    Has anyone bought any of these receivers or given them a demo? AVland has both in stock for GBP 299.95 and 379.95 resp. Waiting to hear some on the new Marantz range.

    Are you sure they have them in stock? No one else seems to have them, and was told they were released at the end of the year by AV-land, and next month by Marantz.

    Hope someone demo's these soon. I would, but i live in Germany and the stores here are still trying to get rid of the older models.

    That's interesting. I have emailed AV-Land, and they are saying that Marantz have said that the 4500 and 5500 are available now. All the other companies I have spoken to though have said that it is not yet available, so they can't give a price on it yet, let alone having it in stock. I did speak to a manger of a Sevenoaks Hifi branch over the weekend though, and he said that he was off to the official Marantz launch tommorrow (Tues), so I think we could see them hitting the shops soon in the UK.

    I think that explains why you have not had any other feedback to this thread yet, but hopefully people will be demoing them soon.

    Ricky :clap:

    I have just spoken to the manager at Sevenoaks Hifi (who went to the launch yesterday), and he managed to get a brief listen to the receiver, but did not manage to get much more information. He was told that they would be realeased mid to end Oct, but there was no pricing on them yet (by Sevenoaks Sound and Vision anyway), but would be very soon.
