The company can trace its roots back to the dawn of the first mono LP, when Saul Bernard Marantz, a native of New York, was unhappy with the equipment available to play his cherished record collection on. So he had to build his own! Saul officially founded the Marantz Company in 1953. Then, as now, the company’s cornerstones were quality and innovation. For over half a century Marantz has been developing unique technologies and bringing landmark hi-fi and home entertainment products to market through its tireless and extensive R&D programs. Such commitment to audio and video excellence ensures each Marantz design delivers class-leading performance.
Marantz offers two product line-ups. “The Range” series is known for offering the most flexible system building options imaginable for every lifestyle. And at the very high-end, the “Premium Series” guarantees hi-fi purists the ultimate listening experience. Further product categories have been developed over the years such as The ‘Reference’ models, faithfully reproducing the purist musical emotion. Finally, the KI (Ken Ishiwata) models offer unparalleled quality. Ken Ishiwata is a gifted audio designer who believes sound reproduction should touch the listener in a way no other sensation can. His personal signature on a Marantz product is the sign of no-compromise high fidelity.
»MUSIC IS THE HIGHEST FORM OF ART. IT IS ALSO THE MOST NOBLE. IT IS HUMAN EMOTION, CAPTURED, CRYSTALLISED, ENCASED… AND THEN PASSED ON TO OTHERS.
