So, enter the Marantz which I was nervous about cause of the amp power difference 200 vs 150. Well, the Amp matches well with my Marantz 8802a in looks and performance. A much cleaner and detail sound than the Emotiva by far. The Emotiva is more dynamic, but at the cost of hearing the finer details.
I was shocked when I replayed my Amy Winehouse Blu ray disc and even flac files on my Usb cause all of them just sounded so detail, dynamic and quieter. My SvS ultra towers never sounded better.
Now, I had to throw in a movie and re watched the 4k Matrix which I just watched with the ol Emotiva xpa 5 and even that had better higher detail, fuller sounding and the sound stage seemed a lot wider.
So, I'm a very pleased person and think my movie and music have improved. Money , lots of money spent welland super fast delivery from IQ Home Entertainment.
My connections to the amp are all Audioquest Water XLR . The Matantz Amp and pre pro are plugged into a Audioquest Niagara 1000 using a Audioquest Thunder "powercable" which is plugged into a dedicated 20 amp line .
After I hooked it up, I tested it with some dynamic classical music and WOW! The sound was so full and crisp. We heard instruments that we had never heard before. Tremendous range.
The sound for movies and the TV also go through the system. Never better. A true Cineplex experience.
I am very pleased with the Marantz set-up. Worth every penny.
