Marantz Intros New Entry Level Integrated Amp and CD Player

Marantz has introduced the new PM6007 Integrated Amplifier and CD6007 CD Player, designed for listeners who are ready to take the next step in their two channel Hi-Fi system. 

Both products are finely tuned by the Marantz sound master and boast performance-based features like Marantz’s classic current feedback amplification topology and a reference quality AK4490 DAC. 

The PM6007 Integrated Amplifier (US$599) is a two-channel integrated amplifier that features a Toroidal power transformer and larger power supply capacitors and delivers 45 watts per channel (8ohm, 20Hz-20kHz). Designed by a team drawing on more than 65 years of Hi-Fi expertise, the Current Feedback Amplifier technology with HDAM-SA3 circuitry used in the PM6007 provides wide bandwidth and dynamic range, depth of sound, and detail from every recording, says Marantz. In combination with the high-current power supply, the PM6007’s amplifier maintains a large energy reserve to drive demanding speakers. 

With both analog and digital inputs (five analog inputs, one coaxial input, and two optical digital inputs) including an onboard Moving Magnet phono preamp and with a subwoofer output, you can enjoy high resolution digital content thanks to an internal reference quality AK4490 DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) capable of up to 192-kHz/24-bit resolution for optimum playback fidelity. 

The PM6007 is built with high-quality speaker terminals with A/B switching capability, a fully shielded internal DAC unit, copper assembly screws, and rigid feet.

At US$449, the CD6007 CD Player offers specially-selected premium-grade components and an enhanced circuit layout including an oversized, low-noise power supply with high-speed, high-current Shottky Barrier Diodes, and 120% larger capacitors from previous model for improved stability and reduced AC noise. The CD6007 features a new, reference-quality AK4490 DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) offering two selectable filter options. 

The new DAC provides up to 192-kHz/24-bit and DSD 5.6MHz resolution for CD playback as well as high-resolution digital files accessed from a USB memory stick. CD and CD-R/RW discs as well as WAV, MP3, AAC, WMA, FLAC HD, ALAC, AIFF, and DSD files are supported. The analog signal in the CD6007 is driven by Marantz’s proprietary HDAM-SA2 low-level amplifier to gold-plated outputs on the rear panel. Rigid feet and a double-layered bottom panel eliminate unwanted vibration from reaching the precision mechanism inside the player. 

The CD6007 features an internal headphone amplifier with a gain setting to accommodate a wide range of headphones types. Also included is a new remote that also controls the PM6007 amplifier. 

The Marantz PM6007 and CD6007 are available now in black or silver-gold.
