Usually that means that the amp was qworking too hard. Have the customer check to be sure that the wires to the speakers are not touching. Also, be sure that the rated impedence for the speakers matches what is required for the amp. If the speakers are rated at 4 ohms and the amp is expecting 8, this will occur as well.

Keep us posted.

Want to tie in 4 8-ohm speakers to a sony TA-FE370 amp: do I do it in series or parallel or as two separate pairs ?


The two separate pairs works best, as this amp is only capable to drive 4 Ohm per side, so if you hook up 2 in parallel per side you will drive 4 Ohm per side and nothing should blow up, hope this helps.

Need connecting wiring for sony am/fm jx 285 connecting to the sony stereo amp ta-ax 285


If you are trying to connect a ribbon cable tuner to a conventional RCA input terminal amplifier, it won't work because the ribbon cable carries the signal output as well as the data for frequency synthesis which is determined by the processor located in the amplifier ( that is supposed to work with that type of tuner), and the data buss for the buttons on the front of the tuner.

For the time and effort to put into a workaround, it is cheaper by far to get a tuner that will work with your amp. If cosmetics are not an issue, brand of tuner will not matter as their outputs are "Line Level" or nominally 1 volt peak to peak..

I have a sony ta-fe370 amplifier. I bought it 5 years ago. 4 years ago it stopped working. I would now like to repair it. The problem is that it turns on and the power light comes on and so does the...


The problem is hard to track down, but fixable. You need to determine if the pre-amp has failed or the power amp. To determine which try this: Connect a device which plays music and turn the volume control fully up! You can sometimes hear the sound better via a pair of headphones. If you can hear any signal or music breaking through, then the pre-amp section is OK. If you can't it might not be. If you can hear faint music then it will be the main power amp to blame. Now because you have lost both channels you must only investigate devices (such as IC's) which have both channels running to them. Some amps have one big power amp IC that does the work. So if that goes it takes the sound with it. Have a look at whatever is on the big heat sink first, that will determine a lot of your future actions.

You can't wire an equalizer to this amp unless you only want to equalize one source, because it doesn't have a tape monitor function.
