Marantz PM8006 - Integrated Amplifier with New Phono EQ

With a fully discrete current feedback design, the PM8006 integrated amplifier is perfect for audiophiles wanting both excellent music quality and flexible operation. It offers a powerful 2x 70W into 8 ohm, while the symmetrical circuits ensure optimal imaging. To ensure the most involving musical experience, the amplifier uses a new Marantz-designed electric volume control for high linearity and best-in-class channel separation and to make the most of vinyl replay there’s the brand-new Marantz Musical Phono EQ phono preamp stage, designed to get the purest signal from beloved vinyl by minimized noise levels.

For the integrated amplifier connoisseur, the PM8006 delivers the power you expect from a Marantz. Not only does it deliver the controlled power that audiophiles demand, it creates the warm musical sound you expect from Marantz.

The Most Musical Sound

Extensively tuned by Marantz sound masters to deliver an exquisite sonic signature. No component leaves the hands of Marantz sound masters until it passes rigorous testing. Envelop yourself with the most musical sound, from any source.

Current Feedback Amplifier

Current Feedback amplification is a well-known, Marantz-original circuit technology, thoughtfully designed to match the requirements of Super Audio hi-res music for wide-bandwidth, high-speed reproduction. The impedance at the Current Feedback point is limited, generating a very low phase shift. Marantz Current Feedback amplifiers reduce the need for phase compensation by minimizing Negative Feedback (NFB). This simplifies the signal path and results in a high through-rate, excellent transient response and superb sonic transparency across the full bandwidth. Unlike conventional Voltage Feedback topology, Current Feedback also makes the power amplifier insensitive to difficult loudspeaker loads.


Marantz HDAM Technology

Marantz developed its own discrete circuit boards called Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Modules, or HDAMs, to replace the chip based amps used elsewhere. Using discrete surface mount components with short mirror-image left and right signal paths, HDAMs outperform the regular integrated Op-amps dramatically in Slew Rate and noise level. The result is much more dynamic, accurate and detailed sound. Over the years, Marantz has developed different HDAMs to fit the particular requirements of players and amplifiers. The PM8006 uses the high-grade SA3 version.

High-Quality Volume Control

A newly developed electric volume control using the latest volume control IC realizes better channel separation, dynamic range and distortion-reduction, while retaining the operational feel of an analogue volume control device. To ensure the most involving musical experience, the amplifier uses a new Marantz-designed electric volume control for high linearity and best-in-class channel separation.

Marantz Musical Phono EQ

For a long time, Marantz integrated amplifiers have featured high-quality phono stages. We’ve elevated our commitment to vinyl with the Marantz Musical Phono EQ stage, as seen in the PM8006 amplifier. Enjoy the very best playback of all music sources, be they digital or analog. Marantz Musical Phono EQ uses two-stage amplification, allowing less gain per stage for lower distortion. The PM8006 combines Marantz HDAM technology with JFETs (junction gate field-effect transistors) in the input stage, providing high input impedance that eliminates the need for AC coupling capacitors and simplifies the signal path, vastly improving the signal purity overall.

Marantz rethought the re-equalization process within the phono stage, splitting it into passive and active sections for more accurate equalization. The RIAA correction is carried out within an HDAM, while amplification is in the hands of a high-quality op-amp that runs in Class A mode for minimal distortion and clean, open sound. With Marantz Musical Phono EQ there’s no need to consider upgrading the PM8006 with offboard phono stage — the amplifier already includes premium-class phono capability for optimized playback of all formats.

 

Toroidal Transformer

A Toroidal transformer offers several advantages that derive from its efficiency and power capability. The shape of it lends to low levels of electromagnetic radiation and mechanical vibration, producing improved sound quality over what you might experience with dated transformer models.

Original Marantz SPKT-1+ Speaker Terminals

The terminals are made of massive brass with a thick silver plating for the best possible contact with the speaker cables, and the main speaker terminals are mounted lower, and thus closer to the main circuit board, to reduce the signal path. That’s in keeping with the entire design of the amplifier, which uses the shortest possible signal paths and High Instantaneous Current topology for better speed and dynamics.

Backed by Over 65 Years of Heritage

The most musical sound. Founded in 1953, Marantz has a long and rich history of designing audio components embraced by music lovers and critical listeners around the world. Because Music Matters, the PM8006 carries on the long Marantz tradition of delivering a best-in-class listening experience for music and cinema.
