Released May, 2010
The Pros:Audio comes through in full detail, with true reproduction as the original recording intended. Highs are natural and clear, not overly crisp and detached. Bass is full and deep, never boomy.
The Cons:Very expensive for a mid range stereo amplifier.
The Marantz PM5004 is a mid-range stereo amplifier, released in 2010. This product is aimed at those looking for an amp with features providing quality sound reproduction. The Source Direct setting on the PM5004 bypasses all tone controls normally applied by the amplifier, producing unaltered audio from source.

Physically, the PM5004 is styled to match other Marantz products with its aluminum/glass-reinforced resin front panel. A total of 5 line-level inputs can be found on the back of the unit, while 2 record outputs are available for speaker connections. To increase sound quality, the phono input feeds a buffered circuit, meaning interaction between the source material and the amp is minimized. Also included is separate IR flasher input and a detachable AC cord, allowing owners to place the Marantz PM5004 in tight fitting spots.
