Volume fluctuations When playing CDs on my Marantz CD player, via a Marantz amplifier and Senheisser wireless headphones, the music volume fluctuates regularly. The CD player has been cleaned twice. Can you help please? Thanks, Steve.

Does the volume fluctuate through speakers?

    Thanks very much for replying Ben. I haven't mentioned the problem via speakers. But to be fair, I seldom use them. My main times for music listening are evenings, when the ladies of the house choose the TV. The volume always has to be kept very low, as we live in a terraced house.

    Ok. I understand why you use headphones, however, we need to locate where the fault is. Running basic fault finding will enable a more precise indication of where the problem lay.
    There are three components to rule out : the audio source be it cd, vinyl, pc etc.
    The Amplifier or the headphones.

    Dear Ben,

    I'm sorry, but I may have wasted your time with my enquiry.
    I explained that I had 'cleaned' my CD player, at least 4 times using 2 different discs.
    However, I found an unused cleaner, and thought that I may as well try it. Surprisingly, that seems to have cured the problems. But thank you kindly for your efforts and time.
    Kind Regards,
    Steve.

I have a Marantz turntable, a Marantz CD player, an Eltax tape player and a Marantz amplifier with two Cambridge speakers, how do I assemble them into a stack system please ? Thank you


All the sources, turntable, CD player and tape unit have an output. These should go in the input of the amplifier with the same name. Then only the Tape player, could have an input, for recording music or whatever. For that input, your amplifier should have an tape out. All these should be connected with cables with tulip plugs, like these.

Use the white for left on everything and red for right.
If one of the devices as a different connector, find a cable for audio, with on one end the tulip plugs and on the other end the fitting plug.
Then the output of the power amplifier it should say output or LS, can be connected with 2 wires going to the speakers.
For this the same counts, although it is difficult to see when you use electrical wires in one colour. What comes out red on he amp, should go on the same screw connector on the speaker. Just to avoid one speaker being out of phase. It will work, but could sound a little strange when the speakers are out of phase.
With the correct model names added, perhaps we could have given a more accurate answer.

Success.
Please don't test the system or switch on, with the volume button to the max. Don't switch anything on an amplifier when the volume is high, or the setting is high. A short increase of the volume, during switching can, and has very often destroy(ed) the speakers.

We have Marantz PMD 325 CD players. Usually TOC REading comes up when you put a CD into the player. However sometimes we now get the following message "PMA Reading", What does this mean.


Hi Wendy CD-Rs and CD-RWs have a component that ordinary music CDs do not have -- an ...This additional track space includes the power memory area (PMA) and the ... which tells the CD player what part of the disc it is reading at any particular time. ...uncorrected error on a music CD only means a bit of fuzz or a skipping noise. GOOD LUCK !

My NAD C326BEE amp goes into protection mode at moderate volume


The protection only should come on, when the power amplifier has to give more current than it can deliver. (electronic fuse)
If in the music is a lot of subsonic, sound, so low you can't hear and your speakers can't produce, this could cause the problem. Normal CD players will cut of all frequencies beneath 20 Hz, but it could be your PC is giving everything from 1 Hz and above.
I would certainly try to play some music over a CD player and check if that would solve your problem. Not sure if that works, what you could do to suppress the sub sonic in the computer music.

I want to connect an iPod to my Marantz SR 5600, what type of cord do I need?


You need a jack-2cinch (differen name is jack to 2 RCA) cable. Jack goes to your iPod's phones output, cinch/RCA to amplifier (connect it to CD or DVD analog section at the back). While playing set volume to 50% to avoid distorted sound. This way you can connect any MP3 player to your amplifier.

Hi. I have a Samsung Sansa MP3 clip-on player. I listen to audio books all the time. I order an audio book online. It comes to me in either a regular CD or an MP3 version (however they manufacture it)....


Normally MP3 players can only play music/audio files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

Playing MP3 Via AUX comes out crackly


Try turning the volume lowwer on the mp3 player and higher on the head unit. The radio is trying to amplify an amplified sound which is why you are getting distortion.

Marantz pm 15 s1 amplifier and marantz sa15 s1 Cd player


There really is no point in  connecting the two components with an optical (=digital) cable, if you didn't want to use the SA-15s DAC- and analog output section you might aswell have bo bought the chiepest one you could find...

To get better sound than the SA-15s analog outputs can provide, you would have to spend a load of money (not as much as for the SA-15 but quite a bit) on a DAC - and the DAC would only work with CDs, you would still have to use the SA-15s analog outputs to listen to SACDs.

So in conclusion:
-Use the SA-15s analog outputs

-If you have other digital sources that you want to use - if you care about their sound quality - you can sell/return the SA-15s, buy the chiepest CD-Player you find (only look and feel matter) and spend the rest on a good DAC. (note: SACDs won't play on this setup)


I'm using a PM-15S1 with a DAC (Apogee Mini DAC, Studio-Equipment, nominal price ~1000$, got mine 2nd hand for 400€ ) myself. A DAC is usually the better choice over an expensive CD-Player - especially if you've got other digital sources (PC, ...) - but you'll probably lose a lot of money if you sell the SA-15, so think about it (IF you're still thinking about it, I realise that your question is 8 months old...)


anyway... have fun with the PM-15, it sure is beauty
