Marantz HDAM Technology: Marantz's exclusive HDAM technology features
precision discrete components that provide wide dynamic range with low
distortion, outperforming conventional op-amp integrated circuit chips. HDAM
modules are used in the digital audio converter stages as well as the critical
analog audio stage.
Current Feedback Amplifier: Equipped with multiple high
current wide range power transistors, the PM6005 features the ability to handle
low impedance speakers, and is rated at 45 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 60
watts per channel into 4 ohms. The output stages feature current feedback
(originated by Marantz) instead of voltage feedback, for the lowest distortion
and highest stability.
High Current Power Supply: Featuring a high current high capacity
shielded toroidal power transformer, the power supply section also employs high
current high speed Shottky Barrier Diodes, along with high current storage
capacitors that together provide wide dynamic range along with low impedance
Reference Quality DAC: The PM6005 is equipped with a reference class
CS4398 24-bit/192kHz DAC for exceptional sound quality of your digital audio
sources. The digital audio section is housed in a shielded compartment to
prevent interference with the analog audio circuit blocks.
Analog & Digital Inputs: In addition to four other analog line level
inputs, the PM6005 also features a dedicated phono input, for compatibility with
moving magnet turntables. Both optical and coaxial digital audio inputs are
provided, for compatibility with a wide range of digital audio sources (2ch PCM
analog inputs and coaxial digital input are gold-plated for optimum signal
Gold-Plated Binding Posts: Equipped with two sets of speaker
terminals, the PM6005 can drive two pairs of speakers, or it can be connected to
one pair of bi-wiring compatible speakers, with one set of terminals for the low
range drivers and the other set connected to the high range drivers The PM6005
is fitted with eight gold-plated binding post terminals for long life and
optimum signal transfer integrity. The binding posts will accept banana plugs
(single/dual), pin connectors, and bare wire (up to 10AWG).
Fully Discrete Headphone Amp: For superb sound quality with the widest
range of headphone types, the PM6005 features a fully discrete headphone
amplifier that is able to handle just about any headphone type, regardless of
impedance or sensitivity. The high quality gold plated 1/4" headphone jack is
compatible with audiophile and studio headphones and adapters.
Tone Controls + Source Direct Mode: This unit has a tone control
function for adjustment of bass (low frequency) and treble (high frequency)
sound to produce your preferred sound. There is also Loudness feature which
compensates for human hearing characteristics by boosting the bass and treble
response at low volume levels to achieve a more pleasing tonal balance. The Source Direct function bypasses
unneeded circuit stages (such as the tone controls) for the most direct audio
path from input to output.
Aluminum/Glass-Reinforced Resin Front-Panel: The integrated
amplifier's front-panel uses a carefully chosen combination of aluminum &
glass-reinforced resin to create a distinctive three dimensional appearance.

Remote Control: Featuring an easy to use ergonomic design, the elegant
remote control can also be user to control the matching CD6005 CD player (sold
separately), as well as controlling a network player. Remote input and output
terminals let you connect the PM6005 to other Marantz components, such as the
matching CD6005 CD player, allowing you to place the PM6005 out of sight (such
as in a cabinet) yet still providing full remote control capabilities. The IR
(infrared) flasher port lets you connect the PM6005 to an external system remote
AC Outlets: The Marantz PM6005 is fitted with two switched &
one un-switched AC power outlets to connect your other A/V components.
Protection Circuit: The PM6005's Protection Circuit prevents
damage to devices within the power supply when an abnormality such as an
overload, excess voltage occurs or over temperature for any reason. If a
malfunction occurs in this unit, the power indicator blinks red and the unit
switches to standby mode.
Auto Standby Mode: With the Auto Standby Mode "On", this
unit will automatically enter the Auto Standby Mode after approximately 30
continuous minutes of no output from the speakers or headphones.
