Question about Marantz Audio Players & Recorders
This kind of problem is logical, if you have the "loudness" control enabled. Well, let me explain the situation. The loudness control is a function that boosts the lower and higher frequencies (the bass and treble) in low volume settings. This is useful because at low volume settings our ears are not so sensible at these frequencies, so the result is nice to hear. This boost (the loudness) stops automatically (at most amplifiers) at volume settings just above the middle of the volume control (to be more specific near the 1 hour setting of the volume knob), that's the point that you get this cracking sound. In case the audio source has plenty of bass frequencies the result is what you hear.
I suggest you to lower the bass boost potentiometer or disable the loudness control when you hear music at these volume levels. A good idea also is to disable the loudness control permanently and boost the bass and treble from the knobs as you wish. This will give you a sound near the original one although at the beginning you will feel the absence of bass (this is because the sound you were listening before has more bass).
In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.
