- PM6006 - Integrated Amplifier With Digital Input
PM6006 is an upgraded successor of the multi-award-winning PM6005. We've
retained the pre-amp and power-amp sections that exclusively feature discrete
components - not a single IC in sight of the signal path. The PM6006 is
upgraded for peak current at the amplifier stage, which makes it possible to
refine the sound for you in much more detail. You can connect this superb
integrated amplifier directly to a vast range of digital sources and use its
superior 24bit/192kHz high current CS4398 DAC to create an unbelievably high
level of audio enjoyment with new media. The unit now includes 2 optical and
1 coaxial digital inputs (an additional optical input from the predecessor,
PM6005), and the complete digital section is fully shielded by an extra metal
housing to ensure that the digital stage has no effect on the analog signal.
All of the original features—such as five-line audio input including phono,
two-pairs of gold-plated speaker connections with the convenience of
bi-wiring, and a remote handset—are all still there. The lower impedance
shielded Toroidal transformer, as well as customized components and unique
Marantz HDAM modules care for powerful, dynamic and detailed original Marantz
sound. In short, the new PM6006 is a new star with excellent genes.
developed its own discrete circuit boards to replace standard IC's. These
HDAM's consists of discrete surface mount components with short mirror image
L/R signal paths. Those devices are doing exactly the same thing as the Op-Amps,
but outperform the regular IC Op-amps dramatically in terms of the Slew Rate
and reduced noise level, resulting in a much more dynamic, accurate and
detailed sound. Over the years Marantz developed different types of the HDAM
to improve quality and to fit to the special requirements of a product
category like CD or amplifier.
Current Feedback amplifier technology provides wide-bandwidth and high-speed
sound reproduction. In combination with the Toroidal Transformer, the
PM6006's amplifier holds a massive energy reserve to drive even demanding
speakers with absolute ease.
Toroidal transformer has several advantages over a normal EI core
transformer. It is very efficient and therefore delivers more power compared
to the same size of an EI core transformer. In addition, due to its shape,
the electromagnetic radiation and the mechanical vibration are extremely low
all ending in a better sound quality.
Current Power Supply
power supply has high current high speed Shottky Barrier Diodes and high
current storage capacitors that together provide wide dynamic range along
with low impedance drive capability.
Quality D/A Conversion for Digital Input
PM6006 features high resolution D/A conversion and is equipped with the
reference class CS4398 D/A converter, which provides up to 192 kHz/24 bit
resolution for optimum fidelity with high resolution audio file types.
Connectivity for Digital Inputs (2 Optical, 1 Coax) with Hi-res Audio Support
Coax digital and 2 Optical digital inputs are now available to connect
digital devices and play back Hi-res Audio (up to 192kHz/24bit PCM) through
the PM6006's advanced audio circuitry. And the complete digital section is
fully shielded by an extra metal housing to ensure that the digital stage has
no effect on the analog signal.
