    Look back at the pic in post #17. It shows the snubber installation as well as the jumpers.

    Hi folks, I had a closer look a the power switch today and began to "tin" the connections when I realised that my switch has 4 WIRED contacts. (please excuse the mess of the wires, that I will sort later!)

    The other switches I have seen only have 2. So my question is, which 2 points to I solder the cap & resistor to?

    Thanks

    Those solder connections look pretty burned up. All of the connections good? I'm thinking it has been replaced in the past and they didn't put a snubber back in. At any rate, I think you could put the snubber between the. brown and yellow. Hopefully someone will confirm.

    Someone has definitely been in there. I would replace the switch as well while you're at it.

    UPDATE

    Well folks, today I got the snubber cap and resistor installed and voila! The pop is gone! :D

    I would like to thank you all for the help and guidance in this post.

    Strange Marantz didn't install a snubber at the factory...

    Cheers!:music:
