Marantz Model 40 Streaming System
"Marantz’s rich history contains many landmark amplifiers, and the Model 40n ties perfectly into that heritage. Yes, it’s gorgeous to look at in either black or silver gold finish, but more appealing still is how it fuses the brand’s performance-first ethos with a dizzying range of features. Stream digital music via the HEOS platform, connect a turntable to the MM phono input, or lace up a TV through HDMI ARC – the Model 40n is equally at home playing your analog or digital music collection as taking TV and movie entertainment to new heights. Anyone seeking a modern, do-it-all integrated amplifier with superb sound will find it here" EISA award 2022

Apple Music is also catered for with AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth support are also included—plus, playback of your own PC music file collection via USB-A input or on compatible home servers.

Be amazed. Wave launch is incredibly fast. The pluck of a guitar, the tap on a cymbal is aided by the driver assembly that uses the C3 Continuous Curved Cone™. The cone’s geometry requires good motor strength for optimal performance. Substantial magnets are coupled to large voice coils to increase motor strengtht. The high-frequency driver is completely hermetically sealed and mechanically isolated (i.e. floating) from the front baffle, which should help prevent interference from the mid/bass driver. Lastly, the crossover design is mounted on an isolation base to minimise vibration interference. The result - incredible composure, an ability to keep instruments separate even on complex passages.
