Details

The Marantz PM6005 is the latest in a long line of quality stereo amplifiers from Marantz. This latest edition includes a built in DAC (the same one used within the award winning CD6005) so you'll be able to get the most out of digital sound from a variety of sources, including your own television if you desire.

There's plenty of inputs too, including a MM phono input, and an audio out for recording to tape or to any other recordable media. As usual there's also A/B speaker switching. We love using this to bi-amp our speakers to get the most out of them, but you can also use them to run a second pair of speakers in another room, albiet at the same volume as your main speakers.

The DAC is a wonderful addition - we used it with a Blu-ray player and found the results were close to the CD6005, although we still find the sound better from that CD player (plus USB is then possible too). Indeed, as a package with the CD6005 and perhaps some B&W or KEF speakers you should find you have a high quality system with relatively minimal fuss.

Marantz have obviously worked hard on improving sound over the PM6004 and although it isn't streets ahead, its still a good improvement and one we love. A strong recommendation on this one from us - great sound easily.
