Summary: This is my first "real amplifier",before this my only experience was with locally made amplifiers and t-amps,i got the used marantz amplifier in a insane deal from a guy who has a audio gear that will make any budget audiophile drool.I experienced my first true 7.1 surround system in my life with...
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.
Summary: I own this unit. I purchased this a year ago with top of the line Polk speakers. I also purchased a marantz turn table and the sa8005 CD player. They all have been performing great, I am very happy with the sound and feel this was a great value. I would recommend this setup to friends.
Summary: I really like this amplifier. Its sound is crystal clear with my pair of Time Windows. The power is more than adequate to drive me from my large Victorian living room. There are no extra "features" that I will never use.
