These amps are very sensitive to speaker impedence . Altough the back of the amp says 4-8 ohm the manual states speakers below 8 ohm may cause the protection to activate which shuts down power to protect the output stage shown by the mute light blinking . No amp should be run at full power ,even if your speakers are 8 ohm you are overdriving the amp this way causing it to trip the protection .Turning the bass tone up or using loudness will cause similar issues as will low sensitivity speakers , ideally you need 8 ohm and 87 db watt per metre and above. I run mine with Polk TSX 110 which are 8 ohm 89 db w/m and at eleven o'clock on the dial is more than adequate .

Written on: 24/07/2007 by Justified Soul (1 review written)

The amp is impressive for the money, and as a front room system component, it will not disappoint I think. My gripes come because I'm using it in my studio to monitor my mixes etc, and clean sound is paramount. Also worthy of note, I'm now using Kef Coda 7's instead of my old JBL Control 1's.
All in all, a worthy budget hifi amp… Read Full Review

“I've teamed my Marantz PM-4200 audio amplifier with...”

Written on: 28/03/2006 by beemer (7 reviews written)

I've teamed my Marantz PM-4200 audio amplifier with the higly acclaimed Marantz CD5400 CD player. The detail is excellent! The bass has plenty of weight, and the treble has a definite sparkle. With only 30w RMS per channel, don't be put off. The PM-4200 seems to have no problem with floor-standing speakers. My Wharfdale Diamond 9.4 sound great, and the amp never seems to be outmatched.

This amp definitely punches above its weight; so in conclusion, if you are on a tight budget like myself… Read Full Review

The Marantz pm-4200 amplifier looks nice, sounds lovely. Got it running 2 B&W DM110's and a pair of Tannoy mercuries. Really thumps out the bass, sounds good for big orchestral pieces… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/01/2002 by Peter. (1 review written)

My Marantz pm-4200 amp is teamed up with a sony CDPXE520 and a pair of Monitor III's. the system sounds superb ... the amp is capable of transmiting every single bit of information to the speakers without a single bit of distortion along the wires (qunex). the speakers display everything that the amp is putting out to them as well... the bass reflex copes with the low end bass with the 13cm cone keeping a clean crisp sound all through the range... over-all this is proberbly more of a review for… Read Full Review

Glad you are using the pm4200 but would advise a marantz cd5400 not trying to put down your sony unit but i had a technics cd player which i replaced with the cd54oo to go with my pm4200 and could not believe the difference there is more detail and a definate sound improvement im not saying that your system is no good but i feel you would be suprised at the benifit from using the marantz cd5400... in conclusion i just would love you to enjoy the benifit im getting and believe you are serious about your system or you wouldnt be using the pm4200... thanx enjoy your music

you are right it so happened that i am using Marantz PM4200 with Sony CDPXE570 a player with cd text and matched up by a Energy C-100 speakers...your reviews are the same as mine.Glad to have this stereo set up with a phono input bonus to my Pioneer TT Rondo 2000 sounds really exciting!But i will try Marantz cd 5400 to enjoy more the amps.
