PM6006 Integrated Amplifier
The PM6006 Integrated Amplifier with digital inputs replaces the multi-award-winning PM6005 with superior upgrades combined with favorite features. Marantz has retained the pre-amp and power-amp sections that exclusively feature discrete components – with no 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 in much more detail, resulting in more clarity and transparency. The Current Feedback amplifier technology provides wide-bandwidth and high-speed sound reproduction. In combination with the Toroidal Transformer, the PM6006 holds a massive energy reserve to drive even demanding speakers with absolute ease. And finally, the unique HDAM modules delivers powerful, dynamic, and detailed original Marantz sound.
From the back panel, even the most discerning audiophile can connect the PM6006 directly to a vast range of digital sources and use its superior 24bit/192kHz high current CS4398 DAC to create a high level of audio enjoyment with new media. Furthermore, 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 analogue signal. And building upon the best from its predecessor, all of the original features - such as five-line audio input including dedicated phono, two-pairs of gold-plated speaker connections with the convenience of bi-wiring, and a remote handset are still included, making this an excellent replacement to the PM6005.
The new CD6006 is a fine-tuned model with even more specially selected components and new layout circuit compared to its CD6005 predecessor. The oversized power supply feeds the digital and analogue circuitry of the player, where the high-quality CS4398 DAC converts digital signals to analogue. The signal is ‘pushed’ to the gold-plated cinch outputs by Marantz’s own small signal amplifier, the HDAM-SA2. For those who like portable music, it comes with iPod-digital connectivity. The CD6006 plays back MP3, WMA, WAV and AAC files from a connected USB storage device and directly plays back users iDevice music through its high quality D/A converters. One more thing: the CD6006 features a newly developed, complex headphone amplifier with Headphone amp gain setting for a wider range of headphones. To further eliminate vibration, more rigid feet were added to this model. And as an added convenience for those owning the stereo duo?, it shares the same remote control as the PM6006. Altogether, the CD6006 is perfect for music enthusiasts who want nothing but the best performance at an attractive price.
