Hi folks.. Recently My Marantz AV9000 gave up the ghost. Its in for repair but things look grim (or expensive). The MM9000 power amp that I bought with it is still going strong and suits my speakers really well. My question is which option should I go for now? 1. Buy another AV preamp? 2. Sell the power Amp and buy an all in one? 3. Buy something like the Marantz 1501/1601 as my preamp? The reason I have an issue is I cant really afford to get something like the Marantz AV7005 or I'd repair the AV9000. Most equivalent preamps seem to be quite pricey. But I'm reluctant to lose the clarity and great sound I had from the AV/MM9000 and mordant short speaker combo. but at the same time im interested by getting HDMI switching and HD audio? (Not too worried about 3D switching.) I'd appreciate any advice. p.s. If your interested there were some solder issues with the connectors at the back of the AV on the phono outs and the main fault was that it just suddenly powered off and wouldn't power up any more. All cables and user accessible fuses checked, and fine. p.p.s The amp was purchased second hand in more auspicious times ! bit broke now.
