SOURCE: arcam avr300 intermittent problems

I had this same problem with my Arcam AVR300. I ended up shipping mine to an Arcam repair center and they repaired it and shipped it back for under $200. The problems were cracked connection on the start relay and they replaced power supply diodes. Very well worth it and now I can enjoy it again!

SOURCE: My Arcam AVR300 is having issues with the digital

The problem (Known to Arcam) is with the some diodes in the power supply to the DSP board. Over time they do not work properly and the power fluctuation makes the sound distort. They need replacing (only once to a higher spec) if you contact Arcam they can advise you.

SOURCE: Arcam AVR300. When in surround

I'm going to assume there's nothing unusual going on here like bi-amping or speakers being driven by external amps on the pre-outs; and that the volume levels were not really high when it occurred. You would have pointed that out, right?

Is is possible that you may not notice the symptom on music or action unless you are really focusing on it?

http://www.arcam.co.uk/_ugc/file/avr300e_manual.pdf

On page E-13, step 2, what's your configuration?

Does this only happen with a certain digital source?

There are some interesting (mal)adjustments possible on this beast. ADV5 on page E-17, is one. If one source is acting up, would a 'wrong' setting here be responsible?

It's possible that a given digital source may drop out or degrade and if you also have the analog audio connected it may temporarily switch to that feed until the bitstream is restored.

Be sure any optical cables are run so they have no small-radious bends which would cause light signal loss.

I hope this either helps or stimulates an aha moment for you.

Arcam repair


Maybe a firmware (that's the running program) problem I'd contact Arcam, if your Solo has a USB input they should be able to send you a firmware update which you can download to a USB stick and then upload to the Solo (instructions will be in the manual). If not your local Arcam dealer should be able to do it for you Arcam warranties are 3 to 5 years. Don't now if they'll edit this but also try AV Forums online. good luck

Display on arcam say initialising... And nothing happens


It can be a faulty "cd drive unit" or "main board". In my case it was the main board.

No sound from avr300e hooked up properly was fine for 1 week then no sound


She's really failed 'big way' on you hasn't she OK - I'm afraid the best solution for you will be to take it to that very nice friendly repair man down the street.
If he turns out to be NOT so-friendly then just 'cut-your-losses' and get another avr300e

We just purchased an LG, LED, LCD, TV and just realised that our existing Arcam AVR 100 does not have an optical out. Does this mean we need a new amp or are there alternative solutions? Many thanks.


Actually, it doesn't have ANY digital outputs. Just what do you require one for? Name specific models and functions when replying.

Do you think the TV NEEDS optical audio from the receiver? Maybe the TV could survive on just analog audio from the video source, while the GOOD audio goes to the ARCAM since the ARCAM is going to do the hard work of managing and driving the REAL speakers.

How to hook up a computer sub to a hometheater amp


http://www.arcam.co.uk/_ugc/file/avr280e_manual.pdf

If you have the whole Z5500 package you could run the Arcam's optical- or coaxial digital audio output to the corresponding input on the Logitech.

But I'd be careful about letting BOTH the Arcam and the Logictech perform Digital Sound Processing on the sound. DSP's aren't meant to be stacked. My money says the Arcam is better in the DSP department than the Logitech.

If you have just the sub, run the Sub PRE out from the Arcam to the Sub/Center input (adapt it to 3.5 mm) on the Control Center and set the switch to "6 ch direct".
