Get the most musical sound possible from this Master-tuned integrated amplifier. Its custom-designed HDAM delivers exquisite detail and unforgettable musicality from any style of music.
Featuring a fully discrete, two stage design for minimal interference, and unique Marantz HDAM technology for signal purity, MODEL 30 offers exceptional sound quality.
A masterpiece of audio architecture
Hundreds of hours of thoughtful Sound Master tuning ensure the exquisite detail and musicality Marantz always delivers.
You see and feel it in the build quality and you hear it every time. No matter your musical passions, your music always sounds better with MODEL 30.
Marantz HDAM-SA3 technology is comprised of dozens of independent parts, each hand-selected for pure, detailed Marantz sound.
Designed to replicate the sensitivity and feel of a vintage analog amplifier even when simply adjusting the volume.
MODEL 30 is built on its own discrete circuit board, the Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Module, or HDAM.LEARN MORE
By custom-curating hundreds of individual parts, rather than adopting an off-the-shelf solution, the MODEL 30 HDAM significantly outperforms standard integrated circuits to create the unique musicality you always expect from Marantz.
Envisioned to deliver optimal sound quality by simplifying the signal path – vital given the delicate nature of phono signals – the Phono EQ stage in MODEL 30 can be used with both moving magnet and low-output moving coil cartridges, thanks to a built-in MC head amplifier.LEARN MORE
The design lowers distortion, which is why the phono stage uses two-stage amplification, combining Marantz HDAMs with JFETs in the input stage, giving high input impedance. This allows the non-negative-feedback design to be further simplified by the deletion of coupling capacitors, again reducing distortion and enhancing signal purity.
In order to optimize sound performance when using a moving coil (MC) or magnetic moving (MM) cartridge, and to accommodate all configurations as much as possible, MODEL 30 is equipped with an input impedance selector.LEARN MORE
The input impedance can be adjusted to three different settings: MC LOW (33 ohm), MC MID (100 ohm) and MC HIGH (390 ohm).
Like its counterpart, the SACD 30n Streaming CD Player, the MODEL 30 Integrated Amplifier is designed to the highest standards.LEARN MORE
The solid chassis is constructed from thick, heavy, non-magnetic aluminum panels and a rigid steel top cover to eliminate added interference. Sturdy, brass machined independent input terminals for CD and Phono plus Marantz original high-quality/high-purity nickel-plated speaker terminals ensure the best signal possible.
Founded in 1953, Marantz has a long and rich history of designing audio components embraced by music lovers and critical listeners around the world.LEARN MORE
Because Music Matters, the MODEL 30 continues Marantz’s long tradition of delivering a best-in-class listening experience for music and cinema. Your music always sounds better on a Marantz.
MODEL 30 boasts two independent power supplies for the best separation between the pre-amplifier stages and power amplifier stage, where signal levels are still low and the audio signal is sensitive to any distortion, and the power amplifier stage, which drives the speakers with high signal levels and current. The MODEL 30 power supply circuit, designed exclusively for the preamplifier, enables a stable power supply that is not affected by fluctuations from power demanded by the power amplifier stage. An oversized toroidal transformer, known for its clean supply, is dedicated exclusively for the preamp to ensure high purity. A double shield steel case is mounted around the transformer to suppress the leakage flux that could affect peripheral circuits. The power supply for the power amplifier stage is designed to deliver high current instantaneously to the switching mode amplifier. This ensures full control over connected speakers to follow even the hardest bass attacks and provides clean power for the reproduction of the finest details.
Marantz has built a reputation for choosing the best-possible components for its products. Extensive, loving tuning has long been the secret of fine-sounding Marantz amplifiers. Marantz engineers select and optimize each component through careful listening in dedicated Marantz facilities in Europe and Japan. During the development stage, every part is carefully selected, tested, and validated by the Marantz Sound Master to ensure you get that perfect Marantz sound every time you listen.
MODEL 30 is built on its own discrete circuit board, the Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Module, or HDAM. By custom-curating hundreds of individual parts, rather than adopting an off-the-shelf solution, the MODEL 30 HDAM significantly outperforms standard integrated circuits to create the unique musicality you always expect from Marantz.
In addition to phono and CD analog inputs, MODEL 30 features two line-level inputs and one pair of recorder input/output jacks that enable the connection of multiple sources and recorders. Use MODEL 30 as a standalone stereo power amplifier for additional system configuration versatility with the included power amp direct input. For example, use the front pre-outs of your AV setup and run them through MODEL 30 power amps.
Use the elegant remote control to operate MODEL 30 as well as the complementary SACD 30n Streaming CD Player. MODEL 30 features remote control input and output jacks for additional remote-control configuration flexibility as well as a display for synchronized wake up times.
