Marantz PM6005 w/ Wharfedale Diamond 220 Speakers
Marantz PM6005 Intergrated Amplifier
The PM6005 is more than an upgraded successor to the multi-awardwinning PM6004. Much more. Because now you can connect this superb integrated amplifier directly to a vast range of digital sources and use its superior DAC to create an unbelievably high level of audio enjoyment with new media. Of course, we have retained the pre-amp and power-amp sections that exclusively feature discrete components – not a single IC in sight of the signal path. That’s because specially selected single components not only outperform ICs in quality, they also make it possible to refine the sound in much more detail, resulting in more clarity and transparency.
And of course we have retained the lower impedance shielded Toroidal transformer, as well as the customized main capacitors. And of course all of the original features - such as five-line audio input including phono, two-pairs of gold-plated speaker connections with the convenience of bi-wiring, and a remote handset - are all still there. But now, the unit includes optical and coaxial digital inputs. The DAC is the 24bit/192kHz high current CS4398, which is already proven in many Premium Range products. And the complete digital section is fully shielded by an extra metal housing to ensure that the digital stage has no effect on the analogue signal. In short, the new PM6005 is your proven and excellent bridge to the future.
Wharfedale Diamond 220 Speakers
The Diamond 220 from Wharfedale replaces the company's 121 as the Diamond series' entry-level bookshelf model. This newly developed version of what was already a highly capable loudspeaker sees a number of aesthetic and performance upgrades.
These upgrades include the integration of a stronger and more anti-resonant cabiner mateiral, utilising particleboard sandwiched between MDF (as opposed to chipboard + MDF found with the older 121's cabinet). This means that the vinyl wrap of the speaker unit can be applied to the speaker more easily, resulting in an improved finish.
The bass driver is formed from woven Kevlar and has ribs for added rigidity and the speaker uses a revised magnet system for even tighter control of the sound. Vocals sound more realistic than you'd believe for a speaker of this price and the bass is upbeat and never lagging behind the rest of the mix. At the other end of the scale the treble unit is surrounded by a deeply dished waveguide. This helps to improve the imaging and 'width' of sound, making it easier to pick out individual instruments. The overall sound quality is still fantastically well-balanced and natural with a sense of realism that is difficult to beat at this price point.
The sonic integrity and capability of the speaker has also been improved, thanks to an upgraded crossover network and bass motor system, while the new slot-loaded port provides an even stronger level of sonic detail.
