Ki Ruby mallistolla juhlistetaan Ken Ishiwatan 40-vuotista taivalta Marantzin kanssa. Mallistoon kuuluu integroitu vahvistin ja DAC/CD-soitin.
Teknisesti laitteet perustuvat hulppeaan Marantz 10-sarjaan, joten tarkkuus, musikaalisuus, vääntö ja dynamiikka ovat siellä parhaiden joukossa.
Myydään numeroituina pareina ja valmistusmäärä on ainoastaan tuhat kappaletta joten jos tulevaisuuden keräilykappaleet kiinnostavat kannattaa toimia nopeasti.
Marantz PM-KI Ruby Ken Ishiwata Signature Reference Integrated Amplifier Marantz has been designing and making amplifiers for more than 65 years, and for 40 of those the products have reflected expertise of Ken Ishiwata. Now, to mark his four decades with the company, the PM-KI Ruby amplifier has been developed and tuned by a highly experienced engineering team led by KI himself. It features a fully discrete two-stage design with separate power supplies for the pre-amplifier and power amp — plus, a moving coil/moving magnet phono stage complete with Marantz Musical Premium Phono EQ circuit and Marantz HDAM technology for signal purity and exceptional audio quality. PM-KI Ruby is built on a vibration-resistant double layer chassis with thick aluminum panes for rigidity and features a laser-engraved Ken Ishiwata signature to commemorate his legacy.

Marantz has been designing and making amplifiers for more than 65 years, and for 40 of those the products have reflected expertise of Ken Ishiwata. Now, to mark his four decades with the company, the SA-KI Ruby SACD player has been developed and tuned by a highly experienced engineering team led by KI himself. Features the same disc mechanisms as the SA10 that play SACDs, CDs and compilations on CD-ROM or DVD-ROM. The SA-KI Ruby includes an asynchronous USB input that handles formats up to PCM/DXD 384kHz/32bit and DSD11.2MHz and treats all digital music with a unique Marantz Musical Mastering technology. By up-converting all file formats to DSD, using advanced filtering and processing and direct 1-bit conversion to feed the analogue outputs, the SA-KI Ruby delivers sound with remarkable clarity, effortless dynamics and exceptional presence—plus, features a laser-engraved Ken Ishiwata signature to commemorate his legacy.
