Marantz SR2285B Receiver : Phono Stage Model Response

Posted 19th March 2013 at 06:02 AM by rjm

Mid-range 1970's stereo receiver.

I was curious to find out a) what the phono circuit was, and b) how tight the RIAA response might have been.

The answer is "four transistors" and "pretty damn good", respectively.

We are impressed. These Japanese engineers knew a thing or two. I would like to see some of these old circuits resurrected as discrete phono stages with modern components to see just what they are capable of.

X-reg voltage stabilizer LTSPICE file

I did up the X-reg circuit in LTSpice.

Results shown below, together with the LTSpice .asc file you can use to play around with this yourself.

First attached image shows FFT for the rectified DC (green), reference voltage (red) and X-reg output (blue) for the designed-for 10 mA output (top) and a more punishing 100 mA (bottom).

Second image shows an LTSpice screengrab for the LT1086 with bypassed adj pin under comparable loading. Input voltage in blue, output in green. This is a reasonable approximation of a "good" IC regulator.

Last image shows a plot of the exported LTSpice FFT data for the X-reg and the LT1086-12V (Cin 1000uF, Cout 100uF) both at nominal currents of 10 mA. The LT1086-12V is a reasonable substitute for a generic LM7812, i.e. a "bad" IC regulator.

A typical op amp will have sufficient PSRR to mop of the residual noise from the bypassed LT1086. The fixed LT1086-12V, on the...

RIAA Equalization Curve

For reference and experimentation.

This excel worksheet will provide you with reference data that you can overlay and compare with the measured/simulated response plots of actual phono stage circuits.
