  • Denon AVRX3600H Surround Receiver with nine channels and multizone

    This is the springtime release of this new Denon range and the 3600 has significant upgrades. So its now a full nine channel unit with 7.2.4 onboard processing that can fully decode an Atmos system.The Denon range has been our long time companion since we began in 1990 and is utterly dependable.

     This newest range has an upgraded output stage with higher current on demand and improved damping factor that is intended to offer more snap and attack to the already class leading tone neutral presentation that characterises the sound of the Denon surround amplification.

  • Marantx SR5013 7.2 Channel Atmos Receiver

    So this is in the sweet spot of value vs performance. Other products are cheaper and sound just awful when you actually play something through them. Then there are many that are much more expensive that have facilities that you will never use and amplifier designs that although claiming more power simply don't subjectively perform as well as this does.

    With a current go price of $1500 the SR5013 ticks a lot of boxes with classic Marantz slightly retro looks but full on 4K Atmos Multi Zone Audio Streaming facilities.

    You can set this up like your Great Uncle's Sixties stereo amp and just use the volume and input selector knobs to play records ... or you can run it from its App control and use its Audysys Eq to room correct your 7.2 UHDR Cinema system.

    This is a particular favourite at Carlton Audio Visual

  • Marantz AV8802A Dolby Atmos Surround preamplifier with MM8077 Power Amplifier

    It's a terrible thing to have a high end single box surround receiver that becomes outdated due to changes in HDMI and audio codecs so that you basically throw away the whole thing. Ofeten that means discarding a perfectly good multichannel receiver that could still power speakers effectively due to enforced wiring protocol developments turning what was five years ago your pride and joy into 15KG of consumer electronic waste looking for a cosy grave in Northern Suburban landfill ...

    Then you buy the replacement model from the same brand and you discover that while it ticks all the feature boxes with bluetooth, wi-fi, dlna. snaggle waggle ... unfortunately it dosn't sound as good with music and dynamic theatre as the model youv'e just discarded.

    So the first reason you buy a Surround pre and Power combination like this one is to get off the aforesaid Hamster wheel of Built In Obsolescence and waste.

    The second reason is that it sounds fantastic.

    Home Theatre Review on the 8802 and 8077

    When you graduate to a pre and power amplifier like this you have the best of both worlds. The very sensitive low noise circuitry of the preamplifier and processor is separated from the high current demand of the power amplifier and is able to do its job of recovering all the residucal fine detail of the signal to the best possible degree.

    Meanwhile the power amplifier can be freed from the needs of the delcate touch and liberated with massive current reserves able to grip and modulate the reactive load of the loudspeaker drivers with unmitigated force to comply with the complex demands of the sinal produced from the preamplifier stage.

  • Marantz CD6006 CD Player

    It is argued that CD Players are now in danger of extinction, as Streamimg devices like the Heos Link take the sale away from new consumer entrants into the home audio market.

    However we keep on selling good CD Players to people of discernment who can tell the difference between an erratic internet stream and the truth of a prized recording. Plus there are those people with large established collections of discs looking to optimize their enjoyment of the playback.

    The CD6006 is here to make up the yards for those who might have thought CD was a Jurassic format. It is an excellent performer.

  • Marantz PM14 Special Edition Amplifier ... an engine block of life for your Hi-Fi system

    This piece of art has been incredibly well received since we unpacked it sometime ago. A true heavyweight integrated without the highend pricetag, We have the Gold unit on display and its finish is just superlative.

    The PM14S1 SE is a nominally 90 Watt integrated amplifier with tone controls and a source direct button to bypass them with. It’s not over endowed with inputs but three line plus two tape loops should be enough for most, and there’s a really decent MM/MC phono stage as well. The "power amp direct input" will come in handy should one fancy a preamplifier upgrade in future and pre out for the opposite scenario. Given that the preamp is generally  the weakest link in most integrateds the former is a good idea.

    There is also a dedicated headphone output on the front with its own HDAM output module that claims to be capable of driving low impedance headphones. Construction is substantial just like the matching SA14 player/DAC, with thick aluminium on most surfaces and generational transcending build quality.

    The technology within is the contemporary high end transistorised norm based around discrete high current stages with segregated circuitry for each channel, where this amplifier differs is that the Marantz main man Guru Ken Ishiwata has individually graced each passive component in the amplfication chain with carefully auditioned selection ... this and the ultra premium 10 series may be the last of Marantz Hi Fi to be so graced ...

    Come in for an audition.

  • Marantz SA14 Special Edition CD Player ... a piece of compact disc player gold for your living room

    We find that for these people who often have very advanced CD collections this Marantz piece of hewn metal is one the "most likely to succeed".

  • Marantz PM6006 Amplifier ... stereo cleanliness

    We love amplifiers, they are as important to Hi-Fi and music reproduction as engines are to cars and going fast ...

    The PM6006 is classic Ishiwata Marantz at a very reasonable price with superb digital inputs and phono stage.

    Come and try it through a pair of Krix Acoustix MKII loudspeakers and hear the real thing ... it's smoother and cleaner than its fine predecessor the 6005.

    "What Hi-Fi?" love it too ...

  • Marantz SR6013 Home Theatre Receiver ... musicality included

    This is the first Imax certified product that we have been able to sell. Like the THX specification this is a standard of very high performance audio and video that a product must pass to qualify for.

    The Marantz SR6013 is also one of our favourite devices for combining musicality with a comprehensive set of Cinema features. The DNM designers have done a really good job on the output stage. It has a phono input and is intended to be properly assayed by critical consumers through good quality loudspeakers rather than sold as an unopened box.

  • Marantz PM10 Amplifier... an expression of engineering perfection

    I absolutely loved the Marantz ads from the 1980's ... here was a brand that was head and shoulders above the mainstream brands such as Technics and Pioneer in sound quality and engineering that was being marketed with quite uncommon flair.

    The Marantz "hear no evil" advert and the magazine placements is a steadfast of practise in small ads for our industry.

     

     

    These two stereo components are amongst the finest that have ever been made by this company. they are constructed under the severe tutelage of Ken Ishiwata, an original disciple of Saul Marantz, who still appears at the Munich hi fi show and has accasionally graced the small places of Carlton Audio Visual.

    These are not inexpensive components, but you would only be destined to purchase them once in your life ....

  • Marantz SR7012 Wolf in retro clothing Home Cinema Receiver

    So there is a very distinct case for why you would purchase a Marantz SR7012. At a bit over $4000 it is one of the more expensive Theatre Receivers a customer is likely to buy in Australia. 

    However unlike so many of its other market place competitors this amplifier has been designed for music as well as movies. They have built into the rather massive chassis a very load tolerant output stage with genuine class when it comes to that audition with a testing piece of music or video through possibly contrary loudspeakers.

    In order to be able to produce good music an amplifier must be able to force the drive units to comply with the complex modulations of the signal. Most surround amplifiers quote an arbitrary power output without any parameters and when presented with a real world reactive impedance load of a serious high quality speaker they simply lack the amperage required to drive a complex load cleanly.

    You hear this as poor bass definition and the soundstage tied inexorably to the speaker cabinets rather than projected into the room.

    The Marantz SR7012 will drive real world speakers with impunity and intrinsic musicality. We have purveyed these Receivers with Ambience Ribbon speakers and Dynaudios that would crush a conventional surround amplifier.

  • The Marantz SR8012 Home Theatre Receiver .... the mammoth at the top of the class with Voice Control

    Once upon a time you knew someone had it made in their stereo system if they had a Chatsworth California manufactured Marantz Receiver in their system These devices were the top of their food chain without any compromise in quality and facilities.

    The SR8012 puts the tits on the bull. Marantz have raised their flag over this unit.

    The internals of the 8012 are a wet dream for audio engineering freaks and are designed to be the best cinema decoding and musicality available in a single chassis cinema amplifier.

    There can be only one.
