It isn't often big hi-fi boxes get us hot under the collar, but this new Marantz duo have left us embarrassingly sweaty with anticipation.The reason why is positively superficial - they look lovely and are finished in ridiculously high-end platinum. What you see on the top is the SA-15S1, a CD player that spins ultra high quality Super Audio CDs - the ones tucked away in the corner at HMV - and wows friends with a cute blue backlight.Below is the PM-15, an amp that eschews fancy modern surround sound for the delights of stereo speakers. It's capable of pumping 140W to each speaker thanks to sterling internal components borrowed from Marantz's pricier behemoth amplifiers.Both are on sale for your delectation right now and they'll set you back a cool £1100 each.Related stories:LG's high def monster cinemaTeac hi-fi has high-tech feature
