Summary: Arrived very well packed. Once hooked up, the sound is just amazing! And plenty of inputs for just about anything you could want or need. This Marantz PM5004 Integrated Stereo Amplifier put my old SAE to shame!
Summary: I bought from a local dealer in Lithuania. I auditioned it and liked it on the spot - classic Marantz signature, spacious, detailed and dynamic sound. I had also just purchased a Pioneer N-70A streamer (which I chose over Marantz NA-8005 for various reasons).
Summary: Pairs nicely with iPod Classic and (good) headphones. Ditch the earbuds and discover what your MP3s really sound like. Also a good turntable for those resurrecting their LP collection like me. Amp has a seventies/eighties sound and look, which enhances the whole vinyl experience.
This amp was a better option for me than going through the vintage route

Summary: Bought to pair with my SL 1200 and a pair of Whaferdale Diamond 10.1. I got my SL 1200 brand new in late 2008, and always knew that my entry level Teac receiver/amp and Sony speakers were a budget compromise.
Summary: I thought that I had a good amp, then I bought this. It blows the class D (Fiio A1) I was using out of the water. Very balanced frequencies but still has character. Plenty of power. Only complaints are the use of plastic on the front corners and knobs.
The Marantz lives up to its reputation from 40 years ago. Excellent Buy!!!

Summary: My Pioneer Integrated Amp is fading after 40 years. Having replaced my DUAL Direct Drive Turntable with a Staunton T.90 Direct Drive, I needed to get a new IA. The Marantz lives up to its reputation from 40 years ago.
