I heard this is the place to be for Marantz questions and I have a question that hopefully folks can help me out with. I have a few vintage 70's Marantz Receivers that I've picked up over the years (2226B, 2252, 2265B). Currently, I'm using my 2265B as my main 2-channel unit in my den. I previously had a Yamaha A-S701 and was completely unsatisfied with the sound of it (way too "sterile" vs the older Marantz units). I'm in need of a unit in another location in the house that's more modern and one that the kids and wife can play with. It'll do vinyl, streaming, CD, etc. I was looking really hard at the PM8005 and PM8006 Int. amps, but no one has them around to listen to. Obviously they probably won't duplicate that sound from the 70's, but are they even remotely close? I read thoughts of these on the internet and opinions are all over the place on them. Some say the Bass is lacking, some say they sound scratchy, etc. All seem to agree that the phono is decent and they have decent power. Anyone with any experience on the PM8005/8006 units? I'm not going to use a sub, so if the bass is lacking it might be an issue. On my 2265B if the bass is 3/4 the way up it runs you out of the room (which sometimes I don't mind). Buying one from the online retailers for a demo is really my last resort, but it may come to that. Otherwise, should I be looking at a different brand or model? Thanks.
