Availability date: 01/01/2016
New to the Marantz collection, this excellent entry-level integrated amplifier breaks all the rules. Thats because its the first in its class to offer current feedback architecture a feature that normally is reserved for the more expensive models.
This technology provides very fast and accurate signal handling, which results in perfectly balanced stereo sound reproduction as well as a very open and precise sound stage.
Its also been recently enhanced with performanceoptimising discrete audio circuitry and fine-tuning components. In addition, this years model looks a little more stylish than last years, thanks to new elegant knob design. On top of that, it comes with a new remote and a new low-power stand-by and auto stand-by mode.
But back to being an amp: the PM5005 offers 40W per channel into 8 ohm or 55W into 4 ohm, and includes a metal chassis and a front metal panel to ensure a very rigid and solid base.
It also has a Phono MM equaliser, as well as a Source Direct functionality to ensure shortest signal paths. Without doubt, the PM5005 has raised the performance bar in the so-called entry level area. Great sound. Amazing versatility.
