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??

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 PM-66 SE: Power light comes on, but the amp does not work


try taking a flashlight and look through cover into unit for a blown fuse or take cover off (which is better) if taking cover off unplug unit. If a fuse is blown remove it and take to a store like Radio Shack for proper fuse watt and amp..if fuses are ok i would get it fixed...sounds like a minor problem since main power is there. GL

I disagree without a source this is what you would get, no sound.
Contact the manufacturer or try an on line search with Google!

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!

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-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.
