Have been busy on the resistor - found the 47 ohm resistor - has gone open as suggested. Bought new 47 ohm resistor and replaced. Thurned amp on and voila....... many many thanks I cant tell you how greatful I am. I love this amp.

I will keep track of your mods, thought to be honest they are beyond my current abilities.


All the very best!!

Mark

Excellent mate, pleased for you ;-)

Hey Guys,

Me is new here too, been surfing for a while now and the only thing constructive on Marantz PM66 is here.

So I got a Marantz PM66SE, which has a big offset in the right channel and a lot of cracking when turning up the volume. Is someone familiar with this problem and the fixing part?

The other channel sounds better but I have to turn up the volume a lot to get some action.

Stupid me lent it to a nephew (young) which had a big party..... So overheating should probably be the cause.

All help would be great!!!!

Thx & Cheers,
Reinoud
Firstly I would flip the amp over and cut out the removable plate. Have a look around for a dry joint.
Also try the cd player in to a different input (IE AUX) as you may have a dry on the cd input.

LOL

Is that still classed as a PM66

Nice work though. What are the main details of this mate?
