Saul Marantz, the legend behind our audio experiences, was a true pioneer of Hi-Fi.
Surrounded by music, Marantz found that a home music system that met his exacting standards in the early 1950's just did not exist. He envisioned a completely new architectural idea for sound reproduction, and employing his skill in electrical engineering, built the proof of his concept - the Audio Consolette, a Hi-Fi pre-amplifier designed for the home.
In 1953, Saul's passion project became a business and the Marantz Audio Company was born from his home in New York.
The spirit of Marantz has transcended geographies in the decades since. Our products are engineered by some of the most experienced in the world, and they are expertly tuned to the highest standards by the finest experts in Japan.
