Featuring premium audiophile design at an affordable price, the Marantz PM5005 stereo
integrated amplifier features all-analog circuitry from input to output, and delivers
wide frequency response, high dynamic range along with true low impedance drive
capability and is rated to handle both 8 ohms and 4 ohms speakers.
Featuring current feedback power amplifier circuitry (a Marantz innovation), the
power amplifier section also features pure discrete analog circuitry along with
multiple high current discrete power output devices that are easily able to handle
lower impedance loads and deliver high instantaneous peak current capability.
Rated at 40 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 55 watts per channel into 4 ohms,
the PM5005 features A and B speaker outputs, for two sets of stereo speakers, or
for bi-wiring with compatible stereo speakers.
The deluxe remote control provides discrete source input buttons, and includes additional
buttons for direct control of the matching Marantz CD5005 player and Marantz Network
Current Feedback Discrete Power Amplifier
The PM5005 features a power amplifier section based on our renowned current feedback
technology, a Marantz innovation that debuted on our very first power amplifier.
High current discrete power output devices mounted on a generously-sized aluminum
heat sink together provide high instantaneous peak current capability, and are easily
able to handle dynamic bursts into lower impedance 4 ohm speaker loads (the current
capacity for each amplifier channel is a substantial 16 amps).
Wide Range of Connectivity Options
Veteran audiophiles and new generation music lovers both know that the sonic allure
of vinyl records often can't be matched by digital audio sources, and the PM5005
includes multiple analog inputs including a MM (moving magnet) phono input.
There are also dual recording inputs and outputs, along with a headphone amplifier
jack on the front panel, and the high grade speaker connectors can accept multiple
speaker cable termination types.
The audio input and output jacks are all gold plated for maximum signal integrity.
Source Direct Function
To ensure the shortest signal path and the highest fidelity, the PM5005 features
our Source Direct function, which bypasses the tone control and loudness control
Fully Discrete Volume Amplifier Circuit
The volume amplifier circuit features fully discrete circuitry (no op amp chips
in the signal path) for the widest bandwidth, lowest distortion, and highest dynamic
Elegant Remote Control
The elegant remote control includes additional function buttons that let you control
a Marantz CD player and a Marantz Network Audio Player, for total system control
with a single remote.
Versatile Remote Control Options
The PM5005 features remote control input and output jacks that let you hard wire
the amplifier directly to a Marantz CD player, which in turn can be hard wired to
a Marantz Network Audio Player.
For example, you can place a Marantz CD player on an open shelf for easy access,
and place the PM5005 and a Marantz Network Audio Player tucked away in a cabinet
and hidden from view, and control all 3 units with a single remote, which helps
to eliminate component clutter.

A recent reviewer said, "I have a set of Dynaudio Audience 50 for more than 10 years now. They were always hooked up to a mid range A/V receiver that I wasn't aware how limiting it was. I decided to upgrade my Home Theatre and dedicate that pair of speakers for a living room dedicated stereo system. After some research I ended up going with the Marantz 5005 integrated amp that while it had less bells and whistles in terms of digital inputs, it has the phono input and better power (on paper). Oh boy! This little guy can really move those Dynaudio like they have never been moved. They sound clear and well rounded like never before. The amp is also very elegant and well looking. Right now I'm mainly using it with a turntable and the occasional Sonos play. Good investment."
