Marantz PM8005 Integrated Stereo Amplifier

Marantz PM8005 Integrated Stereo Amplifier

Marantz today introduced the PM8005 integrated stereo amplifier, which adds optimized power handling characteristics and a redesign of the large double-shielded Toroidal transformer’s circuitry for improved bandwidth power, over the PM8004 integrated amplifier. The PM8005 fully discrete current-feedback integrated amplifier is perfect for audiophiles wanting both excellent music quality and flexible operation. It offers a powerful 2 x 70W into 8 ohms, while the symmetrical circuits ensure perfect image balancing. To guarantee a totally unique audio experience, Marantz designers have shaped and optimized the power handling characteristics and redesigned the large double-shielded Toroidal transformer’s circuitry to optimize bandwidth power. The result is a current-feedback amplifier with a massive energy reserve to drive even the most demanding of speakers with ease.

The versatile pre-amp section features 6 line level inputs including a phono (MM) input, and the PM8005 also includes pre-amp outputs along with a power amp direct input, which lets you use the unit as a standalone power amplifier for integration into a multi-channel home theater system. For precise sound tailoring, the PM8005 features our triple tone control system, with separate controls for the bass, midrange and treble segments.

To further insure the best sound quality, the PM8005 features current feedback topology and Marantz exclusive hyper-dynamic amplifier modules (HDAMs) for detailed audio reproduction, as well as a triple-layer bottom plate to help eliminate vibration. The PM8005 also provides source-direct mode for the purest audio signal and moving magnet Phono input.
