Question about Sonic Impact Technologies Super T 1-Channel Amplifier

1 Answer

Lost one channel on the Sonic Impact Super-T amp

I installed some DIY interconnects. One channel would not play. I investigated and found that the RCA plug on that channel had a short. (The screw down connector on the plug's center pin came into contact with the barrel.)

I replaced the interconnect. That channel on the amp no longer works, and it stopped working after the shorted plug was installed. Could the short have caused the problem?

YES!
The output device on that channel will have blown. Look at the output device for that section by following the leads back from the plug, Anything with a heat sink on it is the best bet for the fault.

Who fixes technical pro amps


All these Pro Amps are highly Modular in design internally - the Electronics internally are Modules interconnected - if you are an Electronics Engineer you can order the Module burnt or damaged and fix it yourself - BUT DO NOT TRY THIS IF YOU ARE NOT EXPERIENCED . When bridging outputs always remember to match the Specified Impedance of the Speakers by the manufacturer.

Connecting your computer to an amplifier to play music


Do you want to connect your computer to a amplifier or surround sound, and play music from your computer through the amplifier? If that is the case, you will need to get yourself a cable from your local sound shop. Ask for a "Stereo to RCA" cable. Plug the stereo jack into the back of your computer (where you would normally plug in your desktop speakers) and plug the RCA cables into one of your open channels on your amp. Select "CD" on your amp if you pluged it into the CD channel, and there you go

B&K AVP2000 left channel not working


Yes amps buzz when something gets near them - say a pen or probe and if you know what it is safe to touch a finger! Fortunatly for you the left channel is the same as the right. So if you believe it's the pre-amp work backwards from the where the power amp connects to the pre-amp, going through the pre-amp stage by stage - prodding the parts. Remember a buzz in the right a buzz in the left! No buzz in the left but one in the right fault found!
Ignore the power supply it's nothing to do with that as it's common to both channels.

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.

My Denon PMA-900V integrated amp has distortion in the left channel. When it is cold it is very minor, as it heats up and is played at louder volume the distortion is much worse.


The good news is that it's in one channel, which means you have the right channel parts to compare it with. Now the bad news whatever causing it and it's likely to be a semi-conductor (transistor or IC) has to be replaced. However finding it is easier than you might think. For a start it's going to be hot to touch. And you can get get it to stop being hot, while the amps on, so correcting the fault, for a while. You do this by spraying it with Servisol Super Freezer spray. You have to have the amp running for this. Find the left channel amp and wait while it goes bad. Then spray (one at a time) any part you suspect. If the sound returns to normal, you have found the faulty part! To prove it spray the same in the right channel. That shouldn't change.
You can get the freezer spray from your local electric parts shop (such as Maplin UK).

Did RCA plug short cause channel loss on Super-T amplifier?


Hi...

If the plug in question is an input, No the channel isnt damaged but you'll need a new connector. If it's an output , it may have shorted the amplifier output.

Lots of hum from both speakers


Well folks I solved my problem and the amp has never sounded better. It had always hummed and now it close to stone quiet. The secret was it really never a problem with the amp. The problem was the result of either the pre-amp, interconnect cables, or the combinations of them. The solution came when I added a "drain wire" or ground to the cable I was using. There must have been a ground loop or some in-balance that required a wire to be connected to the earth (-) side at the source on the interconnect and then left unconnected at the other or receiving end of the interconnect. Anyway, no more hum, and the solution took some spare wire and solder.

Gain on one channel stuck at max


Hi there

Check for a dry solder joint on one end of the vol control(earthy end). This will be causing your problem. The pot itself may actually be faulty to. You can always get stuff like that, just got to identify it. Check soldering to the pot first.
