The Marantz SA11S2 was a wonderful CD/SACD player 70% as good as the SA7S1. The SA7S1 was my favorite player and a super value at its $6500 retail price. With our L-1 mod to your SA11S2, we take it to the same level as a stock SA7S2 for a significant savings.
In exclusive partnership with top-tier modification house Parts ConneXion, Underwood HiFi is proud to offer the following carefully tested performance enhancement packages for the Marantz DV-9500 and 9600 universal players and 8260, SA7S1 and SA-11S1 and SA-11S2 SACD machines. You send us your player and we can do the upgrades.
We have been asked many times to design a mod for the Marantz SA7S1 player. The SA7S1 is a world-class player and the best stock player that we currently sell. Our modifications were designed by Chris Johnson, the founder and former president of Sonic Frontiers.
The Marantz 8260 was Class A rated in Stereophile as a superb SACD player. Our Level-1 mod makes it better in SACD mode as well as much improved for Redbook CD. Once modified, it is as good as their state of the art SA-11S1 in performance
