Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Make sure all your speaker connections and your phono lead connections are good and connected properly.also if you have the correct source(input for cd player etc.)pressed in,this could also be the correct speaker setting(a or b speakers)if your amplifier has a+b settings.check your speakers at the back to see if there are any switches,or if they are bi wirable(if they are bi wireable you will need two sets of wires running to both speakers from both speakers (a) and the (b) terminals,as if this was the case and you are only using 1 set of cables then only the treble may be working without any bass or the other way around.you could also look at your phono leadsby giving them a light twist to see if there are bad connections,if not if you can try and ask a friend or neighbour to try the speakers on their sound system and then you will know if its your amp or speakers that have the problem.i suspect it is your amp,if you have tried these things and got nowhere then you may have blown your output transisters and would be better off getting a new amplifier as it would cost too much to repair.only you know when the problem started and if it was by playing the amplifier too loud for too long then the volume dropped right down the it is probably the transisters that have been blown.hope this helps

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

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.

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.
