Marantz PM5005 Integrated Amplifier
Innovative Current Feedback Architecture In a Very Affordable Component: Powerful-Sounding Marantz PM5005 Integrated Amplifier Is Entry-Level High-End Audio at Its Best
All-Analog Circuitry From Input to Output, Discrete Analog Circuitry In Power Amp Section, Source Direct, and MM Phonostage Make Marantz PM5005 Integrated Amp a Giant-Killer
The first entry-level integrated to possess the current feedback architecture found in the iconic company's more expensive designs, the Marantz PM5005 integrated amplifier delivers incredibly balanced sonics, impressive dynamics, wide-open soundstages that drastically increase your involvement with music. The overachieving 40Wpc component also features Source Direct, stylish knobs, and an enhanced remote. Multiple high-current discrete power output devices grace the power amplifier section, ensuring high instantaneous peak current and audiophile-grade music playback. An optimized MM phonostage? It's here too. Utterly amazing for the price, PM5005 is affordable high-end audio at its best. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
Current Feedback Discrete Power Amplifier and Discrete Volume Amplifier Circuitry
PM5005 features a power amplifier section based on current feedback technology. High-current discrete power output devices mounted on a generously sized aluminum heat sink combine to provide high instantaneous peak current capability, and are easily able to handle dynamic bursts into lower-impedance 4-ohm speaker loads (the current capacity for each amplifier channel is a substantial 16 amps). The volume amplifier circuit features fully discrete circuitry (no op amp chips in the signal path) for the widest bandwidth, lowest distortion, and highest dynamic range.
Ample Power, Source Direct Mode, Deluxe Remote Control
Rated at 40 watts per channel into eight ohms and 55 watts per channel into four ohms, PM5005 features A and B speaker outputs for two sets of stereo speakers or for bi-wiring with compatible stereo speakers. Ensuring the shortest signal path and highest fidelity, PM5005 has Source Direct, which bypasses the tone control and loudness control circuitry. A deluxe remote control provides discrete source input buttons, and includes additional buttons for direct control of the matching Marantz CD5005 player and Marantz Network Audio Players.
Excellent Connectivity Covers Analog and Digital Bases
Covering today's digital and analog needs, PM5005 includes multiple analog inputs, including a MM phono input. They abet dual recording inputs and outputs, along with a headphone amplifier jack on the front panel. High-grade speaker connectors can accept multiple speaker cable termination types. Gold-plated audio input and output jacks guarantee maximum signal integrity.
Hard-Wire PM5005 to Other Marantz Components
PM5005 boasts a remote control input and output jacks that let you hard-wire the amplifier directly to a Marantz CD player, which in turn can be hard-wired to a Marantz Network Audio Player. For example, you can place a Marantz CD player on an open shelf for easy access, and place PM5005 and a Marantz Network Audio Player tucked away in a cabinet and hidden from view, then control all 3 units with a single remote, eliminating component clutter.
