I almost pulled the trigger on the Marantz pm8005, which at it's present price point is fantastic value and the perfect partner from my sa8005 spinner. It would be used as a power amp for the front speakers via my Denon X6200. The main reason for such a purchase would be the enhancement of stereo music, the 6200 is more than capable of outstanding filmatic sound. However, to engage and disengage the power amp you have to press and hold a button on the front facia. This presents a bit of a problem for me. The amp will have to sit on the bottom shelf of my cabinet making pressing and holding the button for the required three seconds something of a trial for my aged arthritic spine, so, unfortunately, I have all but discounted the Marantz. I am therefore looking for an integrated amp with HT bypass than can be accessed by using the remote. The Rega Elicit R I believe has this function and I would put this at the top of my budget. Any other suggestions would be welcome as long as the amp has the essential remote function.
