Marantz PM8005 2-Channel Integrated Amplifier
An outstanding two channel amplifier is hard to come by in the age of home theater-centric AVRs. If you’ve been looking high and low for a first-rate two channel stereo integrated amp without the bells and whistles of an AVR, the Marantz PM8004 is just what the audio doctor ordered. Instead of using its power for features you don’t need, the PM8004 delivers that wattage directly to your speakers and that means refined, superior sound.
With 70 watts of high current power across the full audio bandwidth from each of its two component amplifiers, it will bring your Aperion speakers to life in even a large room. Behind those 70 watts is a massive toroidal transformer that is the foundation for the PM8004’s power supply. Its circular shape and double shielding helps control stray magnetic fields that can adversely affect sound quality. Power supply segments are also located on the same heat sinks as output transistors to minimize signal path lengths. The result is that the PM8004 responds instantly and crisply to dynamic changes in your music, providing detail and accuracy that lesser amplifiers would simply blur.
Improving on Marantz’s already notable reputation for superior circuitry, HDAM® SA3, the most recent addition to the Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module series, ensures that the signal retains the highest possible level of fidelity.
Additionally you’ll get tri-tone equalization controls, a Marantz Hallmark, that allow you to adjust midrange levels as well as bass and treble through accessible controls on the front panel. The PM8004’s chassis itself includes a triple-layer bottom plate to insure long-term alignment and vibration control.
Should you choose to integrate the PM8004 into a home theater set up, switching between an integrated stereo amp and a power amp controlled by a pre-amp is a snap with the Power Amp Direct switch conveniently located on the front panel. If you want minimal processing then just use the Source Direct switch to bypass balance and tone control circuits and let the true nuances of your source material shine through.
Elegant looks, exceptional sound quality for the discriminating listener and ease of use, the Marantz PM8004 has it all in spades.
