Marantz PM6003 review


Excellent amplifier and a worthy Award winner still

Looks, build, finish ; exciting, cohesive and adaptable sound

Does everything an amp should do and I was impressed with the sound quality, especially at the price. It was bought for my workplace, which isn't an ideal listening area, to replace a TEAC amp of a similar value, which was damaged by a faulty aircon...
