Product Specifications

Today, the distinctive voice of the original Marantz Model 9 monaural power amplifier is reborn in the MA-9S1. This work of art defines new horizons in both musical performance and contemporary elegance. It is an enduring testament to the synergy of today's advances in physics, electronic circuitry, and metallurgy guided by unwavering respect for the past. The first indication of this amplifier's true nature lies in its power rating: 300 watts into 8 ohms and 600 (yes, 600!) watts into 4. This "double down" capability speaks directly to the MA-9S1's current delivery prowess and, consequently, its ability to absolutely control any loudspeaker. The MA9S1's fully balanced topology (dual-mono construction in a monaural amplifier), choke-input power supply, massive transformer, and ultra-low impedance output make this a textbook example of meticulous engineering. Following the ideal of the original Model 9, this contemporary masterpiece redefines the art of audio amplification.
