Acquired to replace a newer Marantz (PM50), I felt regret. And it has absolutely not been the case. This amp is amazing, as much by the fact that it is little known by its quality. I also have a NAD3020 enjoying an excellent reputation and, frankly, it is far below. Much faster in very powerful and detailed bass. Spent at Audio Precision, the marantz displays a distortion less than 0.01% over the entire audible spectrum, measured performance and not "manufacturer" of a model 25 years old (after adjusting the bias currents)!
No regrets, this is a very good amp.

I used this amp for the sound, the disco, and all the partying and we wanted music. 5 years later, I bought boxes Nuance (I had a very small budget) and I am still surprised at the sound quality of my System. I even tried the B & W DM 1400 of my father and I found that sound better than his amp silent H / K. ... Now I have Wharefedale EVO 30. This amp made the war and now I always use it to play music with my wife and children in the basement home. I am owner of 6 amps (H / K Citation 19, Hitachi, Sony pro, Electro Acoustic, and my Marantz) is with my H / K is the best amp I had. Strong, rich, and retailer. With its 90 watts per channel it is very powerful. I do not dpartirai ...
