Marantz, manufacturer of high-performance musical-sounding audio components, has introduced the MODEL 40n integrated amplifier.
This new model, says the Marantz, sets a new standard for outstanding sound quality while providing easy access to a vast library of digital music, podcasts and more. Featuring ‘exquisite’ design, the maker says the MODEL 40n has been engineered for those who appreciate excellence in craftsmanship and performance in all aspects of their lives. Marantz adds that the MODEL 40n is constructed from the finest materials, adding elegance and refinement to any room.
“I strongly believe you don’t have to be an audiophile to enjoy rich, warm sound,” says Joel Sietsema, Marantz president. “With our MODEL 40n we’ve further perfected the balance between what we’re known for – our sound – with added simplicity, gorgeous design, modern upgrades, and power. This product is truly ideal for those who require excellent performance yet find elegance in simplicity and ease of use.”
Extraordinarily Simple — Just Add Speakers
The Marantz MODEL 40n has been created to provide listeners with wonderfully rich and satisfying sound which is equal to or better than what audiophiles have sought after for years with stacks of complicated equipment. Such performance is now available in a single unit which can be connected to speakers of the listener’s choice. The machine provides access to Spotify Connect, Amazon Music, Tidal, TuneIn internet radio and many more. The MODEL 40n also provides access to personal file libraries, up to PCM 192kHz / 24 bit as well as DSD up to 5.6 MHz. Wireless connectivity options include Apple AirPlay 2, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi with HEOS Built-In.
Extensive Connectivity — HDMI, Phono, and More
The MODEL 40n offers a full complement of analogue and digital inputs to accommodate any source, including Marantz Musical Phono EQ—a moving magnet phono stage for vinyl playback. Unusually for products in this category, the MODEL 40n features an HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) input making audio playback from a TV possible. A dedicated subwoofer output with crossover adjustments enables users to optimise bass response for any listening room. Enthusiasts will enjoy all these options through powerful Marantz analogue amplification designed to deliver spacious, dynamic sound with high-levels of detail and clarity.
Streaming Together or Separate – Whole Home Audio
The MODEL 40n has been designed to work as the primary hub for one or multiple rooms. With HEOS Built-in technology, the entire family can enjoy their favorite music in any room for a wireless, whole-home experience. Play the same song in every room to create a festive mood or select different songs for each connected room by adding HEOS-capable speakers throughout the home. As smart as it is, it not only works for streaming services, but any input on the MODEL 40n including phono.
Featuring advanced Wi-Fi technology, the MODEL 40n facilitates wireless streaming via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth that is stable even in congested urban settings. For an intuitive user experience, the MODEL 40n comes with a remote control, and conveniently works with Siri, Alexa and Google voice command. Availability of the service may vary per country.
A new 70 watt per channel (8Ω) Class A/B amplifier stage has been developed that exceeds the performance of earlier models with similar power ratings. A larger power supply transformer, four output transistors per channel, heavy copper bus bars, and very short power pathways lower internal impedance and deliver high instant current capability making the MODEL 40n highly dynamic and an excellent match for even difficult to drive loudspeakers.
Expertly Engineered and Sound Master Tuned
For the MODEL 40n, Marantz Sound Masters used the finest components to maximize performance. The MODEL 40n leverages the company’s proprietary Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Modules (HDAMs) that deliver the most musical sound possible, says the maker, from precise bass transients to smooth, balanced midrange and high frequencies from any connected loudspeaker. Leveraging curated discrete surface mount components and the shortest possible signal paths, the HDAMs inside the MODEL 40n have been engineered to provide uncompromised listening pleasure.
Price and Availability
The Marantz MODEL 40n Integrated Amplifier will be available in two finishes: Marantz Black and Silver Gold. MSRP is €2,499, £2,199, $2,499 and is available from March 2022.
