The Marantz PM-15s2B Unites Timeless Design and Remarkable Sound Quality
The new Marantz PM-15 Limited for 2012 has been engineered as an heirloom amplifier. Drop dead gorgeous, both inside and out, the PM-15 Limited will be the heart and soul of any music lover’s main audio system for decades to come. This timeless component was painstakingly designed, as each and every internal component was auditioned to ensure this was a musical instrument in its own right. Let’s talk technical: Extremely oversized and very expensive toroidal transformers were used in combination with the newest Marantz HDAM analog output stages to deliver enough current delivery to drive even the most difficult to drive loudspeakers.
Marantz engineers paid special attention to protecting the delicate signal paths, maximizing shielding and protecting the circuits from the ravages of vibration. External noise is minimized and distortion is eliminated allowing more micro detail to come to the fore. Analog lovers will notice the special attention paid to the phono preamplifier circuit, besting all but the most serious outboard phonostages. In short, the PM-15 Limited is simply a work of art, one that will give its owner a lifetime of musical pleasure.
While the PM-15S2 Limited features luxurious, black anodized aluminum casework, the beauty of this extraordinary new component runs more than skin deep. Key design attributes, some first explored in the award winning MA-9S2 monoblock amplifier, lift the sonic integrity of the 15 to a level that belies its approachable price. HDAM-SA3 modules offer high slew rate and low noise operation and contribute to the highly resolved sonic character of the component.
Featuring a custom-wound torroidal power transformer anchors a high current, the PM-15S2 Limited's regulated power supply has been newly tuned for quick response. Twin 20,000 microfarad filter capacitors are custom made for Marantz and provide huge current reserves for enhanced bass control. A current feedback power amplifier delivers 90 watts per channel into 8 ohms and features a DC servo for superior low frequency response.
Vinyl enthusiasts will appreciate the PM-15S2 Limited's fast, sonically neutral qualities of the constant current feedback moving magnet phono stage, as well as the vivid imaging afforded by a digitally controlled analog volume stage that boasts channel to channel accuracy within .5 dB. HDAM-SA2 modules are deployed in a buffer configuration at the CD input for enhanced linearity. A Bi-Mode setting makes it possible to operate two PM-15S2 as mono-integrated amplifiers for total left-right channel isolation while a power amp direct input allows complete integration with a home theater processor at the touch of a button.Features:
