"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 much more expensive amplifiers, the PM6005 benefits from separate pre and power amp sections, constructed from discrete components rather than the more usual ICs (Integrated Circuits). This gives the PM6005 an uncommon clarity and level of detail. As before, the PM6005 benefits from an impressive Toroidal power supply. Along with the large capacitors, this helps keep a tight control on speakers and gives music a generous sense of scale; far larger in fact, than you might expect from an amplifier rated at 45 watts.

NOW WITH 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 to the amp, a whole new level of flexibility is opened up. With a choice of coaxial and optical inputs you can connect up many digital sources such as CD, DVD, Blu-ray players, TVs and even games consoles. By using the digital connection you're likely to gain a much better sound quality, due to the Marantz's superior processing power. As you'd expect from Marantz, the digital part of the amplifier is fully shielded by an extra metal housing, ensuring no electrical interference with the other parts of the amplifier.

FULLY FEATURED

In terms of 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 for personal listening. 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 50 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby Gets the job done, easy set up I was in the market for a solid amp in this price range for use with my turntable and digital music saved on my laptop. Sleek and easy to use, I am very happy with my choice. 22 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5áby Great value Nicely built and finished, with a good range of features, such as remote control, auto shut down into standby mode after 30 minutes of no signal and an inbuilt D:AC. Given all these factors and a quality 45 wpc, it's hard to imagine what more anyone might reasonably demand for less than ú300. 18 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent amplifier Really pleased with the MP6005 amplifier. Good range with excellent bass, great sound even through my 40 year old speakers, I would add a very slight criticism, that the volume increments are rather large when using the remote, 15 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Fantastic sound, great look. The best integrated amp I've purchased, the sound quality is excellent regardless of volume and it powers my floorstanders beautifully. The unit also looks extremely well made with a solid chassis and high-quality controls. It has become the star of my living room. 07 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby What is says on the tin Needed to replace my 20yr old Pioneer A400 amp that had served me well. The PM6005 has replaced it nicely, driving Mirage Floorstanders. Clear detailed sound, base nice and tight. Money well spent. 04 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Effortless, flawless performance As part of my system upgrade, I wanted an amp that could deliver the crucial link between my turntable (AR with Ortofon Red) and speakers (Klipsch RF52 ii). In the week since purchasing the amp, the commonest scenario in my house has been my other half and me staring at each other with open mouths. The amp delivers a brilliantly controlled soundstage, with instrumentation fully represented without being overbearing and digs out previously-unheard detail from albums I thought I knew backwards. Connectivity is excellent - I can now attach my blu ray player via a dedicated coaxial input and my TV via the on-board optical input, which has improved the sound output of both components enormously. The built in DAC is nothing short of superb. I've chosen to ignore the on-board phono stage and adhere to my external phono box, but I'm sure that the on-board phono performance is as admirable and accomplished as the rest of the amp's repertoire. A true powerhouse - don't hesitate to grab one. 26 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5áby great bit of kit great amp for the cost, shame it does not have a usb port on it for ipods etc but then the cd player 6005 does so when matched up all is good. matching speakers to the amp would be good to get the best from it. 26 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby good looking and great sound this amplifier has a great sound with lots of depth good definition, excellent value. 20 May 2015
