    I have a line on a pair of MA 700's from Marantz. I know very little about these though. I didn't see any info on the Marantz site (because they are discontinued).

    So, should I buy a pair of these for $700? or a pair of LeAmps for $500? or a pair of MA6100 for $___?

    I have a good idea what the LeAmps and 6100's offer, so if people could focus this thread on the 700's I'd appreciate it.

    I'm thinking about monos to power a pair of Diva 6.1s.

    Thanks

    The 700 is 200w into 8ohms.

    It bears the THX logo[same as the current THX Ultra],and basically it's a more powerful version if the MA-500[125w].

    When it was released it was praised for it's smooth top end clear mids, and better controlled bass then the MA-500 had.

    Original retail price was $499.00 a piece.

    I would get'em if I were you,for $700 a pair.
