Hear the Marantz Difference: Proprietary HDAM Technology, Fully Discrete Output Stages
HDAM technology features precision discrete components that provide wide dynamic range with low distortion, outperforming conventional op-amp integrated circuit chips. HDAM modules are used in the digital audio converter stages as well as the critical analog audio stage. Equipped with multiple high-current wide-range power transistors, PM6005 features the ability to handle low-impedance speakers and is rated at 45 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 60 watts per channel into 4 ohms. The output stages feature current feedback (originated by Marantz) instead of voltage feedback for the lowest distortion and highest stability.
Overbuilt Power Supply, Reference-Class DAC
Featuring a high-current, high-capacity shielded toroidal power transformer, the power supply section also employs high-current, high-speed Shottky Barrier Diodes along with high-current storage capacitors that together provide wide dynamic range along with low-impedance drive capability. In addition, with the reference-class CS4398 24-bit/192kHz DAC, PM6005 also employs proprietary HDAM discrete modules in the critical I/V conversion stage. The digital audio section is housed in a shielded compartment to prevent interference with the analog audio circuit blocks.
Listen In Private Via the Headphone Amplifier
For superb sound quality with the widest range of headphones, PM6005 features a fully discrete headphone amplifier that handles just about any headphone, regardless of impedance or sensitivity. The high-quality gold-plated ¼" headphone jack is compatible with audiophile and studio headphones and adapters.
Source Direct Mode, Gold-Plated Connectors, and A/B Speaker Select
Source Direct bypasses unneeded circuit stages (such as the tone controls) for the most direct audio path from input to output. The audio inputs and outputs, along with the speaker terminals and the coaxial digital input, are gold-plated for long life and optimum signal transfer integrity. PM6005 can also drive two pairs of speakers or be connected to one pair of bi-wiring compatible speakers, with one set of terminals for the low-range drivers and the other set connected to the high range drivers.
Optical and Coaxial Digital Audio Inputs, Remote Control, Remote Control In/Out Terminals
Optical and coaxial digital audio inputs are provided for compatibility with the widest range of digital audio sources. Featuring an easy-to-use ergonomic design, the elegant remote control can also be used to control the matching Marantz CD6005 CD player as well as a network player. Remote input and output terminals let you connect the PM6005 to other Marantz components, such as the matching CD6005 CD player, allowing you to place PM6005 out of sight (such as in a cabinet) yet still enjoy full remote control capabilities. An IR (infrared) flasher port lets you connect PM6005 to an external system remote controller.
