Got it in today, plugged it up popping and cracking in the volume and balance controls, and no equalizer function. Went thru it, blew the entire board out, then detoxited the pots and anything else moving. Blew it out again. Working good as new now. Now I have that warm sound that everyone else has looking for.
A perfect companion for my Polk RTi4's (1st gen.)

This is a great amplifier with massive aluminium front and really nice and powerful sound. It features MM *and* MC phono inputs.

One of the last pre-Philips units, with genuine Marantz quality and sound still very present here. Made in Chestworth, USA.

And it even looks different !

I think you will find it is made in Japan.

re: PM700

DC offset pots are not mentioned in the service manual.
They are r779 (L) and r780 (R) 20kOhm located at the back, close to the transformer.

Bias are r741 and r742.
Rx39 and rx40 adjust the LED vumeters. This is reflected in the manual.

I found this to be a really great sound amp, well constructed an with a different look. Nice to see the heat pipe in action.

Cheers

Thanks for the review bruv! I just purchased one of these on Ebay to replace my JVC- R-S77. I like the fact that it has a MM/MMC phono selector. How's yours holding up?
