Marantz SA-10 SACD Player Upgrade
Upgrade your purchase with these options:
Almost any Hi-Fi component can be upgraded to higher performance using our techniques and components. The two things go together – the know-how and the right component. Over the last 30 years, we have developed our knowledge of where the biggest problems lie and how to overcome them to unleash better performance from a given piece of equipment.
Launched 2018 to great acclaim, the SA-10 was the first high end multi-format player from Marantz to feature a transport mechanism designed in-house. The SA-10 also features a total overhaul of all the signal paths plus a new digital-to-analogue section called Marantz Music Mastering.
The Marantz SA-10 is a tour de force of high end audio performance and we were mightily impressed here at Russ Andrews HQ out of the box, but we've identified quite a few key areas for upgrade. The Marantz SA-10 upgrade builds on the strengths of the player. Everything you love about the sound and picture remains – it just gets so much better.
120 component upgrades/changes are made across the power supply, digital and analogue circuitry, and output sockets. Upgrades include Russ's favoured audio grade Panasonic capacitors which give a smooth and detailed sound.
The Marantz SA-10 is completely disassembled to gain access to key areas of upgrade. Post upgrade, the unit is then soak tested for 24 hours.
Starting with the mains input, the internal wiring is upgraded to Kimber TCX pure copper wire which features our proprietary Super Burn-in process.
The power supply section is then upgraded with Panasonic Audiograde Caps.
83 parts in total are changed.
To ensure the integrity of the signal, pure silver from Kimber is used from the analogue output board to the WBT-0102Ag socket.
If you don't have the exact model, but a similar variant, then we can also offer an upgrade for those players too! a very similar unit, then it's highly likely that the same or similar upgrades will apply. But we can't guarantee that until we have the unit here for inspection. Get in touch and let us know what you have.
Equipment upgrades are proving hugely popular. During peak times there may be a wait of several weeks before we can carry out the upgrade. So before we get your equipment here, it must be booked in so we can ensure a speedy turnaround of the upgrade. Once you have placed your order, we will contact you to arrange a suitable week and getting the equipment here.
For those of you who are local enough or if you fancy a trip to the lakes, you can drop off your equipment personally and then collect it when it’s complete or we can ship it back to you.
We can arrange a courier collection of your equipment for an additional cost. We currently use UPS.
To make things easier, we can offer several collection options.
1. We can arrange a specific day for the courier to call and collect your equipment. Someone will need to be available all day at the collection address as we’re unable to arrange a time slot for collections.
2. Dropping off at a UPS Access Point. UPS use a network of local shops to deliver and collect parcels from and to. We can either post you a collection label or email you the label (you will need to print the label at home/work). Securely box up your equipment, affix the collection label to the outside of the box and take it to your preferred Access Point where you will be issued a receipt. UPS Access Points can be found here (link opens in a new window), simply enter your postcode to find your nearest one.
