Does anybody know what size wattage bulbs are behind the VU Meters on a Marantz 500? I tore the 'ol girl down and it did not have any in the sockets. Meter say's 3.5 volts across the terminals but were they larger or smaller value for brightness etc.

There are several vendors on eBay selling the 8V fuse style lamps for Marantz receivers, but as for the big power meters on the 500, I am not sure. I know these guys have repaired a few and would have the technical manual. They may also have replacement lamps.
Good luck! You lucky bastard! Love those amps.

Found 'em.. She uses 8v fuse type lamps. I just got back from getting them at
a local old electronics store. So Saul had backed off the voltage to the meters to give them that awesome dark blue glow. I'm in heaven.....
P.S. Looking for an mint NAD 7020 Receiver if you run across one...
