well spent the bast part of last night making comparisons , and at the end of the night , i can safely say that the ki sig, is not a massive improvement over the bog std 63!

anyone else found this with supposed , luxurry flagship models ?

i wonder, if i put a ki sig faceplate on a 63 would anyone be able to tell otherwise?

I disagree with Marantz players sounding bad!

I've got the KI sig 63 at the mo' to play with and I think it sounds very good - full bassy kinda' sound with adequate detail - I'd say its much better than the Cyrus stuff I've heard.

Sorry if this fans the flames but Just think that for a 10 year old machine its not half bad!

Cant comment on the base 63 vs the KI but if memory serves me right the KI was deinetly a step above the CD67SE at the time!

Eight years back Ireplaced the 67SE with a 63KI and didn´t got any difference. Amp was MF X-A1 speakers Dyn audience 60. I replaced the 63KI with a MF E624 and the music started to play.

I loved my CD63KI and i very much liked my CD75. Always thought they sounded very good indeed:cool:

I remember trying a CD67 about 9 years ago, it sounded bloody weird to me, not very natural, dynamics all over the place, timing very suspect.

The PM7200KI actually sounded worse than the standard PM7200 when I demoed it a couple of years ago. :raoflmfao:

The standard amp sounded good IMO but the 'modded' one was lacking a bit in bass (by comparison) and just didn't float my boat.

Ive only had a 6000 ose le, which was head and shoulders better than the cdp it replaced, a Technics 490, but, imho, the Rotel rcd02 kicked its arse, for not a lot more dosh, having said that, i still like Marantz kit, and cant understand why there seems to be an anti Marantz front on here.

There´ve beendifferent comparing reviews inHFC between standard andSE/KE versionsusually concluding the upgraded version not beingnoticeably better over the standard version (for the difference in price). The company that modded my cdp told that eg British products rather excelin design than use of components where Jap manufacturers like Marantz choose for applyingaudiophile parts toa ´Japanese design´.

IMO Marantz players are ok, not brilliant, but not bad either.

However...............

My hard earned would have to go on a Pioneer machine, the ones with the stable platter. PD-S 703, 801, 802, 904 etc.

The Marantz cd65 MkII I've got is not a patch on the Pioneer PD-S703 both in terms of sound quality and build. The Marantz is made out of plastic ffs, yet it costs more (second hand anyway).

Sound wise, the Pioneer just seems so much more precise (in a good way), imaging is better and bass deeper.

I will not buy another Marantz machine. The Pioneers are cheaper anyway !!!!

Pretty much every mag' raved about KI sig' CD players. Best under £1,000 etc etc etc

I own the CD6000KI.

Also own a Pioneer Precision amp - similar in concept but tuned by Tom Evans. SoIcertainly bought into the concept oftuned mainstream hi-fi!

The whole 'signature' thing is probably just clever marketing by Marantz.

I mean, these days do we really need anything more than a decent quality £99 DVD player?

fucking horrible.

Well the "el cheapo" Marantz CD player I bought from Shadow (AK) sounds very good, not strong on PRAT, but a lovely smooth player and at £180.00 new a hifi bargain. And the geriatric Marantz CD-75 Andi kindly donated to me for Charity sounds fine (given its 1984 vintage), so I don't know wht Marantz players you have heard.

Have you heard any HiFi at all Rudi? Or do you just post here to wind the fuck up out of pepple?
