Marantz has announced a new PM6007 Integrated Amplifier ($599) and CD6007 CD Player ($449), both considered “entry-level” products and which boast performance-based features including the company’s current feedback amplification topology and “reference-quality” AK4490 DACs.
The PM6007 features a toroidal power transformer and delivers 45 watts per channel (8ohm, 20Hz-20kHz). The onboard current feedback amplifier tech with HDAM-SA3 circuitry provides wide bandwidth and dynamic range, according to Marantz. The integrated amp includes five analog inputs, one coaxial input and two optical digital inputs, as well as a moving magnet phono preamp and subwoofer output. As well as high-quality speaker terminals with A/B switching capability, the internal DAC is fully shielded, and copper assembly screws and rigid feet ensure durability.
The CD6007 CD Player carries an oversized, low-noise power supply with high-speed, high-current ‘Shottky Barrier’ diodes and 120 percent larger capacitors from previous models for better stability and reduced AC noise “even during the most demanding listening sessions.” The player also features a new “reference-quality” AK4490 DAC offering two selectable filter options. As well as 192-kHz/24-bit and DSD 5.6MHz resolution, hi-res files can be played from a USB drive, and CD-R/RW discs are supported along with all common music file types. Rigid feet and a double-layered bottom panel eliminate vibration from entering the internal mechanism of the player.
The Marantz PM6007 and CD6007 are available now in black or silver-gold. The link we were provided appears to be inactive, so we suggest keeping updated from the Marantz US home page.
