"A hugely talented amplifier and a real comeback for Marantz." 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 5 out of 5by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5by A lively amplifier This is a nice amp when using the analogue inputs. The internal DAC seems to lack some detail. Have also found the headphone socket to lack some detail. However when using with a good pair of speakers it sounds great, lots of details and punchy bass. I would recommend this to anyone who needs to drive speakers only. 15 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5by this product supplies quality in line with independant reviews Best price as checked regularly by me in advance of purchase. Delivery was given 3 to 5 days free of charge amplifier arrived next day. Can't grumble with the service or the quality would recommend to anyone 07 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5by A fine all rounder Bought this recently to replace my ageing Marantz PM6010. It is a great improvement and has given a new lease of life to my Mordaunt Short speakers. The sound is detailed, dynamic and balanced. and it works very well with my new Marantz CD6005 CD player. Phono and Tuner outputs also work very well. I am not yet sure that the "source direct" button adds anything to the party but will reserve judgment on this for the time being. All in all I am delighted with the amplifier which represents excellent value for money. 31 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5by Quality build and performance The unit provides a balance of power and refinement. It is very smooth to operate and a very attractive feature for me was the i-pod connection facility. I have a Marantz CD unit and so I thought a matching amp would be appropriate. Product compatibility and its benefits are now becoming increasingly relevant to my sound system strategy - it takes a long time for me to assimilate the obvious!!!! 03 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5by great sound Very well made amp, and nice to look at. Lots of features including a very good phono stage, you would have to spend a lot more if it didn't have a phono stage such as the cambridge amps. Goes well with the CD player and Tannoy speakers V4..great value package too @ 530 for the units and 279 for the speakers. If I was being picky, I wish the volume knob had a indicator light on it to show you where it was and not convinced the two pin mains cable is safe without an earth, but I am sure it is. Otherwise it sounds very good at that price. I auditioned a 1000 amp supposed to be an award winner, and though the detail was great. the reference sound was not for me, you could not adjust the bass/treble etc BUT you can on the marantz which enhances the sound at lower volumes. Direct sound only is tinny I am afraid. 02 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5by Superb Amp! Fantastic piece of kit. Cracking sound & optical link works great from TV to amplifier. 08 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5by A welcomed Christmas present Does exactly what was hoped for. Linked to a recently bought turntable. 01 January 2014
