Engineered to Mirror Vintage Analog Gear: Fully Discrete Marantz Model 30 Integrated Amplifier Features High-End Phono Preamplifier, HDAM Circuitry, Luxurious Sound, More
Meticulously tuned by the Marantz Sound Master and equipped with custom-curated HDAM-SA3 circuitry, the fully discrete and all-analog Model 30 integrated amplifier specializes in music playback marked by ravishing purity, memorable emotionalism, vibrant clarity, desirable warmth, and exquisite detail. Engineered to replicate the sense and feel of a vintage analog amplifier, and able to accommodate both analog and digital sources with profound depth, Model 30 uses separate power supplies for the amplifier and preamplifier sections as well as a large toroidal transformer dedicated to the preamp to keep interference to an absolute minimum. From its hundreds of carefully curated individual parts and porthole-style OLED display, to its symmetrical layout and brass-machined CD and phono inputs, the gorgeous Model 30 offers a master class in the importance, immersion, and experience of high-fidelity audio.
Offering a conservatively rated 100Wpc output into eight ohms (and a massive 200Wpc into four ohms) and an ideal companion to the complementary Marantz SACD 30n steaming SACD/CD player, the 32.3-pound Model 30 boasts an amplifier design inherited from Marantz's flagship models. Equally impressive, the fully discrete current-feedback preamplifier section arrives prepared to excel with high-resolution sources. As well as vinyl. Indeed, the onboard MM/MC Premium Phono EQ – optimized with two-stage amplification that combines HDAMs with JFETs in the input stage and further simplified by the lack of any coupling capacitors – demands the attention of any discerning listener. An input impedance selector with three different settings further increases versatility.
Ditto the linear electric volume control, a high-linearity creation that helps achieve stellar channel separation, large dynamics, and low-distortion operation. With Model 30, you'll always get the volume exactly where you want it. A dedicated headphone output compatible with low-impedance ‘phones, elegant remote control (that also works with SACD 30n), two line-level inputs, high-end copper speaker terminals, a pair of recorder input/output jacks, and the ability to employ Model 30 as a standalone stereo power amplifier adds to the value Model 30 brings to any music lover.
Housed in a thick, heavy, triple-layer, non-magnetic aluminum chassis with a rigid steel top cover, the 10.1 x 20 x 20.6-inch (HWD) Model 30 extends a tradition of spectacular sonics and passionate build quality that began nearly 70 years ago. It's a heritage you'll doubtlessly want to embrace. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
