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.

How do i turn the mute off on my su-g90 with no remote


If increasing the volume doesn't do it then you will need a remote I think. You could go for a universal if you can't get an original.

Hi, i have a Denon PMA 735 R amplifier which shuts down when volume increases suddenly.


Sounds like you have output transistor problems. Does it have a red protection light that comes on when it shuts down? If it does it will need serviced.

Yesterday i have bought a brand new CD 740 A and 650 C. Both the things where fixed with Bose AM5. It sounds really good. when the volume is increased more than half, the loudness too increases. is there...


Please note that you volume control increases in a logarithmic scale, in simple words it increases in a doubling scale eg: 2,4,8,16,32,64------------. So if your half volume is 16watts per channel the next increase is 32 and the next 64 so on. So don't be surprised if after half volume it suddenly starts getting very loud. There is nothing you can do about it.

Whichever direction I turn the volume control knob (clock or anticlock wise), the volume always increases. I cannot turn the volume down


There's a endless volume knob who has contacts to inform if the volume increase or decrease.
It's normally produce noise and the circuit understand it like a data.
You can put a 1uF/50V capacitor in the each of 2 soldering points of the volume control to the ground (there has 3 points. One is ground and the others are live).

In my Amp when I increase the volume - the Amp will deliver full volume before it reaches the point 2 to 3 and above that it delivers very light increment of volume increase but with much no-clarity music....


This sounds more like the volume control is defective. Please update this with the make and model so more details can be provided. Different models use different techniques for volume control and the described behavior will can be caused by many types of defects depending upon the circuit.

Thanks,
Dan

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

Hello, after plugging on Ipod through my preamp hooked through my krell kav 300 integrated amp I heard a super loud noise and lost power. I examined the fuse and it looks fine. What do I do?


Sounds like the volume was way up when the iPod turned on. iPods are DC and cause a sudden thump through the speakers when they power on.
If the fuse is not blown, there may be another fuse you have not seen. Most amps have three to five fuses especially a 150watt/channel like the Krell.

I have a C28 Preamp that ran up the volume by itself on the left channel. It increased until the limiter on the amp took over. It was playing just fine until this. Is it possibly a fluke or something to be...


Dirty potumeter ( knob ) first guess Pre amps are like effects, no real amplifiction more delay and line level input then anything. Hench the limiter kicking in
