Integrated amplifiers are the best choice for anyone looking for superb performance without the complexity or cost of a comparable receiver or preamplifier/power amplifier combination. Their minimalist design (no tuner, no fancy processing) means that the engineering team concentrates on the essentials that directly contribute to better sound. So, depending on your point of view, you either get a lot more than you paid for or spent a lot less than you thought you would. That sounds like a "win-win" situation to us. And the PM5004 will sound even better to you.
Current Feedback Amplifier
The PM5004 features current feedback design. This extraordinary circuit accurately tracks quickly changing, wide bandwidth musical signals for greater resolution of fine musical detail. The amplifiers themselves are custom-designed entirely with discrete components so you don't suffer any of the built-in limitations of off-the-shelf integrated circuits.
A Variety of High Quality Connections
Attention to detail is the order of the day: each of the five line level inputs and the phono input feed a buffer circuit that minimizes any interaction between the source and the PM5004, and there's a Source Direct switch so you can bypass tone and balance controls for the shortest signal path from input to output. Want to record your favorite sources? Just connect the recording device of your choice to the Record Out jacks and begin! Connecting speakers is easy, too. New Marantz-designed loudspeaker terminals are easy to use and let you see if there are any problems with your wiring.
For the ultimate in custom install flexibility, three built-in remote control command sets enable as many as three PM5004s to be used in a single system. A separate IR flasher input and detachable AC cord allow easy placement in a cabinet or rack, too. A hand held remote control is included.
So, from the composite aluminum/composite front panel to the new speaker terminals, this amplifier fulfills the needs of any music lover whose room isn't quite as big as the sports stadium down the road. And it's a Marantz – your assurance of the best sound around.

After the marvelous CD5004 cd-player with a perhaps incomparable quality price ratio, Marantz makes a new performance with the alter ego dedicated to amplification. And more - the MM phono input makes the product complete and attractive. Most of the circuits are discrete components. Tone tuning can get round with the “Direct Source mode “ for a better transparency. The connectivity is complete with five line outputs and 2 records outputs. We’ll note the dual speaker terminals which allows you to connect two pair of speakers. The impression of transparency and freshness is charming us. The aspect off darkness or sterile of the old models has completely disappeared, in favor of a clean sound - spontaneous. The spectral balance is homogeneous. Tones are well negotiated particularly if we consider the price…… In brief all that is contribute to the emotional dimension is miraculously preserved. There is no other integrated amplifier at that price! Positive points : very big clarity, infallible musical sense Negative points : none

Current Feedback amplification is a well known, Marantz’ original circuit technology. The Current Feedback amplifier technology fits perfectly with the high requirements set for Super Audio software providing wide-bandwidth, high-speed reproduction. The impedance at the Current Feedback point is limited resulting in a very low phase shift. Marantz receivers and amplifiers equipped with Current Feedback can keep the phase compensation via Negative FeedBack (NFB) to a minimum, resulting in high through-rate, excellent transient response and superb sonic transparency for the full bandwidth. Unlike conventional Voltage Feedback amplification, the Current Feedback amplification makes the power amplifier in-sensitive to difficult loudspeaker loads.
Marantz products all carry the environmental logo. This logo proves the environmental way of thinking within Marantz. This does not stop with the low power consumption of all Marantz products in stand-by modus, but it also underlines the environmental way of working and producing within Marantz and the use of environmental approved components that do not contain hazardous chemical elements. As much as possible will be done to stress the environment as less as possibly can.
Pure / Source Direct / Audio EX(clusive)
Pure / Source Direct / Audio EX are special listening modes that provide the highest possible signal purity. They can be used for both analogue and digital sources, with two-channel or multi-channel inputs. When selected, the signal follows the most direct path not passing the tone and bass management circuitry or any DSP (digital signal processor) of AV Receiver or on players pitch control, digital output or the display will be switched off. The less processing and functionalities the closer the signal is to the original, the less it is distorted.
