Ok..I should be home by then....lifting my glass then
Sounds like a plan!
@Slippers-on The PM8006 is now showing out for delivery! Gonna leave work a little early and get it setup and then Lagavulin time around 6:00pm PST.
Depending on your expectations, I think this line of Marantz integrateds in their respective price ranges are class leaders. Enjoy.
Expectation is somewhat high as the amp it is replacing is really nice sounding but I am tired of the problems with it.
I'll be raising my glass in celebration !
Are we cool? Started a little early.....Here's to you and the new gear! I felt some 30's Woody Herman was cool for this moment over here on a Marantz Reference amp in celebration of your new Marantz!
So far the only good thing I can say about the PM8006 is it is dead silent with no input.
Wait! Did I start the party too early?
It is a bit early here, I will take a quick picture, post it then ready to pour in about 45 minutes. Maybe the Lagavulin will make it sound better.
Is it plugged in?
Well...you know, runin to bring it up to speed and specks...then you will really be enjoying it. Amps take time to come on point! But we just raising glasses.
Oh snap! You west coast...im fly over....2 hours difference. See...I told you I started the party early....And this single malt is mighty tasty!
I will get started shortly. Only 4:30pm here.
Here are the pics...glass still empty though
Raising the glasses is most important!
Thats a nice amp! And im sure its going to fill a need! Thats ok on the empty glass....mine has been filled and emptied a few times for ya! .
Don't mind me......im just sipping Highland park and listening to tunes. Lost 2 family members last week so its been a little ruff. Your celebration is good about now, helps take my mind off things a bit.
Glass is filled and ready to go!
Sorry to hear about the loss...let's just enjoy some tunes tonight. Tomorrow I will swap my Onkyo into the main system and try the Marantz in the bedroom. Maybe the Marantz just doesn't play well with the Elac Carina Towers.
That little Marshall Bluetooth speaker sounds better then the PM8006 with the Elac Carina's.
The Lagavulin is very smokey.
that’s super weird. Is there an impedance switch or something?
The Marantz will be fine. Just has to runin a bit and you have to get accustom to the warm sound i'm sure. If its for your musical pleasure, just plug it into its permanent resting place and let it play. After a while it will come on song and be on point. You may even find i ta tad warmer than the Vincent.
