Beautiful equipment, makes me drool just a touch.
It is beautiful, especially in Champagne gold, but it's also exceptionally well engineered and built. I have a PM-11S1 that's nine years old now, and it's not only been a flawless performer, but that 'meager' 100wpc (well, it does double into 4 ohms) had absolutely no problem driving a pair of Magnepan 3.7s (after the changes in the mancave). It wasn't just up to the task, but it made those Maggies sound glorious. The Def Tech STS speakers are back in that bedroom now, which also sound wonderful with that amp.

The non Reference Marantz gear isn't too shabby, either. I already had an SA8260 when I bought the PM-11S1 and just couldn't justify replacing it with an SA-11. I eventually did have to send my SACD player back to Marantz for the dreaded TOC issue with that model, but there have been no issues since it came back (about 8 years ago). I thought I had a problem with my UD8004 (the universal player in the mancave) at the tail end of its warranty period. The authorized repair center replaced the pickup assembly, indicating that its output was below spec. When I got it back, I still had the same issue, which turned out to be my HDMI cable, even though it wasn't carrying the audio and only SACD playback was affected - weird. Fortunately, Audioquest replaced it for free (out of warranty), as it's a ~$600 cable!

Hi Robert and other Schackters, as well.

Here is a question: Marantz CD 6006 or Cambridge Audio CXC Transport, to be connected to Yamaha Aventage RX-A1030 AVR?
Yamaha AVR is running ES9006 SABRE DAC from ESS Technology. Main speakers are Martin Logan EM-ESL hybrid electrostatics.


Thank you.
Zoran
