Question about Audio Players & Recorders
The right-hand channel of my Marantz PM4400 amp produces very distorted and low volume sound compared with the left hand side which seems to be ok.
Obviously I am no expert but I have tried swapping speakers, speaker cable and using different phono cable from various inputs so I think I am now fairly safe in assuming the problem lies with the amp. I took off the cover but could see only one glass fuse, it looked absolutely fine although I have not tested it (I don't know how!).
Does anyone have any idea what this could be and if so how I could repair it with my limited (i.e. practically non-existent) knowledge?
Go directly to the main amp, follow the leads from the speaker terminals. And you should find something on an heatsink. If there are two transistors see if they are running hotter than the other channel. If you see any damage to them (compare with good channel) replace both!
If all you see is a black box with pins coming out of it you need to replace that. They sometimes have the letters STK on them.
Replace both types with the letters and numbers of the same type. IE 2SC 1220 or STK 589.
