Like all high power amplifiers, this unit ideally needs at least two inches of free air space above it, in order to ventilate properly. If you intend to stack it vertically with another unit, it is always best to put the amp on top.
Unlike many competitors, this amp has a phono input for your turntable

This amp has the convenience of tone controls, but you can also switch them off using the 'Source Direct' button, for best sound quality

Marantz PM6006 amplifier
The best sounding 'budget audiophile' amp ever!

The Marantz 6000 series has dominated the world of budget separates for the last three decades and its latest 6006 incarnation is arguably the company's finest to date.

In these modern times, a 'purest' budget separates amp like the PM6006 will undoubtedly come under pressure from 'do-it-all' streaming models like Yamaha's R-N602. However, it's important to remember that streaming comes at the expense of sonic ability and the PM6006 sounds significantly better than any streaming amplifier at even double its price, let alone one at the price of the 602. Five minutes in our demonstration room will tell you that if you don't have an absolute definite 'can't live without it right now' requirement for streaming, then you should buy a PM6006, because it definitely sounds the best and anyway you can always add streaming on later via Denon's excellent HEOS link.

The best way to describe the PM6006, would be to call it a refinement of the outgoing, multi award winning PM6005. From the outside, the two models are pretty much identical, but if you look closely, you will see that the 6006 now sports one extra optical input and if you ‘lift the lid’ on the new model you will also see some subtle but significant circuitry changes, including the full metal shielding of the complete digital section to stop it interfering with the sensitive analogue circuitry. Other than that, it's 'business as usual', so the 6006 retains all the attributes that made the outgoing 6005 so popular. Sound quality is very good indeed for this price-point and build quality is excellent, too, with both the PM6006 and its matching CD player weighing over a stone! On top of that the 6006s are ultra-stylish, mirroring the looks of Marantz's £2000 Pearl Lite series. Wired connectivity is good, with a front iPod compatible USB port on the CD Player, plus six analogue audio inputs (including turntable), three digital audio inputs and twin gold-plated switchable speaker outlets. The 6006 sports a superb internal 24bit / 192kHz high current CS4398 DAC to fully exploit its digital inputs, so whatever you plug into this amp's optical or co-ax input (e.g. your TV / games console) will have its sound quality significantly improved.

Marantz has a long pedigree of producing superb budget separates and this is far and away their best 6000 series amp yet. For the last 30 years the world of budget separates has been something of a one horse race and it still is, because if you want absolutely the best sound quality your money can get you then you will buy a 6006 over anything else available on the market at this price-point. It is the best sounding budget audiophile amp ever – by a country mile !
