HIFI WORLD - "This is a rare player, greater than the sum of its parts."

Imagine, if you will, going into a shop to buy a CD player for £500 or under, and - instead of being offered three wildly different, mutually exclusive models from three non-sympathetic manufacturers -
the retailer shows you a trio of models identical but for details which enhance the performance.
At extra cost, of course. Prices? The basic CD-63 can be found for around £270, the '63SE for £350. The K.I. Signature? £500.
A nice point spread, so to speak, guaranteed to space the models sufficiently to avoid confusion. And provided that the retailer has three copies of the same CD,
you can feed all three versions of the Marantz into the same line-level preamp or integrated and switch from one to the other for perfect comparisons.
How so? Since they all work from the same remote control, setting up synchronised playback is a breeze.
Fundamentally, a CD-63 is a slim-line budget player jam-packed with every facility expected of a CD player, plus remote volume control (great if you have a pre-amp or integrated lacking said convenience item).
It uses Philips' CDM12.3 three-beam laser assembly with digital servo-drive (DSD), a single-bit converter and Hyper Dynamic Amp Modules (HDAM) to reduce noise in the analogue output section.
The latter devices are probably the secret to the CD-63's supremacy in the entry-level arena.
What Ken Ishiwata has added to the SE's recipe to justify the Signature tag are a new, over-sized ultra-low-impedance toroidal transformer, a completely copper-plated anti-vibration chassisand improved copper versions of Marantz's HDAMs.
To give you some idea of what the K.I. Signature HDAMs do, they improve on the 80V m/sec slew rate of cheap'n'nasty op amps to typically 15V m/sec.
Only two external details identify the K.I. Signature: the flashy name plate on the front and large copper-coloured areas visible underneath. It's this which is particularly Ishiwata-esque, harking back to the high-end Marantz CD players with which he's been involved,
including the CD-12/DA-12 which started the ball rolling. The overkill power supply, matched components and greater resistance to vibration are also Ishiwata trademarks, so the K.I. Signature labelling is no mere conceit. (It should also be known that, belatedly, Marantz Europe has recognised Ken's deserved pan-European celebrity status and its market value. And putting a designer's name on a product must be a first of some sort for a Japanese electronics firm, even one that's Dutch-owned.)
Given that I keep a '63SE as my budget reference and a bunch of duplicated CD titles for such comparisons, I was able to A/B myself into oblivion. Alas, the results were more difficult to confirm because the gains were of the most subtle sort, and certainly not as gross as the difference between a standard '63 and the 'SE. It's a situation which, ironically, provides us with another unique opportunity: an audition consisting of the standard CD-63II versus CD-63SE versus K.I. Signature provides painful proof of 'The Law of Diminishing Returns'.

The K.I.'s bass is richer but better-controlled, despite identical estension. The dynamic range seems wider, with low-level sounds enjoying greater security. The midband is warmer and less clinical. And similar soundstages or not, the K.I. offers greater stage depth when the recording demands it.
