Choosing marantz sa8005 or NAD C546BEE cd player
« on: Jan 12, 2016 at 12:46 PM »
Planning to pick up one of these player for my audio set up. Torn between this two player! Will match them to tube amp SET line magnetic. If you were to choose, which one will you pick and why?

Thanks.

Hands down marantz sa8005...sacd player na yan at can function as standalone dac (cirrus logic cs4398) with coax and optical inputs....although nad 546bee has better dac chip wolfson wm8740...

Based on Sound Quality (SQ), I will go for the NAD 546 BEE due to the superior DAC - Wolfson 8740, it's the same DAC used in higher-end players such as Rega.
