I imagine you've read John Atkinson's very favourable review in Stereophile, where he described the 11S1's DAC capabilities in laudatory terms - if my Marantz dealer had that model at anything even vaguely close to the US sticker I would have bought it, but the best I could manage was the SA-14S1, and you can read my thoughts here:
I would also like to hear the 11S1, but I'd be even more interested in hearing the KI Pearl SACD player. It never ends ;)
That’s right, his and a few others . When you say that if the price have been lower you had bought it. I interpret it like you have compeered them. In your opinion what kind of sound (pros and cons) does the NA-11S1/14S1 have and how is it compeered to your Hugo that you like pretty much, if I don’t remember wrong?
