If it went out with no indications of trouble it's probably a fuse in the output circuit. It might be an out put amp but typically they let you know they're going bad with a little noise.

Sound level drops as if amp isn't putting out any power under normal circumstances. Marantz 5010 only happen once 2 month's old.


Without knowing your setup and what you were playing I would suggest it is probably OK. A bad connection could cause this.

Are the speakers all connected properly and set to the right pair ( A or B)?

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 pm730 pre amp works ok no sound from main amp to speakers.lights up and every thing else works


Look at the final out transistors. I'm not sure if you would have transistors or an amplifier pack? It has 8 to 14 pins maybe. Look to see if there are any burnt components,cracks, or where something got hot. Most components break down because of heat.Also look for bad solder joints.

Marantz 2220B with Sound Problem at Half volume


The most likely cause of this is some DC current working its way through the system. WIthout taking some measurements, it will be difficult to confirm this though. This should not be an expensive repair. Figure on $20 or so for parts (capacitors mostly).

Vintage Stereo Connection ???


Hi spanky

Where to start :) I am excited thinking about them :p You got 2 totally cool pieces of classic vintage gear there in the C2 and the Marantz. I have a C2 preamp myself (gathering dust but wont sell it cos its excellent) and the marantz would be totally cool to have(but then I am a little biased towards 70's vintage marantz). They ruled the roost in HiFi amps throughout that decade.

Because they are both integrated amps, you could use them as standalone systems with a pair of speakers, and just plug your favourite gear into them. If you just wanted to run up a nice sounding HiFi, I would sell the kenwood gear and just keep the Marantz. The Kenwood kr1100 has the edge in power, so if it is grunt you are looking for use that. Because vintage sound is all about stereo, you only really need an integrated amp to get great results.

the specs are
# Kenwood Model Eleven G (KR-11000G) Receiver
120W per channel min RMS, both channels driven, at 8 ohms from 20 to 20.000 Hz with no more than 0.03% total harmonic distortion.
Dynamic power output 440W at 4 ohms
Power bandwidth 5 Hz to 70.000 HZ
Frequency response 5 Hz to 100.000 HZ -1.5dB
Signal to noise ratio 115dB

The marantz is a little lower in power at 75rms a channel, but will have the sonic edge in vintage sound over the kr1100. Look them up on ebay and you will find that they do have some value to collectors and people seeking nice tone. There is an 1152 for sale here for AU$900

Best bet is to fire up the 2 integrated amps,and see how they are going. Run them for several hours to be sure there is no strange noises and crackles. Then decide if you want power or finesse.

You could also run both amps from the C2 preamp by connecting to the Amp in connections to the rear of the integrated amps.

happy to talk to you more about it, hit me with a Fixya if my advice was helpful to you. I would keep the marantz, use that and sell the rest and buy some nice speakers:)

My old Marantz Amp isn't well...


If there are any, make sure you have the set of speakers configured correctly on the amp. There maybe a set of buttons for example button A is for one set of speakers and button B is for the other, make sure this is all configured correctly
