In Pursuit of The Most Musical Sound
Celebrating 70 Years of MarantzDISCOVER THE PURSUIT
Enjoy a fully discrete two-stage design amplifier with separate power supplies for the pre-amplifier and power amplifier for signal purity and exceptional audio quality, everytime.
Audio purity reimagined
Engineered and extensively tuned by a team, drawing on more than 65 years of Marantz amplifier design knowledge.
The team of Sound Masters located in Japan and Europe didn’t stop their intensive work until they were absolutely certain they reached the height of quality worthy of the Marantz name.
Built to leverage enhancements, maintain the purest possible sound and supply the power needed to drive the most demanding speakers.
Drawing on design elements of the PM-10, the PM-12SE is built to leverage enhancements, maintain the purest possible sound and supply the power needed to drive the most demanding speakers.
The amplifier output stage of the PM-KI Ruby allows a large power output, delivering 2x100W into an 8ohm load, and easily copes with high-impedance speakers thanks to a 2x200W output into 4ohms. The amplifier module connects directly to the rear panel PCB on the PM-KI Ruby to maintain signal purity and sound stability.
The result is a much more dynamic, accurate and detailed sound. Over the years, Marantz has developed different HDAM technology to fit the particular requirements of players and amplifiers. The PM-12SE uses the latest high-grade HDAM-SA3 technology, combined with optimized circuit design layout and carefully selected components, the PM-12SE ensures exceptional sound quality and performance.

Designed to deliver optimal sound quality by simplifying the signal path, the Marantz Musical Premium Phono EQ stage in the PM-12SE amplifier can be used with both moving magnet and low-output moving coil cartridges.
Distortion is reduced by using two-stage amplification in the phono stage, and Marantz’ HDAM is combined with JFETs (junction gate field effect transistors) in the input stage, giving high input impedance. The exclusion of coupling capacitors further simplifies the design, reducing signal distortion and enhances signal purity.
Newly developed electric volume control uses the latest volume control IC to realize better channel separation, dynamic range and distortion-reduction, while retaining the operational feel of an analog volume control device. The amplifier employs new Marantz-designed electric volume control for high linearity and best-in-class channel separation.
