The power output of these units is uncomparable as far as Yamaha has 100W while its opponent can boast only 35W at 8 Ohms. High power output and a good power supply provide easy, undistorted transmission of peak signals. Low output impedance ensures operation with any acoustics. A high-quality built-in DAC has coaxial, optical (PCM) and USB inputs (DSD). High-quality tone block - low noise, with the correct frequency response. When on / off “Direct” noise is not added and timbre color is not introduced at the zero position of the controllers (frequency response is linear). Unlike many other amplifiers, where the use of a tempo block noticeably changes and spoils the sound.
The rear panel of the Marantz PM8005 has five line inputs, an input for connecting an MM-cartridge of a turntable, and an output for a recording device. In addition, an adjustable output from the preamplifier and a direct input of the tip are provided here - their presence opens up the possibility of a subsequent upgrade of the system based on the Marantz PM8005. All connectors on the amplifier have gold-plated contact surfaces. PM 8005 can also be used in direct connection mode, which allows you to enjoy audio in its purest, unchanged form.
