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.
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.Advanced Digital-to-Analog Conversion with PCM and DSD Decoding
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 sound quality.
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 amplifier block.
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 response.
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.
