Marantz 70th Anniversary
In Pursuit of the Most Musical Sound for 70 years
Since 1953, Marantz has had a long and rich history of designing audio components embraced by music lovers and critical listeners around the world. Their pursuit to capture sound in its purest form began 70 years ago and still inspires them today. From New York to Japan, their expert Sound Masters have perfected the art of precision to create state-of-the-art, powerful yet refined components that deliver an unparalleled listening experience—time and again.
In the early days of audio recordings, records suffered from inconsistent recording characteristics. In 1952 and unhappy with equipment available at the time, music lover, freelance graphic artist, and amateur musician Saul Bernard Marantz created what was for the time a revolutionary pre-amplifier. The ‘Audio Consolette’ was equipped with every equalizer curve necessary to handle erratic recording characteristics, and it immediately struck a chord with his friends.
Saul built the very first Audio Consolette at his kitchen table. Impressed with the result, his wife and friends encouraged him to make more. The first 100 units of the Audio Consolette sold quickly and soon the new pre-amplifier was in high demand. Faced with a large backlog of orders, Saul established the Marantz Company in 1953 and opened a factory in Woodside, Queens, New York.
From those early days of tubes to more contemporary digital and now streaming, Marantz continues to innovate in the Pursuit of the Most Musical Sound.
