Sorry, This product is no longer available



Marantz SA-KI Pearl SACD/ CD player enables you to hear every last detail in your recordings thanks to the advanced electronic design and superior compnent quality, plus fine tuning by Marantz brand ambassador Ken.

Although the SA-KI Pearl Lite is a brand new member of the KI Pearl family, it is also proven. That’s because it utilises the technology and the experience gained from the development of the highly-acclaimed Premium Range’s SA-KI Pearl. Which makes it a perfect no-compromise player for CDs, SACDs and even USB devices with MP3, WMA and iPod/iPhone files. In addition, this bright little protégé can also be directly connected to your PC without a network set-up. Thanks to its B-type USB input on the rear panel, the PC will recognise it as an “audio card”. In addition, the optical and coaxial digital inputs mean you can use it as an external DAC too. All these connectivity options make the SA-KI Pearl Lite very convenient, but convenience is just the start. All these different sources use the same excellent audio processing, so all your music will radiate the same intense lustre and inner glow of a perfect pearl.

The Lites have distinctive side-cheek styling that hark back to Marantz designs of the past, but couple this with thoroughly modern features including advanced iPod connectivity and the ability of the player to be used as a DAC for a range of digital sources.
