I have two of these. One had problems, ergo the second one. Both ended up going to my audio magician. Both sound fabulous. One replaced a Marantz 2325, a receiver I rebuilt and truly loved. It says a lot that it was replaced by the 9000g. On a pair of JBL L100s, the 9000 sounds demonstrably better. I also replaced a Kenwood 7200 with a 9000g. No contest. This is in no way meant to downplay the quality of the replaced receivers. I have read numerous reviews of the 9000g, some of them ugly. I believe these bad reviews were written by people who were upset that Marantz dared to put a digital display on a receiver. Then again, there were reviews that said these were the best receivers Marantz ever built. I read one that said the owner thought the 9000 sounded better than a 2500! High praise, indeed. I only know that I was ready to tear down my JBLs to replace the crossovers, until I changed receivers. Across the audio spectrum, they've never sounded this good. It was well worth the price to buy these, and have them brought up to spec. I have had dozens of receivers (Macs & Revox included), and have NEVER owned a better sounding unit!

My brother bought the one I have now when he was stationed in Japan around 1980. I am not sure if Marantz ever released them in the U.S. This has the distinction of being Marantz's first Digital Tuner equipped receiver. I think he said he bought it for around $800.00. I think it is pretty rare. The specs are nice and it sounds great!
