Marantz Integrated Amplifiers
35 or 75 luscious watts per channel. Great flexibility (like separate amp and preamp inputs). Super build quality. The 1150 has been my main amp since October. It has driven every speaker I have thrown at it beautifully. The 1070 had an intermittent channel cutting problem that hid from my tech guy for months. He thought I was crazy! When he finally heard the problem Saturday (when it finally manifested itself to him), he fixed it promptly. It sounds beautiful. I owned this model when I was 16 (traded up from a 1040, my first amp), and should have kept it (easy to say now!).
