You have probably heard that the Marantz PM8006 has a distinctive signature sound with smooth mid frequencies, focused and deep bass and beautiful, airy highs. But what are the Marantz PM8006 specs? Check out in this Marantz PM8006 review.
The device has relatively high power of 70W at 8 Ohms. Pretty decent figures. The Marantz PM8006 is equipped with an upscale built-in phono equalizer, the circuit of which has been completely redesigned by the company's engineers to exactly match today's current requirements for vinyl playback. The amplifier also uses proprietary HDAM modules that have proven themselves in the Marantz technique. The device circuit is built on discrete elements and is covered by current feedback, which allowed to obtain a linear operating characteristic, a wide dynamic range and minimize noise and distortion. In addition, such circuitry provides the necessary stability of the amplifier when working with speakers with a complex impedance characteristic.
The Marantz PM8006 integrated amplifier is made in a corporate design with a curly aluminum front panel, on which there are all controls arranged symmetrically relative to the vertical axis. In addition to the usual input selector and volume control, there are also tone controls for low, medium and high frequencies, as well as buttons for selecting operating modes. Among them is a selector of two pairs of connected speakers and “direct” audio supply bypassing auxiliary circuits, as well as turning on the input of a power amplifier. The amplifier is made on a three-layer chassis, eliminating the impact of any external vibrations on it.
On the rear panel of the amplifier are gold-plated RCA sockets for six signal sources, adjustable and unregulated outputs, as well as a direct input for supplying a signal to the terminal. There are also two pairs of proprietary speaker terminals and a D-Bus system bus connector.
