Premium audiophile design at an affordable price—that's what we all want, right? The Marantz PM5005 stereo integrated amplifier delivers, featuring all-analogue circuitry from input to output, and delivering a wide frequency response, high dynamic range, and true low impedance drive capability. For maximum compatibility, it's also rated to handle both 8 ohms and 4 ohms speakers.
Featuring current feedback power amplifier circuitry, the power amplifier section uses pure discrete analogue circuitry along with multiple high current discrete power output devices (mounted on a generously-sized aluminum heat sink) that easily handle lower impedance loads and deliver high instantaneous peak current capability (perfect for speakers that lack a flat impedance curve). In fact, the current capacity for each amplifier channel is a substantial 16 amps!
Rated at 40 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 55 watts per channel into 4 ohms, the PM5005 features A and B speaker outputs that can be used with two sets of stereo speakers or for bi-wiring a pair of stereo speakers. The 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.
The PM5005 also has 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 the PM5005 and a Marantz Network Audio Player tucked away in a cabinet and hidden from view, and control all 3 units with a single remote.
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.
Wide Range of Connectivity Options
Veteran audiophiles and new generation music lovers both know that the sonic allure of vinyl records often can't be matched by digital audio sources, and the PM5005 includes multiple analog inputs including a MM (moving magnet) phono input. There are also dual recording inputs and outputs, along with a headphone amplifier jack on the front panel. The high quality speaker binding posts can accept multiple speaker cable termination types. The audio input and output jacks are all gold plated for maximum signal integrity.
To ensure the shortest signal path and the highest fidelity, the PM5005 features our Source Direct function, which bypasses the tone control and loudness control circuitry.
