Question about Pyramid PR530A 2 Channels Receiver

Master volume control knob

The knob does not have a stop but keeps turning after it gets to "no sound".Same for maximum sound. Is this normal? If not, is there an easy way to fix it?

Thanks,

John P.

Wow, it is nice to see rotary controllers becoming more available on the markets these days. I hope that they can get the kinks worked out a little better. That is going to be really important in the long run.

Yes it uses a digital attenuator and the vol control is a rotary encoder only.

Master volume control pot is dirty and needs to be cleaned out. You can do this by unplugging the receiver and turning the master volume control back and forth from zero volume to full blast a couple of hundred times to clean the surfaces and restore normal operation.

Fender Deluxe. The volume knob has no effect whatsoever. Volume only changes with the drive knob.


Your amp has two channels - "normal" and "drive." When you are on the normal channel, the "volume" knob controls your gain. In the "drive" channel, the drive knob controls your gain. In both channels, the "master" knob limits how loud the amp will get.

Most likely, you are on the drive channel, so the volume knob will have no effect. Try pushing the "channel select" switch. You should notice the channel indicator lamp (next to the drive knob) turn off. When it is off, you are in the normal mode. Yellow = drive, and red = "more drive."

Experiment with different settings to get a variety of tones.

To get the most out of this amp, try reading the manual, available online here:

Have fun - it's a great amp.

My subwoofer on my philips 5.1 speaker system is constantly generating lots of bass noise even on mute.


I assume you are using XP. Try these steps.
1. Open 'Sound and Audio devices' in Control Panel.
2. Select 'Advanced...' button near bottom. b2053f1.jpg

3. Select 5.1 system 972ed04.jpg

4. Start playing a sound.
5. Set the volume control of the subwoofer to the middle position.
6. Open volume control and adjust Master volume to a comfortable level (i.e. until there is no hum).

Also make sure you haven't muted any sound device except microphone. I think your problem is you have set it to the maximum level. So decrease it.
7. Mute the sound and check.
Good luck! Let us know the result.

BOSTON ACOUSTICS BA735 volume is LOWER than MAXIMUM LEVEL


OK, a few things here. First of all, what program are you using to listen to music? Some programs have an automatic volume leveling setting. If you're using Windows Media Player, it has one. Next, you should NEVER set any speaker/volume/amplifier knob to Maximum setting if you want to get any life out of your speakers. Speaker ratings are for consistent volume levels at a "clean" power level. When you turn any music source up past 80% you are pushing more distortion through the speakers that they cannot reproduce without self destructing. The human ear cannot hear this, and the volume gain is minimal. Next we'll talk about that your dealing with a combination of power levels compiling into an amplifier that may be taking in more than it can aptly amplify according to it's power multiplier scheme to increase the volume at the speaker level. If you've got everything maxed out, you're probably just pushing it all WAY too hard. All over exerted energy that is not being used productively will end up in generating heat and distortion. Those are your 2 biggest enemies when it comes to anything audio. Distortion tears voice coils and generates disruptive electrical currents, and heat destroys circuitry and components in amplifiers. The times where they jump up in volume, just look at that as borrowed time until they blow. If you want louder, get a better or more powerfully rated set, and still, NEVER turn it up past 80% if you want it to last.

HI-Fi Amp Issues


Hi,
I'd love to have more information to go on, but I can give you a few things to check:
If there is a traditional volume control that is motorized, you will see the volume knob start moving on its own after you start it up. If that is the case, you'll need to have someone look at the motor control circuit. Luckily these are almost so generic that parts would be as common as replacing fuses.
If there is a volume knob that is an encoder, it may be faulty. How to tell if it is an encoder? Easy. If it will spin continuously with no extra effort, in both directions, it is an encoder. If in fact there is an encoder present underneath the knob, and the amp is responding to the remote correctly, it may be as simple as someone replacing the encoder.
If there is no volume knob at all, just a couple buttons to press, one for up, one for down, there are issues in that circuit that will need to be addressed.
If the volume control is only from the remote, and it keeps climbing on its own until you turn it down, there is a digital volume control chip that controls the volume. Unfortunately, anything in the circuit from that chip itself, all the way back to the sensor for the remote, could be faulty.
HOWEVER, do not despair yet, there may be another area to check. Turn the amp on, then IMMEDIATELY take the batteries out of the remote. If the volume stops climbing right there and then, guess what? :) Time for a new remote, or have someone take a look at the one you have if it is an expensive unit. One more related thing to check: If there are any other remotes in the room, remove them, or any other possible sources of infrared light. Alternately, take a piece of heavy black electrical tape and cover the sensor for the remote, and turn the amp on. If it behaves normally, something else in the room is "telling" the amp to increase volume. If any of these tests produce results no different from what you've experienced so far, the fault is in fact inside the amp.

Sound


Set your SAT receiver to full volume and use your Sony TV volume control as the master volume control. If you use an external surround sound amplifier do the same thing using the amplifiers volume control as the master volume control.

Consider that all source devices that have the ability to control their output volume will output what they call line level 0dB when the source device is set for maximum volume. If you set the source device to 1/4 volume your output to the amplifier may be around -25dB or lower. Introduce that low of an audio level to the amp and you will have to turn the amp up to half way or better causing the amp to amplify noise too.

I'm sure you went to Control Panel, opened device manager, and and checkeck for any yellow checks for your
sound, video and game controllers. If there are none, your system is go. Then go to your audio manager on control panel, and set it up for whatever speaker configuration you have. I have realtec audio manager. This step is a must for configuring—you choose whether your laptop will use its own speaks or use your external speakers—you have to turn off the internal speakers and turn on the external. Did you forget?
