More About the Amp
Art Dudley Stereophile Magazine "just because it's good—and it is good—but because it allowed me to hear the origins of the gear of today that I love the best. Indeed, many of the latter—even the Shindos, Fis, and other anachro-amps of my experience—sound very refined compared to the chunky, coarsely textured Marantz 8B. I guess we really have come a long way, even as the products of yesteryear remain valid in their own right. A Marantz 8B may not be an everyday amp, in the same sense that a 40-year-old Noval port is not an everyday beverage. But if I had a collector's budget, I'd buy an old 8B anyway and keep it for those cold summer nights when I wanted to listen to the Brahms Clarinet Quintet and contemplate autumn."
