Marantz PM8000 65,000yen(1999 release)

The Integrated Amplifier of C series which regazed at the thought and the technology also for the half century that the Marantz has followed, and put into practice the "first priority of the musical reproductivity" which is an original policy.

The pure Class-A operation is adopted. Moreover, the twin monophonic construction is adopted.

4-unit active volume is carried and the feeling of SN on Hearing impression is improved.

HDAM original with a Marantz is carried.

The Source-Direct switchpoint and the active-filter NFB type tone control circuit are carried.

Parts, such as a high-quality sound capacitor, are adopted.

The aluminum panel of hairline finish is adopted as the front panel at gold finish.

The system remote control which makes concurrent operation of Marantz products possible is attached.
