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: 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 $399 it's a real steal. First let me address the assembled in China issue.
Summary: I'm a pragmatic audiophile driving 2 paradigm monitor 7's with this. Stereo output from fanless HTPC via Asus Xonar sound card ASUS PCI-Express x1 Sound Card XONAR ESSENCE STX/90-YAA0C0-0UAN00Z . Like the source direct feature and auto shut-off.
Summary: I am not an audiophile, but I like to listen to good music. I bought in about 8 months ago. And I am loving it. I dont have a dedicated DAC yet, but still like the sound it produces on my KEF (Q700).. nice bass not boomy and good mid range, can feel the voice of the vocalist... But now they have a new version with a DAC bulit in PM6005, with some more tweak in the amplifier area go for it, you wont regret.
Summary: I have 2. One of them is used only to listen to CDs on headphones and the sound is incredible with high end Sennheisers. The other one is used to play music thru my top of the line Polk speakers. I could buy more expensive amps, but short of some of the handmade ones from Germany which are a significant multiple of the cost of the 6004, I think its a waste of money. Someone with a better ear may disagree.
Summary: rated 5 star by what is hifi magazine, a big step-up from the older 6003 version. however, i can not say i like it very much, and also i can not say it is trash. it just work as it should be, do not bring me any surprise, compared with my old marantz receiver. around 500$, pm6004 is one of best choice of new amplifier you can find in the market, but it might not be the best choice. there are many better vintage amplifiers in this price range.
