    I need to get some feet for a 1250 and if anyone knows the approximate dimensions and the screw size that attach them it would save me some time in my search for replacement ones.
    Thanks in advance.

    I'm assuming it is the same as the 1200. I'm not going to be a lot of help, but I just got a 1200 and put it in a WC-1 case. That eliminated the need for feet on the unit itself. But I did investigate the four threaded holes that appear to be in the position where you would attach feet. I was surprised that they were smaller than normal screws for Marantz feet. I found matching screws, but (sorry) can't remember exactly what they were. But I do remember that small U.S. size machine screws fit - maybe a #6. And I don't know if the plastic feet that Marantz used on most of their units were also used on the 1200/1250, but I'll bet you could get four of them and use the smaller screws with washers and they would work. You can get the feet at AMK products here:

    If you go this route, be sure your screws are not too long. They might contact some of the electronics inside the unit if you go more than roughly 1/8" into the unit.

    A couple of caveats: my 1250 is unassembled and I think this is the correct foot and I don't know if the correct feet were in place when I received it. It appears to be 1"x3/4". Images follow:

    Thanks, I appreciate the info.
    I ordered some Peavey small rubber feet off Amazon for 7 bucks. Look like they are just the ticket.

    I suspect they'll be the same feet as most other 22xx, 23xx, 10xx, 11xx and 12xx receivers.

    I believe there's a guy on 'that auction site' who sells very proper-looking reproductions with the correct screws.
