THD+N vs Fre­quency at 24/48kHz is shown in Graph 16 and you can see the Marantz SA-14S1 SE re­turned ex­cel­lent re­sults across both chan­nels for both 0dB and –20dB sig­nals. THD vs Level (Graph 17) was also an ex­cel­lent re­sult, as was the re­sult for jit­ter sus­cep­ti­bil­ity (Graph 18).

The Marantz SA-14S1 SE’s per­for­mance with square wave and sin­gle pulses has been shown for both fil­ter set­tings. With a pulse sig­nal you can see the dif­fer­ence is in the level and ex­tent of the pre- and post-ring­ing. With square waves you can see that the over­shoot is al­most the same ir­re­spec­tive of the fil­ter used, but that there’s much more ring­ing with Fil­ter 2 than with Fil­ter 1.

Marantz’s SA-14S1 SE re­turned out­stand­ing per­for­mance in all three of its op­er­at­ing modes: as a CD player, as an SACD player and as a DAC. Steve Hold­ing
