Marantz PM5005 Stereo Amplifier
Another brilliant Hi-Fi component from the industry experts in Hi-Fi. Marantz have been producing breathtakingly brilliant stereos for generations and the PM5005 is their latest amplifier which offers a little taste of the top-end Hi-Fi for an incredibly affordable price.
Marantz have introduced features on the PM5005 that are normally reserved for their reference-level kit. Current feedback architecture is a technology that provides much faster signal handling that previous models at this level which gives you sound that is not only perfectly balanced but boasts superb precision. An improvement in circuitry and finely tuned components are other further performance enhancements which will further your musical enjoyment.
There's more than enough power in the PM5005 to drive most domestic loudspeakers big and small. 40 watts of power handling per channel gives enough fuel for speakers to sound their best with vibrations dampened thanks to the strong metal chassis and front metal panel. The PM5005 is also versatile with A+B speaker arrays meaning you can either bi-wire or bi-amp a pair of speakers or run two pairs simultaneously and/or separately.
Just to provide that final bit of classiness, Marantz have tweaked the front knob design and revamped the remote control for extra user-friendliness which can also be used to operate the CD5005 - another good reason to match the amplifier up to it's equally as impressive CD Player sibling. The Marantz PM5005 comes in two finishes; classic black or silver.

Speaker A/B for the connection of two pair of speakers at the same time. They can run single as A or B, but as well as A+B at the same time.
Current Feedback amplification is a well known Marantz original circuit technology. The Current Feedback amplifier technology fits perfectly with the high requirements set for Super Audio software providing wide-bandwidth, high-speed reproduction. The impedance at the Current Feedback point is limited resulting in a very low phase shift. Marantz receivers and amplifiers equipped with Current Feedback can keep the phase compensation via Negative FeedBack (NFB) to a minimum, resulting in high through-rate, excellent transient response and superb sonic transparency for the full bandwidth. Unlike conventional Voltage Feedback amplification, the Current Feedback amplification makes the power amplifier in-sensitive to difficult loudspeaker loads.
Marantz products all carry the environmental logo. This logo proves the environmental way of thinking within Marantz. This does not stop with the low power consumption of all Marantz products in stand-by modus, but it also underlines the environmental way of working and producing within Marantz and the use of environmental approved components that do not contain hazardous chemical elements. As much as possible will be done to stress the environment as less as possibly can.
Pure / Source Direct / Audio EX(clusive)
Special listening modes that provide the highest possible signal purity. They can be used for both analogue and digital sources, with two-channel or multi-channel inputs. When selected, the signal follows the most direct path not passing the tone and bass management circuitry or any DSP (digital signal processor) of AV Receiver or on players pitch control, digital output or the display will be switched off. The less processing and functionalities the closer the signal is to the original, the less it is distorted.
