”The focus is completely on the music, and not the 'hi-fi-ness', which can only be a good thing.” ’Hi-Fi News’ – Outstanding Product. Tested with matching Model 30 amplifier.

All your digital music, in one place

For the highest level of sound quality, from all your digital sources, the SACD 30n is a great place to start. Disc playback for CD and SACD is covered, as is a wide range of streaming. With wi-fi, Bluetooth and AirPlay 2 on board, all your favourite services, such as Spotify, TIDAL, Apple Music and Amazon Prime Music are easy to access. There’s vTuner for Internet Radio and DLNA compatible network streaming, too. You can even use the SACD 30n as a DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) by simply plugging your other digital sources into the back.

Master-tuned for reference sound quality
Painstakingly developed over three years, the SACD 30n took hundreds of hours of Marantz’s finest technicians to produce this labour of love. The SACD 30n is built to a dedicated, discrete circuit design, meaning it uses dozens of carefully selected components and a dedicated headphone amp, rather than combining them together. With Marantz’s own HDAM modules fitted, the sound is tuned with absolute precision.

Sonic precision – with HDAM
This source uses Marantz's own HDAM (Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Module) circuits. These bespoke op-amps use surface-mount metal-film resistors for greater temperature stability. The result is cleaner, less distorted sound that’s delivered with perfect clarity.

Bluetooth, AirPlay 2, DLNA and built-in wi-fi for the complete networking experience
With both Bluetooth and AirPlay 2 connectivity, it's easy to connect all your smartphones, tablets and compatible lap/desktops and stream music wirelessly. The SACD 30n also comes with wi-fi, Internet radio and DLNA. Simply connect to your home network via Ethernet or wi-fi and access thousands of Internet radio sites via vTuner as well as subscription services such as Spotify Connect (Premium Spotify account required), Tidal, Deezer and Amazon Prime Music. DLNA compatibility lets you stream from other sources such as your laptop or NAS drive.

Voice control via Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri devices
For the latest in smart home tech, the SACD 30n is compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri devices. Simply download the HEOS Home Entertainment Skill app and then just ask Alexa or the Google Assistant to perform functions such as volume and source selection. Using the Apple Home App, Siri voice control from your Apple iOS device brings added functionality over AirPlay 2 – including grouping devices.

HEOS built-in - for the finest multi-room audio
HEOS multi-room music systems connect together by dual-band Wi-Fi, making them easy to set up with your existing home network. Up to 32 HEOS units can be set up at one time, ensuring even the largest of homes are covered for multi-room music. With HEOS already built-in, the SACD 30n is ready to go as a single 'zone' without any further adaptors.

Control it all with the HEOS app
Once you've set up your HEOS speaker system, you can stream music effortlessly via the dedicated HEOS app. Available for Apple iOS, Android and Amazon Kindle, the app not only lets you stream your stored music but also Internet radio services and popular streaming services such as Spotify, Tidal, Napster and Deezer.

CD and SACD playback
As one of the very first CD player manufacturers, you can be assured of class-leading sound from your silver discs. To move the game on, try it with Hi-Res SACD discs. These Direct Stream Digital (DSD) discs offer far higher resolution than ordinary CDs and are similar in resolution to 24-bit music files. The result is a more natural sound, revealing subtle detail and texture in the music.

Plug in your TV, games console and more - A DAC for all your digital sources
As well as digital outputs the SACD 30n also comes with four digital inputs. This means that you can connect up to four sources via a choice of USB-B, optical (2) or coaxial. Boosted by the Marantz’s internal electronics, pretty much any digital source with a digital output can have its sound improved by being connected up.

Hi-Res music compatible
The quality sound continues with the Hi-Res music compatibility. The SACD 30n is able to stream Hi-Res 192kHz/24 bit signals through all its digital inputs. Connect via the USB-B input and the player extends this to 384kHz/32 bit files and it also decodes DSD files right up to 11.2MHz.

Asynchronous USB input for great sound from your computer
At the rear of the SACD 30n is a USB-B socket that’s designed for connecting up to your PC or Mac (PCs may require a software driver uploading). Once connected, the asynchronous link means that your soundcard is bypassed with the audio sound processing now handled by the Marantz. Using its own premium digital to analogue processing, the sound quality from your PC or Mac is greatly enhanced.

Premium build quality
Pick up the SACD 30n and you can appreciate this is no ordinary CD player. Using thick, non-magnetic aluminium panels and a steel top cover, the player resists both mechanical and electrical interference. The fixed phono outputs are machined from brass for the best quality contact possible.

Hear all your digital music sources, without compromise, with the Marantz SACD 30n.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Analogue sound in the digital age At outset, I make no apology for being a teenager in the 1960’s. I was raised on vinyl and live music – my 1st concert in 1964 was to see an upcoming band called The Beatles. So I have always enjoyed a warm and accurate sound. This was reflected in my choice of QUAD amplification and Pro-Ac studio monitor speakers. When I committed to CDs I trialled lots of CD players and ended up choosing a Marantz CD6000 OSE K1 signature. 20 years later it still works fine. Yes, Marantz does have a distinct musical signature and is probably not for those who prefer a brighter ‘digital’ sound. After burning in – best to run the units 24/7 for at least 2 weeks (I used internet radio for convenience) – they ‘opened-up’. I started to realise how much control these units have over the full musical range. Not simply hearing things one hadn’t heard before – even after 50 years of listening to a particular song – but the sheer authority and sound stage. I listen to a very wide range of music (rock, jazz, classical, electronic) and I want to hear ‘everything’ without deafening the neighbours. Listening to music at home is about pleasure, not measuring technical parameters. The SACD is a versatile digital delight while the Model 30 amp is pure analogue. And it’s this combination which in my opinion works so well and is most likely what Marantz were aiming for. The grin on my face, and on other listeners to the system, is testament to what really good audio equipment paired with good sound sources can deliver. Closing ones eyes, as often as not the speakers ‘disappear’ leaving just the ‘image’ of a performance. When you go to play one song off a CD and end up listening to the lot, that’s a true sign of musical enjoyment. In summary: Both units are very well built and aesthetically both stylish and well laid out for ease of use. I have the black ones but the silver/gold units look great too. Paired together, they provide an extremely accurate yet warm sound – the ‘analogue’ of my musical upbringing. Avoid pairing them with warm sounding speakers. Throw away the standard power cables and invest in decent ones. Same applies to interconnect cables and of course speaker cables. With appropriate speakers, these units will show up the failings of poor quality recordings and really allow one to enjoy the joys of good quality recordings. Regardless, the addition of very usable tone controls allows one to compensate – the purist may be appalled but it’s about the music! The amp is very conservatively rated and will I’m sure drive any speaker to a level which will either blow the cones or ones eardrums. For the vinyl junkies out there, it also comes very well equipped on the phono side – I use CDs or streaming – but obviously use wireless or a LAN, not Bluetooth. They’re not cheap but at half the price of the Marantz top of the range units on which they’re heavily based, they’re good value. If you’re in the market for that ‘analogue’ sound and want a high quality 2 channel system, the Marantz should be on your listening list. Most of all, enjoy. And thanks Richer Sounds for all your help.
