Hi--A Fluke in changing interconnects this weekend shorted out my receiver and seems to have damaged my Martin Logan Montage speakers. In pulling out a very snug interconnect from the back of my Denon receiver, it lifted out the round metal covering for the input. Next thing I know, a loud hum came through any receiver input I tried. WORST of all, my speakers lost their sparkle--they now sound muffled and the music sounds like it is coming from a transistor radio -- from AM radio. I'm upset, but would appreciate advice about what may have happened to my beloved speakers, and could they be "repairable" at a reasonable cost???? Thanks...
are the speakers fuse protected? check to see if it's simply a blown fuse.
.....it is the amp that is bad and the speakers are fine. Were you changing interconnects with the amp on? Not a good idea, if so.
If they sound muffled with a different amp, a call to ML is in order to see if they are repairable.
You might also try putting the speakers next to one another and just play one, and then just play the other, while using a mono recording to see if they sound the same or if one is damaged.
Hi--yes I did try them with a different amp--and the less-than-stellar sound was still the same, sadly....thanks...
