VERY HAPPY!

Craig the PianoTecAmazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great sounding amp. It presents a large detailed sound stage. I am hearing things that I haven't heard before. For example, last night I put on a CD of the King Singers which is an acappella performance of Beatle tunes. On my previous equipment, this CD sounded a bit harsh and thin.

The best sounding preamp in its price range, even though it has been superseded.

  • Summary: Arrived very well packed. Once hooked up, the sound is just amazing! And plenty of inputs for just about anything you could want or need. This Marantz PM5004 Integrated Stereo Amplifier put my old SAE to shame!

Needs careful matching or else...

  • Summary: I bought from a local dealer in Lithuania. I auditioned it and liked it on the spot - classic Marantz signature, spacious, detailed and dynamic sound. I had also just purchased a Pioneer N-70A streamer (which I chose over Marantz NA-8005 for various reasons).

Excellent upper enty-level audio amp.

  • Summary: Pairs nicely with iPod Classic and (good) headphones. Ditch the earbuds and discover what your MP3s really sound like. Also a good turntable for those resurrecting their LP collection like me. Amp has a seventies/eighties sound and look, which enhances the whole vinyl experience.

This amp was a better option for me than going through the vintage route

  • Summary: Bought to pair with my SL 1200 and a pair of Whaferdale Diamond 10.1. I got my SL 1200 brand new in late 2008, and always knew that my entry level Teac receiver/amp and Sony speakers were a budget compromise.

Great Amp

  • Summary: I thought that I had a good amp, then I bought this. It blows the class D (Fiio A1) I was using out of the water. Very balanced frequencies but still has character. Plenty of power. Only complaints are the use of plastic on the front corners and knobs.

Great Integrated Amp

Ben, Crutchfield
7 February 2015
  • Summary: Solid Marantz performance. I use its pre out to feed the 150wpc Marantz MM 7025 for my more power friendly mains, while using the onboard A & B speaker outs for a set of bookshelves in the kitchen and my outdoor speakers.
  • Pros: Classic sound, Control options, pre and power separation choice, speaker defeats. Build quality.
  • Cons: Not much for me. At this price you can't do much better.

Great Performer

Mike P., Crutchfield

  • Summary: The PM8005 replaces my Yamaha A-S300. It makes a difference. The PM8005 has a more dimensional, full bodied sound [not harsh in the highs or shallow in the mid-range]. The 70 watts per channel keeps the sound clean and inviting at both lower and higher volumes.
  • Pros: Full bodied sound ; effective tone controls; smooth, natural sounding base; extremely well built. In short, a great sounding, high quality integrated amplifier.
  • Cons: None
