| Tech Board|| Marantz 4430 Repair Options - RaginCajunz on 5/31/15 at 9:12 pm|
I posted this in the music board, but this is probably a better spot. I have a Marantz 4430 receiver that is working, but gives a random and loud pop. Then the music cuts out, sometimes to return immediately, sometimes it triggers a protection mode and has to be turned off for a minute. The guy I...

| Music Board|| Marantz Repair Suggestions? Model 4430 - RaginCajunz on 5/31/15 at 2:56 pm|
I bought a Marantz 4430 last week for a really good price. The seller, who was a bit of a collector, did warn me that it may need a recap, so I understood I was buying as-is. It has played fine, but last night developed a random pop and would either continue playing or go into a protection mode. ...

I rarely drive down Jones Creek but I did so today. I noticed that the Arzi's by Ralphs is now different. The sign was in a hard to read script (especially since it caught me off guard as I flew by) but I did notice the sans-serif text under said "Central American Cuisine."
