Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I need a filter capacitor for a Knight KG-250 integrated amp. It has six leads-six different capacitances provided-I need it to get rid of an awful hum. Do I stand a chance of finding one or shall I junk it? It is a sweet old unit, and cosmetically in fine shape.

Would you be able to post the capacitance's and the voltage ratings?
If you are not able to find the one with the 6 leads, you can try to find them individually and that should work just fine.

How can I connect a subwoofer to this device (denon pma-520) http://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/denon/pma-520.shtml?destination=node%2F14208


Look around for a subwoofer which has speaker level inputs.

My str-dh800 develops an internal hum after being tuned on for a couple of hours


The main power supply filter capacitor is the problem, as the temperature rises the capacitance drops while in use and eventually the audio gets a distinctive 60 cylce audio hum. The part must be replaced in order to correct the issue.

How to replace the electrolytic capacitors on the


If the caps are thru hole rather than surface mounted it should be easy for you.
Make sure cap is properly discharged>>caps are kind of like the 9volt batteries>>> a positive lead and a negitive lead...you need soldering skills.
get some >>solder wick and a soldering iron and some solder... heat up contact point with iron while wick is between iron and lead of cap....wick will soak up the solder.........

My beaitiful Knight KG 250 amp has a loudly humming 6 lead filter cap. Can I ever find a replacement? This amp had a wonderful, rich tone. Thanks, Floydian


Try to search for "filter capacitor" at www.ebay.com

I did a search and found some. Look for the value of your current filter caps and find capacitors with the same value.

Connecting NAD 314 Receiver\ preamp to Carver M-500t to speakers


Dear Tim,
Yes, you can connect your NAD as a preamp to the Carver power Amp.

Connect the NAD's pre-out to the input of the Carver Power Amp. You can then connect the Klipsch speaker to the Carver. Set the gain control on the NAD.

Now you should be able to control all the input and the main volume control from the NAD.

My Fender Bassman 100 amp keeps buzzing.


Part of the power supply is a filtering stage that completes the conversion from AC current to DC. The "cap" is a capacitor that furnishes voltage to help smooth the alternating current that is left from the rectifier stage. These will start to fail over time. While it is a relatively simple repair for anyone that does this for a living, I would not suggest this as your first repair. Expect a parts cost inthe $20 range plus the local labor rate for the entire repair.

NAD T751 constant buzz


It is a known problem with this model. The source of the buzz is the Dsp power supply. On the DSP board itself there is a 2200my\f/16v capacitor that is defective . Usually the capacitor will turn brown and swells due to overheating. Replace it with a higher temp rating capacitor with the same capacitance and voltage specifications.

Buzzing sound thru speaker even with volume down to zero


maybe some filter capacitors of the amplifier has been drying out! check for the main filter capacitors and output capacitors of your amplifier. replace them if necessary with a higher capacitance but the same voltage rating!
