Default Marantz's new AV8801 11.2, balanced XLR in and Audessey XT32

Just got an advanced copy of the .pdf data sheet on this new flagship pre-pro.

Oops, the file is too large to attach so I put it at the top of this page.

Enjoy!

Ooh this is good news, but I'm hoping it may drop the 7005 a little closer to my price range on close out. Do we have a thread that sorts out the differences on the new models yet?

Here's the first review; I expect more reviews tomorrow and next week.

Not officially confirmed, but it looks like Marantz will begin releasing limited allotments of AV8801s next week.

Enjoy!

Above my price range but it's good to see that Marantz is finally putting Audyssey MultEQ XT32 in their Pre-Pros.

AV8801s have arrived and the only thing better than how these beauties look and are built is how they perform. This is the real deal.

Here's another review.

Enjoy!

Got mine up and running. This beast is out of control. I am hearing things I have never heard before. Even my wife noticed the difference instead of saying 'Its just another big black box thingy". Highly recommend this unit! It rocks!

Any suggestions on where to buy the 8801 at less than MSRP? Just under $3 grand would be a big help.

Thanks!

There several on ebay for < $2,700.00, supposedly NIB and not refurbished. Anyone have any experience or are familiar with the sellers?
