MARANTZ PM6005 Black or White Stereo Amplifier - Richer Sounds - £239.95

Marantz is well recognized for HiFi audio. Check online for reviews of the brand and this amplifier. Highly respected amplifier that has been £299 for years. I posted it 6 months ago when it dropped to £249 for a short period, thread here: hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…235

Specs:
2x45w
10-70,000hz
DAC
Phono pre-amp
Two speaker outputs 4ohms+

I bought for £289 and happy with it. Built in DAC was the selling point along with high quality sound and decent built quality. Happy to answer questions if needed!

Black £239.95:

White £239.95:

Edit: For anyone new to HiFi audio - you need separate speakers and something like a CD or MP3 player to play sound into the amp.

marantz kit is always worth a listen. good quality and always good specs.

is 2 x 45w high enough for the average living room, seems quite low to me when a typical set of floor standers would state 30w to 150w input, cant leave much headroom.

I bought this a few weeks ago (as I wanted a USB DAC and amp in 1) it's 35WPC and does a good job of driving my B&W 602's, not that I intended to drive such large speakers with it, as it did such a good job with my Q Acoustics 2020's I thought lets give it more of a challenge. So given the Marantz has the extra 10W and is better quality overall, it should do the job fine.

Good HiFi amps give powerful sound output for long periods of time so the wattage is often not a good comparison between products. If you look at NAD amps for example, while the rated output is low they will sound far more powerful than cheaper amps. 2x45w from a Marantz amp will be enough for most situations however the room size and speaker sensitivity will dictate the perceived audible level.

For reference I am running Wharfedale 157 floorstanders with this and rarely use more than 20% of the volume control knob in a small sized room.
