I know what is wrong with this unit. Unfortunately, it will take a little more to bring it back to life than what @lock123 suggests.


However, the MZC-66 is the best home audio management system/power amplifier around and it is well worth the effort to repair. I can do it for you for one half the cost of buying a refurb, and I will also upgrade it to Generation II at the same time, not to mention firmware upgrade and system reprogramming. The repairs that I do correct manufacturing defects and will give you decades of trouble free service.


You will never have to worry about this unit again. My highly satisfied customers are proof.

Hello

If your amp is still undr warrenty, send it back, do not void warrenty. If it is already out of the warrenty period you can open the amp up untill you see the cicuit board. Now you trace the board to the sound channels, once here have a look at the capasitors, you will easily see if it has overheated. You can replace this yourself or take it to a repair shop where they will fix it for cheap.

But before you try this. Once the amp is opened up, locate the fuse and see if the fuse is still working properly.

If all else fail, take it to a repair shop and first get a qoute on how much it will cost you to fix and then decide if it is worth the money to fix. Please rate this.

Best regrds

All 6 zones buzz. mcz-66


Check to make sure no source or speaker cables cross power cables, and make sure power is clean by using a regulated surge protector.

I'd say you can slave up to 12 audio channels off this thing. It neither knows nor cares what they terminate into.

I'm thoroughly confused on how to hook up a tuner/receiver to put music out through the MZC-66 amp. All of the keypads and connections to them have been installed, but I have inputs for sources on the...


Shame on your Speakercraft dealer for not having installed this system for you or at least telling you how to hook things up! (You did get this from an authorized Speakercraft dealer, didn't you?) As you know, the MZC-66 comes with a 40 page user guide that will show you how to connect the system in your choice of several different ways. You gave very little information as to what keypads you have, what sources you want to connect, or why there is even a standard stereo receiver involved in this picture at all. The MZC is a custom installation product, designed by and for custom installation specialists and it has sooooo many ways to be installed that it can be used in just about any way you might want.
The simplest answer for you right now is that each of the inputs is paired with a "loop-output" which allows you to connect your source first to the MZC, and then (with another patch cord) to another preamp (or in this case, your receiver). You said that you only needed six zones, but the receiver adds in to make seven. Why do you want the receiver in the picture, again? Just for the tuner? Or do you want to use the amplifier in the receiver to power one of your rooms? (Remember, the MZC has pre-outs for every zone!) Depending on what make and model receiver you have, you can do any one of several different methods of making the two units work and play well with others. Again, I go back to the whole authorized dealer thing. With something like this, maybe it's best that you call in a custom installation pro who does this for a living to do this the right way. Too many potential ways to fail in an effort to save a buck. SpeakerCraft dealers are the pros who know how to make these things jump through hoops. They are the ones who put SpeakerCraft at the front of the line in distributed music systems. This is an advanced enough product that there is no way to tell someone the "one" way to make it work. Besides, unless you have just the most basic of keypads, how do you even plan to program the keypads to operate your source equipment? What is it that you want these pieces to do? What keypads do you have? Do you want the keypads to operate the source components? Will you use any of the video distribution functions? Will you use the doorbell or muting functions? How much experience do you have with finessing this kind of thing? Sometimes, it really is best for the DIYer to call in the pros... I just had to call a plumber, myself. It killed me to make the call, but I was wasting too much time and getting nothing done! You should start by calling the SpeakerCraft dealer where you bought the MZC-66. Good Luck!
