- PM7005 - 2 Channel Digital Integrated Amplifier with USB PCM & DSD
superb sound from your favorite analog and digital sources with the Marantz
PM7005 integrated stereo amplifier. Featuring a high current discrete power
output stage with current feedback (a Marantz innovation), the PM7005 is also
equipped with our exclusive HDAM technology, employing proprietary circuit
modules with discrete components that deliver ultra-wideband response and
fast slew rate. The versatile PM7005 features multiple analog and digital
inputs, including optical and coaxial digital inputs along with a USB-B 2.0
for direct connection to computer high resolution digital audio sources.
Featuring the reference-class CS4398 high resolution D/A converter, the
PM7005 can decode high resolution digital audio files up to 24 bits and 192
kHz sampling. It's also compatible with DSD 2.8 MHz and 5.6 MHz high
resolution files (the same system found on SACD), and the asynchronous USB-B
port also features jitter removal for the most pristine sound quality. There
are multiple analog inputs, including a MM phono input, along with dual
recording inputs and outputs, and the Source Direct function bypasses the
balance and tone controls for the shortest signal path, while the Analog mode
disables the digital circuitry when listening to analog sources.
Feedback Discrete Power Amplifier
of employing conventional voltage-based feedback in the power amp section,
the PM7005 features current feedback, a Marantz innovation that delivers
superb fidelity and lowest distortion. The amp section consists of all
discrete circuitry (no op-amps), and features high current discrete power
output devices that provide high instantaneous peak current capability, and
the PM7005 is rated at 60 watts per channel into 8 ohm loads and 80 watts per
channel into 4 ohm loads.
Range of Connectivity Options
PM7005 is equipped with numerous analog inputs, including dual recording
inputs and outputs, and features coaxial and optical digital inputs, along
with a USB-B 2.0 asynchronous input for high resolution computer audio files.
Digital-to-Analog Conversion with PCM and DSD Decoding
optimum decoding of high resolution audio tracks, the PM7005 features the
reference-class CS4398 D/A converter, which is also found on Marantz
reference disc players and amplifiers. The PM7005 can accept a broad range of
digital audio sampling frequencies and bit depths, all the way up to 24 bits
and 192 kHz sampling. In addition to decoding high resolution PCM tracks, the
PM7005 can also decode DSD high resolution audio files, at 2.8 and 5.6 MHz.
DSD is the advanced digital audio system found on SACD, and is often
preferred by critical listeners for its natural sound quality.
with dual master clocks for the digital-to-analog conversion function, the
PM7005 also features a fully-enclosed and shielded digital audio block to
prevent interference between the analog and digital audio sections.
Direct Function; Analog Amplifier Mode
Source Direct function bypasses unnecessary analog circuitry (the balance
control and the bass and treble controls) for the shortest and straightest
signal path. The Analog amplifier mode shuts down the entire digital audio
block, to prevent interference when listening to analog sources.
2.0 Asynchronous Port with Jitter Removal
the highest sound quality with computer audio sources, the PM7005 is equipped
with a USB-B 2.0 asynchronous port along with dedicated jitter removal
processing to provide the highest sound quality with high resolution digital
HDAM Discrete Buffer Amplifier Modules
PM7005 features our latest HDAM-SA3 (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module)
components, which consist of matched precision discrete selected circuit
elements on a compact sub-board, instead of conventional op-amp integrated
circuits. HDAM modules are used in the phono amp/equalizer block, the digital
audio block and in the power amplifier block. The latest generation Marantz
HDAM-SA3 modules provide a full 10 dB of signal-to-noise improvement over
earlier HDAM versions, along with ultra wide-band response (100 kHz, -3 dB)
for crystal clear treble detail.
Discrete Volume Amplifier Circuit
volume amplifier circuit features all-discrete circuit components (no op-amps
in the signal path) for the purest sound quality, lowest distortion and
widest frequency response.
Remote Control Options
with remote control input and output jacks, the PM7005 lets you connect via
your Marantz player and/or your Marantz network audio player so you can place
the amplifier in a cabinet out of sight and have it remotely controlled along
with the disc and network audio players with a single remote control, which
helps to reduce component clutter. The elegant remote control includes
dedicated buttons for a Marantz disc player and a Marantz network audio
