    Marantz PM-KI Pearl Lite repair

    This thread is the follow up of a discussion started by myself in a thread about different speaker cables lengths because I wanted to know if that could be the case, in my ignorance. I don't want to keep polluting that thread so I start this one. The last intervention by @restorer-john, which...

    Marantz Replaces AKM AK4458 DAC with Texas Instruments DAC IN SR6015, SR7015 AND SR8015

    According to Marantz, "All units with the serial # ending in 70001 or higher have the TI DAC [most likely the PCM1502A DAC found in the Denon AVRs]. The only exception is the AV8805A pre-pro. That now uses a DAC made by ESS". I hope this helps new AVR customers decide if they still want to buy a...

    Preamp quandary for 2.1 or 2.2 stereo

Source is a Windows tablet running Foobar2000 + EqualizerAPO through a Meizu Hifi Pro dongle - prefer this to previous setup of Chromecast Audio...

    Connecting new 2021 Node to Marantz SR6015

    Hi, I just got the new Node and connected it via L/R RCA to the Marantz SR6015. To get the highest sound ROI should I be using L/R RCA to the Marantz or Digital Coax or Optical? I read in another forum some recommending out from Node to the L/R pre-amp on the Marantz and sub out to pre-amp too...

    Is the marantz 7705 terrible?

    So I have the chance to buy a marantz 7705 preprocessor for $1300 to upgrade from my current denon 3400 which is showing it’s age a bit. I know that Amir said that the 7705 is all but absolute garbage, but in real world use, is it? I’ll have it running a 7.2.4 system in a 15X13X8 room. I have 2...

    Any utility in manually adjusting Audyssey MultEQ? Do you think my frequency response improved?

    I have an older Marantz SR7002 which has Audyssey Multi EQ built in. Using the generic mic and auto calculated filters and then comparing it with REW and my UMIK-1 it gives me horrendous corrections in areas that certainly do not need correction. It looks like this is quite an old version of...

    Hello friends, after years of faithful service, my Arcam started loosing its edge and the time of upgrade has come. I am looking for something that can be considered an end-game unit and higher-end Marantz models are on my radar for quite a bit. I am pleased with their sound and the look alike...

    Hi ya'll, This is a cry for help... I've been wasting so many hours on reading, comparing and going absolutely all over the place picking up audio equipment... Being an engineer and a nerd sure doesn't help :( Also being a business owner and spending so much time on this instead of actually...

    What's my weakest link? What's the cheapest way to get >90% 'of the way there'?

    I have a Marantz SR7002 receiver that I connect via a semi long 10ft HDMI to my laptop which runs Tidal in "Exclusive mode" for two channel listening. I am just wondering what people think would be the 'weak link' in my setup (I have high sensitivity DIY speakers and two DIY subs set up very...

    I feel like HEOS is overlooked!

    Hi all, I have now owned 3 Denon / Marantz receivers with HEOS (3500, 3600, and SR6012). I always discounted it as a solution for the lazy or as a Sonos replacement, never thinking it was up to snuff for my “serious” (lol) listening practices. I previously used a Chromecast Audio into a DAC...
