Power Amp advice needed please.


Novice Member
Hello everyone, hope you're enjoying the sunshine...........
I have just taken delivery of a Marantz SR7015 and am thinking about getting a power amp to go with it. Would the Marantz MM8055 be an ideal partner? What would you suggest?
I have been advised against using my Marantz PM8006, So will prob be advertising this for sale in the classifieds soon..
Any thoughts and suggestions warmly welcomed.

I would get a good 2-channel amp for your mains, like the MM7025 and have the SR7015 handle the other channels.
The marantz power amps are not very good. Look at something else.

Apologies all, I did mean Marantz MM8077
What speakers are you driving? Do you even need better 7 channel power amplification?

What's wrong with the PM8006? It has an HT bypass (called "power amp direct mode") so would be the obvious upgrade for the stereo speakers. Since you already have it, using it would be free of cost.
