2Ch Integrated Amplifier: The Marantz PM6004 is a two-channel integrated amplifier rated at
45 watts x 2-channels into 8-ohms & 60 watts x 2-channels into 4-ohms. 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 Amplifier:
The Marantz PM6004 features current feedback design. This unit uses a high-speed
current feedback amplifier circuit for its preamplifier and power amplifier so
that signals from the your audio source can be amplified with high fidelity. This extraordinary circuit
accurately tracks quickly changing, wide bandwidth musical signals for greater
resolution of fine musical detail. The high-speed current feedback amplifier
reproduces a natural sound space.
High Quality Audio Design: 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.
- High-Power Output: This unit features a slim-line body, but utilizes a
large power supply for dynamic music reproduction with high-power.
- Symmetrical Circuit Layout: To achieve the best possible sonic
performance, signal paths need to be short, direct & mirror imaged. The
construction of the integrated amplifier's circuitry provides improved
stereo imaging by ensuring close to perfect symmetry between right & left
- Shottky Diodes: A Shottky diode is a special type of diode with a
very low forward-voltage drop compared to normal diodes. This lower voltage
drop translates into higher system efficiency. Shottky diodes have very fast
signal handling, can easily stay higher temperatures and are sensitive very
- Toroidal Transformer: A toroidal transformer has several
advantages over a normal EI core transformer. It is very efficient &
therefore delivers more power compared to the same size of an EI core
transformer. In addition, due to its shape, the electromagnetic radiation &
the mechanical vibration are extremely low all ending in a better sound
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. Indirect reflecting blue LEDs indicating input
selection, heighten its elegant appearance.
Protection Circuit: The integrated amplifier's Protection Circuit is
activated in the following situations.
- If the speaker cable wire touches the rear-panel or screws; or if the
speaker cable wire touches the speaker cable's positive & negative sides
- If the surround temperature is extremely high.
- If the inside of the amplifier gets hot from extended use at a high
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.
A mechanical switch turns the main power on/off. When off, the remote has no
effect. When on, the remote can be used to switch between on and standby.
Input Selector: A rotary knob is used to select the input source (Phono, CD, Tuner, AUX/DVD,
Recorder 1/2,) for listening.
Speakers: These buttons
turn the speaker output to the speakers connected to the Speaker System A/B
terminals on the rear panel On and Off.
Source Direct: There is a Source Direct switch so you can
bypass tone and balance controls for the shortest signal path from input to
output. When source direct is engaged the bass, treble, and balance circuits are
Tone Control: This unit has
a tone control function for adjustment of bass (low frequency) and treble (high
frequency) sound to produce your preferred sound.
- Bass: A rotary knob to adjust the bass output; +/-10 dB
@ 100 Hz.
- Treble: A rotary knob to adjust the treble output; +/-10 dB
@ 10 kHz.
Balance: A rotary knob to adjust the left/right balance.
Loudness: The Loudness features compensates for human hearing
characteristics by boosting the bass and treble response at low volume levels to
achieve a more pleasing tonal balance.
Remote Control: The supplied wireless remote will control
the PM6004 & Marantz CD players,
DVD players, tuners, or tape decks.
Gold-Plated Speaker Terminals: The speaker system A & system B outputs are
gold-plated binding posts. They are not 5-way posts, but will accept
banana plugs (single/dual), pin connectors, & bare wire.
Gold-Plated Inputs/Outputs: The PM6004 is fitted with gold-plated
stereo RCA inputs & outputs.
- Line Inputs: The CD, Tuner, & Aux/DVD inputs are
gold-plated stereo RCA connectors.
Recorder 1 (CD-R) & Recorder 2 (MD/Tape) have gold-plated stereo RCA inputs/outputs.
- Phono (MM):
The RCA phono input will accept moving magnet (MM) cartridges. There is a ground
terminal beside the phono input.
Remote control: An RCA input and an RCA output are used with other compatible Marantz components using the D.BUS remote system, CD player, DVD player, Tuner, etc. This allows
the included remote to control the other Marantz components.
Flasher In: This 3.5mm terminal is to control the unit from another
zone with an optional keypad (sold separately).
Headphone: A standard 1/4" headphone jack is on the front panel. The speaker outputs
are not automatically muted when you plug in headphones so the speakers must be
manually turned off.
AC Outlets: The Marantz PM6004 is fitted with two switched & one
un-switched AC power outlets to connect your other A/V components.
