I have a Marantz 2440 that I acquired some time ago and just recently decided to finally hook it up to my 2245 just to see how it worked. The volume controls are a bit scratchy but I do get sound from the 2 rear speakers ( it does drop out and is intermittent depending on the mode ) that are hooked to the main speaker terminals. All the lamps for the VU meters were burnt out so I replace them with new LED’s and they now work. I set the Voltage on the power supply as per the SM at 35 V and the power amp R729/730 adjusted to 20mV as per SM. The only other issue now are the 2 VU meters on the left side ( Front Left/Right speakers ) . The needles are not moving at all. The 2 meters on the right ( for the rear speakers connected to the 2440 ) move with volume adjustment . I have things hooked up as per the SM but how does the 2440 get the signal to the front speakers considering the fronts are connected to the speaker terminals on the 2245 ? Hope that isn't a dump question. I’ve manipulated all the controls on the 2440 to see if the VU meters would move at all but no luck. Am I missing the obvious?
