Great amplifier..Marantz is back!

Robert H., Amazon
25 February 2014
  • Summary: Actually, I am giving 41/2 stars.. I love the amp.. plenty of power, sounds great, tri-tone function is great..never runs hot..essentially does its job.. build exudes quality.. made in JAPAN.. I wish the darn thing had an LED on the volume knob..the knob is black and in a dark room, difficult to see rotation when using remote.. otherwise, very pleased with purchase and would recommend...

Great product, Best in Class

  • Summary: I am soooo happy with this Integrated Amplifier. I was switching from 7.1 channel surround, more moded to tv/movie watching, back to a 2.0 system, more moded to music. I have never regretted the change. My TV and movies still sound great and music, well it is like a live concert in my living room when I start this up. I use the speaker switcher to be sure I still have surround sound.

Marantz is Back?

Kloid, Amazon

  • Summary: For so many years I have refused to purchase ANY Marantz product due to poor quality control. Let's face it, Marantz was owned by Phillips who perpetrated the SACD-1000 debaucle and dumped customers and retailers alike. So what I am I doing purchasing a Marantz product? Well, after reading several reviews and scrutinizing many blogs about the "New" Marantz line, I became intrigued.

BEWARE!!!!!

Harold, Amazon

  • Summary: This amp is to be used as a solo amp,no equalizer or Bose 901 will work on it. Marantz has set it up this way,its a clean sounding amp with many limitations to it. If your running it with extras it wont work-read carefully and contact Marantz like I did if you have questions. Marantz should have made it clear to the consumer first that this amp only works with certain add on.

Robust & Quiet

JazzMann "Jazz-Wine-Sun", Amazon

  • Summary: Here's a brief review of the Marantz PM8004 integrated amp. My initial impression when I removed the amp from the box was that this is a quality Japanese product, robustly made. You can tell it's made to last. Construction high points: Large toroidal transformer, Nichicon Capacitors, unusually massive speaker terminals (two sets), weighty Japanese quality construction (27 pounds).

Harmonics and Music

  • Summary: A rainbow can be a metaphor for hopes and dreams. I've learned to adjust the size of my rainbow to my budget. A thousand dollars for an amplifier, while not much for many audiophiles, is knocking at the door of high end. My decision to choose Marantz was made when my scorecard showed the competing models were not good enough in (1) looks (2) touch (3) features and (4) sound. And few amplifiers have a 3 year warranty.

Nice Little Integrated

DJ, Amazon
5 January 2012
  • Summary: I have never owned an integrated before, having used either receivers or multi channel separates throughout my audio listening experience. I was struggling with the stereo sound from my latest receiver, a Marantz 6005. Don't get me wrong, the receiver excels at home theater and multichannel music, but I have owned some decent equipment and could tell that 2 channel listening was just lacking a little something.

One of the best $1,000 Integrated Amp.

Nossy "Nossy", Amazon
28 December 2011
  • Summary: For comparison sake, I demoed a NAD 356BEE, Rotel RA-1520, and the PM8004 with a pair of KEF Q300 and B&W685. The NAD appears to be $200 cheaper than the Rotel and Marantz, but it does not include a phono pre-amp stage, which cost an extra $200. So if you add that MDC module, it would cost the same as the Rotel and Marantz, which both of those amp include a phono preamp stage. The MDC slot does give you the flexibility of adding a DAC or phono.
