They are a well known retailer in Santa Monica, CA. I grew up close to their B&M. Legit.

I purchased a manufacturer refurbished MARANTZ SR6012 9.2 Ch A/V Receiver from a authorized dealers (safeandsoundhq.com) that they had listed on ebay for $920 last week. I used a now expired ebay 15% off ($100) code plus 5% cash back from my Chase card for paying with Paypal for a total of $780 shipped. It arrived today and it looks and smells like new. They still have one listed for $940.

This unit is for those who want a compact form.. It can only support 7 channels.. Either as 7.1 or 5.1.2. It does not have preouts so you cannot use it with external amplifier.. It is a great little unit for a living room where you want decent sound but don't want something with a huge form factor like the 6012 or the 8012..

I would say, if the form is not a concern, look for the 6012 or an 8012 so you have the option to connect to external amplifiers (and they also have better built in amplifiers than the 1608)..

If you have sensitive speakers and smallish room, the 1608 will fit the bill just fine..

I have the 1607 in my living room and it looks so elegant in the tv stand and works well for its purpose.. I use the denon 6200 and separates in the dedicated room..

It does have a Zone 2 and Front Pre Outs, not terrible for the form factor.
