(y) if this is how music makes you feel.

May the Fourth be with you all!

(y) Great review from Christopher B! "The VP150 is an excellent center channel...

Any roadies / concert lovers out there think this is as cool as I do?

Let me start off and say wow. I recently got this off uBid. A brand new, not refurb, Marantz 8400 that the MSRP is about $1299 and I won it for $499 shipped.




Below were the test speakers. Budget Sony speakers that sound ok for a college student. Let me say, connecting these to the Marantz 8400, I didn't think it could sing like that. Can't wait to purchase the M60s and connect them to this bad boy. This was the receiver the Marantz 8400 is replacing. It is a Sony STR-DE545.



Now I can't wait to press the order button on the Axiom website. It says 5 weeks for the B-stock M60s, and I am growing impatient by the minute. The wait is killing me.

Nautec, press the a-stock button on the order page and you'll have em' by Friday. You know you can't wait 5 weeks. LOL
Nice find on the marantz. Hope it works well for you.

Indeed, nice looking receiver and remote at a great price. The gold coated inputs go nicely with the tablecloth.

I'll bet you only have to wait 2-3 weeks for the b-stock.

Five weeks from today is still sooner than five weeks from next week.
