Denon dcd 110 or Marantz saki Ruby?

So the title explain itself. I’m planning to upgrade my sacd player, currently an oppo 103. Recently launched the Denon dcd 110 and the not so new Marantz saki Ruby (I Will not consider the 30 which is lower than the SA KI). Im looking mostly for more musicality, more extended and deeper, more engaging sound. Which of them you think could bring better this sound?
Thank you!

Over on YouTube there's a Norwegian reviewer who says the new Denon DCD110 is more energetic, punchy and dynamic, compared to the Marantz model 30 SACD player.

As for the Ruby, I would assume that it would have the Marantz house sound, like the model 30. 

Only one way you're gonna know and that is to try it out in the context of your system.

All the best,
I own a Ruby, purchased in July this year. If sacd is prominent in your listening, like mine, I highly recommend the Ruby, if you can find one. I have a collection of around 2000 discs, 70% sacd. The Ruby is lights out good.
I have the Ruby as well and SACD's sound great but the really cool aspect of this player is that CD's sound better than I have ever heard them before. There is a "solidity" and dynamic swing to the sound of music through this player. This is Ken Ishawata's swan song.  I great end to a marvelous audio designing career!
Thank you for your comments, I will keep looking for a Ruby.
Hi there,
I have a Ruby and the Service repair manual.
You can buy a SA-KI Ruby, SA-12 SE, SA-12, or SA-12 OSE.
They are all the same except for the copper plating on Ruby and SA12 OSE. The filter settings are restricted on the Ruby and the SA.-12 SE.
I think the SA-12 and the SA-12 OSE are for Japan only.
Just you have a black or gold Ruby SA-KI?
I have a black Ruby SA-KI number 819/999
At first I was very disappointed, the sound was not good at all.
My old Sony XA5ES(modified) sounded much better.
What have I wasted money on? Expensive crap.
I thought burn-in may make it sound a little better.
I gave it a chance before I decided if I should sell it for half price.
I used Audacity and an online tone generator to make a mix of frequency sweep (5hz-20124hz at 0db(full signal volume) and used a usb mem-stick as source.
It played for 100+ hours (my tube-amp turned off but connected)
I waited and waited and finally I dared to sit down and listened.
WOW what a difference.
After this treatment the sound is SO much better.
Now it sounds BETTER than the Sony, smoother and more life-like.
This player is in need of some serious burn-in.
My Ruby is a keeper.


So glad it worked out for you. The sound has a dynamic drive unlike any disc spinner I’ve had. A musical authority! It’ plays music. Not about treble, midrange, bass etc. just the music. It is as if I went to a more powerful amplifier.
