Dear Naimees, my old and beloved Marantz SR 8002 died (again). After a power supply failure and a repair lat year, now the power amplifier section died (Actually on a home and alone session of MAD MAX Fury Road). How can I now this? Because the front via Superuniti is well and alive. Therefore, it is stereo only in movies for now. I already miss the voice presentation from the N-Cent, which is a clear indication that I 'am not ready to give up on AV. However, I like the HD-Sound Standards in...
The SR 8002 is from 2007/08 and is very solidly build. I like the sound, however, I have never been able to compare it to other brands. The receiver is able to decode Dolby TrueHd, etc, which I found a revelation back in the day coming from DVD and compressed formats. I will never plunge into 3Dsound. Thats the reason I like to keep the Marantz. The used NAP 175 I found are all around 10 years old, still expansive, and if you consider recapping, even more so (and the required cable). I 'am...
I like Marantz, but had better luck with Denon, AVR-4800 sounded better thru Naim 175 etc than a newer Marantz AV pre. Later Marantz boxes are probably OK. But older odd pieces from all makers can be surprisingly good. Nick
My NAP-V175 has performed flawlessly with KEF-Q10 and Totem Model One Signatures; I have not checked their ohm ratings. 4 ohms is not uncommon; I would not worry. No Hi-Fi systems are guaranteed to perform optimally with indifferent wiring. It is a good idea to adhere to Naim’s recommendations, whether you buy their products or not, IMHO. Nick
...a subsequent question: one of colleagues told me that naim power amplifier have problems with speaker cable running together in close vicinity like in a cable channel. My rear channel cables are running together in one of those channels for about 10 to 15m. Would that be a problem for a NAP 175 with 2 rear speakers with 4 ohm impedance?
