 At last, an ON TOPIC  post by you that may be of interest to those wishing to make backup copies of their LP collection in case of accidental damage .

How a Digital Audio file sounds, or a Digital Video file looks, is governed to a large extent by the Power Supply area. All that Identical Checksums gives is the possibility of REGENERATING the file to close to that of the original file.

I think you’re wrong here. They use their old design HDAM amps (Latest version) with SMPS.

Not even sure this can be called class D

 

 

The HDAM modules form part of the pre-amp section; they're situated between the volume control and power amplifier sections to amplify and buffer line-level signals.  The power amp section uses two Class D amplifier modules from Hypex (NC500 OEM).

The 30 series consisting of the Model 30 Integrated Amp and 30n SACD player/network player.

 

The Integrated is using the Hypex Ncore class D amplifiers, meaning GUTB already hates it. The Network player does USB PCM up to 384khz and DSD to 11.2 Mhz.

 

Specs and all related info can be found here: https://www.us.marantz.com/en-us/30-series

For the price, I'm taken aback by the plastic faceplate and plastic knobs.

Gentlemen:  why so much urine at this end of the pool?

 

We have strong preferences for the type of equipment that sounds good to us.  So what?

 

Variety is good!

i'm afraid that's not true -- the faceplate is not plastic and looks fabulous in person.  i can't testify to the knobs as i didn't actually touch them.

Have you seen one in person?

 

Not yet.  I was reading about the plastic in a review and a post on some forum:

https://www.avsforum.com/threads/marantz-model-30-2-channel-integrated-amplifier-and-30n-sacd-player-and-network-smart-streaming.3168378/

 

I am hoping they are wrong.

@lucretius -- looked at your first link, wow!  the second links says its metal.  when i ran my hand over the contoured part of the front face, it certainly didn't feel plastic.  i'll check again next time i'm in the local shop.
