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.
