Sounds like an internal prob within the reciever, since recievers have radio tuners in em, maybe a prob in the input switching in it. I assume you are running unbalanced rca cables out of the dvd player into the reciever as it probably doesn't have balanced input capability, unbalanced lines are susceptible to R.F.I. ( radio frequency interference ) but I doubt if that's the problem here unless maybe you are running very long cable lengths from the dvd player to the reciever. Try using a different input and see if the problems still there, can use any input other than phonograph really as they are all line level inputs.

How do I hook up 2 preamps for the front right and left 1 for each channel on a Marantz SR6007? Can I even do it or am I just allowed 1 preamp for the fron right and left channel?


Hi Mark,
One can hook-up as many peamps as desired to the SR6007 either as sources or destinations. How to connect external preamps to the SR6007 depends on what you wish to achieve.
The SR6007 already has its own internal preamps.
You could, if you are not careful, burn the AVRs input circuitry by adding external preamps as "sources". Also, not much improvement in SQ could be gained by external preamps connected to the SR6007's preouts becuase any signals that come out of these have already been processed (or distorted?) by the SR6007s internal preamps.

How do I connect my marantz pm8200 to TV


You can connect TV RCA outputs to any line input e.g. tape, tuner, CD etc on the Marantz. If your TV doesn't have separate RCA outputs use a 'scart to RCA audio outputs' adaptor... TVs have a standard line output level compatible with most if not all hi-fi.

How do I check the internal wiring for input voltage on a Marantz 4060 Quad Amp?


The only way would be a voltage selection switch on the back of the unit, or changing pigtail leads on the primary side of the power transformer.

Suddenly right channel stopped working, could it be a fuse?


I doubt it is a fuse, but it could be 100 different issues. This is not a DIY repair. If you would like to inquire about repairing your Marantz, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there,

Hi can I hook up my marantz mm500u amp to my pioneer 305 vsx audio reciever


I presume you just want to slave the Marantz to play whatever the Pioneer is playing.

Run a pair of RCA cables from either the Pioneer Tape Monitor REC or the VCR/Tape 1 Out jacks to the desired Marantz Input jacks. DON'T activate the corresponding switch on the Pioneer.

Only the basic Leftand Right channel programming that the Pioneer plays will be available at the Marantz. You will NOT have centralized volume control at the Pioneer.

Connecting laptop computer to rx-v395 yamaha amplfier


Hi, yes it is possibe, but you are going to have to buy a stereo 2.5mm jack to 2 phono lead. Connect to headphone socket on laptop and the other to a line input on amplifier and adjust setting to suit.

I hope this helps, if you need more info, I will help.

Hiya Sally_fisher,

Is the feedback sound a low hum and also does this 'feedback sound" occur whether it is selected to CD, turntable, or on all of them regardless of select?

Marantz Pm-7200 left channel weak compared to the right


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.

I have a 6 CD Changer but dont know how to use it?


This is an older way that makers of CD changers used to get CDs into cars that didn't have them.  This is what they tried to get people to by them.  I was never a fan of this system as the sound quality was never better than listening to FM radio.  There is a unit in the car, usually under the dash behind the glove box, that the CD changer is plugged into.  This unit has the FM antenna from the car plugged into it, and then a cable that is the same as that coming from the antenna going from the unit under the dash plugged into the FM antenna jack of the radio in the dash.  All this unit does is take the digital, high quality sound from the CDs, transmit it on an FM frequency (usually low on the FM band 80s, 90s or low 100s) and then you tune the radio into that FM frequency to get the sound form the CDs.  Problem is, the sound quality was only as good as FM radio.  A pretty poor way of getting CDs into cars.  But they sold millions of these things.  If it isn't working, the wiring may have come loose, the fuse to the unit under the dash might be blown, or something is disconnected.  if you go all through the FM dial, 0.1 at a time and don't hear it, it is time to get under the dash near the glove box and poke around.  Good luck.  If it were me, I would take all this gear out and put a new CD/MP3 player where the factory radio currently sits.
