Question about Krell KAV-300i 2-Channel Amplifier

2 Answers

Krell kav300i, increasing volume by itself.

After several months not in use, my krell has started to intermittently increase its volume by itself, its worse when cold but cant be trusted when warm either. it can go very loud suddenly risking damaging my speakers. i took a peek inside to see if there was anything obviously blown, but could see nothing wrong or smelling etc, its disconnected now in case it causes damage.does anybody have any thoughts on this?, thanks .malise.

That is an extremely odd problem. I suggest finding a tech in your area who is familiar with the unit, or contacting krell directly.

Check the hot wire going to/at the distributor .. a number of these were crimped on the wires insulation/casing and not on the wire itself,,, it makes intermittent connection.
..This is hard to diagnose,, your symptoms are exactly what this causes... Good luck...

Will the amp play 2 ohm speakers


If your amp has ability to play 2ohms, then it will play. It will play even it dosn't have the provision. It might cause damage to the audio output at certain level if volume level is increased. My advice is to check your amp. or read the user mannual for perfact usage. Thanks

Cant help with diagrams but have you tried "freeze". Its a spray that cools components to see if they are breaking down thermally which does sound a little like it could be possibly. The cold component then rights itself when sprayed for a little while till it get warms again.

Best of luck

Volume increases on its own intermittently


When the volume increased did the display show it doing so as if someone was turning the knob?  I mean did the volume go from like level 15 to 30 or did the unit's level stay constant while the audio volume increased?
Were you alone or sharing the room with a jokester who has a universal remote?
Does this problem occur when the batteries are removed from your remote?
Are you sure the 'volume up' button on the unit itself is disengaging properly after being pressed?

Tv wont stay off


Yes - a new more expensive TV that is not a throw-away model.
The problem is probably in the micro and will continue this intermittently - sometimes hot/cold can have an effect on when it has the problem. It will get worse and it will eventually need to be repaired...
Sorry for the bad news.
