I have the Eleven iii. This is my first 100w+ receiver. Although my wood case looks like it spent time in prison...the face is immaculate. I was so concerned when I found it on Craig's while on vacation...it had so many more options then any receiver I had tried that I was sure something was broken. And I wouldn't find any issues in the 10 min tryout. Everything checked out.

My first stereo was a mint 2220b. Love Marantz - bass is best. My 2220b doesn't hold a candle to the Eleven. It's punchy and crisp. And maybe this is a 20w vs 125w difference. But a low volume they are still not the same.

Before I got the Eleven, I found a 5 gang Marantz 2120 tuner. This is the high end tuner minus the oscilloscope. I switch between the two and can't tell the difference between them. Kenwood ham radio spilled over into these FM tuners.

I power two sets of speakers at the same time. Technics SB-2766 on main, SB-2744 on B...and once I find the SB-2722...they will go on C.

Good high end Technics are under powered by the amps they were sold with. I cannot believe the sound that can come out of these speakers when they are finally powered by a monster.

I run the amp on dim lights all the time. I don't want to have to change bulbs. They require surgery to change. Meters dance to input or output.

There is only one negative to this stereo on aesthetics or performance...this thing is so large and heavy that it will not fit in any regular stereo stand. So heavy it doesnt belong on anything made of particle board or anything IKEA can engineer. It will dominate any shelf, desk, or unit. This isn't a problem for most audiophiles.

I will keep this for life...and won't worry about it failing so I can recap it.

re: Model Eleven

No output to speakers. What is the problem?
