Denon 3910 vs Maranz ud 7007 as players of SACD discs

Dear friends,

Has anyone compared the Denon DVD 3910 with the Maranz UD 7007 in SACD discs playback?


I have a Denon 3910 modified by John Tucker as an Exemplar. It is quite ancient now and I have replaced the laser and the tubes but it still holds its own against any universal player I have heard but I have not compared it to the Marantz.

Dear markwatkiss,

Do you hear  some preferences for Denon over Marantz? What is the sonic advantage, how would you describe it?
