The PM5005 2-Channel Integrated Amplifier from Marantz is designed to deliver high-quality stereo sound. This integrated amplifier is equipped with a discrete power amplifier design that produces up to 40W per channel at 8 ohms and 55W per channel at 4 ohms. Front-mounted bass, treble, and balance controls give you the flexibility of fine-tuning audio playback. With six stereo RCA inputs, the PM5005 allows you to connect a wide variety of analog audio sources like CD players, tuners, recorders, and network audio players. These inputs also include a direct phono input for turntable connections.
Current Feedback Discrete Power Amplifier
The PM5005 features a power amplifier section thats based on Marantzs current feedback technology. High-current discrete power output devices mounted on a generously-sized aluminum heat sink to provide high instantaneous peak current capability, and are able to handle dynamic bursts into lower impedance 4 ohm speaker loads (the current capacity for each amplifier channel is a notable 16 amps).
Wide Range of Connectivity Options
The PM5005 includes multiple analog inputs including a MM (moving magnet) phono input. There are also dual recording inputs and outputs, along with a headphone amplifier jack on the front panel, and the high-grade speaker connectors can accept multiple speaker cable termination types. The audio input and output jacks are all gold-plated for maximum signal integrity.
Source Direct Function
To help ensure the shortest signal path and the highest fidelity, the PM5005 features a Source Direct function, which bypasses the tone control and loudness control circuitry.
Fully Discrete Volume Amplifier Circuit
The volume amplifier circuit features fully discrete circuitry (no op amp chips in the signal path) for wide bandwidth, low distortion, and high dynamic range.
The included remote control has additional function buttons that let you control a Marantz CD player and a Marantz Network Audio Player, for total system control with a single remote.
Versatile Remote Control Options
The PM5005 features remote control input and output jacks that let you hard wire the amplifier directly to a Marantz CD player, which in turn can be hard wired to a Marantz Network Audio Player. For example, you can place a Marantz CD player on an open shelf for easy access, and place the PM5005 and a Marantz Network Audio Player tucked away in a cabinet and hidden from view, and control all 3 units with a single remote, which helps to eliminate component clutter.
