Hi, I currently have a Pioneer AX5ai which is very detailed, forward and punchy. I have likened the sound to Sony, only more detailed. Anyway, last week, I was over at fellow forum member Sick Boys place. He has a budget Marantz amp running Mission M72 speakers and I have to say that the sound blew me away.... Any opinions on the sound offered by Marantz when compared to Denon, Pioneer or Sony. I quite like the look of Kazmans amp... Cheers, Pete.
