You'll hear subtle nuances and musical textures on your favorite recordings that you may have never even noticed.

Along with serving up stunning musical detail and clarity with your disc collection, the SA8005 also doubles as a high-quality, stand-alone digital-to-analog converter (DAC) for your other digital music sources, including the tunes stored on or streamed from your iPod®, iPhone®, or PC. It can even play the latest computer-based high-res linear PCM and DSD (direct stream digital) music files.

Top-notch quality inside and out

The SA8005's specially designed disc transport, double-layered bottom plate, and metal front panel resist vibrations that can adversely affect sound. A hefty toroidal power supply delivers plenty of clean current for effortlessly dynamic playback. The high-performance DAC accurately reproduces audio tracks with stunning clarity and detail. The gold-plated outputs help maintain sound quality by ensuring the best signal transfer to your stereo system, and are widely spaced so they won't cramp the connectors on high-quality interconnects.

Versatile connections and better sound for your digital music sources

The SA8005 is also an impressive performer when used a stand-alone digital-to-analog converter. Marantz outfitted it with multiple inputs to play your digital source components through its built-in DAC:

  • A coaxial digital input is ideal for connecting a Blu-ray or DVD player, Sonos® Connect, or any other digital audio component with coax out, and taking advantage of the SA8005's high-performance processor for better sound.
  • The optical digital input is ready to take on a set-top box, HDTV, game console, Apple TV, or other digital source with optical digital output, and feed a high-quality audio signal into your stereo system.
  • A Type B USB jack feeds digital audio from your computer into the SA8005's onboard digital-to-analog converter, bypassing your computer's sound card to yield much clearer sound with stored music files, streaming services like Spotify, and Internet radio.
  • A front-panel Type A USB jack accepts direct digital signals from an iPod®, iPhone®, or a USB drive for superior sound through your headphones or home audio system.

Multiple input CD/DAC

Claudia from Tucson, AZ on 12/9/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I searched long and hard for a new CD player to use with my tube amp. I also had a desire to integrate my digital listening from iPod and streaming services. I explored a dedicated DAC and a SACD, but it ended up beyond my budget. The SA8005 fit both needs perfectly. I can also put in an optical and a coaxial digital source for half the price of a comparably rated DAC. As others have said theSA8005 sounds warm, but it works great with a pair of Klipsch Heritage speakers. It's a very nice paring for a medium sized room after playing with speaker placement. By the way, that's how you equalize Klipsch speakers and a tube amp, move the speakers around. Back to the SA8005, I'm very happy with my choice. It plays CDs beautifully and allows a few additional inputs into my amp via it's separately accessible DAC. I would highly recommend it to others looking to fill a similar nitch in their audio system.

Pros: Great CD sound and versatile for other sources of music.

Cons: No remotely operated CD tray.

SACD sounds more detailed than recent onkyo sacd player and dac is very musical.. beyond cambridge audio's dacmagic in my opinion. Highly recommended. I have this paired w/PM8005 integrated and ads 710 speakers. Very happy

Pros: Sound, design, build quality, dac

Cons: A bit pricey

Sounds great as a DAC and with SACDs! Easy to use, easy to setup.



Clean warm sound

Ray from Worcester, MA on 8/11/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Looking to improve sound from my stereo I wanted a better sacd player. This Marantz did that nicely. It has a very warm sound which I need being older with some hearing loss. Add Focal Elear headphones and it gets even better.

Pros: Wonderful sound Good price

Cons: None

Rock solid unit

Joseph from East Amherst, NY on 7/19/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I considered several options before settling on the SA8005, including going cheaper and going much more expensive. I finally decided that $1200 was the most I was comfortable paying for a medium that some feel I is being supplanted by streaming music. The unit is very well built and I immediately noticed two things: the DAC in it is better than the one in my Parasound Halo 5 pre-amp (which surprised me) and the SA8005 really does extract more detail from ordinary (red book) CDs than the $400-$600 units I had heard. I never got around to hearing the Marantz reference series CD players, but they wouldn't have to be awfully good to convince me as should have paid more than double the price of the SA8005. I am not going to sit here and say it sounds better than a $10K Audio Research tube CD player, but as don't care anyway. The other reviewers who said it brings new life to some of their tired old CDs were right, and I have been enjoying every minute of it.

Pros: Extracts more musical content from CDs than a middle-of-the-road unit

Cons: Maybe a bit pricey

Marantz SA8005

Anonymous from Athens , AL on 5/23/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have had CD players since the appearance of the technology so I knew that some have been better than others. In recent years I had assumed that those differences had diminished as the technology matured. I think in general that assumption is true. But after listening to the SA8005 for a while I can say that the difference in sound quality is discernible. I am an older man so my higher frequency hearing is not what it used to be but the bass and middle spectrum of this player is everything I need it to be. The bass on the Brian Simpson song "Her Eyes" (Out of a Dream) is quite something and this player delivers it very well. I also like the build quality and its subtle appearance. The service from Crutchfield was top notch and delivery was very quick.




steve from wi on 4/15/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Marantz SA8005 is my upgrade from Marantz CD5005 and is paired with a Marantz PM7005 integrated amp the sonic characteristics of this pair is on par with high end systems. I had several questions about the cd player Crutchfield customer service had the answers. In my opinion this player is a super value as it plays a variety of formats, and can be used as a DAC for high res music files including DSD. SACD disks can be played but I recommend this player even if you will never play a SACD disk. get this player for HI-FI listening of whatever digital music sources you have in your collection.

Pros: very versatile can use as stand alone DAC

Cons: none for my use

Smooth, warm, detailed sound

Anonymous from Sherman, TX on 12/30/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Marantz SA 8005 replaces a Marantz CD 6004 in my system, which shares a Marantz house sound that is smooth, musical, detailed, warm, never harsh, and listenable for long periods of time without listener fatigue. However, the SA 8005 is substantially more detailed, transparent, and versatile than its sibling. I'm a value oriented audiophile and I've found no other product anywhere near its price that provides all of its great sonic attributes and versatility; simply amazing for the price. I've deprived myself of sleep staying up late listening to music on this unit, and I love my sleep. Seriously, its that good!

Pros: Smooth, detailed, musical sound. Very versatile.

Cons: None at this price

Marantz SA8005

Anonymous from Grand Rapids, MI on 10/27/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am very happy with this unit so far. I have only had it for a few weeks. I wanted a player that played SACDs and without spending an enormous amount of money I narrowed it down to this unit and the Yamaha CD-S1000. I ordered the Yamaha unit from Yamaha and it sounded really really good but it kept stopping in the middle of a song with Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab SACDs. It seemed to play all other SACDs from other brands fine. There was another new CD it would not play at all. I don't know if it was a problem with just that unit but I returned it to get this Marantz unit. This one sounds great also. I was not able to compare the units side by side and the Yamaha unit did sound great but having it stop in the middle of a song didn't make me happy. One thing to note on the Marantz unit is when looking in the manual they mention a couple steps to make the sound better. The most important one is to set the digital output to OFF (so it is analog). I don't know why the factory setting isn't on that already. The other step which I would think is less important is for the digital display to be off. It does come back on when you skip ahead a track or stop the CD from playing. I hope this review is helpful to someone.



Greatly improved Sound.

Charles from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA on 9/1/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am very pleased with my purchase of the Marantz SA8005. The construction quality is superb and the rubberized cd tray is an added touch. Sonically - at least to my ears - the improvement in sound quality is terrific. I even had to decrease my usual volume levels for listening as the unit is obviously much more efficient in data transfer to sound and I am hearing additional music texture not previously offered in the cd player this unit replaced. The purchasing experience with Crutchfield's advisor was most pleasant and I would recommend both this unit and Crutchfield's service most enthusiastically.

Pros: Solid Construction, Sonic improvement over previous player.

Cons: Marantz name plate a little too bright.

Marantz SA8005 - great unit

PG from Johnston, RI on 4/18/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After reading about several cd players, I ordered a Marantz SA8005 to use with my old Bose Lifestyle system. The reviews were very favorable, and the website information was very helpful. I wanted to be able to stream music from my computer, and also to have SACD capability. The unit arrived in two days. I had to install the Windows driver, and the driver works. After listening to several of my cds and some music from my computer, I am really happy with my purchase. The sound is wonderful. It is clean and realistic. I heard things from my music that I hadn't heard before. This is certainly a worthwhile investment.

Pros: Great sound and versatility.

Cons: Haven't found any.

fantastic unit, great DAC for iphone


Cons: none

Better than expected

AlexeiM from California on 11/24/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've been getting by with an aging Marantz CD and Pioneer DVD/CD/SACD player (CD63SE and DV-58AV, respectively) coupled to decent external D/A converters (PS Audio, Musical Fidelity) and, thinking D/A conversion was the critical factor affecting the sound, wasn't expecting a vast improvement with the SA8005. I was wrong. There has been a significant improvement in the sound of both CDs and SACDs -- silky smooth highs and very nicely balanced across the audible spectrum. Previously, if I felt like hearing the best possible sound from my system I'd reach for an LP but now this is only true when playing freakish LP outliers like early London pressings. I have no idea if the SA8005's D/A converters are better or other factors are in play but I'm very happy with the purchase. My other equipment equipment includes an Almarro 318B SE tube amp and Altec 604Es.

Pros: Looks good, plays great.

Cons: None so far.

A great CD Player + very good DAC

Steve from Massachusetts on 10/28/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After several weeks of listening I am very pleased with my SA8005 CD player. I wasn't all that familiar with Marantz products so I was a bit concerned how the DAC would perform but both sound crisp and well balanced with my Musical Fidelity amplifier. Prior to this purchase I had an Audiolab 8300 CD player which also had a great DAC but the SA8005 CD player has a smoother more rounded sound. This was also my first time buying from Crutchfield and i was very impressed with the service (high marks to my product advisor who was delightful and very knowledgeable). I will definitely buy from Crutchfield again.

Pros: Crisp sound when playing CDs (especially SACD) with plenty of punch and equally solid performance from the DAC. Very easy to use and solidly built, immediately noticeable when you insert the CD into the tray.

Cons: Nothing significant yet other than the remote seems a bit slow responding at time and I definitely miss the printed out manual.

Good for the money.

Steve from California on 8/11/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used play California Audio Lab Mark II. It was play well since 1996. I had Pioneer DVD player that can play SACD, but sound quality was same as regular CD. I put it in the trash can when I purchased blue ray DVD player. Recently I purchased Marantz and played old SACD. The main difference is the player has more power not only clear sound(I new SACD has more db later). That is why I can hear detailed sound more. I am happy now. Problem is there is not many SACD's.

Pros: Clear sound and powerful punch.

Cons: There is no eject button in the remote control. Fast-forward does not working well.

Good choice

marks from Maryland on 12/18/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wanted to get back into a higher end audio system and was familiar with the Marantz brand - had a 1060 integrated amp in the 70's (it still works!) so I opted for this model coupled with the 8005 CD player. First of all I was really impressed with the build quality - a very nice looking piece of equipment. Secondly, it still had the same tactile feeling on the controls that my old model did - very precise and balanced. Soundwise, it is pretty much a true reproduction of what you put into it - very happy with the power and tone quality of it. I must say something about Crutchfield - this was my first ever purchase from them and with everything all totaled, more than a few thousand bucks. I can't believe how fast things get to you - I ordered a few things at 7:00pm and they were at my house at 3:00 the next day! Secondly, I had a real issue with a DBX equalizer I was trying to hook into the system and it would not work correctly -their technical service people spent a great deal of time with me and figured out a wiring solution that would work with the components involved. In a world where a lot of companies seem to get by with as little as they can do for you, I feel the opposite is true for Crutchfield - you have a happy customer!

Pros: Great build quality, classic Marantz sound.

Cons: Zilch

Great CD Player

Chuck C from Rochester Hills, MI on 7/29/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Wonderful sound ! The player begs you to pull out CDs that haven't seen the light of day in ages and doesn't disappoint. Your reward is a very easy well rounded sound, deep bass and sound stage depth...more on the warm side of sound than the analytical. So.... a joy to listen to, CD after CD.

Pros: Ability to hook up to a computer or jump drive....which I haven't tried yet.

Cons: None so far !

USB DAC does not work

cupboy from UT on 5/18/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

MacBook unsupported by USB DAC. This eliminates the ability to play DSD files. There is a review online that says the same thing, so it's not just limited to the unit I bought.

Pros: SACD playback

Cons: DSD Downloads will be unplayable.

Great Player That Will Last a Lifetime

ArcFlash from Columbus, OH on 5/16/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Crutchfield overview says you can hear the difference and they are absolutely correct. I was using a Blu-Ray player as my CD player and had no idea what I was missing. The SA8005 was a giant leap forward in sound quality. Before purchasing this player I found the highs in most music very annoying and grating, it was a "Wow, how did that cowbell get into this song?" situation. This player puts the highs in their natural place. I can hear them and enjoy them without them being overbearing and irritating. Same for the bass, I can hear it and appreciate it, but its not distracting me by bumping the entire room. This unit really separates the sound. I can now clearly hear different voices and instruments in the music making it more detailed and interesting for me. Also, in certain songs, I can now hear very low volume, subtle sounds that I was not aware of previously. While SACDs are not common these days, I still have enough in my collection that I wanted this feature; it's nice being able to enjoy all that music again. I plan on using the DAC feature in the future with Hi-Res downloads, but can't comment on that feature at this time. The SA8005 performs admirably with my iPod. Using a 5' cord I can sit in my favorite chair and listen to music without having to change disc. Using Apple Lossless format the sound quality is comparable to the original CD. I am very happy with this purchase and highly recommend it to anyone wanting a new CD/SACD/DAC player.

Pros: Construction: moving parts operate smoothly and quietly. No wobbly buttons or noisy CD trays. Versatility: CD and SACD player, a DAC, and an iPod dock. Connections: More than most people will ever use, but its nice to have them, just in case. Cost vs. Benefit: There are better players but they cost a lot more money for only a small (if even noticeable) increase in sound quality. Aesthetics: Coordinates with my other Marantz unit, and lastly: it really ties the room together.

Cons: I've used the SA8005 for several weeks and have no issues or concerns with it. Considering what I wanted and needed to what I got, I would have to try very hard to think of a con for this player.

Windows Driver Faulty

Amham from New Jersey on 2/18/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've owned the SA8003 (some problems), 8004, (great player) and now the 8005. Marantz generally makes a quality player and that is so for the hardware of the SA8005. However, the Windows driver is faulty and will not load (Win7). I've spent the last 2 weeks trying to contact and convince Marantz USA they have a problem with the Windows USB driver. Very poor customer service, they are either clueless to what the driver does (tier 1) or dismissive of the problem (tier 3). I resorted to the internet ( to gather other new owners and found the problem to be global. Finally a Swedish user was able to contact Marantz UK and their customer service recognized the problem, researched it and found the proper replacement. Luckily the Swedish user sent me the updated driver and finally the SA8005 is working 100% with high speed USB and DSD. If you are having a problem with loading the Windows driver (32/64 bit) insist that Marantz USA supply the corrected driver on their website. As of 2/18/14 the posted driver is faulty.

Pros: Great hardware, works 100% with MAC but NOT Windows.

Cons: Faulty Windows USB driver.


Hands-on research

Product Research


SACD Player: The Marantz SA8005 supports playback of single-layer, dual-layer, and hybrid-layer SACDs; as well as CD-Audio, CD-R/RW (MP3/WMA) discs. The Super Audio standard is based on Direct Stream Digital (DSD) technology. This direct-stream digital format is a 1-bit system with a sampling frequency 64x higher than a conventional audio CD (2,822,400 Hz vs. 44,100 Hz). SA-CD produces a frequency response of 2Hz to 50kHz and a 110dB dynamic range. Because of the way inaudible and audible frequencies mix, the resulting sound is more natural.

Marantz HDAM Technology: Instead of conventional op-amp integrated circuits, the SA8005 is equipped with our exclusive HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) technology. These discrete circuit elements feature wide-band response along with high slew rate, to deliver the most nuanced and detailed musical reproduction, and are ideally suited for today's high resolution wide-band digital audio sources.

High Resolution D/A Conversion: Featuring the reference-class high current CS4398 D/A converter, the SA8005 can accept a wide range of digital audio source types, including Super Audio CD Direct Stream Digital content at 2.8 and 5.6 MHz, along with linear PCM up to 24-bits/192kHz. The analog audio sections feature HDAM technologies for the purest audio reproduction. The DAC section features dual clock synchronization for optimum signal decoding, and can also decode MP3 and WMA digital audio formats.

Digital Inputs + Stand Alone DAC Capability: You can use the SA8005 as a stand-alone digital-to-analog converter, thanks to the inclusion of both coaxial and optical digital audio inputs. You can also connect your favorite portable audio device, via the convenient front-panel USB (type-A) port, and the SA8005 is compatible with the iPod, iPod touch and iPhone. The rear-panel asynchronous high speed USB (type-B) port lets you connect your home PC to the SA8005, so you can enjoy superb sound quality from your favorite PCM and DSD high resolution tracks stored on your computer. The USB (type-B) port also features Marantz's unique ground isolator circuit design that prevents PC-originated ground plane noise transfer.

  • Optical/Coaxial Inputs: The optical (toslink) and coaxial (RCA) digital inputs let you connect up to two external digital audio devices, such as Apple TV or other network digital audio players. Only PCM signals (32-192kHz) are compatible with the optical and coaxial inputs.
  • USB Type-A Input (iPod/Android Compatible): The front-panel USB port lets you connect select USB mass storage class devices (formatted in FAT16/32); such as Android smartphones/tablets (Froyo/Gingergread OS only), portable digital audio players, and thumbdrives; plus Apple iPod/iPhone devices (Classic, Nano, Touch, iPhone). You'll be able to listen to stored music (MP3/WMA/WAV/AAC) and music apps from your compatible device. This USB port will also charge your device while connected and you can control music playback from the included remote control.
  • USB Type-B Input (Mac/Windows Comaptible): By connecting a computer to the USB (type-B) port on the rear-panel of this unit, you're able to bypass the computer's soundcard and playback a variety of digital music files stored on your computer through the SACD player's 24-bit/192kHz DAC. The unit is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.3 and later, as well as Windows XP (SP3), Vista, 7, or 8. Windows requires the installation of a dedicated driver software found on the Marantz Website.

Analog & Digital Outputs: Two digital outputs, one optical (Toslink) and one coaxial (RCA), are provided for sending the audio signal to the digital input terminals of a receiver or digital recorder. No signal is output from either during playback of the HD layer of a Super Audio CD; digital signals are output when playing a CD, the CD layer of a Hybrid SA-CD, or any device connected to one of the digital inputs. The SACD player also features a stereo RCA analog output connection which can be set to variable or fixed.

Fully Discrete Headphone Amp: For the most enjoyable personal audio experience, connect your favorite headphones to the SA8005 and listen to the highest fidelity natural sound, thanks to our fully discrete headphone amplifier circuitry. With discrete circuit headphone amplifier topology, the SA8005 delivers superb personal listening, featuring wide-band response, tremendous dynamic range against a virtually noiseless background, and there's a convenient front-panel headphone volume control.

High Current Toroidal Power Transformer: For the most stable DC supply to the various circuit stages, the SA8005 is equipped with a high current toroidal power transformer, and features separate rectifier stages for the analog and digital sections to prevent mutual interference.

System Remote Control: The ergonomically designed remote control includes additional control functionality that lets you operate the matching Marantz PM8005 integrated stereo amplifier (642PM8005, sold separately) as well as our network audio component. The SA8005 also features remote control input and output ports for additional remote control connectivity.

Auto Standby: With the Auto Standby Mode turned on this unit will enter standby mode after approximately 30 minutes (continuous) of no audio playback.
