Marantz PM8005 overview

  • 1Description

Enjoy audiophile-grade stereo sound with the PM8005 2-Channel Integrated Amplifier from Marantz. This integrated amplifier delivers 70W per channel at 8 ohms and 100W per channel at 4 ohms. This notable power output is supported by a high-current toroidal power transformer. Additionally, the PM8005 offers solid chassis construction that promotes stability and helps to reduce unwanted cabinet vibrations. Front-mounted bass, mid, treble, and balance controls give you the flexibility of fine-tuning audio playback.

With six stereo RCA inputs, the PM8005 allows you to connect a wide variety of analog audio sources like CD players, tuners, and network audio players. These inputs also include a direct phono input. This model's stereo RCA power amplifier input allows you to connect external amplifiers for speaker bi-amping or multi-channel integration.

Marantz HDAM Technology
The PM8005 features Marantz HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) technology, which consists of precision discrete selected circuit elements on a compact sub-board, instead of conventional op-amp integrated circuits. Multiple HDAM units are employed, including HDAM-SA3 and HDAM-SA2 versions that provide gain and buffering functions, to deliver dynamic and detailed sound quality. The PM8005 features current feedback technology for low distortion and wideband response, along with life-like musicality.
High-Current Power Supply
The robust power supply features a high-current toroidal main power transformer that is rated at 625VA, providing extra power to the amplifier stage in order to handle demanding short-term peaks. High-current Shottky barrier diodes in the rectification stage are rated at 20 amps, with the ability to handle up to 180 amps peak current, providing sufficient power reserve to handle virtually any loudspeaker load.
Fully Discrete High-Current Output Stages
The PM8005 is equipped with multiple high-speed, high-current power output devices that are each rated at 14 amps of current output capability, providing a high amount of dynamic headroom, along with compatibility with lower impedance loudspeakers. For optimum heat dissipation, the PM8005 is equipped with solid aluminum power amplifier heat sinks, with a combined total radiating area of 326 square inches, eliminating the need for fans. The PM8005 is rated at 70 W per channel into 8 ohms, and 100 watts per channel into 4 ohms, for compatibility with a wide range of loudspeakers.
Solid Chassis Construction
For stability and protection from induced vibrations, the PM8005 features a rugged chassis design, which includes a triple-layer bottom plate. To eliminate distortion from stray magnetic fields, the high-current toroidal main power transformer features double shielding.
Versatile Pre-Amplifier Functions
There are 6 line level inputs to handle a wide range of sources, including a dedicated phono input (MM) that features discrete topology to deliver high fidelity from your favorite vinyl recordings. All inputs and outputs are gold-plated for optimum signal transfer. The Source Direct function bypasses unnecessary circuit blocks for the straightest path from input to the speaker terminals. Pre-amp outputs let you connect a separate stereo power amplifier for a bi-amp loudspeaker system, or for playback in a separate room. The power amp direct input lets you connect the PM8005 to another component, such as a surround sound processor, for integration within a multi-channel home theater system.

For precision tonal balancing, the PM8005 is equipped with a Tri-Tone control system. This includes separate tone controls for the bass, midrange and treble bands, which lets you fine tune the spectral balance to your preference, and is suitable for use with older recordings that suffer from tonal imbalance.
Audiophile-Grade Loudspeaker Terminals
Equipped with audiophile-grade loudspeaker terminals that are designed to accept a wide range of speaker cable termination types, the PM8005 also features A/B speaker switching for increased system configuration flexibility.
System Remote Control
The ergonomically designed remote control is equipped with additional functionality, which lets you control a companion Marantz disc player and a Marantz network audio player. Remote control input and output jacks let you directly connect the PM8005 to other Marantz components for easy system control.
