Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

We have a Marantz 4400 Amplifier - cannot get the digital sound to work on it - it keeps reverting back to Analogue sound when we try to save it as 'digital'. Any help would be gratefully received....my husband is getting very frustrated as it used to work and now doesn't....

The power amp does need an imput signal ie. tuner, cd , and such to play. You can use the power amp with the other equipment.
Good Luck

Dear Sushant,    I do not think your use of an equalizer has caused any problems.  I will explain the proper use of the source/direct button.  This button's function is to monitor the output of a recorder connected to the record outputs of your amp.  When this button is pressed on the sound going to the speakers comes direct from the "source" (cd, radio tuner, phonograph etc.) when in the off position you can monitor the recording of whatever source is being recorded via the tape deck.  This switch must be off to record through the amps record outputs.    To test this, put a blank tape in the tape deck, choose the source as phono and place the dec in record/pause.  With the source direct button pressed on you should hear a change in volume when moving the amp's volume knob only.  When source direct is off you will be able to hear the output of the tape deck, so adjusting the tape deck's record level will also affect the volume coming out of the speakers.  more record level in/ more level out.!    Below is copied from page 9 of your user operation manual for Marantz's explanation of the source/direct button.  image.tiff
best of wishes, Michael Mittelsdorf

SOURCE: Marantz PM-48 connecting to TV

look on the back of the TV and there should be L/R audio outputs (white & red), connect this to a spare input of your amp via a connecting lead eg. AUX or any other input except PHONO.

hope this helps.

How to output sound to a 2nd device


If you need an analogue output, you can tap stereo analogue audio by using one of the two sets of "pre-out" RCA jacks on the back of your receiver. These provide "headphone like" output power, and will not overload any analogue input connected to it EXCEPT MIC and PHONO inputs on the 2nd device. If it's digital audio output you need, there's an HDMI monitor out, that will provide digital audio to another HDMI input equipped device. You'll have to get a relatively cheap adaptor if you need this digital audio output in another digital format/connection (like the popular S/PDIF optical or coaxial).

Marantz 4400 Distortion and scope adjustment issues.


The unit will need servicing, I would not recommend you poking around with the scope circuity as there is up to 580v there and it will ring your bell. I have worked on several 4400's and nursed them back to good health.

My Denon AVR1611 powers up and the TV sound works just fine, but after 5 seconds or so the sound quits and I have to press the quick select sat/cable button to start it up again.


hi,
There are two types of input for sat/cable in your amplifier. One is the Digital input and the other is the Analogue input. You didn't specified which one is currently used by you.
However, if you connect the digital input then you have to configure the input assignment to digital and for analogue input configure as analogue.
If you use analogue input and input assignment is in digital mode then the problem mentioned by you can occur.

First of all check the input assignment for sat cable. for that do the following
1. Press the menu button on the amplifier's remote.
2. Select input setup
3.select input assinment ( check the input assignment for sat/cable, If you are using the analogue
input select it as analogue,if your are using the digital input then select it as digital.
ok

No audio produce in optical connection


Hi,
Typically when you use the optical connector from a DVD player there are several steps to getting everything ready to hear sound.

First: The Marantz Receiver will have a setup menu option for changing the DVD player to "optical" or it will say "digital" input. Once this is done, you should immediately get Sound.
Secondly, the DVD player (may) have an option to be switched to a digital output through the optical port. You would be able to find this out with it's user manual.
I really hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

Marantz pm 7200 lost sound, only works when volume is up high, still looks like there are no high or medium frequencies.


You have either lost the pre-amp stage or the Main Amp stage. Since you have a problem on both channels it most be a part that is common to both channels. Something like an IC I would suspect.

Whats the difference


a digital tuner has one advantage only,the stations can be pre -set.
a digital reciever uses a pll synsethizer to generate a signal to lock on the station,an analog tuner is subject to more drift,and as well the sensitivity is a hair less,but if you get a tuner with fet front end transistors,it will sound better.
alot of people say that the hysterisis signal is more evident on a digital tuner.
buy an old marantz or pioneer from the 70s.
the marantz 2275 is 75 watts a side and will outdo todays 500 watt home theatre amps.
they do not build them like that anymore.

The fuse keeps blowing in my marantz pm-57 amplifier. It says it takes a T 2.5A 250V fuse. I can only find 2.5A 250V fuses. What relevance is the ''T''.


Goo day sir, the T on the fuse has nothing to do on you marantz fuse blowing up, chances are you amplifier is shorted, check you IC amplifier/power transistor for shorts. Check also your speaker impedance. usually they are 8 ohms. You can use a technician's multitester device to check the impeadance. An imbalance or mismatch speaker can cause a fuse to blow and destroy your amplifier. hope this helps.

Marantz pm 15 s1 amplifier and marantz sa15 s1 Cd player


There really is no point in  connecting the two components with an optical (=digital) cable, if you didn't want to use the SA-15s DAC- and analog output section you might aswell have bo bought the chiepest one you could find...

To get better sound than the SA-15s analog outputs can provide, you would have to spend a load of money (not as much as for the SA-15 but quite a bit) on a DAC - and the DAC would only work with CDs, you would still have to use the SA-15s analog outputs to listen to SACDs.

So in conclusion:
-Use the SA-15s analog outputs

-If you have other digital sources that you want to use - if you care about their sound quality - you can sell/return the SA-15s, buy the chiepest CD-Player you find (only look and feel matter) and spend the rest on a good DAC. (note: SACDs won't play on this setup)


I'm using a PM-15S1 with a DAC (Apogee Mini DAC, Studio-Equipment, nominal price ~1000$, got mine 2nd hand for 400€ ) myself. A DAC is usually the better choice over an expensive CD-Player - especially if you've got other digital sources (PC, ...) - but you'll probably lose a lot of money if you sell the SA-15, so think about it (IF you're still thinking about it, I realise that your question is 8 months old...)


anyway... have fun with the PM-15, it sure is beauty

Marantz SR7500 Home receiver, Digital CD will not play


Verify that the digital output is enabled. This is a switchable output. A brown-out or other power isseu may have shut it down.
Get back to us if that is not the case.
