The new Marantz PM8006 Amplifier comes packed with a wide range of impressive features that have been included in order to make your listening experience even better than ever before.

Key Features

  • Current Feedback for wide bandwidth and high-speed reproduction of Super Hi-Res audio
  • Lower positioning of speaker cable terminal brings it closer to the circuitry
  • Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Modules (HDAM)
  • High-Quality Volume Control
  • Toroidal transformer
  • Musical Phono EQ

Current Feedback

A well-known Marantz circuit technology, Current Feedback amplification allows for wide bandwidth and high-speed reproduction of Super Hi-Res audio. Impedance is limited at the Current Feedback point – resulting in an extremely low phase shift, and enabling the PM8006’s Current Feedback amplifiers to reduce the need for phase compensation through the Negative FeedBack (NFB) to an absolute minimum. With a signal path that has been simplified, this amplifier will result in a high through-rate, an excellent transient response, and astounding sonic transparency throughout the entire bandwidth. Current Feedback will ensure the power amplifier remains insensitive to difficult loudspeaker loads – a feature that makes the PM8006 a step above most amplifiers fitted with the more conventional Voltage Feedback Topology.

HDAM Technology

The PM8006 amplifier features Marantz’s very own Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Modules (HDAM) to replace chip-based amps that would otherwise have been used throughout the unit. These HDAMs use discrete surface mount components with short mirror-image left and right signal paths in order to dramatically improve upon regular integrated op-amps, making sure the slew-rate and noise levels produce a much more accurate and lifelike sound. With Marantz constantly working to improve upon previous technologies, there have been several versions of these impressive HDAMs created to meet the particular requirements of specific modules; as such, the PM8006 amplifier features high-grade SA3 version HDAMs.

Musical Phono EQ

The Marantz PM8006 Amplifier uses a unique Musical Phono EQ technology that simplifies the signal path in the amplifier’s phono stage in order to produce only the best sound quality possible. Using two-stage amplification, Musical Phono EQ technology will ensure less grain per stage, ensuring the absolute minimum amount of distortion. Combining the HDAMs with JFETs (Junction Gate Field-Effect Transistors) within the input stage means the PM8006 is able achieve a high-input impedance, thus allowing for the deletion of AC coupling capacitors, and ensuring a signal path that remains simple even for the minimised output of a phono cartridge.

A fundamental part of vinyl replay is the process of re-equalisation. With the PM8006 Amplifier’s Musical Phono EQ, re-equalisation has been split into passive and active sections. This allows for a more accurate equalisation, with RIAA carried out within the HDAMs, while amplification is carried out by a high-quality op-amp running in Class A mode to ensure minimum distortion. Thanks to this, there is absolutely no need to consider upgrading the PM8006 with an off-board phono stage, as the Musical Phono EQ offers playback optimisation across all formats, whether that is digital or analogue. Musical Phono EQ technology will always ensure a clean and open sound for all of your favourite music.

Toroidal Transformer

The Toroidal transformer found within the PM8006 Amplifier offers an abundance of advantages when compared to the more conventional EI core transformer, including improved efficiency and better delivery of power. Due to the shape of the Toroidal transformer, electromagnetic radiation and mechanical vibration has been kept as low as possible in order to produce the best sound quality possible.

High-Quality Volume Control

The Marantx PM8006 Amplifier comes with a newly developed volume control that uses the latest volume control IC to realise better channel separation, dynamic range, and distortion-reduction – all while retaining the feel of analogue volume control devices. This volume control will ensure the most astounding musical experience, with high linearity and best in class channel separation.

SPKT-1+ Speaker Terminals

The terminals on the Marantz PM8006 are made of massive brass with thick silver plating for the perfect contact with speaker cables. The mains speaker cable terminals have been mounted lower in order to become closer to the main circuit board, thus reducing the signal path and remaining in-keeping with the overall design of this amplifier.
