Extraordinary sensitivity: Designed to replicate the sensitivity and feel of a vintage analogue amplifier even when simply adjusting the volume.
The Most Musical, Accurate, Detailed Sound
MODEL 30 is built on its own discrete circuit board, the Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Module, or HDAM. By custom-curating hundreds of individual parts, rather than adopting an off-the-shelf solution, the MODEL 30 HDAM significantly outperforms standard integrated circuits to create the unique musicality you always expect from Marantz.
Switching Power Amplifications
MODEL 30 maintains the purest possible sound and supports the power needed to drive the most demanding speakers. The amplifier output stage of MODEL 30 allows a large power output, delivering 2x100W into an 8ohms load, and easily copes with low impedance speakers thanks to a 2x200W output into 4ohms. Because the feedback is taken after the output filter coil in this switching amplification design, the output frequency response stays the same and is not influenced by the impedance of the connected loudspeaker, ensuring the most musical sound no matter the loudspeakers. The amplifier module connects directly to the rear panel PCB on MODEL 30 to minimize the output path to maintain signal purity and sound stability.
Multiple Analogue Inputs and Outputs
In addition to phono and CD analogue inputs, MODEL 30 features two line-level inputs and one pair of recorder input/output jacks that enable the connection of multiple sources and recorders. Use MODEL 30 as a standalone stereo power amplifier for additional system configuration versatility with the included power amp direct input. For example, use the front pre-outs of your AV setup and run them through MODEL 30 power amps.
Marantz Musical Premium Phono EQ
Envisioned to deliver optimal sound quality by simplifying the signal path – vital given the delicate nature of phono signals – the Phono EQ stage in MODEL 30 can be used with both moving magnet and low-output moving coil cartridges, thanks to a built-in MC head amplifier.
The design lowers distortion, which is why the phono stage uses two-stage amplification, combining Marantz HDAMs with JFETs in the input stage, giving high input impedance. This allows the non-negative-feedback design to be further simplified by the deletion of coupling capacitors, again reducing distortion and enhancing signal purity.
MC / MM phono input impedance selector
In order to optimize sound performance when using a moving coil (MC) or magnetic moving (MM) cartridge, and to accommodate all configurations as much as possible, MODEL 30 is equipped with an input impedance selector.
