discrete components, is adopted in the pre amplifier
and power amplifier. It is a high-speed amplifier
using the latest technology developed for the
higher-grade amplifiers.
hdam-sa3 techNologY
Basic
operatioN
The V/I converter circuit, which is the key block
of the current-feedback pre-amplifier and power
amplifier, is equivalent to the HDAM-SA3 ampmodule developed for such higher-grade models as
the SC-11S1.
cd direct BuFFer ampliFier
adVaNced
coNNectioNs
An input buffer amplifier exclusive for CD is mounted
near the CD input jacks. This is a high-speed buffer
amplifier made with discrete components, which
avoids interference between right and left channels
and can send the signals to the pre-amplifier with
very high fidelity.

improVed momeNtarY curreNt
supplY aBilitY
trouBleshootiNg
It is generally known that the sound quality is not
necessarily the same even if amplifiers have the
same specifications. Marantz considers the cause
to be the power to drive speakers. The power
amplifier of this unit has the ability to momentarily
supply current of 25 A or more to drive speakers
strongly.
short-poWer-liNe laYout
others
For strong momentary current supply, a short
power-line layout unifies the power circuit and
output stage of the power amplifier section. This
layout allows connecting the large-current lines via
the shortest route while to arranging the left and
right channels symmetrically.

As a phono equalizer amplifier for MM cartridges,
a constant current-feedback PHONO equalizer of
quality equal to that of the higher-grade model SC11S1 is used.
douBle-shielded toroidal
traNsFormer
The unit is equipped with a toroidal power
transformer to minimize vibration and leakage flux
specific to the transformer. Especially to reduce
leakage flux, which affects sound quality, the
periphery is double-shielded, using a core ring and
a short ring.

BI-WIRE connection is a technique for improving sound quality. It connects speaker systems and an amplifier,
using two speaker cables; one for mid-to-high range speakers and another for bass speakers.
It eliminates the influence on a mid-to-high range speaker unit due to back electromotive force generated
by the bass speaker unit.
For BI-WIRE connection, a speaker system must comply with the BI-WIRE connection specifications. Refer
to the instruction manual supplied with the speaker system.
Connect a mid-to-high range speaker via the SYSTEM A terminals and a bass speaker via the SYSTEM B
terminals. Then set the SPEAKER knob on the front panel in the A+B position.
The REMOTE CONTROL jacks are for connecting components that are capable of remote control (D.BUS
jacks) such as a Marantz CD Player or DVD Player. This enables these other components to be operated
with the remote controller included with the unit. The unit comes with the system remote controller that
can operate the basic features of Marantz CD Players and DVD Players. Here, a brief explanation of how to
control the unit and CD Player using this remote controller is provided.
As shown in the illustration below, connect the REMOTE CONTROL “IN” jack of the CD Player to the
REMOTE CONTROL “OUT” jack of the unit, and set the CD Player switch to “EXTERNAL”.
Both this model and CD Player can be operated by pointing the remote controller at the receptor of this
model.

at poWer oN
For about 8 seconds after the power is turned on,
the protective circuit is activated muting the sound
to give the amplifier circuits time to stabilize. Once
the amplifier circuits stabilize, the protective circuit
releases and audio is enabled.
iN the eVeNt oF oVercurreNt
The protective circuit is activated if current exceeding
a certain level is detected, which can happen if
excessive signal flow is input to the amplifier or if
the unit is connected to a speaker system of less
than 4Ω impedance. The protective circuit is also
activated if a speaker cable shorts.
In these cases, the MUTE indicator flashes, and
the volume is automatically reduced. Approximately
15 seconds later the protective circuit is released,
therefore the volume needs readjusting to continue
normal use.
Moreover, if the overcurrent continues, the amplifier’s
power shuts OFF and the STANDBY indicator above
the POWER ON/OFF button flashes.
iN the eVeNt oF ampliFier trouBle
The protective circuit is activated and the power is
automatically shut OFF if an abnormality is detected
in the power circuit. The same happens if the main
fuse inside the amplifier blows. In these cases, the
STANDBY indicator above the POWER ON/OFF
button flashes.
In cases as mentioned above, immediately
disconnect the power cord, and contact the place of
purchase, your nearest Marantz dealer, our customer
service center, or our repair service center.
Basic
coNNectioNs
Causes
The power cable is disconnected.
The protective circuit is activated if the temperature
of the main-amplifier section rises above a certain
level, which can happen if the amplifier is continually
used with excessive signal flow being input into
it. The protective circuit is also activated when
the set operating temperature is exceeded, which
can happen if the vents on top of the amplifier are
covered, or if the amplifier is installed on a cramped
audio rack. In these cases, the MUTE indicator
flashes, and the volume is automatically reduced.
Approximately 15 seconds later, the protective
circuit is released, therefore the volume needs
readjusting to continue normal use.
If the temperature does not sufficiently lower
within a certain amount of time after the protective
circuit activation, the power shuts OFF and the
STANDBY indicator above the POWER ON/OFF
button flashes.
Basic
operatioN
Phenomenon
This unit is equipped with a protective circuit to
protect the amplifier circuits and speaker system
against damage.
If the protective circuit is activated, the sound is
instantly muted.
In this case, either the MUTE indicator flashes, or
the STANDBY indicator above the POWER ON/OFF
button flashes.

In case of trouble with this component, first check the following before calling for service.
What seems to be a serious malfunction is often due to a simple operation mistake.
If the trouble is not fixed after making the following checks, contact the place of purchase, your nearest
Marantz dealer, our customer service center, or our repair service center.

The protective circuit is also activated if ultrabass signals that exceed the base signal range
settings are input. In this case, the MUTE indicator
flashes, and the volume is automatically reduced.
Approximately 15 seconds later, the protective
circuit is released, therefore the volume needs
readjusting to continue normal use. If excessive
ultra-bass signal input continues or if DC voltage
is detected due to trouble with the amplifier, the
power shuts OFF and the STANDBY indicator above
the POWER ON/OFF button flashes.
