Marantz PM6006 Integrated Amplifier:
LENC's Marantz PM6006 Integrated Amplifier Review:
With a focus on smooth delivery and accentuation on the mid-range (vocals, strings, guitars etc.), the Marantz PM6006 will give you hours of listening pleasure, with no fatigue.
I'd call it your 'every-day all-day' amplifier for building a system that conveys the artist's intention and emotion, with no harshness or 'burn-out'. Arguably one of the finest sounding and most refined amps in its price range.

The Marantz PM6006 Integrated Amplifier is the upgraded successor of the multi-award-winning and widely-regarded PM6005. Of course, they have 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.
Furthermore, the unit includes now 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 of course 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.
