    Marantz MA9S2

    Anyone heard these monoblocks? I am thinking of these with the 1400 Arrays with NO way to test before I buy.

    Hi Thom ,

    anyone who is selling something like that without giving you the opportunity to audition them deserves
    a wide birth . 10 k is a lot of money to spend on someone's word

    Just my opinion !

    good luck , Rich

    Actually less than 7K with a warranty from the source who happens to be a dealer.

    Worthy? I don't know. That is why I ask. I know that I may not find my answer unless I actually hear them myself...........

    I have aint heard them on JBL, just some little 2 way things in a store here in London . Guido rates them highly - I trust those ears . He's not let me down yet ...

    I cant help but think 7 k would buy you some nice Pass gear ..... Just my bias opinion !

    They are a good price though ,60% of the European price ... You could always flip them and not lose much if you don't care for them.

    Thanks for the heads up. That price is for one. They are monoblocks. Need two for stereo.

    Just some clarification---these are a dealer demo-not brand new.

    Got 'em. Now I need to find a place to put 'em. I believe I will need a new audio rack. Man, they are nice looking. Can't wait to hear them.

    well...short update for now...these mono blocks are what i expected. detailed, defined, articulate, tight bass on the arrays. wwoooww! mc402 is great-really is ( esp. on the S/2600's) but these bad boys are in a different league....short time but it just feels right.

    Tight

    Not quite in the order I wanted. Bad quality Blackberry photos.
