I know the Marantz has had quite a bit of coverage on here, but i have just a quick one, will it drive the RX-1's? i've been reading the review of them which says they have a nice warm sound, or does anyone else have any suggestions?
I have exactly this set up, the M-CR603 drives the speakers without problem to very high levels if required. My room size is approx. 7 x 4 m.
Sound wise in my opinion it is crisp and clear not warm to me. Bass response is well extended, exceptionally clean and well controlled and my speakers are only 11cm from back wall and to me there is no boom.
I play a lot of violin music and it sounds just right to me.
