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.
Throughout Europe, Asia, and the Americas, we support our customers with anything they need.
Today, wherever you are in the world you can reach out and touch Marantz.
In 1953, on his kitchen table, Saul Marantz created the first 100 units of the Audio Consolette - the first ever Marantz.
Demand for the Audio Consolette exceeded his expectations. Saul and his trusted engineer Sidney Smith worked tirelessly together on subsequent models, bringing the listener closer to the music with each generation.
Life in New York continues to be a source of inspiration for Marantz. Contemporary luxury, passion for music, and the beating rhythm of a life of ambition are fused with the heritage of Marantz to create a unique culture and approach.
