    robotec,

    thanks for your response-i have only just purchased the jbl's.(lx55)- i don't have this problem with my original speakers which are still hooked up to the same amp (yamaha). the tracking force is set to 2 and i have tried increasing to 3 with no result. i have also pulled the bottom end out of the graphic equalizer and it still happens - its the strangest thing-.the amp does not have a rumble filter and the turntable is located in an entertainment unit whereas the jbl speakers are on stands to the side . i don't run both sets of speakers together.

    robotec,

    thanks for your advice - the jbl lx55's are rear ported and once i moved them away from the wall corners the problem disappeared

    regards,

Hi phopkins3

You gotta love JBL bottom end:) Is this a new problem or something you have been putting up with. Check settings on the amp first. If you have excessive bass boost you may get this sort of problem. Acoustic isolation is what fixes it. IF bass frequencies are able to couple up to the turn table enough to bounce the needle, then you need to get the T/T better isolated from the speakers. Check that the body of the turntable is isolated from everything, and that it is sitting squarely on its feet. You could also use a rumble filter if your amp has one fitted. The setup on the turntable is also worth a look. Set tracking force to 2-3 grams. Check these things and report back to me here and we shall get to the bottom of your problem for you. :)

When I plug in my marantz TT-42 turntable to my Yamaha R-S300 receiver's phono input, I get a muddy and loud sound. I've tested the turntable with direct input to Bose speakers and it works fine.


If the turntable produces good sound with a line level input on another system, you have the turntable with the pre amp built in. That is why the sound is loud and distorted.

My PL120 turntable purchase new skips often and will hardly work with music played at a loud volume


The first problem could be the stylus needs cleaning. Please shine some light on the stylus ( needle ) and see if it has picked up dirt from the record groove. This will prevent the stylus from tracking the song properly. Clean using a fine brush in the direction in which the stylus passes the record groove i.e from back of the pick up arm to front- NEVER SIDEWAYS.
Next check the counterweight adjustment at the back of the Pick up arm. The tracking force should be between 1.5 to 3 grams depending on the brand of the cartridge. What ever be the chosen weight the antiskating knob should also be set to the same number.
The skipping can also be because of heavy bass vibration traveling up the body of the Turntable.Good turntables have a floating suspension to prevent this. The tuntable platter will be suspended on springs.You can place it on a rubber Matt or move it away from the speakers ,esp: sub woofers.

Whitch port's in back do i use to connect phono. I have a Dual 506 , and White & Black lines, is Black the hot, or white. The Marantz is a sr-685.


You don't, at least not directly.

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on a receiver that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.

I can't get my Marantz 6025 turntable to turn? It has not been used for many years.


As you Marantz 6025 is a belt drive type turntable, the most possible problem is that the belt has been cut or destroyed. You can check it out before order a new one.
Here is the replacement procedure. Pull up the rubber mat, pull up the platter and find the belt. If the belt is removed from the platter, replace it with the glossy side outward. Pull the platter back at the original position. Turn until one of the 2 big openings come over the motor pulley. With your finger place the belt from the platter at the motor pulley. Pull the rubber mat back. You are ready. Here is a schematic for all the above:

Technics SD-L3 TURNTABLE


Does your receiver have a dedicated phono input? If not you'll need to use a preamp between the turntable and receiver. Your other turntable may have a preamp built in and the Technics not.

If this does not help, please post the brand and model of both your receiver and your other turntable.

Sr7200 LFE (sub woofer) output stopped working


Chances are if The Receiver only has sound in Stereo Direct Mode and all surround modes and Sub out are Inop the DSP (Digital Signal Processing) Card is most likey defective. These boards are not available from marantz (D&M Holdings) and must be Component level repaired which usually is not cheap. If Only the Sub out is not working check setup to be sure sub woofer is set for on. Also If On Screen setup menu does not appear on video monitor Unit may need to be Reset manually which entails discharging a Capaitor on main P.C.B Contact kstahl65@att.net for details
