    Hello,

    I have a Marantz SR5200 and it's been running fine for about 12 months (purchased second-hand). Recently, it has begun losing the front channels (L&R simultaneously). Sometimes it will run for a few hours, then just drop the front speakers and all I hear is bass from the Sub. Switching off and on it usually returns, but maybe only for a few minutes or seconds. It sometimes returns itself, sometimes not.

    If I switch to any other format (eg 6 Channel Stereo, Pro-logic etc) I hear the other channels but still no fronts.

    Has anyone else had this issue, or anyone have any ideas? I've seen a couple of threads on other sites which looks like I might not be the only person to see this fault... But no solutions :confused:

    Any thoughts would be appreciated!

    Hi, still having this problem. Seems to happen on both analogue and digital inputs, but works fine on source-direct.

    I've seen a couple of other people posting on other websites with the same problem but haven't seen any solutions. I've dropped it into a local repair company who 'couldn't find the fault'. Seems pretty strange, considering it did it as soon as I brought it home - and also when I took only the amp to a friends setup!!

    I might try another repair company, or just sell it as is... But, if anyone has seen this problem I'd be keen to find out what it actually was!
