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!!!!!

  • 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.

Marantz PM-8004

  • Excerpt: Sheesh! Most of these product reviews look like they are written by audio reviewers. I am just a long time audiophile with my own personnel views and opinions. Anybody who is really into audio knows that no two people are going to hear exactly the same thing from audio gear. There are however, acoustic similarities most of us can relate to. The point is, these are just my observations, some will agree, some will disagree. That is the bottom line.

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).

Wonderful Amp!

Sal R., Vanns
26 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Purchased the Marantz PM8004 intergrated Amp along with the SA8004 SACD player. I purchased these to go with my Klipschorn speakers. Many reviews said these would be a good amp for bright sounding speakers. They were correct, while not tube amps this combo rocks! I have space limitations and these fit perfectly in my cabinet due to their compact size.I already had a wonderful sounding Marantz amp but this amp is just at a different level. Very warm and detailed sound.

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.
