Is an old amp a good upgrade? (PM7000)

My old Technics SU-A700 is starting to have issues which may not be worth repairing. I found a Marantz PM7000 that won't cost a lot, I'm wondering how it compares (sonically) to the current models like PM7005 or PM8005? I can't imagine there were revolutionary improvements at this level (other than features like 7005's built in DAC).

I've never heard a Marantz amp that sounds terrible. If it's cheap get it, nothing ventured nothing gained
