"A fantastic budget stereo amp. Delivers superb sound quality for your analogue and digital music."What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine. Group test winner and 5-Star review, tested at £300.

Serious sound quality

Just like its predecessor, the PM6004, the Marantz PM6005 puts sound quality first. Usually the preserve of more expensive amplifiers, the PM6005 benefits from separate pre and power amp sections, constructed from discrete components rather than the more usual integrated circuits. This gives the PM6005 an uncommon clarity and level of detail. Its toroidal power supply and large capacitors keep a tight control on speakers and gives music a generous sense of scale; far larger than you might expect from a 45W amplifier.

Digital inputs
New to the PM6005 is a built-in DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor). By fitting a high quality Cirrus Logic 24 bit/192 kHz DAC, a whole new level of flexibility is possilble. With a choice of coaxial and optical inputs you can connect digital sources such as CD, DVD, Blu-ray players, TVs and even games consoles, and you're likely to improve their sound quality, thanks to the Marantz's superior processing power. The digital part of the amplifier is also fully shielded, ensuring no electrical interference with the other parts of the amplifier.

Fully featured
Regarding analogue inputs, the PM6005 is comprehensively equipped. An MM (Moving Magnet) phono stage is built-in for use with a turntable. There are also four line level inputs and a recording outlet. Two sets of speaker outputs are included, as is a headphone socket. Bass and treble controls are standard and can be bypassed by the Source Direct control for slightly improved sound quality.

With inputs for analogue and digital, the Marantz PM6005 is a centre of excellence for your entire system.

Rated 4.8 out of 5áby 87 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby great sound what a great buy i would have paid full price but thanks to richer sounds got it with ú60 off connected it to my project deck and mission speakers and was very pleased with the results dont think ill use all the knobs buttons and inputs just wanted a plain simple amp to boost the vinyl GREAT 23 June 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Superb addition to any set up Had this amp for some time now & without a doubt can thoroughly sing its praises .Agree with many of the other reviewers on the build & sheer sound quality of this unit especially in this price range Have paired it up with a pair of Tannoy Mercury iv's floor standing speakers & the Marantz 6005 cd player to produce an excellent sounding budget system all from RS. I have been buying & listening to Hi Fi since way back in the sixties & the obvious advances in technology are really apparent when listening to gear such as this . So go on if your looking for a quality amp look no further , as Del Boy would say you know it makes sense!!!! 17 June 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Good professional sounding amp. Perfect for a medium or larger type room. The look and feel of the PM6005 is on a par with much more expensive amplifiers out there. The sound quality and tone really brings the music to life. 03 June 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Good old Richer Sounds Bromley branch !! The other reviews say it all about the Marantz CD 6005 .. I would like to point out that the owners manual states that only iphones are compatible when in fact ipad and ipad mini work perfectly in the front Usb socket .. Also rather than just play stored music from you device you can stream from it as well ... I use the tune in radio app on my ipad mini. Find stations that stream at the higher bit rates and you will be amazed. Toggle on the hand set between direct mode to remote mode and the station and track info is also displayed on the cd6005... Just a quick thanks to Tim at Bromley branch tonight for digging out the last pair of Dynaudio DM 2/7s at a stupid price !! I am extremely happy.. Thanks !! 25 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Accurate, clean and with all the power I need. Auditioned a couple of amps and this was the clear winner. Lovely defined sound. Everything I like when listening to music. 25 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Astonishing Amplifier...Cannot Believe The Price! I bought this amp to replace a Cambridge Audio Topaz that was far too finicky (overloaded every 5 minutes for no apparent reason). Although the Marantz doesn't have the same eye-catching looks of the Cambridge Audio range, the connections (gold plated and better laid-out) and more importantly, the sound just is head and shoulders above it. Basslines are crisp and full, the vocals just come to life (listen to Revolver by The Beatles...Eleanor Rigby sounded like it was being sung live from the corner of my living room). I paired this amp with a pair of Q Acoustics 2020i standmount speakers, and sonically I've been truly blown away by my new set-up...and considering the low cost of both pieces I am indeed a happy camper. 16 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Nice amp Replaced a surround sound amp that was not fit for purpose, nice sounding amp, the optical in and phono stage make it perfect for me so I can listen to vinyl and hook the telly up for films 10 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Replacement for an old amp I bought this to replace my old Marantz PM350 amp I bought as a student in 1980. The sound quality is excellent producing a rich deep sound. I'm very happy with my purchase. Hopefully, it will last as long as the old one. 17 April 2016
