INTRODUCTION

Thank you for selecting the Marantz SA8001 Super Audio CD Player for your Audio system.

This Player incorporates a number of features designed to enhance the listening of your favorite audio sources.

Please read these operating instructions carefully. We recommend that you read the entire user guide before you attempt to connect or operate the player. After you have reviewed the contents of this manual,we suggest that you make all system connections before you attempt ttêoperate the unit.

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 current-feedback-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.

Newly Developed Toroidal Transformer

A newly developed Toroidal power transformer, which produces less vibration and magnetic leakage flux than previously, has been incorporated. The materials and manufacturing process of the ring-shaped core are strictly controlled to reduce vibration, while the short-ring attached to the perimeter of the transformer reduce magnetic leakage flux.

Large Capacitance Block Capacitor

A large capacity 3300 F block capacitor is incorporated into the power supply circuit.

Film capacitors and electrolical capacitors etc.

The capacitors used in high end models are incorporated into the SA8001 Super Audio CD player.

Copper-coated Chassis

High Grade Audio Output Terminal

ABOUT SUPER AUDIO

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.

PLAYING CD-RW DISCS

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 properly-recorded 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.

*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.

The number of tracks recorded may vary per layer. It will be shown on the display window of the unit.

**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)

*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.

Rear 4 ins. (0.1 m) or more

*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 heatradiating 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.

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 heatradiating 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.

On top of an amplifier or other component which dissipates a great deal of heat

*The quality of the laser and other components can be harmed if the player is placed directly on top of an amplifier or other device which generates heat.

7 Do not place objects on top

Refrain from placing any objects on top of the player.

7 Cautions on handling power cord

Do not touch the power cord with wet hands.

When disconnecting the power cord, always make sure that you take hold of the plug. Yanking out or bending the cord can damage it and/or cause electric shocks or a fire.

Get into the habit of disconnecting the power plug before leaving home.

7 Do not attempt repairs yourself

Refrain from lubricating the player: doing so can cause malfunctioning.

Only qualified engineers with specialized expertise are authorized to repair the pick-up and parts inside the player.

PRECAUTIONS

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 CDROMs used with personal computers, game CDs, video CDs or DVDs (video/audio).

We do not recommend the use of lens cleaners.

USING REMOTE CONTROL UNIT

Misuse of the batteries can result in electrolyte leakage, rupturing, corrosion, etc.

Bear in mind the following points when using batteries.

Remove the batteries from the remote control unit if the unit is not going to be used for a prolonged period (a month or more).

Do not use an old battery together with a new one.

Insert the batteries while ensuring that their and poles are properly aligned with the corresponding markings on the remote control unit.

Batteries with the same shape may have different voltages. Do not use different types of batteries together.

If electrolyte has leaked, thoroughly wipe the inside of the battery compartment, and then insert new batteries.

When batteries which are no longer required are to be discarded, follow the directions (regulations) laid down by the local authorities in the area concerned for their disposal.
