  1. No sound from analog inputs on Marantz NR1510

    System Setup and Connection
    Hi all, I've bought a new Marantz NR1510 and I have managed to succesfully connect my (older) TV (digital coaxial) and play music over the HEOS app, Spotify, internet radio etc with no problem.

  2. Marantz 7010 flashing red every 1/2 second

    DIY Repair and Maintenance
    My Marantz has recently started to flash the red flash of death, apparently, this flashing relates to the protection circuit, the unit had sat for a few months but I suspect that I've probably shorted a speaker wire when dismantling the setup a few months ago. Any suggestions on where to...
  3. Newbie, Marantz Receiver Static and Protect Mode

    System Setup and Connection
    Hey all, So I bought a Marantz SR3001 second hand but refurbished by a professional who sold it simply because the client decided to just buy another one, and left it with him. It has a brand new power supply. For some reason, whenever I turn it on, though not always, around 8 or 9 times out of...

  8. Marantz AV 7005 front left channel drops out...any thoughts?! At wit's end.

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I picked up a Marantz SR6007 open box for a great price, only to find that the two HDMI outputs cannot support both audio to the second TV in another room and the amp surround sound to the first. I could just get a HDMI splitter, but that would limit me to just one source to the second TV. The...
