New Marantz Reference Series, PM-KI Ruby and PM-10 integrated amplifiers

Greetings to all music lovers out there, anyone listened both integrated amplifier from the new Marantz Reference Series?

What about the differences between PM-Ki Ruby and PM-10?

PM-Ki Ruby is "tuned" by Ken Ishiwata and the phono stage is builded with JFET transistors.

(I didn't found the info if the phono stage on the PM-10 is builded with JFETs or not.. just the KI-Ruby...)

PM-10 is much more powerful.

Anyone had the opportunity to listen both gears?

Share your thoughts about the two designs, and sound experience, especially the phono section...

Thanks to all, best regards.

Wondering if the the KI-Ruby series can be considered a more sophisticated design in compare with the PM-10?

Amplifier

If you are interested in the best sound possible, IMO the Musical Fidelity M6si sounds better than either of the amps you mentioned, and has enough power for 99% of the speakers in existence. It also incorporates a superb phono stage.

For the finest CD/SACD playback I have ever experienced, the Marantz SA-10 Reference player is what you want. It is the first player I have ever had in my system that is truly "perfect sound"; the sound is simply flawless.
