SoundMag - - News - Writ­ten by Or­laith Costello

The SA-KI Ruby and PM-KI Ruby, a pas­sion project to cel­e­brate Brand Am­bas­sador Ken Ishi­wata’s 40th an­niver­sary with Marantz, will be avail­able for pur­chase in late Novem­ber to early De­cem­ber 2018 priced at $7,990AUD each.

The SA-KI Ruby SACD/CD player and PM-KI Ruby am­pli­fier are limited edi­tion with a run of only 1000 units apiece, mak­ing it a promis­ing col­lec­tor item for au­dio­philes.

Set apart by a laser-etched re­pro­duc­tion of Ishi­wata’s sig­na­ture with a ruby on their front-plates, the new com­po­nents are de­signed and tuned by a team led by Ishi­wata, build­ing on his years of ex­pe­ri­ence with the com­pany, to de­liver truly ex­cel­lent sound.

The new SA-KI Ruby Su­per Au­dio CD player can play SACDs, CDs, and com­pi­la­tions on CD-ROM or DVD-ROM, and fea­tures an asyn­chro­nous USB in­put which is able to han­dle for­mats all the way up to PCM / DXD 384kHz/32bit and DSD11.2MHz. In ad­di­tion to Marantz Mu­si­cal Mas­ter­ing up­sam­pling and con­ver­sion for ul­ti­mate sig­nal pu­rity and iso­lated dig­i­tal in­puts to block noise from con­nected com­po­nents.

The PM-KI Ruby pure ana­logue am­pli­fier fea­tures an al­lana­logue de­sign with Marantz Mu­si­cal Pre­mium Phono EQ for vinyl play­back with a fully-dis­crete two-stage de­sign with high­res­o­lu­tion preamp and switch­ing power amp, plus sep­a­rate power sup­plies for pre and power stages for sig­nal pu­rity.

The Marantz SA-KI Ruby and PM-KI Ruby will be avail­able in a limited-edi­tion of 1000 num­bered units (500 black and 500 gold), with a cer­tifi­cate of au­then­tic­ity.

They’re avail­able separately at $7,990AUD and will come with a five-year warranty on regis­tra­tion
