Prepare to be stunned by the new 351A integrated amplifier. Taking cues from the award-winning 651A amplifier, this slimline yet powerful beauty features an array of components and design principles rarely seen in mid-end systems, let alone entry-level hi-fi.
This new amplifier forms part of the next generation EVOLUTION 50 range of products. Housed in a slim case with engraved front panel and solid HiFi Choice Awardcontrol knobs, it’s finished in either black or silver brushed aluminium. An ingenious new push button design has been developed for it, offering excellent tactile feel and backlit optical indication of usable functions for optimum user-friendliness.
While the PM-15S2 Limited features luxurious, black anodized aluminum casework, the beauty of this extraordinary new component runs more than skin deep. Key design attributes, some first explored in the award winning MA-9S2 monoblock amplifier, lift the sonic integrity of the 15 to a level that belies its approachable price. HDAM-SA3 modules offer high slew rate and low noise operation and contribute to the highly resolved sonic character of the component. A custom-wound torroidal power transformer anchors a high current, regulated power supply that's been newly tuned for quick response. Twin 20,000 microfarad filter capacitors are custom made for Marantz and provide huge current reserves for enhanced bass control. A current feedback power amplifier delivers 90 watts per channel into 8 ohms and features a DC servo for superior low frequency response. Vinyl enthusiasts will appreciate the fast, sonically neutral qualities of the constant current feedback moving magnet phono stage, as well as the vivid imaging afforded by a digitally controlled analog volume stage that boasts channel to channel accuracy within .5 dB. HDAM-SA2 modules are deployed in a buffer configuration at the CD input for enhanced linearity. A Bi-Mode setting makes it possible to operate two PM-15S2 as mono-integrated amplifiers for total left-right channel isolation while a power amp direct input allows complete integration with a home theater processor at the touch of a button.
The high-quality components that proved such a success in the original KI Pearls are now used in this new amp. This helps ensure that it faithfully reproduces the music's dynamic structure, tonal quality and stereo image. This new Pearl has also been given a copper-plated chassis to help ensure the lowest possible impedance grounding.
This excellent entry-level integrated amp breaks all the rules. That's because it's the first in its class to offer current feedback architecture - a feature that until now has been exclusive to the much more expensive models.
When "What Hi-Fi Sound and Vision?" gave our PM6003 the "Best amplifier in its class" award, the performance bar was well and truly raised for its successor: the PM6004. Fortunately, Marantz design engineers enjoy nothing better than a real challenge. And they seized this upgrade opportunity to further improve this already excellent amplifier by refining the sound and optimising the balance from Bass to Mid to Highs for a performance full of harmony.
This full discrete current feedback integrated amplifier is perfect for audiophiles wanting both excellent music quality and flexible operation. It offers a powerful 2x 70W into 8 ohms, while the symmetrical circuits ensure perfect image balancing.
The Brio-R embodies all the necessary ingredients. Substantial toroidal transformer, generous power supply components, rugged output stage, the use of film capacitors in the signal path and at all critical positions within the phono amplifier.
For a quarter of a century, Rotel has led the way in the design of integrated amplifiers. The RA-06 is our new reference integrated amp, designed to drive its full, robust sound through even power-hungry speakers. You'll find its output is sufficient for all but the largest rooms and most demanding loudspeakers, and in those situations it can be bi-amped with an RB-06 power amplifier to create a fearsome double act. Also includes separate pre/power designs in a single chassis, symmetrical circuit board layout, short signal path routing, UK--designed metal film resistors, US-made super low-noise resistors, Rotel toroidal transformer and power supply, electronic speaker protection, and 12v trigger power control.
There is occasionally much to be said in favour of stripping back to the fundamentals and the RA-10 is definitely one of those occasions. The RA-10 offers 40 Watts per channel, four analogue line level inputs, a phono input and traditional integrated amplifier controls that will feel comfortable and intuitive to every user. The RA-10 is no lightweight however. It is a serious high performer that benefits from all our efforts dedicated towards optimising audio electronics for the reproduction of music. The RA-10 brings a clarity and effortless dynamism to music that belies both its modest ambitions and modest price.
The RA-11 carries a similar set of features to the RA-12 but is slightly less powerful at 40 Watts per channel and is constructed in a slimline enclosure. Just like the RA-12, every critical signal chain component is selected to ensure that music from the RA-11 is delivered with as much detail, dynamics, clarity and emotion as possible. The RA-11 incorporates the same high-end Wolfson WM8740 24 bit/192kHz DAC chip as the RA-12 and the same complement of five conventional analogue inputs, four S/PDIF digital inputs, and an Apple authorised USB input. The RA-11 can be controlled through either its front panel buttons, via a remote handset, or an RT-12 and the Rotel Remote app for iPhone and iPad.
The amplifier has always been the heart of a hi-fi system, but for the new audio landscape, amplifiers need ‘brains’. The brain of the RA-12 is the Wolfson WM8740 24 bit/192kHz DAC, most often found in high-end audio products, and it ensures that the RA-12 extracts the full potential from its digital and Apple® authorised USB inputs. Traditional audio is not forgotten however so the RA-12 also provides four analogue line-level inputs and a phono input. The RA-12 can be controlled from its front panel buttons, via a remote handset, or via an RT-12 and the Rotel Remote app for iPhone and iPad. The RA-12 is however not just about versatility, it is a very high performance 60 Watts per channel amplifier that puts music at the top of its priorities.
The RA-1520 is a music lover's amplifier and is most at home as part of a stand-alone stereo system. Its muscular 2 x 60 watt (into 8 ohms) design is based upon nearly 50 years of our expertise in analog audio engineering and it delivers all of the musical performance the artist intended. Subtle nuances and large dynamics are both rendered faithfully from uncompressed digital or analog sources. The RA-1520 includes a moving magnet phono input to accommodate your vinyl collection. To complete its functionality, as well as its superb performance capabilities, there are additional inputs for tuner, tape, CD and Aux.
Hybrid Stereo Integrated Amplifier. Vincent does it again. The German-based audio company demonstrates an insatiable love of music with the hybrid SV-226 integrated amplifier. Whether it’s the liquid glide of a classic Duke Ellington recording or hammering hip hop rhythms, the Vincent SV226 makes all of your tunes sound true to life. Inside and out, the build quality is unbeatable. Expensive MPK-capacitors and extremely precise metal film resistors in the signal path contribute to the sonic purity. The heavy duty chassis provides a stable platform for the premium electronics. The SV-226 includes inputs for five line level sources, a preamp output, and four pairs of heavy duty five-way speaker binding posts to facilitate biwiring. The tone controls let you sculpt the sound to suit your tastes and room acoustics, while a loudness switch helps preserve the dynamics of your music even at low amplitude levels.
