My problem was slow disc reading after being powered up for a long period. I decided it was heat related. Both my 2002 vintage machines do it.
I suspect most have worse problems, I have disconnected the MC top board and only run two channel. So a lot less heat is generated.
Sent one to Marantz service and they supposedly replaced whole transport, repaired the tracking circuits, and installed updates.
I looked and all I could identify is the addition of ONE 1K resitor. The player does not exhibit slow reads as much as before.
But I installed a new Tent Clock circuit in the other player and it now reads faster also. Adding a Tent clock to the "repaired" player did not seem to effect read times.
Nutshell, the Tent clock was 100.00, Marantz charged 200.00. Both seemed to help the player read the data easier if on for a couple hours. But both player read all my SACD's prior to changes.
For some reason, it took longer to read the CD's, the SACD's always read fairly quick.
If you only listen to two channel, you might consider unhooking the power and data cables going to the top board. There is a lot of heat being generated by all those discrete components.
