Marley is a very high performance headphones amplifier conceived to give best sound quality with every kind of headphones, from small in-ear models to expensive and challenging planar transducers devices. Its pure Class-A, discrete components amplifiers deliver crystal-clear sound at any level up to 8Vrms in single-ended mode (that is, driving headphones provided with standard 6.35mm jack) or 16Vrms in balanced mode (that is, driving headphones provided with 4-pin XLR jack). Two stereo amplifiers are fitted into the Marley, each one with its volume control. This way, two headphones can be driven in single-ended mode to allow two listeners to enjoy their music at their favourite listening level. On the other hand, purist audiophiles using headphones with balanced drive capability can set the Marley in balanced mode, obtaining 6dB more SPL and improved sound quality. Features include input switching, preamp output to drive a power amplifier, tape output, balance, muting, mode selection (single-ended or balanced), volume display mode selection, auto switch-off. Volume can be set in 1dB steps between -78dB and 0dB. Muting attenuates the level by 20dB when needed. Auto switch off is a cool feature implemented to comply with energy saving regulations which will also be useful to users who like late night listening and falling asleep while enjoying their music. Power capability is also awesome for such a small unit: 4Wrms per channel on 8 Ohms and a SNR of 120dB (A-weighted) allow for driving high sensitivity speakers with outstanding results (output adaptor needed). Marley is provided with a 15V-30VA wall adaptor. An input for an external high-current, low-noise power supply is also present on the rear panel.
Za zahtevnejše uporabnike slušalk, omogoča priklop slušalk tudi v "balansiranem načinu" XLR, kar še dodatno izboljša dinamiko .
Dodatno napajanje Van der Graaf pa dvigne ojačevalec Marley še za eno stopnico višje v naravni reprodukciji .
