Inspired by the already legendary SC-7/MA-9 combination and derived from the top class PM-11S1 we are proud to present the new Marantz PM-15S1. Coupling impressive design with outstanding performance we feel our engineers have created a worthy successor to the PM-17. The amplifier is built according to the new Marantz premium design without any visible screws, a heavy double layer chassis and a slightly blue illuminated front. The 3-stage construction with full Current Feedback and with short, symmetrical signal paths, independent left and right heatsinks, and new HDAM(R) (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module)-SA2's ensure dynamic sound and perfect stereo imaging. Shortest signal path, best components, reduction of external noise and other will further extend the quality. Derived from the PM-11S1 we are using the electronic linear volume control WM8816 from Wolfson. The PM-15S1 reflects our engineers' passion for pure music, designed with the true audiophile in mind.
