Marantz was founded in 1952 in New York, but is now based in Japan. From the very start of Marantz there was a passion for perfection and devotion to music - the defining factors of the company that pushed and redefined playback boundaries. And sixty years on, Marantz design engineers are still pushing the boundaries of technical excellence, because at Marantz, technical excellence is a journey, not a destination. Each incremental breakthrough is celebrated by the company as a forward step that brings music reproduction closer to exactly what the creating artist intended. It's a journey everyone at Marantz is proud to travel.
