Question about NAD 712
I have owned my NAD 7140 for forever, it's been a great little receiver but the Station Preset memory tends to lose the saved stations from time to time. The power cord is never unplugged and it works fine otherwise.
How does one fix this? Is there a battery inside that needs replacement or a capacitor that holds the station memory alive? I have some skills with electronics and can use a DVM etc but so far have never bothered to open the case to explore, as we just reset the station memory and keep on listening!

Use a 3.5mm stereo jack to RCA connector lead.
Connect this to the AUX input on the back of the 7140, and away you go. Get the lead as an accessory from just about any electronics hobby store.

The clicking is the sound of a bad relay. A relay is an electrical switch that opens and closes under the control of another electrical circuit. There is no user solution for this. You'll have to take it to an electronics repair shop (~$150) or dump the whole unit.

A 712 is not set up to use an Ipod USB dock. You can buy a dock that will use RCA jacks into an old stereo - Apple sells them, others too. Then the Ipod sits up and you can look at it. Or you can buy the 1/8" stereo plug to two RCA plugs that Radio Shack has been selling for 30-40 years, plug one end into your Ipod headphone jack, and run the two RCA plugs into your Aux input. That costs about $5, and is easy as pie. An Ipod will play through any old receiver, but the USB docks will not plug into them.

The contacts in the A B speaker selector switch had degraded on my NAD 7130 receiver. Distortion and signal loss would come and go. Contact cleaner and wriggling the swx knob became useless. Then, years ago I jumped the swx with small lengths of bare wire and tinned the whole thing with solder. Never had a problem since and it probably improved the receiver because it eliminated a component in the output stage that could (and did) introduce distortion.
