HiFi Buys Welcomes Marantz to our Family of Products


For nearly 70 years, Marantz has been at the forefront of outstanding hifi products. Frustrated by what was currently on the market, Saul B. Marantz, a classical guitarist, started making his own hifi products in the early 50s. To get the sound quality he craved, he built his first pre-amplifier, the Consolette, in 1952. Realizing that there were probably others who would appreciate one, he built (and quickly sold) 100 units in the basement of his home in Kew Gardens, NY, and the rest is history.

We are excited about adding Marantz, because they – like us – believe that, “Music should be reproduced – in our opinion – exactly the way the artist intended, because nothing – absolutely nothing – should get in the way of the music. That’s why we at Marantz have only one philosophy: ‘Because Music Matters.’”

Today, every product they make is painstakingly tuned by sound masters and no component leaves the factory without rigorous testing. They have also developed some exclusive audio technologies, like the Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Modules (HDAMs), which deliver ultra-wide-band response and detailed reproduction, and the Marantz Musical Mastering which filters new media files into exceptional high res playback.

We can’t wait to get their products in the store (arriving soon!) so we can show you how great they can make your music sound. We are happy to tell you more and answer any question you have in the meantime, so don’t hesitate to call or email us.
