Beautifull vintage marantz pm-6a integrated amplifier. This integrated retailed for 160000 yens ($2000 us) when it came out in 1981, wich is the equivalent to $6000 in 2020 money. It runs in class A for the first 30 watts (see spec sheet) then 90 watts for a total of 120 watts per channel @ 8 ohm. In perfect sonic and nice physical condition.
This is the closest to a Luxman integrated 38fd lamp sound I have heard from a solid state integrated. A real delight. It is a japan domestic model. It will be shipped with a step down transformer (120v/100v) wich also protects this beautifull unit from electric spikes. Also included in the sale are 4 sorbathane (rubber) feet to isolate the Marantz wood body from external vibrations.
I have it matched with a pair of wonderfull JM Reynaud folia Jubile speakers I have also listed on Audiogon. In sound voices are very revealing. I never get tired of listening to classical music, violins, and opera on this integrated. Almost seems this Marantz was made to listen to La Callas arias :)
The sonic condition is a 10. Physical condition is good, except for a small scratch on the finish that can be seen on the upper right hand side of the wooden case and on the lower back of the same side of the wooden case. These are hardly visible. There is no other scratch, mark or any sign of fading of the letters on the champagne coloured faceplate. Please note there is no original box, manual, or extra cables.
Shipping with insurance and tracking is included in the price.
Features of the Marantz PM-6A include a MC head amplifier (13 transistors for each channel), phono amplifier (11 transistors for each channel), quarter A system, FET voltage amplifier and a speaker protection circuit.
