    i have a 5508 which has been doing the job for around 3 years now , i did look at upgrading to the 5509 but it didn't have enough of a difference for the price is there any news of a new one ??
    the 5509 is a bit long in the tooth now would be nice to see something worthy of an upgrade

    thanks

    The PRSC5509 is on a 2 year cycle so the earliest you will see a replacement will be October.

    I would say the Marantz AV8801 is the current one to look at

    If you compare the 5509 and 8801 without EQ, you'll find the 8801 a better sounding product.
