CINEMA 30 represents a statement of excellence for Marantz in the AVR category and one of the most sophisticated designs the team has created in its 70-year history. I cannot wait to hear how it is received by our loyal customers and specialist reviewers

Marantz was founded in 1953 by Saul Marantz with a simple philosophy: getting the listener as close as possible to the original recording. Marantz’s love of music inspired an uncompromising ear and eye for detail and led to the development of products that would define excellence for generations of listeners. Tantamount to Saul Marantz’s original mission, Marantz product design, materials and components result in the Most Musical Sound to this day. Your music always sounds better on a Marantz.
