2-Channel Integrated Amp: The Marantz PM5005 is a two-channel integrated amplifier rated at
40 watts x 2-channels into 8-ohms and 55 watts x 2-channels into 4-ohms. This
unit has a high-quality audio design such as a minimized signal path, use of high
sound quality parts, and large power circuits; which is possible only in
discrete audio components. The amplifiers themselves are custom-designed
entirely with discrete components so you don't suffer any of the built-in
limitations of off-the-shelf integrated circuits.
Current Feedback Design: Current Feedback amplification is a
well known, Marantz' original circuit technology. The Current Feedback amplifier
technology fits perfectly with the high requirements set for Super Audio
software providing wide-bandwidth, high-speed reproduction. The impedance at the
Current Feedback point is limited resulting in a very low phase shift. Marantz
receivers and amplifiers equipped with Current Feedback can keep the phase
compensation via Negative FeedBack (NFB) to a minimum, resulting in high
through-rate, excellent transient response and superb sonic transparency for the
full bandwidth. Unlike conventional Voltage Feedback amplification, the Current
Feedback amplification makes the power amplifier in-sensitive to difficult
Analog Inputs/Outputs + Phono: The PM5005 is fitted with a
total of six analog stereo inputs (RCA) and two analog stereo outputs (RCA).
There is a Tuner, CD, Network and Phono (MM) input; as well as two sets of
Recorder inputs/outputs (1-2). All analog inputs are gold-plated for optimum
Gold-Plated Binding Posts: Equipped with two sets of speaker
terminals, the PM5005 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 PM5005
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).
Terminals Used ||Number Of
Connected Speakers ||Speaker
|Speakers A ||2 (1 pair) ||4-16
|Speakers B ||2 (1 pair) ||4-16
|Speakers A & B ||4 (2 pair) ||8-16 Ω |
Bi-Wired ||2 (1 pair) ||4-16
Headphone Amp: For superb sound quality with
the widest range of headphone types, the PM5005 features a
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 and glass-reinforced resin to create a distinctive three
dimensional appearance. Indirect reflecting blue LEDs indicating input
selection, heighten its elegant appearance.
Remote Control: Featuring an easy to use ergonomic design,
the elegant remote control can also be used to control the matching CD5005 CD
player (sold separately), as well as controlling a network player (like the
NA8005). Remote input and output terminals let you connect the PM5005 to other
Marantz components, such as the matching CD5005 CD player, allowing you to place
the PM5005 out of sight (such as in a cabinet) yet still providing full remote
control capabilities. The IR (infrared) flasher port lets you connect the PM5005
to an external system remote controller.
AC Outlets: The Marantz PM5005 is fitted with two switched &
one un-switched AC power outlets to connect your other A/V components.
Protection Circuitry: The PM56005's Protection Circuitry
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.
