Marantz PM385


The PM385 is an inexpensive amplifier using discrete output transistors capable of driving low impedance loads and delivering high dynamic power.

Discrete transistors are used, rather than the more common integrated circuits found in competing budget amplifiers, to give a cleaner, less aggressive sound.

The PM385 can deliver all the punch and dynamics of modern CD recordings.

Four audio sources can be switched (including CD and video). Treble, bass and balance controls are all easy to use vertical sliders.

A headphone socket is provided on the fascia while two independent loudspeaker systems can be operated and selected from a front panel switch.

Year: 1989

Price: GBP £99.99 (1989)
