    Hi all

    I have the Marantz SR-18 and I love this receiver very much. The sound is bright, clean and very musical. Unfortunately it is not powerful enough. Does anyone know any amp that will produce sound as similar as the marantz? Thanks very much for all info

    Ben,

    Why don't you pickup a couple of Marantz MA700 200W monoblocks?

    The Acurus stuff shares similar characteristics.

    Hi

    Try NAD. They are good across the whole line. Price is good They look plain but their sound is exceptional.

    Ben,

    I know, but the MA700s seem to be the best matching Marantz sonics with more power than the SR18 amps. You can find used MA700s on ebay and audiogon; maybe call our local harvey's and see if they have more in the chain.
