    Not specifically a Marantz question, though in this case it is in a 2245.

    Getting a steady, high, static-y sounding noise in R ch. Subtle. It's in the preamp section; separate that out, no noise.

    Noisy 2SA493 or 2SC1000 transistor on the P400?

    Question: Is hfe matching a tone board factor, or can I simply replace the transistors? Or might this noise be a something else?

    Thanks.

    Hey bud,

    Hope those Quadraflex's worked out for you.

    Got a bunch of speakers I am trying to unload (not for free though) if you're interested.

    Also wouldn't mind a trip up there to take a look at your stocks.

    Hope all is well.

    SIncerely,
    Conrad

    Do you want to REALLY look stupid? Call thrift store workers stupid then tell everyone you shop in thrift stores.

    I don't know if you're willing to wait that long, but I will be in your area mid July, and could pick it up then. What kind of cash were you looking for?

    Bi amping is usely better remember that the combined power of the amps. Used to bianp provides is up too four times that of the same combined power in a mono amped system , also when the system clips (all systems clip) in a mono system this effects all frequencies in a bi amp type only the low end , and humens are much more sensitive to the distortion caused at high frequencys this gives you more headroom .

    Hi Bobrown14, I'm new to this site. I have a Crown SL2, are you still looking for one? I thought I'd ask you before putting on Ebay. Jon

    If I had to make a turntable the centerpiece of my livingroom sound system, an idler-wheel deck would be the LAST thing I'd choose.

    The only "sound" an idler-wheel drive turntable has is rumble.

    Hi,

    Tell me about the NS500 woofer? Same spec as my NS690? No mods to my cabinet needed? Price? Shipping ? location....

    I thought the NS500 had 10" woofers....

    My NS690 needs a 12 I think

    So many questions...

    thanks

    Bob

      Yes good sound systems require matching components into a good system this is pretty easy with a large bugged doing it low cost is real hard , but can be done well , that's the challenge
