I'm using this with McIntosh amps (MC275LE, MC205) and it interfaces with them beautifully, having the 12V power on/off connections needed and the balanced low level outputs. The DAC does an outstanding job of rendering all the various movie and FLAC codecs and I'm getting amazing SNR and dynamic range.
The Airplay support is seamless - the unit listens to the network while "off" and pops on transparently when I target it with music from iTunes or my iPhone, which is not always true of these kind of systems. I sometimes use a third party iPhone app for a remote called "DeRemote" that enables easy access to all processor functions and *instant* volume management.
The Audyssey automatic room tuning works very well, although it suffers from the same issue that all room tuners I've used have: they can't properly set the subwoofer volume. Mine set the subwoofer to -12db, the minimum setting, and it was still so high that I got clipping. I don't think it's possible to get a proper subwoofer setting from a microphone with such a tiny aperture, but this is a problem with all such things...
The blue light ring in the front is a little ... cheesy, although it is small. I have something against blue LEDs anyway, I think they're overused.
....other than that, it's a keeper....
I have never owned anything but separates and this was a long overdue replacement for a dying Adcom GTP880.
I am running a Carver TFM 75 driving a pair of Carver Silver Editions up front, 2 Carver TFM6C's driving JBL 2600's for sides and surrounds and another Carver TFM6C driving a Tannoy Mercury Custom center channel with 2 Sunfire Subwoofers.
Connection was easy and MOST importantly, once connected and turned on, utter silence, no hums, buzzes, or idle nose at all.
The enclosed owners manual CD loaded slowly and was difficult to navigate, it jumped several pages at a time rather than scrolling 1 page at a time so I downloaded one from the handy Marantz site and printed out all 190 pages. This is helped a great deal as the unit is very complex, offers a wide range of adjustments, and has some feature I was not familiar with. I read the sections I needed to use the Audyssey set up system and went to work. After 15 minutes the rig war ready to go. I must admit, the Audyssey system worked very well, only a minor tweak on the sub's was necessary. I did a lot of research and there is not much available in this price range, and nothing that comes close to this level of performance. I might not have dozens of extra inputs and wild surround schemes but it does all that it advertises to do and does it very well. I would give this unit AN A RATING.
