The reviews are out there, simply Google them.
Your choice will depend on whether you want an analogue amplifier or need digital facilities, they are two very different items

PM7200 is still a good amp, but has obvious signs of cost cutting in stock form, such as poorly performing and noisey opamps in the preamplifier stage, and bad output connectors, these are easy to change and make a massive upgrade to the sound quality.

If you are wedded to Marantz and you don't need the network capabilities go for the PM8006. From a sound perspective I would suggest seeing if you can audition it, perhaps in comparison with a competitor or two Eg. Audiolab 8300A, NAD C368. This will help to ensure you get the sound you like the best for your budget.
