Integrated Amps & Stereo Receivers

Marantz PM-KI Pearl Lite Stereo Integrated Amplifier


Marantz announced the PM-KI Pearl Lite integrated amplifier, bringing the limited edition KI Pearl range's musical philosophy and beautiful build to a wider audience at a lower price point.

Adopting the same musical philosophy as the limited edition KI Pearl system, the Lites aim to reproduce the original recordings as musicians and recording engineers intended, and the sonic results include a beautifully wide '3D' soundstage.

Using a new cabinet construction, the Pearl Lite stereo amplifier delivers 70 watts per channel, and incorporates a full discreet current feedback amplifier circuit using the latest HDAM-SA3 technology. Further standout design touches include tri-tone control — Marantz has reintroduced this feature with the specific intention of helping improve the sound of some compressed digital music files — though, of course, the maker retains its 'source direct' audiophile-pleasing option. And a welcome inclusion for vinyl fans, borrowed directly from its PM-KI Pearl big brother, is an exceptional moving magnet phono stage.

The PM-KI Pearl Lite integrated amplifier is available in black and silver/gold from September 2010.
