Founded by Saul Marantz in 1953, his namesake company has been providing cutting edge audio technology for 60 years. The Marantz Reference line pays homage to the company's innovation and attention to detail through the years, while still providing the utmost in quality sound production.
At the beginning, Marantz was not much more than a small studio churning out the latest and greatest in audio technology. Producing the highest quality electronics for audio applications became the standard for the Marantz brand. Almost 25 years ago, they moved into video applications with their laserdisc player, and continued the video front with THX certified amplifiers and receivers.
Today, the Marantz Reference Series represents the highest prestige of a brand still at the forefront of sound production. These products exhibit superior craftsmanship and replicate sound output as if you were in the recording room. The dynamics, pitch, scale, and timbre are all perfectly matched to provide you with what may seem like the soul of the audio itself.
