Marantz PM6005 - Stereo Amplifier
The Marantz PM6005 is the eagerly awaited successor to the multi-award winning PM6004. The PM6005 retains all the key elements that made the PM6004 such a success including the pre-amp and power-amp sections with fully discrete components, there’s not a single IC in sight of the signal path - because specially selected single components not only outperform ICs in quality, they also make it possible to refine the sound in much more detail, resulting in better clarity and transparency.
The high quality, lower impedance shielded Toroidal transformer and customized main capacitors are also still present. The PM6005 provides five audio inputs including phono for vinyl fans. Two pairs of gold-plated speaker connections give you the option of running two pairs of speakers with separate A/B switching or you can bi-wire your main speakers, or convenience a remote handset is provided.
Where the Marantz PM6005 differs from its predecessor is that it now includes optical and coaxial digital audio inputs so that you can connect other sources like your TV, network streamers and other devices that require digital audio connections. The PM6005 uses the 24bit/192kHz high current CS4398 DAC which is already well proven in many Premium Range products. The complete digital section is fully shielded by an extra metal housing to ensure that the digital stage has no effect on the analogue signal. In short, the new Marantz PM6005 is your proven and excellent bridge to the future.
