    Plastic Clip???

    I don't think I have ever seen a plastic clip on top of a Marantz Amp -

    Are you sure that is not just something to secure the Tag?

    Can we assume you bought this an now have it at home? Or are you planning to buy it and wondering how to get the Tag off?

    I already purchased, just curious what the purpose was.

    If you google search pm6005 images, you see most pictures contain it on the top of the unit.

    Thanks

    Hummmm.... you are right, but it is a complete mystery to me. Can you see anything below it, it is perhaps holding some wires in place?

    Mine has the same. I sent an email inquiry to the seller about it. I'll report when he answers.

    Mine's got one too. I'd thought it was a little hatch sort of thing so that a technician could access something inside the amp without having to take it apart but on closer inspection it looks like the metal grill of the amp's top continues underneath it.

    Hi, sorry to resurrect an old thread but my amp has this clip also.
    It is a copy of the grille and it just sits in the grille.
    It seems it has no purpose whatsoever.
    Did anybody find out its purpose?
