"A return to our heritage" - The Marantz CD12 Limited Edition Compact Disc Player. Music in its purest form has always been of paramount importance to Marantz. It was with music in mind that we decided to develop the ultimate in hi-fi.
This new series is the result of years of patient effort by a dedicated technology design team in Marantz Japan.
Recognizing fully that static specifications were useless to assess the actual qualities of the Marantz CD12 design, high specialized dynamic tests were developed that resulted in information that enabled the design team to raise the dynamic performance level to plateaus never before achieved.
This has directly resultad in quite outstanding improvements in audible sound quality, in terms of depth, openness, precise instrumental positioning, transparency and lucidity.
Marantz CD12, a testament to the evolution of the art by the Marantz design engineers.
This CD12LE is complete with boxes, the original remote and instructions for use.
Fitted with the Philips CDM1 cdmechanism and Philips TDA1541A S1 d/a converter this reference cdplayer sounds beautiful.
