Marantz PMD-671 in the field part 4...
« on: January 23, 2007, 04:38:40 PM »
Well guys i think it's time for another thread. Chuck, can you lock part 3 homie ;D

I use duracell and powerex.  Now I have 2 battery sleds, one is modified with longer springs for better contact with the AA's.   ALSO if your springs aren't coming into contact as well with the + ends, peel off some of the plastic around the + tip of the battery to expose more metal contact.  Compare a recharge vs alkaline, they cover up everything but the tip on the + ends. 

Thanks for the tips Sanjay! You purchased Chucks old unit I assume. I know he made a modified sled, but I'm not that crafty. I'm going to do some more tests. Doug told me to compare them to Alkalines too. My buddy Ehren has a 671 and uses a DVD battery. Maybe I'll try his sled and see if does the same thing.

Got my ACM a cople of weeks ago, and Doug said he was going to lower the price since he had cut some of his overhead, just checked the Oade sute and the ACM is 1249.00. Good news for those holding out.

Is the battery issue you guys are talking about the same as the putting the shims in the 660? I also occasionally adjust my contacts slightly.
A six pack a day, that's all we ask.

Sounds the same to me. I tried notmal Alkalines last night and had no problems at all. I'll do another test to be sure but I did everything I did with the Powerex batts and had no problems. I took off the battery cover I pushed slightly on the battery sled and nothing happened. I think my problem is the 2700mah batts are bigger then the alkalines and thats what causing the problems. I ordred some 2000mah Powerex AA's to see if those will work. The 2500mah Powerex AA's are even a bit smaller then the 2700mah. I'll keep you guys updated.

Yeah I think that small size difference might cause a problem with the 2700mah. I'll do a test tonight with my 2500mah Powerex batts.

initially i was thinking coax route, but it might be a god idea to do an A/B comparison. this is a little off topic but, isn't it important to run your levels a little more conservative when going 24 bit and then if necessary adjust the gain in post?

yes. i like to peak b/w -6>-3, but the 671 clips rather gracefully.

That's good to hear becuase I run my shit HOT >:D

I did some tests last night with the 2500mah Powerex batts AA's and had no problems. I really think it's the size of the 2700mah that was causing the problems. Knock on wood but I think I may have solved this crap ???

Harrison

Edit: +T to everyone for suggestions and tips!

Edit #2: Those 2500mah batts lasted about 6.5 hours too :o
