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.

The windshield wipers on my 1994 S 300 mercedes diesel work intermittently then quit and start up again seems like they are ready to crash for good. how do i repair so they work when needed?


1) It is normal for the wipers, in rain sensor mode, to cycle once upon startup.

2) In rain sensor mode, the wipers should be intermittent with the cycles increasing as the volume of moisture increases on the windshield. The speed will increase until it reaches the continuous slow speed of position 2 on the switch. It will not increase to the fastest speed which is position 3 on the switch. You have to go to the fastest speed by manually rotating the switch to postion 3. Doesn't seem like a design flaw to me.

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

Toshiba volume increases by itself


yesterda i ve repaired a laptop with the sam problem. i hav done all reinstallation of windows and drivers.
but this is very funny when i found that the inbuilt key of laptop volume control was pressed automatically so when i try to decrease volume it increases automatically.
so please check for your touchpad drivers and check that any key is not jammed in laptop/desk top.

Volume increases on it's own intermittently, takes itself off of mute.


Let's eliminate ghosts and goblins.

As a test, locate the remote control window on the front of the unit, if it has one. Set it up to watch or listen to something then cover the remote window on the unit with a small piece of cardboard. If you can't locate its infrared receiver for the remote just cover the entire front of the unit with something sufficiently opaque to block your remote. Try to operate it with th remote to be sure the unit can't see it.

If the expected problem never comes back you have a stray signal from something else in the environment getting interpreted as a 'volume up' command. Then look around for other remotes being used, wireless devices, use your imagination. I used to have a remote-controlled space heater and my TV would sometimes shut off if I used the remote. Does the unit have line-of-sight to a nearby house? Maybe something next door (garage opener?) is interfering.

If it still happens and there are no other infra-red devices nearby you have a ghost.

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?
