This excellent entry-level integrated amp breaks all the rules. That’s because it’s the first in its class to offer current feedback architecture – a feature that until now has been exclusive to the much more expensive models. This technology provides very fast and accurate signal handling which results in perfectly balanced stereo sound reproduction and a very open and precise sound stage. Offering 40W per channel into 8 ohm or 55W into 4 ohm, this amp includes a metal chassis and front metal panel to ensure a very rigid and solid base. It also offers customised components for sound tuning, a phono MM equaliser, as well as Source Direct functionality to ensure shortest signal paths. Without doubt, the PM5004 has raised the performance bar in the so-called entry level area. Great sound. Amazing versatility.
Power cord (Cord length: Approx. 1.8 m)
Remote control (RC003PM)

The sound is incredibly clear and spacious, a bit clinical compared to my Cambridge Audio amp but handles fast music such as d&b a lot better and everything sounds a lot better separated, can really hear an improvement in the treble if not as warm down the bottom end. It's ten times better sounding than the old Sony amp it's replacing, not that hard though.
Seems well built, maybe not as bomb proof as my Cambridge Audio amp, but then not many amps at this price point are. Plenty sturdy enough to sit in my living room though and it certainly looks the part, proper smart looking bit of kit.
I tried using the loudness button but tbh it doesn't need it if you're listening at decent volumes (loud). Might use it at lower volumes, just sounds messy if it's anything over a quarter up though. The tone pots don't need touching either if the source you're listening to is decent. Probably gonna leave it on source direct as it sounds fine as it is.
Really impressed, now to justify getting the matching CD player unit.
I am sad to write that this once great brand appears to have fallen very far from the Marantz of old. It is cheap looking, cheaply made and sounds cheap. Of course I should have known better as it was ....cheap. Those blu neon lights that flash across the front are things from the late 80's when kids wanted all dazzle but no real substance. Gosh they look cheap and nasty. The sound is only OKAY and why this amp is so large I have no idea? It truly is a massive amplifier. The remote is also very cheap looking and feels cheap.
I am disappointed with Marantz but considering the cost I guess I should have expected it to be below par for such a brand. I recall Pioneer when they used to be the best to come from japan. Pioneer went the wrong road and started to produce in the 70's junk 'hi-fi'. It has taken Pioneer years to regain some of there past glory. I hope Marantz isn't going to make the same mistake? This truly is a low cost low performance amplifier not worthy of such a reputable brand with such a history behind it. Sign of the times? In hindsiight I should have bought the Denon.Read more ›
I have this set up with the wharfedale diamond 9.1s and the project elemental and it is amazing, just put the faith back into analogue, so much so that I have also just purchased an Nakamichi tape deck. Here's to loving all things old, but with a modern twist!!!!
