Marantz Pure Direct = Pure Analogue Path

Recommended Posts

Pure direct analogue mode is not going to convert AVR to stereo integrated.

Certainly no, though you must consider that we are talking about an AV preprocessor that does not contain amplification, so if we are to compare it, we should compare it to a stereo preamp. While I have not done a comparison myself, I understand that a mid to high-end dedicated stereo preamp is likely to outperform the Marantz AV preprocessor being discussed here.

Ah yes, sorry, I should say Pure direct analogue mode is not going to convert AV pre - amplifier to stereo pre - amplifier. I would say $3k stereo preamp is going to sound better with music just because It was design for music only. This Marantz has so many features, it does almost everything, stereo preamp has volume control and does nothing else (usually).

@Irek have you heard an 8805?

No, my opinion is based on speculation. I heard direct comparison between AVR 6011 vs PM 8005.
