Excellence Only Begins With Performance
AMP 10 is a remarkably powerful 16-channel amplifier. Pair with AV 10 for an elite, reference-level home theater system. AMP 10 is rated at 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 400 watts per channel into 4 ohms. AMP 10 is built on Marantz exclusive HDAM and newly developed Class D amplification.
- 200 watts per channel into 8Ω / 400 watts per channel into 4Ω
- 16 channels powers even the largest home theaters
- Bi-amp mode drives high and low-frequency sections of loudspeakers with separate amps
- Bridge mode combines two channels into a single 400-watt channel
- Perfect match for Marantz AV 10 processor
- Balanced XLR input is ideal for reducing input noise
Making sound the Marantz way is a seamless fusion of art and science, practiced by artisanal creators who balance and select components individually for their sonic qualities— they are the Sound Masters. AMP 10 cleverly combines very high power output and high channel count to create a master reference-level amplifier for an ultimate home theater performance. Separate power supplies for line level and high-power stages ensure total signal purity from input to output. Custom Class D output creates no-compromise power.
Marantz design is timelessly elegant— an expression of the musical soundscapes the products create. The center-mounted and softly lit analog level meter is meticulously detailed like a fine timepiece. It is both functional and a fitting homage to early Marantz pieces. While substantial in stature, AMP 10 is elegantly constructed with steel and aluminum casework and knobs. The subtle texture molded into the front panel is lit by the dimmable soft glow of sidelights on either side of the control surface.
Your cinema is an integral part of your home. Therefore, Marantz has provided a rich assortment of connections and configuration options to make AMP 10 your ideal amplifier. While each of the 16 channels can operate independently, channel pairs can also be switched into bi-amp mode for isolating frequency bands from each other or switched into BTL mode to produce up to 400 watts per channel into 8 ohms for your highest output demands.
AMP 10 defies the common logic that one cannot have high power and a high channel count in a single enclosure. Through years of development, Marantz has engineered a 16-channell 200-wattper-channel amplifier that performs at extraordinarily high levels with no loss in fidelity. Custom Class D amplification is highly efficient, and strategically incorporated whisper-quiet fans keep the unit running optimally even under highly dynamic conditions.
Gold-plated RCA and high-grade XLR connectors accept audio input from most surround processors. Custom Marantz SPK 1+ binding posts are ergonomic and provide the best possible coupling to loudspeaker cables. Low-distortion, high-power output provides ample drive to virtually any loudspeaker configuration to maximize performance in any room.
Using an included cable, control and status information from AMP 10 can be transmitted to AV 10 making network control and automation simple. Further, RS232 and DC trigger inputs are available to make automating AMP 10 with a home control system possible.
Typical amplifiers use typical parts. Exceptional amplifiers like AMP 10 use bespoke technologies to achieve ultimate performance. Marantz has further optimized their legendary HDAM-SA2 circuitry for use in all signal paths. HDAM SA2’s high slew rate and low impedance maximize clarity, resolution, and tone.
Custom Class D
AMP 10 renders dynamics with lifelike impact and clarity thanks to custom Class D amplification. Channel pairs synchronize switching frequencies, heavy bus bars replace typical wiring harnesses for better current delivery, and custom-curated ingredients elevate innovative engineering into the realm of rare excellence.
Isolated Power Supplies
The high-power and small-signal portions of AMP 10 have very different power supply needs. Marantz engineered a new clean and quiet linear power supply to shield the signals from each other to prevent interference and maintain Marantz warmth and detail. The new power supply features a custom toroidal transformer for the input section and small signals. The new design provides high power output portions of the amplifier receive massive current on demand from a switch mode power supply.
Many high-end loudspeakers can be driven by two amplifiers at once (known as bi amping) one for low frequencies and one for high frequencies. AMP 10 can pair channels into bi-amp mode to maximize performance from loudspeakers that benefit from this feature.
