I have a new accoustic solutions hi fi amp (bought from ARGOS) which has a sky+ box, DVD and mp3 (ipod dock) attached, it worked fine for 2 days but now has started a high pitched whining in the right speaker. I have tried every lead with every piece of equipment in every output and it happens everytime! This is the 2nd amp as the 1st time the problem occured I though the amp was at fault and replaced it!
Try switching power amp output's to the speaker's and see if it still does it if it still does it the it's the speaker ,disconnect every thing from the input's of the power amp if it stop's start pluging thing's in one at a time ,process of elimination best of luck

2 channel power amp
you will need additional equipment for this beast to work right.
1. you need a pre-amp, all audio connections go into the preamp which control sorces, volm, bass and treble.
2. out from the preamp into the power amp and out to your speakers
3. you can freak it if you have an 1/8" stereo to RCA stereo plug in this caee you can play your ipod, phone or mp3 player thru this amp using your input device (ipod, phone or mp3 player ) like a preamp to control volm, bass and treble.
I had a few systems that did this but once I performed the latest firmware update it fixed everything.
If the combus on the ipod gets shorted then it will also do this. You have to disconnect the Cat-5 cable from the dock, unhook the ipod, reconnect the cat-5, then reconnect the ipod.
I would contact your installer and have him update the system for you, failing that re-do your connections on the dock. If that does not work you may have a deformed connector on the ipod that shorts the combus (had that once on a Russound system). Or a defective dock
I have the same amplifier, a Sky + HD box, an LCD TV an surround speakers. We wont go into the Wii, PS3 and PC also hooked up. Essentially the best way to go (whatever you connect up) is to split the video and audio signals.
Sky: The Sky box has an audio outputs (left and right channel) found at the back of the box. You get some twin audio cables, plug into the back of the Sky box and the other end into the Kenwood Amp (for example we use Video 1). This means that the sound from Sky can be found on Video 1 on the Amp.
You take the video signal (picture) from Sky using a SCART cable and put into the back of your panasonic TV. This does mean that you can watch a picture without the sound and listen without a picture. The Amp remote controls the sound, the Sky / TV remote controls the picture.
You may need to tinker with some settings on the Amp, for example on the front of the Amp you will find a source button, toggle through the 3 or 4 options to give you the right sound. But essentially that should be it. The same process is used for any other things you want to add, like a DVD player, a games console and so on.
I have a question first... are the 901's amplified by a separate amp as they should be in a multi-channel (non-stereo) setup?
Better yet read the following then decide if you have iy set up right to begin with. If so, I'd just treat the Ipod or Mac as auxilliary inputs on the receiver. :
I wrote most of this for a different receiver, but if you account for minor differences to your receiver this will work just fine. There's good news and bad news. The bad news you need a separate amp because a multichannel receiver with Bose 901's attached as recommended for a standard stereo receiver will only sound right in STEREO on stereo analog material. The other speakers around the room are not designed to receive its Active Equalization and if you engage your Tape Monitor you will NOT BE ABLE TO HEAR DIGITAL sources at all. Tape Monitor is for analog stereo material only and on modern AV receivers it disables any digital inputs so you really can't use the Tape Monitor circuit or attached devices for modern digital sources. However, you can still employ the various DSP options to spread 2-channel analog source material around the room. I do. The good news. I have a setup similar to what you want to do and it works great! A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers. You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W). Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels. ** Front Pre Out (or one of your analog Tape Outs) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN. Attach the 901's to the new amp, set its volume to Max and run through your receiver's speaker level setup. Write off the Tape Out as an input if you use it to extract the Front L&R channels. DO NOT monitor it or you'll chop the 901's out of the signal path AND kill any digital source audio in the receiver.
That is a strange problem you have indeed. The amp switches automatically from one input to the other, with default to input 1. You say the source sound dips low, is this a source from another integrated amp, where the AMP100 is working as a zone 2 device? . Are you using it as a zone 2 amp, and plugging other devices in the zone 2 area? and lastly, are you using auto on functions? Let me know, and we may be able to figure it out for you.
If it is new, then it may be worthwhile swapping it over for another by the supplier of the amp
Instead of connecting each device (sky&dvd rec.) to the TV separately, I would simply hook up the sky to dvd recorder (connect the sky output and dvd recorder input), and then connect the dvd recorder output (must be called "play out") to one of the available recorder inputs (which could be a dvr, an empty tape input, etc)of your amp. However, you'll still have to establish a feedback between your dvd recorder and your amp. Therefore, if the dvd rec. supports it, you'll have to hook up the rec.out, which is on your amp.,to rec.in on your dvd recorder. After all these audio connections, you will only need to make a video connection among the sky, dvd rec., and tv. Get a video cable to hook up the sky video output to your dvd recorder's video input, then do the same thing between the dvd recorder's tv output and tv.
The sound delay would not be caused by hooking amp up but must be a software problem in sky box. Try to get an off air station with a antenna and see if the problem persists.The dvd recorder should see your sky box output first then out from recoder to tv.Then use tv audio out to amp,or tv audio out to amp.
