Repair / Help / Marantz 2220 issues
« Last post by DristOban on May 09, 2021, 05:22:58 PM »
Hi All,

I have a of couple marantz 2220 and 2226. The 2220 had not been set up in a while with moving and having a kid. I got it out the other day and started giving it a little TLC to use on my work bench as I am working on a few other items and just wanted something small and great sounding to test with. However as soon as I plugged it in I had a hum and high volume level coming out of the left speaker. It seams to to at about 60-75% volume. If you turn the amp up over that it evens out with the right speaker and continues to increase in volume. I tried the second set of speaker outputs and I get the same results. Tone, Balance, and all other controls work but still unable to turn down the left channel. I popped the cover but nothing stuck out (no leaking caps or burned resisters that I could see). I am sure it would benefit from being fully recapped but not sure that is the issue.

Any ideas?

Thanks for posting...  As with many of us, I visited Opus One many times back in the day...  Visited his Oakland store a few times also...  I had lunch with him a few times while he was practicing medically...  His practice was on Carson Street on the Southside...  Intense individual, but a very nice person & did care about people & helping them...  He was very genuine... 

Sorry to hear...  Sending prayers to his family...

George

Interesting.   I'd never heard of any of that.

It's hard to tell from the written word, but I think Emp was being facetious calling him a heretic.   At least I hope he was.

Yes-that Roger Russell.  Right or wrong, he always based his opinions on science and research.
