Question Yamaha DSP-3070 vs Marantz PM6005/Simlar

Hi all,

Picked up a Yamaha DSP-3070 recently which I am using only as a 2 channel Hi-Fi amp, it completely blew me away how good it sounds compared to my previous set-up of a Beresford Caiman TC-7520SE into a recapped (Elna Silmic II/Orange Drops) Denon UPA-F07 Amplifier

Audio Source = Computer - Flac - foobar - wasapi event - QED Performance graphite optical out.

Q1. How would this amp compare to a modern Amplifier like the Marantz PM6005.

Q2. What do you think I would have to spend on a modern 2 channel Amplifier to reach the same audio quality of the Yamaha DSP-3070 in 2 channel mode.

Many Thx in advance

1. Most likely inaudible difference in a blind test. If not, one of them is a deeply flawed amplifier, and since you like yours, it can be assumed it isn't.

2. N/A. Price is irrelevant for sound quality. High price does not equal high sound quality, and vice versa.
