Our OSE products are based on exciting audio devices withinthe Marantz range and are upgraded to very high standards.Therefore our OSE products exceed every expectation. Thesespecially labeled products are designed with the greatest carefor construction and component use. Based on the PM4001and in line with our care for nature we have ensured that thePM4001 OSE is environmental friendly as well, whendisposed of, after a lifetime of musical enjoyment. The OSEproducts have really become a Marantz trademark in terms of value for money.
Every Marantz product is designed with a fine ear and eye fordetails. The designers have to know the characteristics of every component. On paper the component might lookexcellent but the result may fall short of the combined designexpectations. Therefore Marantz collects vast amounts of information upon specifics component performancecapabilities. The result guarantees Marantz selects theappropriate components for the specific design application.The sonic result is critically acclaimed by internationalreviewers. In other cases it's simply not possible to usestandard components that meet the high Marantz standards.These components will then be specially made for Marantzonly in co-operation with the Marantz engineers.
To achieve the best possible sonic performance, signal pathsneed to be short, direct and mirror imaged. The constructionof our circuitry provides improved stereo image by ensuringsymmetry between right and left channel layout. The tonedefeat circuit will insure shortest signal paths by passing tonecontrol board completely. The rigid chassis, solid metalconstruction and solid metal front create an anti-resonantenvironment.
Symmetric circuit architecture
In not all domestic environments the availability of onespeaker system is sufficient. The PM4001 OSE is equipped with the possibility to connect 2 pairs of loudspeakers. Thespeaker systems can be switched on and off by simply selecting the speaker system on the front of the amplifier. Another option for the second speaker connection is toprovide a bi-wired connection for your main loudspeakers.By doing so, this provides each loudspeaker drive unit (bassdriver and tweeter unit) to have a separate and directconnection to the amplifier. This reduces any influence theinternal cross-over may exert upon the music. In effect eachdrive unit has a separate and independent filter networkeliminating all crossover distortion.
Two pair of speaker outputs
To optimize equipment in terms of ease of use, Marantz hasdesigned the D-Bus system. Individual devices inform eachother, in order to automatically tune to the customersdemands. At the same time received remote controlcommands are communicated via this bus. This enablesequipment without IR-receiver, like a cassette deck or tuner,to be controlled via the bypacked Marantz System RemoteController.
In control of the system
Every electronic equipment product is built of single electricalcomponents that are made of different material andsubstances. Marantz assure that the components used in ourproducts are free of any dangerous material or substance tokeep our environment clean. We have for example removedhazardous substances like lead in the solder.
