Marantz vs Sony – tangled ways to success

I have come up with the idea to compare Marantz vs Sony brands in order to show their hidden stories that stand behind figures in a comparison chart. Sony vs Marantz can oppose their merchandise but they share similar backgrounds: from nowhere to the world’s recognition.

Marantz included its experience from a long co-existence with Philips into SR Series Home Theater Receiver that was bestowed with Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module and current-feedback technology and AirPlay connectivity. More recent models already supported RS-232C control and at least one 12V trigger output.

Sony created BRAVIA, Cyber-shot, Handycam, Pictures, PlayStation, Xperia; it introduced the floppy disk, Compact Disc, and Blu-ray Disc.

Marantz – created almost by occasion

Marantz

A story of the Marantz Company started from love of its founder to music. Saul B. Marantz by himself was looking for a profound pre-amplifier that he was bound to create by himself in order to listen to the music of a high quality. The process took four years but he got the pre-amp that included all possible equalizer curve records existed at that time. He named his creation ‘Audio Consolette’ and during the next year sold 100 of the same sets that became the first product of the newborn company.

The company was started in America (New York in particular) but later the manufacture relocated into Japan. However, it wasn’t an independent company for a long time. Shortly after, it was bought by Philips and from the mid-1970, all devices were created in cooperation with these two companies. From this period, Marantz inherited technology of CD players’ production that it would use in the future when it became an independent company in 2001.

NR series stands out by its compact size: lightness and slimness. It also combined features from more pricey models such as integrated wireless networking features and two additional component video inputs as a 7.1 receiver NR1605. Also, there is an analog video conversion to HDMI and a discrete Zone 2 that can be powered by the Surround Back amps in the 7.1 system.

Sony – step by step evolution

Sony

Sony started from a tiny company that produced rice cookers and developed into a conglomerate that incorporates gaming, filming, and even financial areas and known around the world – an excellent case for inspiration. It stood up from the ashes of destroyed Tokyo in 1946. At the beginning, in the electronics repair shop only 8 employees were involved. Late, the founding father, Masaru Ibuka, was joined by a friend and together they developed TTEC but still, they continued producing domestic electronic goods. The first device created by the new company was the Type-G - the first Japanese tape recorder.

The noticeable breakthrough happened in the 1950s with the first Japanese Type G recorder introduction. It was followed by the first transistor radio, Trinitron color television, and Blu-ray Disc recorder. However, the worldwide recognition came with an epochal TR-63 portable radio, Walkman, and PlayStation that influenced generations.

In 2018, Sony introduced receivers of the entry-level with such features: the standby signal that goes through the TV even when a receiver doesn’t work; the ability to decode LPCM audio from a Blu-ray player; the Digital Media Port for analog audio and video signal and digital.

It produced 8 receiver models from $230 to $500: STR-DH510, DN610; DH710; DH810; DN1010; in the higher price range from $800 to 2040: DN2010; DA3600ES, DA5600ES; the most advanced models like STR-DA3600ES has the improved GUI and auto room calibration system; it can be a DLNA network client and a server.
