Marantz CD12 transport and DA12 dac According to Marantz, the CD12's D/A converter and digital filter use special'select grade' Philips TDA1541A S1 single crown chips with four-times oversampling, and they are supposed to realize more than 15.75 bits of resolution out of the 16 bits available in the standard CD format. Technology The transport section features a Philips CDM-1 mechanism made of die-cast aluminium alloy. The transport and D/A sections of the Marantz CD12 can be linked via a coaxial cable or a supplied optical-fiber cable said to have diamond-polished connectors.
The system comes with a sophisticated universal remote control that can learn 150 functions from other remotes of audio and video products. Control Layout Each of the Marantz CD12's components is fitted with a swingdown door, along the lower edge of the front panel, which hides controls. With the panel closed, the transport unit shows switches only for power, drawer open/close, play/stop, and track advance/reverse. An elaborate display is also visible; it shows the usual track number, shuffle play and repeat, FTS data, and in tiny numerals from 1 to 24, the total number of tracks present on the disc. The front panel of the D/A unit, the Marantz DA12, has a power switch at the left and a central display divided into three areas.
The first shows digital tape-monitoring mode (coaxial or optical), the second shows whether the current sampling frequency is 48 or 44.1 kHz (it's unit when playing material made with 32-kHz sampling), and the third shows which of the two coaxial and two optical digital inputs has been selected. Opening the hinged door reveals a stereo headphone jack and level control, a'Digital Tape monitoring' selector and an'Input Selector'.
An abbreviated block diagram of the D/A converter is also screened onto the surface behind the hinged door. The converter's rear panel is equipped with two digital coaxial inputs, two optical digital inputs, left and right unbalanced analog outputs, and left and right balanced XLR analog output connectors.
A fuse-holder and a second power cord complete the rear panel. Use and listening tests The versatility of this system's remote control is truly awesome.
Just about every function of the CD player was controlled, using the remote, both during the bench tests and subsequent listening tests. Clearly, Marantz has attempted to design and build a reference CD player and has spared no expense in doing so. Aesthetically, the two units are attractive and, mounted one above the other, give the impression of elegance and style that i'm sure was intended.
