Flexible Digital Outputs
The NA7004 includes two rear-panel digital outputs. These outputs provide an S/PDIF signal even when the USB input is receiving iTunes music files
Extraordinary Sound Quality
You’ll find high quality parts throughout the NA7004. Chosen only after extensive listening tests, they contribute exceptional performance levels to critical circuits. In the analog section, Marantz-proprietary HDAM SA2 circuits handle critical buffering and stage-to-stage signal transition. Symmetrical signal traces help maintain perfect synchronization between Left and Right channels for rock-stable imaging and a convincing soundstage.
An impedance-matching copper plate inside the rear panel just behind the analog outputs improves signal-to-noise performance and channel separation to preserve the NA7004’s outstanding imaging capabilities.
A shield around the digital outputs is but a further detail in Marantz’s quest for quieter operation as it prevents digital noise from affecting sensitive analog circuits.
While it meets the digital-convenience demands of today’s music lover the NA7004 also delivers sound quality that speaks to Marantz’ leading position in the world of high end audio. Indeed, the NA7004 represents a rare marriage of current feature-set with high performance audio circuitry.
The D/A Converter
The Cirrus CS4398 stereo D/A Converter offers several advantages. An advanced multi-bit Delta-Sigma architecture handles 24-bit/192kHz digital signals, and boasts extraordinary dynamic range as well as equally exceptional signal-to-noise performance so your digital music files provide the warmth, detail, and resolution you demand.
Better Headphone Listening
The headphone output includes a high-speed current buffer circuit for minimal interference with the main audio output circuit, maximum articulation, stability, and fatigue-free listening.
