  • Bullet proof drive mechanism
  • HDAM SA2 driven balanced audio input

Premium Converter Chip Enhances Dynamic Range And Clarity

New for the SA-11S3 is the inclusion of the top-line Burr-Brown DSD1792A D/A converter chip, which features both PCM and DSD decoding, and provides a high current output that is substantially larger (7X more) than the DAC chip used in previous models, for greater dynamic range and improved signal to noise characteristics.

Multiple Filters Offer Versatile Listening Options

Two digital filter options are provided for both PCM and DSD bitstreams. With PCM content Filter 1 has a symmetrical impulse response with extremely short pre- and post-echo characteristics and an absolutely linear phase response for a sound that is the most faithful to the original digital audio source, while the Filter 2 option provides a more analog-like signal that strikes the best balance of fine detail coupled with rich harmonics.

SACDM2 Optical Drive Mechanism For Accurate Disc Readout

For optimum disc readout accuracy, the SA-11S3 is equipped with our latest generation SACDM2 optical disc drive mechanism, which provides solid rotational accuracy with both CDs and SACDs, and features a dual layer stainless steel/steel top plate, and the whole mechanism is securely anchored to the dual layer base plate via its own solid metal sub-chassis.

Multiple Ports For Versatile Connectivity

Digital versatility is the hallmark of the SA-11S3, as the player does double duty as a reference quality DAC and is equipped with numerous digital interfaces to accept a wide variety of formats. The front panel features a USB-A port for connection to a portable device such as an iPod, iPhone, iPad and the like, as well as compatibility with other devices.
