The Story of Marantz

Marantz began in New York City in 1953 when Saul Marantz introduced his Consolette Pre-Amp. A sister company of Denon under D&M Holdings, today Marantz continues its quest for perfect sound reproduction under the mantra “music matters”. This mantra is still reflected by the quality of its players and receivers, which are much loved in the hi-fi community.
