The most musical sound
of Marantz meets the finest artists of today
Yoshinori Ogata, the Marantz Sound Master, has the golden ear that ensures every Marantz product lives up to our lofty standards. Ogata-san personally selected the music on Volume 1 from the tracks he uses when evaluating Marantz equipment, so you can hear exactly what he hears.
Explorations in Sound’s extensive liner notes provide a guided tour of the entire collection. Our curators have written a note about each track they selected to help you understand why they chose the track for the collection, and what they think you should listen for when you hear it.

"The shimmery chorus comes down like a sheet of rain"
"Enjoy the sound of ancient instruments played up close and personal"
"Complex in nature, but begging to be peeled back"
"The soundscape created is quite wonderful and has the capacity to coat a listening room from floor to ceiling"
"This has a unique sound that you do not get much anywhere else"
"Sonically, it’s got a wide spectrum of information too — good for using to test a new system"
