Video – First impression Marantz Model 40n

We have had the Marantz Model 40n in our house for a week now. A “Just add Speakers” device. To give you an idea what this Marantz can do and what our first measurements show, we made a video. Note: this is not a review; it’s a first impression!

The Marantz Model 40n is an addition to the Marantz “Model” series that harkens back to the glory days of Hi-Fi. A year or so ago the Model 30 was introduced. This is not a competitor: the Model 40n is clearly a step down in price. The 40n costs 2500 Euro… as a total package. The Model 30 costs 3200 Euros per component.

Digital and Analog

The Marantz Model 40n brings besides a class A/B amplifier also a series of digital inputs, a streamer (with besides ethernet also offers 2.4 and 5 GHz wifi for connectivity), three normal analogue inputs, phono MM and a recording loop plus sub-out. Very neat.

We have already measured the Marantz; our findings can be found in the video. And if you log in, you can also view the measurements in the database (top menu).
