Re: Adcom input jack replacement

The input jacks on a 555 are a standard gold plated, high quality jack. looking around the net, you should pay no more than 7-10 dollars each ( or just get originals from Adcom. ). What is your comfort level with electronics?. Can you solder properly?. I cant answer this without more info.....thanks...Good luck...Rob

Bridge adcom gfa-5500

not unless it has a Bridge switch OR you design an inverter circuit for one of the inputs. If it has XLR inputs you can try to invert pins 2 & 3 on one of them, that might work...

Adcom gfa 555 blows the 10 amp fuse and the 6 amp fuse on the far right

Any fuse blowing is caused by a shorted component in either the power supply section or main audio amp part. Follow the fuse circuit and see where it leads you. Look around for burnt of damaged parts. Suspect anything sitting on a heat sink. The most common culprit is the audio amp main transistors, especially if someone shorted the speaker leads together. In the power part it could be the transformer, the large Electrolytic capacitors, rectifier, or voltage regulator. Some amps use an IC for amplification and this can blow the fuse.

Adcom GFA 5500 right channel emits horrible sound. Broken highs and no bass. Is is repairable by a semi amatuer?

Adcom makes a great amplifer! Usually broken highs and no bass means blown speaker. Try hooking it up to a completely different input source. Try different speakers also. If problem persists, check the fuse. Most will have a fuse on the back you can screw out. Some have two fuses (one for each channel) If this doesn't fix the problem it could be expensive to fix. Also, does this model ave the thermal protection light and if so, does it come on at all?

Adcom 7500, Adcom 5400(bi-amp), Marantz AV-9000, Dakiom HA103

Try just the power amp on ..nothing connected
no Dakiom thingy either. It's a matter of elimination. Start at the output device and work back. Keep the Dakiom out of the loop.
If there's hum with just the Adcom..then it's the ADCOM

How to bridge GPA 555 adcom amp from 8 om to 4 om

First of all, when bridging an anp, the impenence that it can handle usually goes UP not down. I don't believe that the GPA555 can be bridged without circuit modification.
