD players and Super Audio CD players.
For details, please read the instruction manual provided
with a CD recorder.
* TOC stands for Table Of Contents and contains information
such as the total number of tracks and total playing time
of the disc.
• This unit can play only the discs recorded in the CD-DA
format designed for music reproduction. Do not attempt to
play a disc containing other data, such as a CD-ROM for
PCs, on this unit.
• As the playback of a CD-RW disc necessitates partial
change of the player setup, it may take longer time for
reading the TOC information than when an Audio CD or
CD-R disc is played.
It can contain both high quality stereo area and high quality
multi-channel area** information.

PRECAUTIONS
INAPPROPRIATE PLACES FOR
INSTALLATION
To keep your player in perfect working order for the longest
possible time, avoid installing the player in the following
locations.
• Wherever it will be exposed to direct sunlight
• Wherever it will be close to a heater or other heat-radiating
appliance
• Wherever the humidity is high or ventilation is poor
• Wherever it is very dusty
• Wherever it will be subject to vibration
• On top of a rickety stand or in an unstable location which
is tilted at an angle
• In an audio rack with little space at the top and bottom
or other location where the heat dissipation will be
obstructed
To ensure proper heat dissipation, install the player while
leaving clearances between the player and wall or other
components, as shown in the figure below.

• In winter, droplets of water form on the insides of the
windows of a heated room: this is called condensation.
This player uses an optical lens, so the condensation may
form in the following cases.
- In a room immediately after the heating has been turned on
- In a room where the humidity level is high
- When the player has been suddenly brought from a cold
location into a warm room
Since, in cases like this, the track numbers may not be
read and the player is prevented from operating properly,
wait about 30 minutes, and then operate the player.
• This player may cause interference on a tuner or TV set. If this
is the case, place it further away from the tuner or TV set.
• Compact discs have much less noise than analog records
and hardly any noise is heard before play starts. Bear
in mind, therefore, that if the volume control on the
amplifier is set too high, you will risk damaging other audio
components.
• This player is designed to play Super Audio CD and
normal Audio CDs only. It cannot play CD-ROMs used
with personal computers, game CDs, video CDs or DVDs
(video/audio).
• We do not recommend the use of lens cleaners.
ENGLISH
BEFORE USING
NOTES ABOUT THE DISCS
* Handle the discs carefully so as not to scratch their
surfaces.
* Keep the surfaces of the discs clean at all times.
When cleaning the surfaces of discs, always be sure to use
the special cleaner and wipe the surfaces in the directions
shown in the figure below.
• Wipe the surface
radially from the
center.
ABOUT PLAYING COPY-CONTROLLED
CDS
Some copy-controlled CDs may not conform to official CD
standards. They are special discs and may not play on the
unit.
• Do not wipe the surface
in the circumferential
direction.
* Do not attach pieces of paper or stickers to the label
surfaces of the discs.
When a disc has a piece of plastic tape or rental CD label
with paste protruding from the edge or when a disc still
bears traces of sticky tape or adhesive labels, do not
attempt to play it. If such a disc is played on the CD player,
you may find that you cannot remove it or that some other
kind of malfunctioning may occur.
* Do not use discs which come in special shapes.
Do not attempt to play heart-shaped or octagonal discs
or discs with any other special shapes. You may find
that you cannot remove them or that some other kind of
malfunctioning may occur in the player.
* Use discs which satisfy the CD standards such as
those with the “CD logo” or “
” mark on their disc
label surfaces.
No guarantees are made for playback if discs which do not
satisfy the appropriate CD standards are used.
Similarly, no guarantees are made for their sound quality
even if it is possible to play such discs.
* To protect your discs from damage, avoid placing
them in the following locations.
• Where they will be exposed to direct sunlight or where
they will be close to a heater or other heat-radiating
appliance
• Where the humidity level is high or it is very dusty
• Near a window or other such location where they may be
exposed to rain
* Get into the habit of putting the discs back in their
cases after use.

* Noise shaping is a type of digital feedback used in
the algorithms for oversampling. Digital feedback
improves the linearity of bass sounds and the noise
characteristics of the audio frequency band. However,
this digital feedback is still feedback nonetheless.
Generally, in amplifiers and other equipment, the sound
quality changes based on the amount of feedback. Low
feedback is said to result in poor audio characteristics
but good sound.
Although no measurement differences are shown in the

Filter Selection Table
This unit is equipped with the “PEC 777f2” filter, developed with an improved algorithm from the digital filter for CD playback “SA11S1” (Phase Error Compensation 777 filter) that uses Marantz original DSP.
When playing a super audio CD, the D/A converter internal filter is used.
The filter has 3 types of built-in characteristics for both Audio CDs and Super Audio CDs, and the characteristics for each are shown
in the table below. Change these settings according to your own personal preference.
Filter type
Audio CD
Super Audio CD
FILTER 1
This filter impulse response has a symmetrical and
very short pre-echo and post echo characteristics.
The phase response is absolutely linear. It
reproduce all information of the recording in detail.
The sound image is very profound, clear and very
nice to listen to.
Filter 1 does not touch the digital data stream
coming from the Super Audio CD. It is the direct
mode. The original source data is reproduced
without any alteration. The maximum available
bandwidth will be used. In combination with
Marantz amplifiers this filter will provide the most
accurate reproduction.
FILTER 2
This filter impulse response is asymmetrical and
has a post echo which is slightly longer than the
pre-echo. The characteristic is close to the sound
of analog - it is well balanced between detailed and
harmonic sound.
Filter 2 dampens frequencies in the digital data
stream from the Super Audio CD which are
over the 100kHz to lower the bandwidth.In
addition, operations within the D/A convertor are
asymmetrical with priority given to resolution.
FILTER 3
This filter impulse response is symmetrical and
has a very short pre-echo and post-echo. It
provides high sound definition with the most detail
along with a comfortable playback balance.
Filter 3 dampens frequencies in the digital data
stream from the Super Audio CD which are over
the 100kHz to reduce the bandwidth. Operations
with the D/A convertor are fully symmetrical.
Note:
Select the right filter by auditioning. The correct one will depend on your system and your personal preference.

OPERATION
USING A MASTER CLOCK
GENERATOR WHEN PLAYING DISCS
The master clock generator
7 Using a master clock generator for playback
Should you elect to use an outboard master clock generator,
be sure to select one that has an extremely accurate clock to
avoid degrading the sonic performance of this unit.
In digital devices such as CD players or super audio CDs,
there is a process that samples or restores the analog
signal.
In order to conduct this process, a clock signal (sampling
frequency) is used.
A master clock generator is an oscillation device that makes
this clock signal.
The clock signal output by the crystal oscillator built into
this unit is extremely accurate, enabling you to fully enjoy
high quality sound playback. However, you can also perform
playback using the clock signal output from an external
master clock generator, to enjoy the difference in the sound
that the master clock generator can provide.
In recent years, research has found that the difference in
clock signals causes differences in tone quality. In response
to this finding, many companies have released master clock
generators.
Generally speaking, the more precise the clock signal time
base is, the closer it is to the natural time base of the sound,
thus enabling the reproduction of higher fidelity sound.
Therefore many master clock generators insist that they are
capable of outputting a highly precise clock signal.
Anyway, the different clock seems give differences sound
tone. This unit offers the possibility of enjoying the change.
The frequency of the clock signal that can be input into this
unit is 44.1, 88.2, or 176.4kHz. Use a master clock generator
that is capable of outputting these signals.

OPERATION
ABOUT BALANCED JACKS
ANALOG OUTPUT CONNECTOR
PHASE SWITCHING
q The balanced output connector uses a XLR connector.
w The XLR connector for professional use is internally wired
in either of the following two systems.
1. USA system (Pin w = COLD, Pin e = HOT)
COLD
w q
e
GND
HOT
2. European system (Pin w = HOT, Pin e = COLD)
HOT
w q
e
GND
COLD
e This unit uses the 1. USA system.
When a preamp or main amplifier adopting the European
system is connected using a cable with XLR balanced
connectors, the reproduced signal may be inverted of
phase.
In this case, refer to “ANALOG OUTPUT CONNECTOR
PHASE SWITCHING”, and set so that the correct phase
is used.
By digitally processing audio signals read by this unit, it is
possible to perform phase inversion without changing the
tone quality.
Inverted signals are output from the UNBALANCED output
connector, and the BALANCED output connector interchanges
between HOT and COLD signals.
As the USA system has been adopted for the BALANCED
output connector, if the amp or other device used with this unit
is a European system device, a phase inversion cable would
normally need to be used to playback with the correct phase.
However, by pressing the INV. PHASE button on this unit, you
can listen to the correct phase without replacing the cable.
Moreover, if a disc that has been recorded with the incorrect
phase is being played, you can play it in the correct phase by
pressing the INV. PHASE button.
To change the mode
Every time the INV. PHASE button on the front of this
unit is pressed, the phase of the signal being output
from the ANALOG OUTPUTS connector (BALANCED,
UNBALANCED) is inverted. The indicator flashes during
inverted playback.
Correct phase
Inverted phase
Caution:
• Phase switching is only possible when the LCD display is
turned on.
• If switching is performed during playback, sound output
is stopped for approximately one second to prevent the
occurrence of unnecessary noise.
• The information after this operation is stored by the last
memory function even after the power is switched OFF.

TROUBLE SHOOTING
If you think a malfunction has occurred, first check the points listed below. The problem is likely to have been caused by a simple
operational error or a connection problem. If the problem cannot be corrected even after carrying out the following checks, consult
your dealer or nearest Marantz sales office or service counter.
•
The disc fails to rotate.
•
A Super Audio CD cannot be played.
1. Is the mains lead plugged in properly?
1. Is the disc scratched, dirty or warped?
2. Is the POWER switch ON?
2. Is the amplifier’s input selector set to digital? (Digital
audio signal will not be output when a Super Audio CD is
played.)
3. Is the disc placed in the correct position on the disc tray?
4. Is the disc placed properly with the label side facing up?
5. Is the disc dirty?
6. Is the disc scratched?
3. Is the disc a Super Audio CD multi-channel only disc?
(This unit does not support Super Audio CD multichannel.)
7. Is the disc warped?
8. Is EXT. CLOCK (BNC terminal) connected? Also, is it set
correctly?
•
The disc is rotating but no sound is heard.
•
A CD-R/CD-RW disc cannot be played.
1. Is the disc placed upside down?
2. Is the disc contains properly written TOC?
3. Is the recorded information in an audio (CD-DA) format?
1. Are the amplifier and speakers connected properly?
2. Is the amplifier switch ON?
3. Is the amplifier’s function or selector switch set to “CD” or
“AUX” or such (to whatever you have connected this unit
to)?
•
Copy control CDs (CDs with copy guard) are special discs
that do not comply with current CD standards. Marantz
cannot guarantee the ability to play such discs on your CD
player.
4. Is the amplifier’s volume control set at the minimum
level?
When normal CDs can be played without a problem and
problems occur only when playing these special discs, it
is not a problem with this unit.
* Occasionally, sound may stop if the equipment is installed
near an air conditioning unit or refrigerator. If this problem
occurs, either switch the main power off and on again, or
press the OPEN/CLOSE button to open and close the tray,
then try playing the disc again.
•
The disc stops in mid-operation.
The sound drops out or noise is heard.
A specific CD cannot be played
Please ask the seller of the copy control CD for detailed
information regarding copy control CDs.
•
1. Is the disc dirty?
The unit makes a clicking sound when the tray
closes
This is the adhesion click of the clamper for securing the
disc. This does not cause any problem in using the unit.
2. Is the disc scratched?
3. Is the disc warped?
* In the case of a CD-R or CD-RW disc, this problem may
occur when the conditions under which its data was
originally written were substandard or when the quality of
the disc itself is poor.
* This condition may occur in Mixed-Mode CDs, CD Extra,
and other discs that have CDDA format mixed with other
data.
Noise may also be heard momentarily when skipping
tracks.
•
Remote control operation is not possible.
1. Is the transmitter of the remote control unit pointed
correctly at the remote sensor on the front of the player
(this unit)?
Or is there an obstruction between the transmitter and the
remote sensor?
2. Are the batteries in the remote control unit exhausted?
3. Is there another strong light (from a window, etc.) striking
the Super Audio CD player’s remote sensor?
