Question about Marantz PM-15S1 2-Channel Amplifier
Hi,i have purchased marantz pm 15 s1 amplifier and sa 15 si cd player and i figured out that i couldn`t connect a optical wire from the CD player to the amplifier as the CD player has an coax and optical but the amplifier doesn`t have that slout.
Kindly help me with his problem.
i need to know if we can connect this optical cable and if so,to which slout in the amplifier.
There really is no point in connecting the two components with an optical (=digital) cable, if you didn't want to use the SA-15s DAC- and analog output section you might aswell have bo bought the chiepest one you could find...
To get better sound than the SA-15s analog outputs can provide, you would have to spend a load of money (not as much as for the SA-15 but quite a bit) on a DAC - and the DAC would only work with CDs, you would still have to use the SA-15s analog outputs to listen to SACDs.
So in conclusion:
-Use the SA-15s analog outputs
-If you have other digital sources that you want to use - if you care about their sound quality - you can sell/return the SA-15s, buy the chiepest CD-Player you find (only look and feel matter) and spend the rest on a good DAC. (note: SACDs won't play on this setup)
I'm using a PM-15S1 with a DAC (Apogee Mini DAC, Studio-Equipment, nominal price ~1000$, got mine 2nd hand for 400€ ) myself. A DAC is usually the better choice over an expensive CD-Player - especially if you've got other digital sources (PC, ...) - but you'll probably lose a lot of money if you sell the SA-15, so think about it (IF you're still thinking about it, I realise that your question is 8 months old...)
anyway... have fun with the PM-15, it sure is beauty
