According to Sony's press release "The TA-AN100 will be available from June 2023 priced at approximately €1,000 / £900".From the spec on that there is absolutely no way that's a £1000 amp. The Marantz Cinema 70 is better specified for a recommended retail price of £850 and the NR1711 is cheaper still at £799. Honestly? This feels like an attempt at price establishing rather than a price anyone would ever actually pay. I wish I was surprised that What HiFi aren't calling this out.
Well, as always the same problem. There are too few speaker outputs. What if I want back surround and six Dolby Atmos speakers, plus bi-amping and zone 2 and zone 3? I can't afford such an amp if there is one🤬Marantz 70S has the plugs for my use but too few watt. I have German Quadral+ speakers and they need effect. BTW, is it TA-AN100 or TA-AN1000?
