My beloved Marantz CD 5004 is beginning to act up and presumably in the final stages of its 10 year run. Wanting to replace it with the newest model, I headed over to an official online Marantz retailer. It looks like Marantz discontinued the 5000 series as there is ZERO internet presence. So, I looked at the CD 6007. Out of stock. I checked back about a month later. The expected date was pushed back even further. Strange. At some point, I'd like to invest in a nice integrated amp and the Marantz PM 8006 fits the bill. I checked availability online. THAT was out of stock too. BUT, it wasn't JUST the PM8006. Practically EVERY amplifier made by Marantz is out of stock. You literally CAN'T BUY THEIR PRODUCTS. I've heard that Dennon is owned by the same people that own Marantz so I looked at their CD players. Both affordable models are out of stock and the ship date for one is "unknown." Does anyone know what's happening over at Marantz? Sure, I can understand a product being backordered but practically their entire product line is unavailable. It's all very odd.
