"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 4.7 out of 5áby 107 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent value amplifier I have always previously bought second hand vintage Marantz amps, thinking they would be a better match for my Technics turntable. I think that this amp offers a small improvement on my turntable but the improvement for my cd player and pc sound connected to the amp's dac via optical cable is massive. It is the equivalent of HDTV compared to SDTV. My beloved vinyl is currently in the shadows a bit as I go back and listen to my CD collection and downloads/youtube. Love this amp. Very quickly delivered by the excellent Richer Sounds. Thanks. 24 October 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent sound quality and elegant Clear sound quality, easy to install & get going. Elegant design 22 October 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Fantastic sound, looks great too I purchased this last week to replace a sound bar (Yamaha YSP2500). For music the 2500 just did not cut it. I paired it with Zensor 1s and WOW, great sound. I added a Chrome-cast Audio to the digital input, and Tidal HIFI is amazing. Only small issue was at first I though the sound was terrible and duly rang RS for a return. Whilst disconnecting it I realised I had wired the speakers wrong (schoolboy error) however to be fair, the terminal layout is a little misleading (red,black,black,red - should be red black red back). Anyway, after wiring it correctly it suddenly sprang to life. 21 October 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Great starter for getting into Hi Fi sound Bought to replace my Marantz PM66SE. Partly for nostalgic reasons but also to ensure I could still listen to decent quality music in my gym. Paired with a CD 67 SE and Mission floor standers. The sound is brighter than the PM 66SE. That may be because the PM6005 is digging out more detail, or it may be that I still need to run it in. Good value if you still listen to vinyl occasionally. The quality with vinyl is actually better than I recall but much depends on the quality of the original recording. Grace Jones' Night Clubbing album is one of the best produced records ever. My old Deep Purple albums seem fuzzy by comparison. No doubt there are better amps, but for the price the PM6005 is hard to fault. Richer Sounds are fantastic value as ever. Been using them since the 1990s and wouldn't go anywhere else. 15 October 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Marantz PM6005 The Marantz PM6005 is an excellent product it delivers on sound quality and available connections, It does everything I want from an amplifier. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that I found connecting the speakers to terminal A very awkward as the connections to terminal B which are directly above get in the way. 14 October 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby A solid 2 channel amp I was after a no fuss 2 channel amp to power some B&W 601 s2's. I have always used Marantz for professional audio recording at work so I felt they were the best bet for the budget. The amp feels solid and the dials are well placed and have a positive feel on turning. The bass, treble and balance help tune in a personal preference without giving too much freedom to go crazy. A very clean and warm sounding amp that once plugged into a chromecast audio is brought up to speed with bluetooth functionality via the optical or phono cable. I don't know what more anyone could expect for the price point. There is even the option to biwire your speakers if you wish, however I've been told there are very minor if any discernable gains. I'm using van damme blue studio cable with this amp. 13 October 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent quality amplifier with detailed sound Great quality and detailed sound with previously purchased Marantz Cd Player and good phono input for my turntable.Excellent Service and product knowledge displayed by Cardiff store.Resrved item by phone as 45 mile drive to collect ,item was waiting and paperwork complete as soon as I arrived at store ,and was particularly impressed by member of staff who informed me that if any problems with set up or equipment do not hesitate to contact them,put some other high street retailers to shame,well done Cardiff Richer Sounds 07 October 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Marantz PM6005 The reviews of this amp are stunning. I needed to replace a Sony TAF940 after 15 years of constant use. I bought the amp by phone without a demo and when delivered and set up found it did not agree with my 35 year old ROGERS speakers .The amp through headphones was superb but not so good with my vintage speakers The staff at Cardiff came to my rescue and allowed me to change ( with a small charge for making my original purchase into an open box sale line ) for an amp with a softer sound. The new amp is fine for use with vintage speakers. The PM6005 and I am sure the new pm6006 are very fine amps and I am sorry I could not use it with my antiques. The Staff at Cardiff were very helpful and saved the day for me. 19 September 2016
