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.  marantz pm 7200 integ.amplifier - image.tiff

Set the tape monitor / record selector to 'off'.
you will have had to set this to 'on' to hear the sound via the equalizer.
a source direct button is for bypassing all the tone controls so you can hear the natural sound of whatever source you happen to be listening to.
using the source direct button while using an equalizer at the same time is defeating the whole object of having a source direct function.

Marantz problems


The speakers are 8ohms. Always try using speakers 6 or 4ohms. For B&W 683 on PM 6004 is too low. You should go for PM 7000 or 8000 series to catchup with 683. Also when you increase the volume please decrease the bass as well.
You need 8ohm 55w to 90w or 4ohm 80w to 110w speakers.

Marantz SR-7200 reset


This was documented on the Marantz website briefly a year ago and is no longer available. My SR-7200 develops "click/pop" problems and a reset cures it of these issues.

While powered "off," on the front panel, press: A/D + FP +Dimmer (3 buttons) and power the unit on.

This reverts to original (out of box) settings. You then must reprogram input sources, speaker setup, levels and radio stations.

Marantz pm 7200 loudspeakers do not cut off when headphones pugged in


Some amps have a button which you press to mute the speakers when the headphones are plugged in. Sometimes marked "Speakers on off". If it hasn't then a new headphone socket would not be expensive to fit. As long as the amp producers sound I don't see any future problems. The previous owner may have used the headphone socket a lot, and simply wore it out!

I am thinking of replacing my now very old JVC AX 330 amplifier with a Marantz PM7003 amplifier and want to know if this is a suitable replacement in terms of power output etc.


You, sir, are a rare adherent to stereo-only electronics. Are you replacing it for cause (showing its age)? The PM7003 is only 2 x 70 watts like the JVC but it also has separable preamp/amps so you COULD upgrade or augment the power output with external amps and still control it all locally.

Of course, any current AVR's do that too and bring digital sources and multichannel audio to the mix for as little as the PM7703 may cost.

I have a Marantz SR7200. I have been using for a long time with 6ch stereo with no problem. Suddenly, it starts to make a lot of noise on front speakers in any mode. It just stops this noise when source...


Hello Sergio.

Sounds like a bare wire (speaker wire) most probably is touching your SR's metal body.

Remove all speaker cables, re-terminate them clean (cut, trim, and twist again) and then re-plug them in to the binding posts.

When you go puredirect, it overcoms some filtering circuits of the board and this should be the reason why it stops.

Try that & advise.

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.

Marantz Pm-7200 left channel weak compared to the right


hmmm. Let's start by swapping the wires you are using for your speakers. Double check the wire connections first, then take the left and place iton the right and vice versa.
