I got mine in a used market. It's an awesome product marantz has ever created. no doubt. It's even better than the pm17mkII ki I've used. It's SA technology (i guess) even sounds better with any ordinary cd I've experienced. It simply reminds me of my earlier krell power-pre combo with less power and slightly lack of bass. It also sounds even better to my ear than my another set up consists of sugden a28b. I'm not into vinyl so my words only goes for digital music only.
