PM-17SA ver.2

This pre-main amplifier is based on the PM-17SA and uses Absolute SA Technology to improve the sound quality.

The basic configuration such as the preamplifier section with current feedback, adjustable HDAM which is a unique voltage amplification module of Marantz, and twin monaural construction has been inherited as it is, and high speed and low noise are achieved by thoroughly reviewing parts, power supply, and wiring.

The power supply section is newly equipped with a low-power foil power block Chemicon, and the transformer continues to be equipped with a super-ring core toroidal transformer.

We have introduced high-quality parts such as resistors, film capacitors, and Schottky barrier diodes in each rectifier circuit.

The power feed line and the GND bus bar, which are maintained in low impedance, have been completely reconsidered the ground potential to suppress potential fluctuations.

Built-in pre-out and power-in terminals.

Equipped with a source direct switch.

Equipped with a warm-up meter to check the heat-up condition.

Equipped with Full Rec Selector.

Equipped with MC/MM compatible phono amplifier.

The speaker terminal is made by WBT of Germany.

Aluminum top System remote controller is included.
