Agree completely. Life is too short. I had one for a month, after the second time I had to start over, I called crutchfield and got a return authorization number. I relented and kept it another couple of weeks...but when it went out a third time, back it went. I was happy with the sound and the price, but I replaced it with a Cambridge 851N and am much happier with the sound and the interface, especially when streaming computer files. It has never given even a hickup ( had it about a month now). I would look for Marantz to replace or upgrade the 6005. These are not isolated examples, and once your reputation slips...let me add I love the Marantz sound, have a SA8004 that has served me flawlessly for years, and a Marantz receiver in my home theatre system.
