Marantz PM7005 2 Channel Digital Integrated
Amplifier with USB PCM & DSD Playback
Enjoy superb sound from your favorite analog and digital sources with the Marantz
PM7005 integrated stereo amplifier. Featuring a high current discrete power output
stage with current feedback (a Marantz innovation), the PM7005 is also equipped
with our exclusive HDAM technology, employing proprietary circuit modules with discrete
components that deliver ultra-wideband response and fast slew rate.
The versatile PM7005 features multiple analog and digital inputs, including optical
and coaxial digital inputs along with a USB-B 2.0 for direct connection to computer
high resolution digital audio sources. Featuring the reference-class CS4398 high
resolution D/A converter, the PM7005 can decode high resolution digital audio files
up to 24 bits and 192 kHz sampling. It's also compatible with DSD 2.8 MHz and 5.6
MHz high resolution files (the same system found on SACD), and the asynchronous
USB-B port also features jitter removal for the most pristine sound quality.
There are multiple analog inputs, including a MM phono input, along with dual recording
inputs and outputs, and the Source Direct function bypasses the balance and tone
controls for the shortest signal path, while the Analog mode disables the digital
circuitry when listening to analog sources.
Current Feedback Discrete Power Amplifier
Instead of employing conventional voltage-based feedback in the power amp section,
the PM7005 features current feedback, a Marantz innovation that delivers superb
fidelity and lowest distortion. The amp section consists of all discrete circuitry
(no op-amps), and features high current discrete power output devices that provide
high instantaneous peak current capability, and the PM7005 is rated at 60 watts
per channel into 8 ohm loads and 80 watts per channel into 4 ohm loads.
Wide Range of Connectivity Options
The PM7005 is equipped with numerous analog inputs, including dual recording inputs
and outputs, and features coaxial and optical digital inputs, along with a USB-B
2.0 asynchronous input for high resolution computer audio files.
There are 2 sets of audiophile quality speaker connectors that let you connect 2
pairs of speakers (A, B, A+B), or you can connect the PM7005 to a single pair of
bi-wire compatible speakers.
Advanced Digital-to-Analog Conversion with PCM and DSD Decoding
For optimum decoding of high resolution audio tracks, the PM7005 features the reference-class
CS4398 D/A converter, which is also found on Marantz reference disc players and
amplifiers. The PM7005 can accept a broad range of digital audio sampling frequencies
and bit depths, all the way up to 24 bits and 192 kHz sampling.
In addition to decoding high resolution PCM tracks, the PM7005 can also decode DSD
high resolution audio files, at 2.8 and 5.6 MHz. DSD is the advanced digital audio
system found on SACD, and is often preferred by critical listeners for its natural
Equipped with dual master clocks for the digital-to-analog conversion function,
the PM7005 also features a fully-enclosed and shielded digital audio block to prevent
interference between the analog and digital audio sections.
Source Direct Function; Analog Amplifier Mode
The Source Direct function bypasses unnecessary analog circuitry (the balance control
and the bass and treble controls) for the shortest and straightest signal path.
The Analog amplifier mode shuts down the entire digital audio block, to prevent
interference when listening to analog sources.
USB-B 2.0 Asynchronous Port with Jitter Removal
For the highest sound quality with computer audio sources, the PM7005 is equipped
with a USB-B 2.0 asynchronous port along with dedicated jitter removal processing
to provide the highest sound quality with high resolution digital tracks.
Advanced HDAM Discrete Buffer Amplifier Modules
The PM7005 features our latest HDAM-SA3 (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) components,
which consist of matched precision discrete selected circuit elements on a compact
sub-board, instead of conventional op-amp integrated circuits. HDAM modules are
used in the phono amp/equalizer block, the digital audio block and in the power
The latest generation Marantz HDAM-SA3 modules provide a full 10 dB of signal-to-noise
improvement over earlier HDAM versions, along with ultra wide-band response (100
kHz, -3 dB) for crystal clear treble detail.
Fully Discrete Volume Amplifier Circuit
The volume amplifier circuit features all-discrete circuit components (no op-amps
in the signal path) for the purest sound quality, lowest distortion and widest frequency
Versatile Remote Control Options
Equipped with remote control input and output jacks, the PM7005 lets you connect
via your Marantz player and/or your Marantz network audio player so you can place
the amplifier in a cabinet out of sight and have it remotely controlled along with
the disc and network audio players with a single remote control, which helps to
reduce component clutter.
The elegant remote control includes dedicated buttons for a Marantz disc player
and a Marantz network audio player.
60+ Years of Audiophile Heritage
Founded in 1953, Marantz has a long and rich history of designing audiophile components
that have been embraced by music lovers and critical listeners around the world.
Because Music Matters so much in our lives, the PM7005 carries on our long tradition
of delivering a superlative music listening experience.
