Marantz PM7005 vs Cambridge Audio CXA60

The 7005 is the slightly more power amp with 60 watts into 8 ohms, not to be snuffed at really as it will give a bit more headroom. The 7005 was the predecessor of the award winning pm8005. I suppose it is still regarded as being in a higher tier than the 6006 model range. Would have been quite a bit more expensive than the 6006 on it's original release.

I would go for the Marantz. They have a better reputation for reliability over CA.

I would also say it depends on your listening habits. The CXA60 has a very entertaining “live” sound but can become tiring after a while. The Marantz may lack the dynamics but is easier to listen to for longer periods.

Thank you for your help!
Do you have any information about the new Cambridge Audio AXR100?
Google is your friend. I've never had an interest in CA products.
