Summary: Great integrated amp for smaller system. I paired this IA with NHT's reissued SuperOne speakers. Sources are internet radio streams, CD, and TV (YouTube). I like the Marantz way with their integrateds. Yamaha has comparable integrateds but I prefer *looking* at the Marantz. Sadly, these are now assembled in China. So why not five stars? Well, I also have the PM8004 and the build quality of the PM6004 is nowhere near as substantial.
Summary: Great amp with plenty of power and stylish unit. Have CD and phono hooked up...both sound amazing. Great value for about 450 dollars. Never been disappointed with anything by Marantz. now or in the past 40 years..
Summary: I am yet to hook up my tuner but with a regular DVD player or an iPad (pandora) connected to a pair of bower & wilkins speakers is all you need to listen to warm distortion free music. An interesting observation was that classical, rock, jazz, Celtic and Indian music are reproduced with way more fidelity and integrity than other categories of music.
Summary: HI, I bought my second amplifier PM6004 on Amazon the 14th of November in 2013 (5 months ago). I bought a first one on October 30th on amazon too, and I returned this unit after 1 week because it had a constantly noise on "aux" input. Impossible to listen music ! With my second unit, I had for 2 weeks some loudly cracks when I was listening music. I change the input player and the RCA cable but I still had this issue. I got a big "boom" sound and the amplifier get down.
Almost perfect for an inexpensive introduction to high fidelity

Summary: I won't go into the details of all the features - the specifications are listed and they all work as described. I purchased this amp for a small hifi system based on a new turntable. I wanted to play those 20 year old records! The phonograph input is what got me to look at this particular model. To my humble ears, the records sound as good as they ever did, if not better. So, for a simple and good sounding low-cost hifi system I couldn't recommend this more highly.
Summary: I am very pleased with my purchase. The performance and price made this a very positive experience. I would recommend this vendor to others and will use them in the future when purchasing similar items.
Summary: Prompt delivery. Good packaging. This replaced a more powerful Kenwood (KA-7300) integrated amplifier from forty years ago which ceased to function. This product is superior in every way. Great price.
Summary: These are only first impressions of this amp and I will update this review later if necessary. Marantz has actually replaced the 6004 with a newer model, the 6005 which has digital inputs but the 6004 continues to be readily available. It can be had now for about $200 less than its previous price and at $399 it's a real steal. First let me address the assembled in China issue.
Summary: I'm a pragmatic audiophile driving 2 paradigm monitor 7's with this. Stereo output from fanless HTPC via Asus Xonar sound card ASUS PCI-Express x1 Sound Card XONAR ESSENCE STX/90-YAA0C0-0UAN00Z . Like the source direct feature and auto shut-off.
