Underneath the Pearl SACD player?s 5mm aluminium cover is an XYRON Disc Tray with Precision Super Audio CD Drive. There?s also the latest Toroidal transformer. And, the Marantz-exclusive HDAM SA2 circuitry. Together they work sublimely with all the other carefully selected components to deliver precision highspeed signal handling over the widest possible frequency range.
As with amplifiers, you cannot judge a CD player by analysing its specifications. You need to listen. And that is what Ken Ishiwata has done in designing this unsurpassed KI Pearl SACD player. That?s why he built in a ?bulletproof?, vibration-damped cabinet, a rock-solid power supply with a Toroidal transformer, and an unsurpassed CD mechanism. It all sounds easy, but only with a long experience in product design and an intimate understanding of music reproduction is it possible to create a product like this player. And you have to hear it to believe us. In short, KI Pearls are true objects of beauty in every sense.
