Summary: I've own this receiver for about 2 years, and that period came to an end because it failed. The service light is blinking 8 times a second so that means I'd have to send it off to a Marantz dealer, and it is not covered under warranty. This is quite a disappointment for me from a quality standpoint. When you pay 1K for a receiver, you expect quality. I obviously didn't get it. I rated the receiver low for several other reasons 1.
