Why do you think it is just about over for Marantz? They still have quite a presence at places like Best Buy, for example (Mostly video receiver).
Marantz likely becomes a consumer brand, and sells at Best Buy, but I think products like the Ruby KI and SA10 are the last of a long line of really top products for Marantz.
No, I got it at Music Direct. Best Buy has a "Magnolia" division which carries some high-end audio, and I did ask a salesman I know there about the SA10, but he never answered my email. My point was that Marantz's presence there seems pretty stable, so I think the company should be too. It is true that this doesn't guarantee that they will continue to innovate in audio. But I think there is a new SA12 available now in Japan, perhaps eventually in the U.S., which is something like the Ruby. Still, I agree that the Ruby might be a good bet now....last I looked there were good deals on them at Music Direct. I probably should have gotten one of those instead of the SA10, since I don't need balanced outputs.
