The Marantz PM5005 is a stereo amplifier with a power of 40 watts per channel. At the back of the design, you can find a phono input. That means you don't need a separate preamplifier to connect a turntable. You can connect other AV devices, such as a CD player, via the 6 analog RCA inputs. The amplifier has 'current feedback architecture'. This technology provides fast and accurate signal processing. This means you can listen to an precise and balanced stereo sound. The remote can control all functions. You don't have to get out of your chair to adjust the volume or select a source.
