Chopin, Liszt, Debussy: Piano pieces - Miyuji Kaneko          (1 of 2 found this review helpful)
  June 14, 2014

I would like to bestow my own title of "SACD of the Year" and "Records To Die For (all time)" for this disc.

Not so in my opinion if you are talking about the sound quality of latest Marantz NA11S1 vs Sony 5400 or even the latest HAP-Z1ES. As a DAC on Marantz, file player on HAP-Z1ES or 5400 SACD Transport/Player, playing same DSD materials (downloads or DSD bit perfect files from SACD), the Marantz NA11S1 tops the Sony in quite a lot of areas. Even after ... more

I could not wait for this. Really getting the whole series. Most probably I will add another amp and speaker. Right now running 2x Mytek for 3 channel only (mostly Analogue Productions stuff) and my ears are craving for more. Probably a good addition will this extra channel. I would have to position the third speaker of course to make it rear ... more
