So, those of us that have been in this hobby a while often hear people say "sounds good to me". Then some of us say outloud "compared to what ?" I wanted to know once in for all if I was listening to what I thought I was... Took me a while but I found a reasonably priced Integrated Amp that is modern with the same"ish" power rating...Is newer better...? Does my amp sound like a bag of cats and I just don't know it...? In this corner : The mid 70's Marantz 1152 DC (complete resto about 3 years ago) And in this other corner a Marantz PM 8005 Both are roughly 70 watts into 8 ohms Let the games begin.... Anyone wanna go out on a limb with a prediction...?
