Before you EMail ...

Please Read This!

Because the Marantz Classics site receives so many visitors per day (we're approaching a million and a half views of the index page alone!), I get a lot of E-Mail asking me questions. Sometimes it is overwhelming. Rather than tell people not to email me (which I really don't want to do anyway), I ask that you look at the list below and see if you are going to write about one of these issues.

If you are, please read the stock answer before you write me. I'm happy to expand on anything I can, but if I've already written up the answer on the site, You need to read it on the site; I won't answer questions that are already answered on the site, I just don't have the time. I thank you for your courtesy in reading the FAQ and Tips and Tricks pages first!

  • "My question is..."

    Many general Marantz questions are answered on the FAQ and the Tips and Tricks pages. Please read them before you email.

  • "I have a model (whatever) Marantz that I don't see listed on the site... etc."

    If the model number begins with letters (such as MR, MT, SD, SR, PM, PMD, AT, AV, etc.) then this is a model that was produced after 1980, and so the site does not cover these. I don't know much about these units, I spend all my time learning about the 1980 or earlier models, all of which begin with numbers (2275, 10b, etc.)

  • "I need this/these part(s) for a..."

    Please see the FAQ for a discussion of replacement parts for our classic Marantz units.

  • "I want to buy a..."

    Please see the classifieds page

  • "I want to sell a..."

  • My (insert model here) unit needs repairs...

  • "I need a user's manual..."

    Please see the FAQ page

  • "I need a service manual..."

    Please see the FAQ page and the Links page (Tannenbaum's)

  • "I need a schematic..."

    Please see the FAQ page and the Links page (Tannenbaum's)

  • "I can't figure out how to install new lights/lamps..."

    This is a mechanical issue that varies greatly between the various Marantz products. I can't help you with this; You'll have to look the unit over and figure it out, or else I suggest you take it to a technician. There are some subtle issues (and some not so subtle like the plastic bezels are old and they break very easily!) that a technician will generally be able to deal with that you won't.

If these points don't apply to you, then by all means shoot me an email, and I'll try and help if I can. Just Click Here

But remember: I do not answer emails that deal with the above issues. I just don't have time. Thanks for understanding.
