    Amp to replace Technics SU-V1X?

    Marantz PM7200 service

    HI, I have a marantz pm7200. It must be 20 odd years old and was bought second hand. I know that it's supposed to be a good amp but I think it needs a service. A service will cost over £150 though. My question is how much can a service improve the sound of an amp.? Or should I just cut my...

    Considering Marantz (without Ken Ishiwata)

    Let's begin by relaying here Ken's message to the public which he entrusted also to me, shortly after ending his 41 years working for Marantz, nearly a year ago: "Ken Ishiwata thought Marantz was Ken Ishiwata and Ken Ishiwata was Marantz… He never thought this day would come to say goodbye…"...

    Hiya all! I've been dwelling back and forth between what bookshelf speakers I want to get for a new "budget system from scratch" to my 25kvm (~269sqft) living room and the choice fell on the ELAC Debut B5.2. Now all I need is an amplifier to get things going. It needs to have a built in DAC...
