    I went on the website for Marantz and I can't believe that there is only one dealer in all of Canada - in Pickering Ontario.

    Does anyone know where I could get an accurate dealer list for Ontario?

    Not sure of an accurate list, but I know that Gibson Sound and Vision sells Marantz. They are located in Waterloo.

    I don't know if this helps,but there is a box mover store called A&B Sound that carries Marantz. The only problem is that their stores are from BC to Manitoba (none in Ontario).Feel like going for a drive?[​IMG]

    There are about 2-3 dealers in the Niagara Region. Welland and St. Catherines. Thomas electronics and Gibby's.

    There are also quite a number in Metro Toronto. HiFi 2000, Great Metropolitan Sound, Bay Bloor, Eastview TV & Electronics, and I'm sure there are others I'm forgetting.

    Lenbrook is a distributor. And it irks me that they don't list dealers on their website. Same situation for Harman Kardon. And with H/K, they don't seem to want to reply to any e-mails I've sent asking them for authorized dealers in my area. In the era of the internet, I find not listing dealers for Canada absolutely stupid.

    Drew, HK answered my email every time. Problem is, answers always came from the distributor in Montreal. I could never communicate directly with HK in the U.S. Price of HK in Canada is outrageous. I hope this is not the case for Marantz.

    No sir, the pricing on Marantz receivers is more competitive. I can't rattle off what they are off the top of my head, but I think they present a better deal to Canadian consumers.

    That is good news to me, when I am ready to upgrade my Sony DA4ES, I will check out Marantz, NAD, Rotel and probably Denon as well. HK (AVR7200) used to be on top of my list but I am not about to accept a price penalty, just because I live in Canada.
