Re: channel has switched off.

Make shure speaker wires are not crossed at amp or at speaker terminals. Check balance control is at center. Check sound with headphones to see if final amp to speakers is the problem. Try switching imputs on back panel from right to left see if same speaker is on,.Try all loudness controls and tape dubbing buttons to see if any are dirty.
Good Luck

Su-x501 turning off intermitently

If your unit is intermittent, check the speaker wires on the back of the amplifier for stray threads of wire, next! the printed circuit board underneath should be checked for bad or cracked solder joints, finally one more parts are defective, tough problem to nail down, recommend technician.

Hi I just got a Technics SU V2 amp and can't get sound from the speakers. What size speakers would suit this amp? What is the correct method to connect the speaker leads to the back of this amp,...

Being a 500W amplifier, you need to connect speakers with 300W each. The correct method to connect speakers is red terminal of speaker should be connected to red terminal of amplifier & black to black. The left side to left side speaker & right to right speaker. There may be main & remote terminals. Main speakers are the speakers at local place of the amplifier & remote for remotely placed speakers. I do have Technics SU-V85A which is somewhat similar. Enjoy! A nice piece to listen.

I want to no how to wire the hole system up just picture diagram SU-X501

This appears to be a tough one to find for free. There is some info out there - but it will cost a few bucks. The service manual or sometimes called a "shop manual" is for those that work on damaged units - and is probably over the top for your needs. The operating manual or owner's manual is likely the same as the one that came with the unit when new. Either can be had at the site below for $15 and $10 respectively:

I am not affiliated with this or any other site that charges for manuals, tips, advice, etc.; and only offer it as a source for the info you're looking for. I hope this helps!

Hello! I have a problem with Technics SU-V2X

Well whatever is playing up sounds like it might be getting too hot to me. In any case it's something common to both channels. Just have a look on the heatsink to see if it uses a single IC for both channels, they are can cause lots of problems!
The IC might be marked STK with numbers after the letters. That is the part number too for ordering a new one.

Sound cuts when volume is turned up

check that power amplifier rating(how many watt)must be more than total speaker rating by 20% at least..
exampel:if speakers watts are 100 watt-amplifier watt must be 120 watt.

Sound from one speaker only.

your output stage had a problem in electronic output device and must be maintained in service center.
