Question about NAD T973 Amplifier
The problem with the NAD T973 power amplifiers are usally located on the power supply board.
If inspected you may notice swelling of the high value large electrolytic capacitors. In particular the 22,000uf and the 15,000uf caps.
The other filter caps such as 1000uf and 470uf as well as 3,900uf can also be faulty.
I have had this very problem and found it to be a result of the 1000uf caps specifically creating the loud humming although all amps still were working well. After their replacement, all was well again.
I have also come across the high value caps failing in these amplifiers after around 6 years of age, so would recomend replacing all the mentioned values above if near this age or older amplifier is being serviced.
NOTE: High quality and high temperature capacitors only should be used as repalcements. Mylar manufacture such items although there usally is a fair modification required to fit the 22000uf caps as they are much larger than the NAD originals but they exceed their quality.

Pull bottom panel and get some canned air and spray around circuit board .May have a shorted capacitor to ground.Might have to use repair directory on this site.
