Marantz NA-11S1 Reference Network Audio Player and DAC
The NA-11S1 Premium Network Audio player is arguably the most advanced, next-generation player there has ever been. Its introduction to this year’s Premium collection is a true milestone in the Marantz history and is a momentous occasion for every audiophile. Because finally, it is now possible to enjoy new media on the highest of levels, by utilizing the increasingly available high resolution downloads it creates ‘studio master’ quality right in your own living room. It produces such breath-taking audio quality because inside it includes the High Current Audiophile D/A converter DSD1792 as well as a Marantz original DSP and Digital Filter PEC777- a high-end algorithm previously used only in professional recording studios - we call it Marantz Musical Mastering. This type of filtering retains greater detail for an even wider sound stage and a perfect balance.
Its analogue audio circuits feature Marantz HDAM®-SA2 and HDAM®, and the Toroidal transformer ensures that there’s always power in store the instant it’s needed, while the rigid copper-plated chassis with 5mm thick aluminum top cover minimize vibration and interference. Importantly, selectable digital filters allow you to tune the sound as you prefer. The USB-B port works in asynchronous mode and supports not only 192kHz / 24bits but also the DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz for maximized versatility. You can play FLAC HD 192/24 files, WAV 192/24 files, Internet Radio and Streaming Services support via Ethernet, and AirPlay Music Streaming from iTunes or iDevices – as well as many other file types. It is also DLNA 1.5 certified, so Android integration is easy, and the USB-A port on the front panel also makes playback from an iPod/iPhone/iPad or USB devices just as simple. This player has the lot. What more could you dream of?

Benefits of Marantz NA-11S1 Reference Network Audio Player and DAC:
Marantz Musical Mastering
In 2004, the original SA-11S1 was the first ever SACD player to offer selectable digital filter algorithms. These were developed by Marantz to improve CD audio quality significantly. In 2012 the SA-11S3 and in 2013, the NA-11S1 continues this pioneering role with the advanced selectable digital filtering technologies that were previously available only in professional recording studios. As these digital filters are all about music, we call this technology Marantz Musical Mastering.
There are two filter characteristics to cater for different tastes, and each handles even the minutest of detail with loving care in the digital audio signal . Making standard counted sound as incredible as high-resolution audio, and transforming new media files into the finest of high-resolution playback. No compromises are made here. As today’s new media not only comes in 44.1kHz/16 bit resolution – similar to the CD format, Marantz also developed the digital filters to handle signals of up to 192kHz/24bit resolution. Enabling it to make the most of high-resolution files and reproducing music with stunning clarity. This is supported by a superior DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) for the purest possible conversion of the digital signal processed by Marantz Musical Mastering.
Marantz developed its own discrete circuit boards to replace standard IC's. These HDAM's consists of discrete surface mount components with short mirror image L/R signal paths. Those devices are doing exactly the same thing as the Op-Amps, but outperform the regular IC Op-amps dramatically in terms of the Slew Rate and reduced noise level, resulting in a much more dynamic, accurate and detailed sound. Over the years Marantz developed different types of the HDAM to improve quality and to fit to the special requirements of a product category like CD or amplifier.
More than just a DAC
With the DAC mode we describe the operation of the product as an external Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC). You can connect via optical / coaxial digital inputs or the USB type B input sources such as such as an external CD drive, digital tape, music server, PC or network client. These sources can make use of the high quality D/A converter and the analogue output stage equipped with HDAM modules to enrich the sound quality.
Made for iPhone / Made for iPod
‘Made for iPod’ and "Made for iPhone" means that an electronic accessory has been designed specifically to connect to iPod and has been certified to meet the Apple performance standards. Current Marantz products carrying the 'Made for iPod' logo are compatible with the following iPod models: 5th Generation iPod or higher, iPod Classic, iPod Nano (1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th generation), iPod video and iPod Touch. For 5th Generation iPod, iPod Nano or iPod Touch the audio transmission is digital. 'Made for iPhone' adds the iPhone compatibility to this list.
PC Audio Streaming
Digital media stored on a computer or NAS (network access storage - network hard disc drive) is becoming more and more popular. But listening to the music only "on the go" via your portable media player or sitting in front of a PC is not a must anymore. With our products supporting audio streaming you can enjoy the music via the HiFi system in a high-quality, and while sitting on your couch.
In the same way, even the headphone output on the player is optimised: like the HDAMs, it’s built entirely from discrete components, rather than using simpler ‘amp on a chip’ technology, for the very best sound quality.
