TechRadar's verdict

"A welcome newcomer which offers some classic Marantz sounds in a classy and attractive package, with intelligently thought-out features too. Slightly, but certainly not oppressively characterised"
For
  • Excellent low bass and admirably clean treble and midrange
  • An unusually even-handed approach to different musical styles
  • USB input a nifty plus
Against
  • A slight added warmth in the upper bass may not be to every taste and minutely compromises detail
  • Highest treble just a shade shut-in too
