Dither is used to avoid artifacts of digital signal processing. Side effect of dither is that Signal/Noise ratio is slightly reduced or artifacts do not completely disappear. Set as desired.

Dither 1

This is a Marantz developed dither that reduces digital artifacts while reducing SNR only very little.

Dither 2:

Classic dither that reduces all artifacts but also reduces SNR.


Highest SNR but digital artifacts may slightly influence soundstage or colorate the sound.


The Dither function does not work when playing a Super Audio CD or DSD audio source.
