Marantz or Rotel for Dynaudio?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I'm currently building a system and have a pair of dynaudio dm 2/6 speakers, I was just wondering what would be a good amp to match these?

I'm on a bit of a budget so the two I was considering was the Marantz PM6004 or the Rotel RA-10. Does anyone have any views on these or is

there something else I should be looking at?

I've auditioned the PM6004 integrated amp on a number of speakers (Elac, Jamo C803 & B&W 683) and was quite impressed with the sound quality. The power output is not huge, however, it seemed to produce good volume an all the speakers tested. Dyns generally demand a fair amount of power, although the DM2/6 are 6ohm (unlike most other Dyns at 4 ohm) so may be an easier load for the amp.


I've not heard the RA-10 but I am looking at Rotel power amps as a possible option to drive my Dyn Focus monitors.

Do either of these have pre- outs? Maybe you can consider using them as integrated for now, but keep an option open for pre/power down the track.

      G'day folks!
      New member and first post. 🙂
      Picked up a Marantz 1060 and wanted your thoughts on suitability for restoration. Doesn't look like it's been messed about with so I'm guessing all components are original and more than a little tired! Currently the RH channel is dead and adjusting the VR does not shift the DC offset from 2.2mv. LH channel adjusted fine to 7.5mv.
      I'd really value your opinions on weak points in this amp and where to begin troubleshooting. Happy to recap and upgrade electrolytics but any other components I should look to change out immediately?  I've a little experience with vintage Sansui but this is my first Marantz. I know the early Sansui AU series had an issue with noise transistors but I'm struggling to find articles on Marantz 1060 rebuilds. I'd rather not have to order a rebuild kit from the US as it would double the cost of my amp! Happy to source locally RS, Element 14 so if anyone has a rebuild parts list from these suppliers, that would be awesome.
      A couple of photos - fairly clean inside and have seen a lot worse! It's a lovely looking amp and from what I hear from 1 speaker, sounds warm but punchy.
      A big ask for my first post and grateful for any tips please.
