As you would expect from an Award-winning KI Pearl, this new current feedback amplifier has been given layer upon layer of tender loving care. For example, the high-quality components that proved such a success in the original KI Pearls are now used in this new amp. This helps ensure that it faithfully reproduces the music?s dynamic structure, tonal quality and stereo image. This new Pearl has also been given a copper-plated chassis to help ensure the lowest possible impedance grounding.?And, because ?vinyl? is back, the?PM-KI?Pearl?Lite?supports?Phono?MM also with current feedback technology.

Little wonder this wonderful amplifier was just awarded Australia’s ‘Stereo Amplifier?of the Year 2013‘ (under $5,000).

When the Original KI Pearl was first introduced last year, they were universally acknowledged as supremely exquisite high audio gems. Not only did they take music sensations to new heights, but they were also the ideal tribute to Ken Ishiwata’s 30-year association with Marantz. Special listening demonstrations across the globe, music lovers were first captivated and then totally spellbound by their supreme performance. However, as a highly exclusive limited edition, they were also beyond the reach of many.

That’s why Marantz decided to reuse all that had been discovered in developing the original Pearls to create the KI Pearl Lites. So that more people could take part. Importantly, the new Lites embody the same passion, the same commitment, and the same emotion as the original Limited Edition. Only the exterior design is different, their performance is still sublime.
