”The focus is completely on the music, and not the 'hi-fi-ness', which can only be a good thing.” ’Hi-Fi News’ – Outstanding Product. Tested with matching SACD30N.

Master-tuned for reference sound quality

Painstakingly developed over three years, the Model 30 took hundreds of hours of Marantz’s finest technicians to produce this labour of love. The Model 30 is a fully discrete design, meaning it uses dozens of carefully selected components and separate circuits for the pre, power, phono and headphone sections – rather than combining them together. With Marantz’s own HDAM modules fitted, the sound is tuned with absolute precision.

Sonic precision – with HDAM
This premium Marantz amp uses Marantz's own HDAM-SA3 (Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Module) circuits. These bespoke op-amps use surface-mount metal-film resistors for greater temperature stability. The upshot is a cleaner, less distorted sound that’s delivered with perfect clarity.

The power to move you
The Model 30 isn’t just about exquisite detail and realism. Featuring a lightning-fast SMPS transformer, it delivers an effortless 100 watts per channel (200 watts per channel to a 4 ohm speaker load). Combined with the high spec output capacitors, this gives the Model 30 the sort of dynamic range, depth and sheer power that you’d more usually associate with a separate pre/power amp combo.

Top quality phono preamp – Musical Premier Phono EQ
If you’ve got a turntable, you’re in for a treat with the Model 30’s phono preamp. Designed to get the very best from your vinyl, this phono preamp uses the shortest, simplest signal paths for the cleanest sound. The Marantz Premium Musical Phono EQ uses two-stage amplification for lower distortion. Marantz’s HDAM op-amps also play a part in producing more accurate equalisation for cleaner, more open sound. Unlike lower grade phono preamps, it’s also adjustable to suit your cartridge.

Adjustable to suit your cartridge
Featuring no fewer than four cartridge settings, the Marantz’s phono pre-amp matches up with the vast majority of cartridges. Choose between MM (Moving Magnet), MC (Moving Coil) High, MC Mid and MC Low for the correct match with your turntable’s cartridge. Covering almost every cartridge out there, this amp will see you through years of turntable cartridge upgrades.

All the connectivity you need. None that you don’t
The Model 30 is unashamedly analogue, meaning there are no digital inputs. What you do get are the highest quality components, with the sound to match, and all the analogue sockets you could ask for. As well as the 4-level phono pre-amp, there are five line level RCA phono inputs and a recording output. Pre/power sockets let you upgrade either the pre or power sections in the future.

Premium build quality
Pick up the Model 30 and you can appreciate it’s built to last. Using thick, non-magnetic aluminium panels and a steel top cover, the amp resists both mechanical and electrical interference. The input sockets are machined from brass and the speaker terminals use high-purity nickel-plating for the best quality contact possible.

Treat your music to an amp that does it justice. The Marantz Model 30.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should I spend this much on an amp? Many years ago I bought my first integrated amp from Richer Sounds and it seems I have bought my last, at least for a good few years. I play mainly vinyl and the phono in the Model 30 is brilliant, as is the rest of the amp. Thanks to the Plymouth store for their help and advice on the phone. If you are sceptical of what improvements that an amp at this price can deliver then give this a trial at home. I doubt that you will be sending it back. It is that good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A class amplifier A class amp. This has to be the best class D amplifier available for the price. Yes moving from a Audiolab 6000a was always going to be a step up. But I was stunned at the extra clarity and detail on offer. The power to Drive my speakers all the features you could ask for(Although no Dac) Very happy with my purchase. Thanks to the guys at RS Southampton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great amp, great clarity . I bought the marantz 30 amp along with the marantz n30 sacd player and focal aria 906 speakers. The sound quality is amazing. I had a linn activ system but this is a big step up. I like the many things it does as well as play cds extremely well its connected to my laptop and plays great sounding 24 bit files , a lovely built in radio, bluetooth for spotify , a high quality phono for vinyl records and a high quality usb to play flac files from a seagate usb. Very happy with this system and it looks as good as it sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Analogue sound in the digital age At outset, I make no apology for being a teenager in the 1960’s. I was raised on vinyl and live music – my 1st concert in 1964 was to see an upcoming band called The Beatles. So I have always enjoyed a warm and accurate sound. This was reflected in my choice of QUAD amplification and Pro-Ac studio monitor speakers. When I committed to CDs I trialled lots of CD players and ended up choosing a Marantz CD6000 OSE K1 signature. 20 years later it still works fine. Yes, Marantz does have a distinct musical signature and is probably not for those who prefer a brighter ‘digital’ sound. After burning in – best to run the units 24/7 for at least 2 weeks (I used internet radio for convenience) – they ‘opened-up’. I started to realise how much control these units have over the full musical range. Not simply hearing things one hadn’t heard before – even after 50 years of listening to a particular song – but the sheer authority and sound stage. I listen to a very wide range of music (rock, jazz, classical, electronic) and I want to hear ‘everything’ without deafening the neighbours. Listening to music at home is about pleasure, not measuring technical parameters. The SACD is a versatile digital delight while the Model 30 amp is pure analogue. And it’s this combination which in my opinion works so well and is most likely what Marantz were aiming for. The grin on my face, and on other listeners to the system, is testament to what really good audio equipment paired with good sound sources can deliver. Closing ones eyes, as often as not the speakers ‘disappear’ leaving just the ‘image’ of a performance. When you go to play one song off a CD and end up listening to the lot, that’s a true sign of musical enjoyment. In summary: Both units are very well built and aesthetically both stylish and well laid out for ease of use. I have the black ones but the silver/gold units look great too. Paired together, they provide an extremely accurate yet warm sound – the ‘analogue’ of my musical upbringing. Avoid pairing them with warm sounding speakers. Throw away the standard power cables and invest in decent ones. Same applies to interconnect cables and of course speaker cables. With appropriate speakers, these units will show up the failings of poor quality recordings and really allow one to enjoy the joys of good quality recordings. Regardless, the addition of very usable tone controls allows one to compensate – the purist may be appalled but it’s about the music! The amp is very conservatively rated and will I’m sure drive any speaker to a level which will either blow the cones or ones eardrums. For the vinyl junkies out there, it also comes very well equipped on the phono side – I use CDs or streaming – but obviously use wireless or a LAN, not Bluetooth. They’re not cheap but at half the price of the Marantz top of the range units on which they’re heavily based, they’re good value. If you’re in the market for that ‘analogue’ sound and want a high quality 2 channel system, the Marantz should be on your listening list. Most of all, enjoy. And thanks Richer Sounds for all your help.
