Marantz has introduced the Model 40n integrated amplifier, which, according to the company, sets “a new standard for outstanding sound quality while providing easy access to a vast library of digital music, podcasts and more.”
Just Add Speakers
Listening to music is effortless thanks to built-in access to music streaming from Spotify Connect, Apple Music via Airplay, Pandora, Tidal, and many more services. The Model 40n also provides access to high resolution personal file libraries, up to PCM 192 kHz/24-bit, as well as DSD up to 5.6 MHz. Wireless connectivity options include Apple Airplay, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi with HEOS.
The Model 40n offers a full complement of analog and digital inputs to accommodate any source, including Marantz Musical Phono EQ — a moving magnet phono stage for vinyl playback. Unusually for products in this category, Model 40n features an HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) input making audio playback from a TV possible. A dedicated subwoofer output with crossover adjustments enables users to optimize bass response for any listening room. Enthusiasts will enjoy all these options through Marantz analog amplification that delivers spacious, dynamic sound.
Whole Home Audio
The Model 40n has been designed to work as the primary hub for one or multiple rooms. With HEOS Built-in technology, the entire family can enjoy their favorite music in any room for a wireless, whole-home experience. Play the same song in every room to create a festive mood or select different songs for each connected room by adding HEOS-capable speakers throughout the home.
Featuring advanced Wi-Fi technology, the Model 40n facilitates wireless streaming via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth that is stable even in congested urban settings. For an intuitive user experience, the Model 40n comes with a remote control and conveniently works with Siri, Alexa, Google, and Josh.ai voice command systems as well as the Control4 smart home ecosystem.
A new 70-watt per channel (8-ohm) Class A/B amplifier stage has been developed that exceeds the performance of earlier models with similar power ratings. A larger power supply transformer, four output transistors per channel, heavy copper bus bars, and very short power pathways lower internal impedance and deliver high instant current capability making Model 40n highly dynamic and an excellent match for even difficult to drive loudspeakers.
The Model 40n leverages the company’s proprietary Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Modules (HDAMs) that deliver the most musical sound possible — from precise bass transients to smooth, balanced midrange and high frequencies from any connected loudspeaker. Leveraging curated discrete surface mount components and the shortest possible signal paths, the HDAMs inside the Model 40n have been engineered to provide uncompromised listening.

The Marantz Model 40n Integrated Amplifier will be available in two finishes: Marantz Black and Silver Gold. MSRP is $2499 and is available at authorized Marantz retailers and online at www.marantz.com in March 2022.
