I have to admit something, something that I never thought that I would do. I am in love with this Marantz integrated amplifier that I saw installed in a bar a few days back. It has everything I like in an integrated amplifier and with Marantz’s reputation for quality, I think that it will serve me well should I ever come across one of them being sold in the market. This amplifier is able to put out 45 watts into 8 ohms per channel and weighs only 7.5 kilograms. I was thinking of getting a pair of all-weather Yamaha speakers and I was just looking for an amplifier to drive them. It looks like this is one such amplifier that fits the bill. The only issue is that Marantz is not making this amplifier anymore. It is a discontinued product. But no matter. Now too scour the Internet for this. I am sure that I can pick one up somewhere!
