Marantz Model 40n integrated amplifier with streaming

Marantz Model 40n – just add speakers

We've been waiting for this one, and the Model 40n is finally here.

The very nice model series that Marantz released six months ago, is one of the best looking we have had on the test bench. There’s not much bad to say about the sound either, and the integrated Model 30 and SACD player SACD 30n, are some of the most appealing we’ve listened to in the premium class.

However, curiously, the integrated Model 30 was a pure analogue preamplifier, albeit with Hypex amplifier modules, and if you want digital inputs or streaming, you’ll have to buy the SACD player.

This is not for everyone, since not everyone who needs streaming also has CDs.

But with the Model 40n the problem is solved.

It’s highly wireless, and you can stream wirelessly via both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi with Apple AirPlay 2, and yes, it has multiple digital inputs including USB with up to 192kHz/24 bit, in addition to analogue. Among them a turntable input for MM pickups.

It even has HDMI with audio return – ARC – so that you can connect the TV sound via the amplifier, which has 2 x 70 W power for a pair of capable speakers.
