Marantz creates the Streaming-Amp

With the PM7000N, Marantz is building a golden bridge for die-hard analog fans into the streaming age. It is a classic integrated amplifier with a network player that can be switched off.

For 1200 Euro the device offers all ingredients of a typical Marantz amplifier: HDMA circuit, toroidal transformer, phono-MM preamplifier, 3 line inputs, a power amplifier with 2x 60 Watt at 8 Ohm and high-quality loudspeaker terminals made of solid brass with thick nickel plating. In addition, there are one coaxial and two optical digital inputs as well as a USB-A port for external storage units. Marantz has, further, for the first time integrated a streaming module into an integrated amplifier. Thanks to HEOS Built-in it can access Amazon Music (HD), Spotify, Tidal, Deezer and local music libraries – of course in HiRes up to 24 Bit/192 kHz (PCM) and 5.6 MHz (DSD). WLAN, Airplay 2 and Bluetooth are also on board. So that the digital modules cannot cause any interference signals in pure analog mode, they are not only completely shielded, but can also be switched off individually or as a whole in "Pure Mode". The PM7000N is operated via the included remote control, via the HEOS app or via Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri voice commands. It will be on the market in mid-November.
