All the best,
Marantz tells us the power amplifier section is built in a dual mono arrangement, with each channel powered from a dedicated supply. In a break from tradition, the power amplifier circuitry is Class D, but designed from the ground up by Marantz to deliver a suitably high-end performance.

The Marantz Reference PM11S3 & SA11S3 is a bargain compared to the new Reference 10 Series.
Also look at the price point $9,000 MSRP for combination price Marantz PM-11S3 & SA-11S3.
Verse 6k more now replaced with Marantz Reference PM-10 & SA-10 @ $15,000 for inferior Class D technology and a step down sound ultimately.
The PM-11S3 & SA-11S3 is the winner and will be the classic Marantz pieces audiophiles will want to keep.
Sorry to say the new Marantz PM-10 & SA-10 will be in the dog pound.
That's cool. If I had the means I would grab a PM-10 in a heartbeat. The class-d amp I'm using now is excellent. I'm confident Marantz ha made an excellent class-d amplifier. I look forward to you impressions.
I'm also more than a little envious that you have the MA9S2/SC7S2 combo as well. Enjoy all that great gear.
geared4me, What amp are you using with the SC-7S2? I think that pre is really good and I do not intend to ever sell mine. If you could find the MA9S2 mono blocks I would think that would be the way to go. However, I will receive the PM-10 this weekend and look forward to hearing how it sounds on my JBL 4365 speakers.
I heard a Marantz PM-10 a couple of weeks ago. Thought it sounded incredible.
Powerful, clear, realistic & none of the Class D affectations that forced me to sell my Devialet 250 Pro.
I’d like to hear more before diving in, but on that listening I’d say it’s in another league to the Devialet.
I want one!
