"Great value for money. My speakers are alive now."


We used a Denon stereo amp for 8 years with a pair of Accusound AS-406 Mk II's and thought it was an "OK" sound. The Marantz makes my speakers jump out of their enclosures in stereo mode, absolutely awesome. I matched my existing fronts to a full...
