Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Hi, folks: My AVR 1609 receiver has developed a nagging problem. Whenever volume is set above -15db, the circuit breaker trips at peak volumes (say, explosions in movies or moments of dynamic crescendo in music). This behavior is consistent, whether it's set for Cinema audio, all flavors of Dolby or just plain-vanilla stereo while listening to CDs, the radio or my iPod. I haven't changed any wiring since installing the unit, nor added any power tools or other drains to that 120v circuit that it's plugged into. Can you suggest what might be causing this, and how to cure it other than having it serviced? It's out of warranty, and I can't afford time or cost of sending it to the bench. Any ideas?

Probably the output stage(s) short circuit at peak volume levels, causing the breaker to trip.

Hmmm!..give me the hard wired simple sound systems we had for years without even dreaming about the complexities of SMD components and super complex IC's and multilayer printed circuit boards !
Retro my thinking maybe.....but bacj then many Technicians had jobs with a future that they can no longer get due to the changes in equipment complexity and the reluctance of consumers to engage repair services.
