Sorry to keep asking these questions but, as it appears, I may be on the verge to purchase an item that I have not yet heard-again. I can understand the opinions of such a transaction as foolish, yet here I am. The deal, as it stands, is less than 3K shipped from a dealer in CA.-however, this is his personal gear. Seems to be legit-on the 'gon.

My question (as usual): anybody heard this preamp and, if so, a opinion?

Thanks much.:)

The Marantz reference duo are simply fantasic with the JBL Arrays. I am (slowly) learning how upstream components can really affect the performance of these speakers:D. The only other area that I MAY change is the cdp-perhaps after I sell of some other gear. This level of performance ( to me ) is outstanding.:bouncy:

Thanks to all!!!

I needed a new project and bought a preamp kit from China, (PCB mounted). Look here. (http://cgi.ebay.com/Preamp-Pre-Amplifier-Kit-Ref-Marantz-SC7S2-HDAM-Module-/260793899296?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cb8871920) Very well built and whit good components. It measures very well and has very good sound. I am very surprised at how good it sounds compared to many high-priced preamps.

Why is this connected in any sense with a discussion on a specific Marantz piece of gear.

China Preamp kits should go in their own thread as they are not in the slightest way connected to Marantz, other than their ad's claim to be ...
