Marantz raises prices – but discounts remain online

Marantz BD8002

Marantz is the latest manufacturer to announce price increases, although some products can still be found at a discount online.

The Award-winning PM6002 amplifier rises from £270 to £319.90, and there's an identical rise on the £270 Award-winning Marantz CD6002 CD player.

However, Sevenoaks Sound and Vision is offering the CD6002 for £219 and the PM6002 for £209. And both models can be bought at Richer Sounds for £214.95, or £229 from Peter Tyson.

Price increases on other models are expected shortly. Meanwhile, Marantz has confirmed the price of its new BD8002 Blu-ray player (above) at £1599.90, although it's available for £1399 from Peter Tyson online.

We'll be testing the Marantz BD8002 in the Blu-ray supplement that's free with our April issue, on sale from March 11th.
