This fully discrete current feedback integrated amplifier is perfect for audiophiles wanting both excellent music quality and flexible operation.
It offers a powerful 2x 70W into 8 ohm, while the symmetrical circuits ensure perfect image balancing. To guarantee a totally unique audio experience, Marantz designers have shaped and optimised the power handling characteristics and redesigned the large double shielded Toroidal transformer’s circuitry to optimise bandwidth power. The result is a current feedback amplifier with a massive energy reserve to drive even the most demanding of speakers with absolute ease. To further guarantee best sound quality, the PM8005 has current feedback HDAMs, as well a triple-layer bottom plate to help eliminate vibration. The PM8005 also provides source-direct mode for the purest audio signal and Phono MM to enjoy your vinyls. It’s heaven.

History It all started in 1948 when Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) introduced the first mono long-playing (LP) records and sparked the public’s interest in quality music reproduction. One of those affected was music lover, freelance graphic artist and amateur musician: Saul Bernard Marantz, a native New Yorker born in 1911. Unhappy with equipment available at the time, Saul spent many hours in his basement constructing amplifiers to play his cherished LP collection. As today's products offer more functionality than ever and consumers demand an ever greater variety of designs, a key factor in satisfying consumer needs is the dealer. That's why Marantz carefully selects its dealers to ensure that the quality of the service they provide matches the quality of the products Marantz produces.
