Question about Audio & Video Receivers

I have a technics A900 mk2 amp powering two b&W speakers. never had a problem before until i moved the room round and hence the speakers and amp. Now the amp cuts out whenever i turn the volume up past a quarter on the dial. Have tried all combinations of switching the speaker cables round still no joy. Any ideas

Hi guys, I have the same problem and been going crazy looking for a replacement fan motor. This is the problem. THESE LITTLE FECKER fans have micro chips inside and cost over 80 euro. They fail and there are NO replacements anywhere. I have emailed everyone from Technics to Panasonic to Matsushita, who actually used to make the unit. NO LUCK! Soooo frustrating.
Anybody know how to bypass this?

SOURCE: i have a technics A900

To confirm the status of the amplifier to be in order you can use an headphone to test . Now connect a valid input and open up beyond the quarter mark the volume to see if there is any cut off.
If there is a problem the amplifer must be checked, First of all check if the input supply voltage in the phase is lower than in the earlier outlet as a low supply can cut off supply on loading.
If this is correct the speakers must be checked separately for the impedance, if there is any short in the speakers wires or in the connection area.
If there is no visible errors seen the amplifier could have acquired some errors while you moved.
Check once again the input: if the source input is connected to the same input or else a higher input can cut off due to load current. Check with a separate input source.
If these test are good , then you must recheck once again the input voltage settings on the amplifier.
Finally check after opening the covers to fix all connectors to be tight.
Since it worked before it was moved it can be some accidental errors . If not a coincidence of an amplifier failure must be checked only if there is distortion in the output.
Check main +B voltage to the power amplifier.

I'm running two sets of speakers thru a gfs3 powered by a gfa 5300. the main speakers are on 1, the second room pair on 2. the speakers on 2 will only play when the main speakers are engaged. i recently...

Do you mean Adcom? That detail matters.

That would mean you're trying to run two rooms with paired mono speakers and a different channel in each room. MMmm, okay.

It's a 2-channel power amp and it isn't really designed for the probable very low imedance you're providing with paired speakers on each terminal. And it has no ability to turn either channel on or off short of denying it a program input on either channel.

Perhaps if you ran one speaker from each channel into each room (impedance permitting), you would have two rooms with traditional 2-channel audio.

Better sound through bose speakers?

If you have the money to plunk down for a Bose Acoustimass home theater speaker system, I'm sure you will be quite pleased. Of course, as you indicated, appropriate placement of the speakers is important. Still, I'm sure you will find that a properly placed Bose Acoustimass speaker system will fill your room with high quality sound, substantially better than Onkyo's stock speakers placed equally well.

I own a Technics home theater system, which I initially purchased to use in my family room. Yet, when I listened to a Bose Lifestyle system (powered by Bose Acoustimass speakers), I could have nothing less. The Bose system went in the family room, where everyone could enjoy it. I put the Technics system in the bedroom, where it is rarely used.

Technics SA GX910 ... powers up fine, meters and displays fine ... no sound (already checked jumpers, tape moniter, mute) light on volume control not on and headphones don't work

there is a problem in the low voltage power supply internally,or the speaker protection has kicked in.
unplug all speaker wires,and if the amp comes on,there is a shorted speaker wire somewhere.

Denon AVF988 to power amp to whole house speakers

jbell302, Check both remote spkers for operation from the A spks output if good, switch B remote spks to A main connect & main A spks to the B remote connection on the Denon spks outputs . Most amp sources do not like different ohm spks types & different cable or spks A-B. lenghts, because this makes up to resistances problems, making the amp to work harder & understanding what is going on. THE AMPS PROTECTION CIRCUIT IS AT ALERT & TRIES TO BALANCE THE RESISTANCE VOLUME. Best move is to try use the same spks. lenght & a higher qauge wire; 12.14.18qa. to better balance the output volume! All matching spks. pairs would help alot as well!

My technics su-a900 mk2 keeps blowing the internal fuse

Sorry but it sounds like a problem with the power supply unit.
Look for any 'burnt looking' resistors on the printed circuit board and that should give you a major clue!!

Technics SH-AC300 Connection to Power Amp & Pre-Amp

The problem is, that your SH-AC300 needs an amp with 5.1 input (but no decoder). For this purpose technics delivered SA-AX710.
So if you'd like to use your current equipment it would be impossible.
The only option is for you to buy 2 more Power Amps (SE-A900S), so that each of 3 amps would take care for one part of music. (one for FL, FR; one for RL, RR; and one for sub and center).
Another option is for you to buy SA-AX710. Then all the problems would be solved with it.

No output to Zone 2 from preout to 2nd power amp for second room speakers

OK, From what I am understanding is that you both are trying to uilize a digital audio source (HDMI cables are digital audio only) and hence this is the problem. You can only use an analog audio source (connection) to utilize the audio output to zone 2. A simple soultion is to use the analog audio in conjuction with the digital. Connect the digital (HDMI, Optical, Coax) to the main zone and the left and right audios to zone 2.

Technics SA-DA10 Receiver-no sound

Most of these problems are rooted in a failed power amp module.

Technics SA-DX940

overload, usually means that is overloaded. i've had the receiver for about 4 or 5 years now and never had problems with it. It was sitting ontop on my tv for those 4 or 5 years, and i haver noticed it untill just recently, (when i bought a new tv and i had to get a stand for it, and i had to stick the receiver in it)that is runs very hot, very quickly; Maybe that is the problem you are having now, that the thins is older and maight be able to handle it as it id b4. Maybe you made some changes to your set up: new speakers, etc.
