Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Compatibilty Can you tell me please is Technics SA-GX350 Receiver compatible with Wharfedale Diamond Speakers. I wondering does the Technics Receiver have enough power in watts to drive the Wharfedale 159 speakers? As far as I know, the Receiver is 50 watts per channel and the speakers in terms of power input are between 60watts and 200watts. Any help would be greatly appreciated as your advice may negate the need to purchase a new more powerful amplifier/receiver. Stephen.

If what you say is true, you should be fine.
Where you get into trouble is having an amp of higher power than your speakers. That means you will likely blow your speakers.

    Many thanks. Receiver was 100watts per channel BUT unfortunately I wasn't impressed with the Wharfedale speakers like other models. And these are Flagships int their 100s range!

SOURCE: Noisy channel of receiver

Generally, crackling noises come from anyplace there is a mechancial connection for the sound signal. The volume control, main/remote speaker switch and possibly the headphone jack. That is where the contacts must be cleaned, but it requires dissassembly. Try operating the main/remote speaker switches, and plug/unplug a headphone several times. I am assuming there is still audio behind that crackling. Are you using both main and remote speakers simultaneously?

SOURCE: Max. wattage for speakers w/ Technics Receiver SA-GX100?

I too have a Technics SA-GX100 and it's rated at 2 x 40W @ 8 Ohms. I have the Technics SB-2840 floor model speakers hooked to it, which are rated at 200W Music Input - 8 ohms. It sounds very nice just to be a 40W receiver.

SOURCE: Technics receiver SA-GX350 Receiver Manual states

its not safe but manageable.if the speaker impedance is too low, the amplifier will tend to overheat and more power is used up in the amplifier than is delivered to the speaker. Too many speakers on a solid state amp can burn up the power output section.

My Technics sa GX350 tuner keeps going into overload. It's the only thing plugged in.


Hi mate, had the same problem with my amp.. Take the top off and there is a fan at the back, there are 2 piece's of copper flat wire that touch together and these do not touch anymore so when its turned up or the bass gets stronger it cuts off as the fan should kick in at this point. If you can get these to touch again (bend them) then the problem will be gone!! I have had to do this a few times now though so this is not a long term fix.. I may try soldering!

My Technics AV Control Receiver SA AX530 is in overload


An amplifier should never be turn on without speakers, it will overload internally.
make sure speakers work and try again.

I'm not sure what entry will be emailed to you, so I have repeated the "solution" from the other entry below. Please only update one.

Thanks,

Initial entry:

There could be a number of reasons for this. It woyld help if you could indicate what resistors you changed. The circuit designation should be marked on the PC board. Please post those here and I'll look further and provide some possible solutions.

Thanks,

Speaker connection from Denon AVR 2105 to Wharfedale suround


The spkrs sound like they are bi-amp spkrs, meaning you have multiple terminals on the backs of each spkr, the jumpers on the spkrs should be connected as such. Now you just connect the spkrs according to the Denon spkr conection diagram. Do not use the surround back unless you have 6 or 7 pair of spkrs
