Fully Discrete Current Feedback Power Amplifier with HDAM-S3
Current Feedback amplification, a renowned Marantz-proprietary circuit technology, is thoughtfully designed to match the requirements of Super Audio hi-res music for wide-bandwidth, high-speed reproduction. The impedance at the Current Feedback point is limited, generating a very low phase shift. Marantz Current Feedback amplifiers reduce the need for phase compensation by minimizing Negative Feedback (NFB). This simplifies the signal path and results in a high through-rate, excellent transient response and superb sonic transparency across the full bandwidth. Unlike conventional Voltage Feedback topology, Current Feedback renders the power amplifier nearly immune to difficult loudspeaker loads.
Marantz HDAM-S3 Technology
Marantz developed its own discrete circuit boards called Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Modules, or HDAMs, to replace the chip-based amps used elsewhere. Using discrete surface mount components with short mirror-image left and right signal paths, HDAMs outperform the regular integrated Op-amps dramatically in Slew Rate and noise level. The result is much more dynamic, accurate and detailed sound. Over the years, Marantz developed different HDAMs to fit the particular requirements of each player and amplifier. The PM7000N uses the high-grade SA3 version.
High-Grade Sound Parts
Marantz has a steadfast reputation for choosing the best-possible components for its Hi-Fi products, and the PM7000N is built with that same performance-first Hi-Fi approach. Marantz engineers selected and optimized the PM7000N through extensive listening in dedicated Marantz facilities in Europe and Japan using Hi-Fi tuned sound parts.
A Toroidal transformer offers several advantages that derive from its efficiency and power capability. The shape of it lends to low levels of electromagnetic radiation and mechanical vibration, producing improved sound quality over what you might experience with dated transformer models.
Separate Power Supply for Stand-by
In order to reduce power consumption in stand-by, the PM7000N features dual separate power supply circuits. While in standby the digital SMPS power supply is active so the network can wake up the PM7000N. When switching to operation mode, the SMPS power is switch off and the toroidal transformer is activated to supply the necessary high-current to reproduce the Marantz sonic signature.
Redesigned Pre-Amplifier Circuit with HDAM
Newly developed electric volume control uses the latest volume control IC couple with Marantz HDAM to realize better channel separation, dynamic range, improved S/N ratio and distortion-reduction, while retaining the operational feel of an analog volume control device. The amplifier employs new Marantz-designed electric volume control for high linearity and best-in-class channel separation.
The PM7000N is equipped with three “Pure Modes,” alloying you to disable entire broadcasting audio blocks and prevent interference when listening to analog sources. Pure Modes can be individually switch offed between network & USB-A, Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth to provide the best musical experience.

Improved Integrated Phono Input
For a long time, Marantz integrated amplifiers have featured high-quality phono stages. The PM7000N remains faithful to that legacy while also introducing a new design — one that integrates a FET (field-effect transistors) in the input stage. This provides high input impedance, eliminates the need for AC coupling capacitors and simplifies the signal path, lowering distortion and noise vastly improving the signal purity overall.
Supports an optional external subwoofer with adjustable low pass crossover for low-frequency bass response within your listening environment. Enjoy accurate bass with no audible peaks or dips, no matter where you place your subwoofer.
High Quality, Original Marantz SPKT-1+ Speaker Terminals
The speaker terminals of the PM700N are made of dense brass with a thick silver plating to provide best possible contact with speaker cables.
Shielded Digital Circuit
To preserve the analog circuit from digital interferences or noise radiation, the digital circuit is installed into a shield case, preventing interference. The wireless digital boards can also be completely switched off independently using “Pure Modes” to avoid any interferences.
Source Direct Function
To ensure the shortest signal path and upmost fidelity, the PM7000N features Marantz Source Direct function, which bypasses the tone and balance control circuitry for a straight path, delivering elevated sound purity.
Connect your TV, Blu-ray, DVD Player and More
Connect your digital TV or cable/satellite set-top-box and a Blu-ray or DVD player to either of the three digital audio inputs (Optical 1 and 2, Coaxial 1) and enjoy full, dynamic range digital audio playback of your favorite movies and TV shows. All of the digital inputs can automatically wake the PM7000N when sensing an audio signal from the television, and your television remote control can be programmed to directly operate the master volume control, mute, power on/off and source selection of the PM7000N.
