Default marantz cd player captive mains lead modding

Hi everyone,

How do you internally wire a Marantz ki sig cd player with an after market high grade iec kettle lead or alternatively ad an Iec inlet to the back of the unit for connection. If I had to solder it internally it has 2 wires brown [live] blue [neutral] what do you do with the earth wire from the mains cable?

Please note that I am a complete novice when it comes to soldering etc.

You could do this internally and add a socket to teh back if you didn't mind putting a hole in the case.

By far the easiest way would just be to add an in-line socket to the back as sold at Russ Andrews

I think this only uses screw terminals too so no need for solder!

I have done this to both my KI cd and amp.

Buy yourself a clip in IEC socket.
Remove the original cable including the plastic grip.
You will now be left with a cut out.
After cutting out the difference slot in the IEC socket.
Now solder the live and neutral wires.

Dont wire in the earth, the chassis is a ground plane for both the analogue and digital circuits.

Hope this helps.
