More than 65 Years of Audiophile Heritage
Founded in 1953, Marantz has a long and rich history of designing audiophile components embraced by music lovers and critical listeners around the world. Because Music Matters so much in our lives, the Melody X carries on the long Marantz tradition of delivering a superlative music listening experience.
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.
