Marantz Model 30 Integrated Amplifier

The Model 30 Integrated amp is a design like no other. Rather than integrate an amp and preamp, the Marantz approach literally creates one unit from two separate components inside the “box”. There is even a totally separate power supply for the preamp which sits in the middle and another for the power amp section.

Description

Marantz has enjoyed prominence in the world of HiFi since the 1950’s. Saul Marantz, the founder and designer, and a talented team of engineers, have always sought to blend sound quality, functionality, and value across all of the products they produced.

Marantz has just introduced a new integrated amplifier, the Model 30, along with a coordinating SACD network player. Both offer a modern appearance featuring a carbon fiber look on the backlit faceplate but also maintain the classic look Marantz has been known by, supplemented with a OLED porthole display.

These new models are limited editions, as the final assembly is done entirely by hand.

The Model 30 Integrated amp is a design like no other. Rather than integrate an amp and preamp, the Marantz approach literally creates one unit from two separate components inside the “box”. There is even a totally separate power supply for the preamp which sits in the middle and another for the power amp section.

This design approach allows the unit to have the performance benefits of separate components, with the preamp board on the far right side, the separate phono preamp board underneath it, and a large toroidal power transformer in the center of the unit. The latter amp is totally dedicated to the preamp boards.

The power supply for the amplifier can be found on the far left with the actual amp section connected to the speaker terminals in the center rear. This design provides very short signal paths in each section. Other features include:

  • The Model 30 is completely analog- there are no digital circuits inside.
  • There is an on-board phono preamp, allowing for moving coil or moving magnet cartridge use. The phono stage even has it’s own circuit board.
  • Large, heavy, brass machined gold plated connectors are used.
  • There is also preamp out and a power amp in capabilities
  • Use headphones? There is a dedicated, high-quality headphone amp with circuitry to shut down the power amp when you plug in.
  • Classic separate Bass, Treble, Mid, Balance controls have been retained.
  • Tuned by the Marantz “sound master” to provide the warm, classic sound that Marantz is know for.
  • Rated Output: 100W + 100W (8ohm) – 200 W + 200W (4ohm)
    0.005% total harmonic distortion

    The Marantz Model 30 offers a strong value providing exceptional sound quality along with many advanced features. There are two color options: Silver/Gold or black.
