Question about Marantz PM7200 2-Channel Amplifier
I have marantz pm 7200 integrated amp.
problem:- if i press/on the " source direct" button, sound comes out from speakers. but if i 'off ' the push button,sound stops coming out from speakers.why??
that means i can hear the flat sound by using source direct button,but i can't use bass and treble tone appilaction by using its knobs.
i have been using equaliser with my amp.do you think it has created any problem?
please guide and help me.
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.
best of wishes, Michael Mittelsdorf

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.
