"What Hi-Fi" gave the PM6004 and its matching CD player glowing reviews, but I don't always trust the organizational reviewers. The reviews mentioned here were way over-the-top, especially for entry-level components:
Any initial thoughts, or experience with similar Marantz products?
I have the 8000 series components (amp and CD) and love them. I have had them for 5 years with no desire to upgrade. I do have a small miniwatt tube amp that I keep for driving other speakers when duty calls, but my main rig has used the marantz kit for the duration.
