Marantz PM 5005 and Dali might sound a bit bright together if you like that kinda sound , my prefferd amp with Dali would be a Denon PMA720AE or Yamaha AS501/701 to balance out Dalis slight brightness and forward nature.

Marantz is more balanced than Cambridge Audio, Marantz will be superior to the CA models you mentioned.
Go with a proper stereo amp not the M series if possible, if SQ is of highest importance then the Marantz PM series will be of better value than the 'Melody series.

acoustic portrait is a local manufacturer of amps out of bangalore. not much in terms of features but excellent in terms of sound quality. ahead of the ones you've mentioned. they have a 75w model integrated for rs36k

Hi Das,

The key is to audition and decide..also read online feedback and see a couple of videos..

If budget is a constraint, look at For Sale by owner or Hi Fi ads...

All the best!

Marantz is a warm sounding amplifier and is ideal for Dali
