Question about Marantz SR-5200 Receiver
Hi, my SR5200 has loud distortion on both Left and Right Front channels only, regardless of input selected, regardless of surround mode selected. Volume still increases and decreases but appears about twice as loud as all other channels, degree of distortion increases and decreases with volume. This is the same from the pre outs too (hooked power amp into front pre outs and same result). When volume is set to -infinity, channels are silent. Problem began as soon as amp was powered on (after being off for about 6hours, prior to which it was fine). Have tried 24hour shutdown, no improvement. All other channels work fine in all modes.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Well, the nice thing about the newer amps is that the actual amp circuitry is all contained in a module and you don't have to do much troubleshooting. Just replace the module for that pair of channels. Bad news of course is the modules can be pricey. Should say right on it the part number, order it from mcminone.com or whoever, solder it in, use new conductive grease (many times I think these modules fail because the grease gets old, the module overheats and toasts) and you should be fixya'd
