Other Notes: "The more I listened the more I realized that this is one sweet solid-state linestage. You know you’re not quite listening to tubes but the 7S2 reproduces harmonic development and instrumental decay very well. In addition, it is wonderfully transparent to the source, allowing one to see deeply into, and navigate through, the maelstrom of symphonic complexity and follow the musical lines to their full development. Along with this transparency comes the ability to reproduce the weight and authority that a full orchestral recording can possess–like some of the Reference Recordings and Telarcs that I’ve been enjoying recently. It is also notable that poor recordings are slightly more listenable, but there’s no doubt you will still hear their faults. It will not color them sweet.
Is the Marantz perfectly neutral? In a word, almost. After all, nothing is perfectly anything. I will say that there is a house sound to the two Marantz products that says ‘music’ to me. Finding the right words is very difficult, but in addition to all the compliments I’ve already heaped on this very fine product, I would have to say ‘refinement’ comes to mind, as well as the previously mentioned ‘sophistication’." - Audiophilia
