I’ve not found that. And neither did this reviewer of the newer I35 by Primare:-Class D is cold and lifeless.
The internals are a bit like the Ki Ruby's
Well - I hope they sound better than the Ki Ruby's which I found dull and lifeless
The 1st CD (a familiar favourite) I played on my SA-KI… I trusted it will sound better… one day it did.It'd be a cruel man who reminded you that you weren't very happy at first!
Are you stepping up to be the cruel man as if you are then I think you need to re-read my comments in the original thread and the good advice given by some members.It'd be a cruel man who reminded you that you weren't very happy at first!
It’s all about attitude, isn’t it Allears.Seeing the new Marantz Model 30 for the first time made me think the revised look might seriously divide opinions.
What do you think?
Me, I sort of like it but would have to see them ' in the flesh'.

So today was destined to be the day I respond to…I began to cringe a little at the end of that video review. 🤷♂️🤣
Are they trying to erase KI from the Marantz history books?
It’s not often that I get the opportunity to review traditional hi-fi gear because the audio market is changing rapidly. Increasingly, consumers want all-in-one devices that can deliver a full range of audio sources in one easy-to-use package. You only have to look at the soaring popularity of products like Naim’s Uniti range or some of the mini streaming systems from Denon or NAD to see where the market is heading. Smaller homes and a newer approach to technology mean audio systems are becoming more compact and flexible.
Yes, you get what you pay for, but exposed DACs in CD players are no new thing - even in high- end decks. And have you seen the price of the Model 30 CDP? Eyes watering?Did not think DSD was kicking off to be honest i still play CDs too as well as stream my music but would not buy a all in one unit that did both as i think you get what you pay for .
I am using my OPPO 203 for streaming at the moment as it uses a good Dac as well as its Roon ready but have a dedicated Cd player for CDs
