The Marantz PM-11S3 Reference Series integrated amplifier’s interior is a thing of beauty.

You were there once. Maybe when you were young, and “stereo stores” were still common, you went in and stared at — the Marantz. It didn’t matter what it was — power amp, preamp, receiver — you just knew it sounded (and looked) great. Or perhaps amazing. And you wanted each and every product. But you were young and hungry, and Marantz wasn’t an option for you then.

Perhaps it’s an option now. The Marantz PM-11S3 Reference Series integrated amplifier hasn’t strayed from the traditions that have made Marantz one of the most respected names in all of consumer electronics. This component is a standard-setter. They call it “Reference Series” for a reason. Start with the concept of pure, uncolored sound, then uncompromisingly set out to achieve it with the best materials, under the guidance of the industry’s best innovators. Pay attention to what works. Only make refinements if they improve the sound. Don’t add features just because you can.

Integrated amplifier delivers flawless audio performance, Cutting-edge audio technologies ensure accurate sound reproduction, Phono, CD, and auxiliary ports for versatile connectivity, Supports multi-channel speaker systems, Remote control for easy volume and playback control

Exclusive HDAM Technology Delivers Exceptional Dynamic Range
Featuring separate phono and line level circuit boards, the PM-11S3 is equipped with our exclusive HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) technologies, which provide superior low noise wide band performance in an all-discrete configuration, compared to conventional op amp ICs. The PM-11S3 incorporates no less than 40 HDAM SA3 latest generation modules, which feature ultra fast slew rate for true wideband response and maximum dynamic range, including multiple HDAM SA3 modules in the phono stage.

 

Phono Input for Connections to Vinyl Record Players
The MM/MC phono section incorporates our latest Constant Current Feedback gain stage which features DC Servo equalization that eliminates the discontinuities in tonal balance caused by conventional RIAA equalization using ordinary dual band negative feedback topology, for the purest reproduction of your favorite vinyl recordings.

 

Robust Power Supply Supports Multiple Loudspeakers
Rated at 100 watts per channel into 8 ohms, the PM-11S3 features an extremely robust power supply and comparably rugged power amplifier output stages that together provide incredible low impedance drive capability, with a power output of 200 watts per channel into 4 ohms, easily able to drive virtually any audiophile loudspeaker with stability and utmost fidelity. The power supply features a massive 950 VA toroidal transformer wound with OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) for maximum headroom and operational stability, securely anchored to the chassis via its own solid metal sub-mounting plate which eliminates the possibility of transformer-induced vibrations. Instead of a conventional bridge rectifier, the PM-11S3 incorporates fast response, high current Shottky barrier diodes, which provide faster switching and lower voltage drop for a more pure DC output.

 

Versatile Connectivity
The front end of the PM-11S3 provides maximum control and configuration flexibility, as it can be configured as a conventional stereo integrated amplifier, or set up with another PM-11S3 as a dual component four channel configuration for bi-amp operation, and it can also be paired with an A/V surround processor/pre-amp and used as a stereo power amplifier for the main left and right speakers in a home theater system via the Power Amp Direct inputs. Line level inputs feature unbalanced (RCA) and fully balanced XLR options for maximum connection flexibility.

 

Intuitive Control Panel and Remote Control
Supplied with a newly designed remote control (which can also operate the matching Marantz Reference Series SA-11S3 SACD/CD player), the PM-11S3 features an all new digitally controlled analog volume control system, which provides the precision of tightly defined volume adjustment over the entire range with outstanding channel tracking (.5 dB) while keeping the audio information entirely in the analog domain.

Equipped with our distinctive Reference Series front panel design, the PM-11S3 features an improved contrast, ultra low noise LCD display that provides information including volume level, channel balance, bass and treble control levels, selected source as well as attenuation level, which can be user-set for -20 dB, -40 dB or full mute.

 

Rugged, Durable Construction
Weighing in at just under 59 pounds, the PM-11S3 features a new chassis design with beautiful casework that includes a new 5mm thick solid aluminum top panel for maximum chassis rigidity that allows additional components to be stacked on top. The chassis also features a dual layer bottom panel for additional strengthening, and all internal chassis surfaces are copper plated for maximum resistance to RF and electrically induced interference. Around back, the PM-11S3 is equipped with our newly designed reference grade multi-way speaker binding posts which feature pure copper contoured knobs for optimum connectivity with a wide variety of speaker cable terminations.

Whether your music collection is analog, digital or both, the Marantz Reference Series PM-11S3 integrated stereo amplifier sets a new benchmark in audio fidelity, configuration flexibility and control convenience that preserves analog signal integrity. You’ll discover new levels of musical listening pleasure with the PM-11S3 at the heart of your stereo music or multi-channel surround sound audio system.

Authorized dealers like us offer peace of mind. Rapallo

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

Concerned About Fraud?

The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
