The Marantz PM6006 Amplifier forms the perfect heart of any high quality music system. An integrated amplifier with powerful 45 watts per channel even includes a built-in digital to analogue converter (DAC) with a coaxial socket and two optical connectors. This allows you to connect a television or any other device with a direct digital output and enjoy fantastic sound quality through your hi-fi system. There is also a phono stage so you can connect a turntable with a moving magnet cartridge and continue to enjoy your vinyl collection.
The PM6006 amp's design has high quality audio as its priority. The electronics use discrete pre and power amp components and a metal housing around the digital stage to ensure the analogue output is as pure as possible. Similarly, the tone controls can be by-passed to create the shortest, purest signal path.
Two pairs of gold plated speaker terminals mean you can switch between two pairs of speakers placed in different rooms but also have the option to bi-wire a single pair of speakers for the best possible performance.
The result is an amazingly spacious and detailed, yet smooth and balanced sound with a generous sense of scale.

||What HiFi 5 Stars
"Smooth, suave temperament and even-tempered balance." "The 6006's presentation is notably cleaner and clearer – more solid too particularly through the midrange." "Another solid go-to for someone nailing down their first hi-fi system."
