Question about Marantz CDR633 CD Player Recorder

1 Answer

Our church uses the Marantz Cd 633 Recorder. The problem we are having is that the playback volume of the CD is not high enough. You have to crank up the playback device all the way to hear recording at a listening level. The input is analog. I have the input knob turned all the way to 10. What am I doing wrong? help!

    If you have to use '10' on the input the source must be fairly weak. What do the meters indicate for a level? If they're low on Record they''ll be low on Play.

You have to isolate where problem is. Does a prerecorded disc play at normal volume levels? no? Check fade settings in menu. If yes, substitute another line level analog input from another device right at the recorders back panel. Test recording with that input and verify if recording level display can reach clipping level. If you have that and still have weak playback, again check for an in/out fade function being programmed. Also check volume selection in menu and try different settings, including 0.0. There is also a monitor mode to check input levels without using a test disc. Otherwise have unit checked by a repair business

SOURCE: Hi.I have CD Recorder Marantz

DR-6000 only accepts CD-R audio or CD-R music discs, not the standard CD-R discs. the difference is that the audio and music discs have the OPC formatted differently and they cost a bit more because they include the royalties fee. Standard CD-R discs won't work in this recorder. The correct discs have compact disc "digital audio" logo on them.

SOURCE: what is the best level to have the analog

The input side is the end one adjusts for to ensure good audio capture without distortion.

One it's digital you can play it as loud as you like.

0 dB is the absolute maximum value the Analog-to-Digital-Converter can encode. If "OVER" lights up and stays on more than mometarily you will record a constant maximum level signal with a flat top rather than the nice sinusoidal waveform of real sound. THAT could cause audible distortion at best and severe speaker/amp stress at worst.

Your task is to attempt to set a level that anticipates those loud sounds and leaves a bit of room for the outbursts. CD has so much dynamic range you shouldn't have to worry about losing the signal in the noise floor of the process. Whispering wind and crickets to roaring jet engines on the same recording is possible.

The difficulty in enjoying the entire dynamic range of such a recording is to find an environment that is quiet enough to hear the soft sounds and having speakers capable of reproducing the loudest sounds without adjusting the volume.

There IS another solution. Dynamic compression or peak limiting of the input.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_range_compression

Go on eBay and search for dbx dynamic range compressors. They're available in pro and home-versions.

Some models have both selectable compression and expansion.

I personally own a lot of dbx home audio gear and I recommend it.

We can't get the volume loud enough to hear when we record to a CD


This unit is a pro unit that makes use of XLR type inputs. These are typically at +4 dBm signal level not that of the -10 from RCA type mixing boards. So what you need to do is take the RCA outputs from your source and hook them to a IHF or unbalanced to Balanced converter and they are available from MCM Electronics. This device here should take care of the problem.

Can you operate a marantz cd redorder without remote control?


Any CD recorder should be operational without a remote BUT there may be some menu items that might not be accessible. It strikes me as a poor design when you are required to use a remote to operate a device for basic functions.

Marantz CDR-510: Playback is good , recording is distorted


If this brand of media is new to you and the symptom is unique to it, I'd try a different brand.

Monitoring during record would never reveal media problems as there is no immediate playback after record as on old-school 3-head tape recorders.

I've had similar intermittent problems and I never could find a pattern to it except that it always seemed to be on low-end media. My best advice would be to try to find a pattern in your instance and make a change that avoids it. Then publish what you learned for us.

Good luck.

CDR is not working


have a look on ebay for a cheap working donor recorder as spares are very expensive and very hard to get hold of.
i'm guessing your recorder either doesn't read discs, or it won't eject? which is very common and means either the servo board is faulty or the laser.

The following recorders i know off hand for a donor mechanism are:

MARANTZ DR-6050
PHILIPS CDR-775
PHILIPS CDR-770

if it proves to be just a faulty laser, all 3 of the above have the same laser unit.
if it proves to be a faulty servo board, all 3 have the same servo boards except if you fit one out of a philips model it will show 'PHILIPS CD RECORDER' on the display at power up but will still work nontheless.
obviously if a marantz is found it will show 'MARANTZ CD RECORDER' as normal.

hope this helps.
