Is vintage Marantz good?
Reliability. Both of my vintage Marantz receivers are as solid and reliable as anything modern, and they’re already four decades old. I’ll go further: these units are built like tanks. To get anything this robust from a modern offering will cost you dearly.
Do Marantz receivers Sound good?
People opt for Marantz receivers because of their sound quality, which remains on point no matter what music genre you listen to. Though other brands work hard to achieve this encompassing sound effect, few actually manage to.
Why is vintage hifi so expensive?
Vintage audio equipment is expensive partly because of rarity (a lot of vintage gear has been discontinued) and partly due to the inherent quality and design required for its longevity. A vintage piece of gear must be of the highest quality to perform at the highest level decades after manufacture.
Is Marantz better than Rotel?
Movies were much more engaging and sounding much more dynamic through the Rotel. The GUI on the Marantz is much better than the Rotel RAP-1580. While Rotel prefers to call the RAP-1580 a surround amplifier processor but it is basically an av receiver without built-in radio/tuner.
Is the Marantz 2010 a good receiver?
The Marantz 2010 is a 10 watt-per-channel beast built on a smaller chassis and, typically, costing much less than the larger 22xx series receivers. Mine has served me trouble free every day for 13 years. My 2010 delivers enough volume to fill up my small office well beyond my personal loudness threshold (which is pretty loud).
Does the Marantz sr-7000 need an enlarger?
The Marantz SR-7000 manages to tuck all of these features (and more) into a sleek chassis measuring 18 by 6 1/4 by 18 1/8 inches and weighing a stout 32 pounds. Clearly, there’s no Swedish-made, pump-style receiver enlarger needed here.
What’s new with the Marantz sr8012?
This, paired with the AV industry’s latest array of technologies, enables more immersion, visual beauty and detailed power than ever before. When Marantz introduced the SR8012 at the 2017 CEDIA Expo, I had high hopes that they were serious about making a top-notch AV receiver with a meaty amp section again and I wasn’t dissapointed.
Which Marantz SR models support “pre-amplifier” mode?
