Marantz introduced Marantz PM6006 integrated amplifier, which replaced the Marantz PM6005 integrated amplifier, the main difference in Marantz PM6006 specs is the additional optical input and assembl...Read More
The power of the amp is 40W per channel at 8 ohms. At the same time Onkyo A-9150 has 30W (8 Ohms). Thanks to the built-in converter CS4398 (24 bit / 192 kHz), the amplifier can be used as an external DAC. To do this, there is a coaxial input and a pair of optical inputs on its rear panel (the PM6005 model was equipped with only one optical connector), and the entire printed circuit board of the digital circuit is in a metal case-screen and does not adversely affect analog circuits. There is a set of linear RCA inputs, MM phono stage connectors, a recording output, and D-Bus system bus switching.
Onkyo A-9150 uses special Discrete SpectraModule discrete modules instead of conventional microcircuits. As a result, it is possible to increase the slew rate of the output signal and obtain exceptional linearity in a wide frequency band, as well as provide a high instantaneous voltage, which is ultimately expressed in its breathtaking depth of sound stage, improved separation of musical instruments and excellent transient characteristics. The power supply is equipped with a custom high-current transformer and a pair of high-quality high-capacitor capacitors.
The Onkyo A-9150 is better integrated amplifier in this comparison. Check Onkyo A-9150 price
