Re: eltax avr-200 no sound

Eltax AVR-200 will start up in protection mode if the amplifer went into protection mode due to high volume before it was turned OFF and it will start at the same volume level as it had before power OFF.

To correct this you must shift to another input without signal, then turn the volume down before it goes into protection mode again.

I have a Marantz turntable, a Marantz CD player, an Eltax tape player and a Marantz amplifier with two Cambridge speakers, how do I assemble them into a stack system please ? Thank you

All the sources, turntable, CD player and tape unit have an output. These should go in the input of the amplifier with the same name. Then only the Tape player, could have an input, for recording music or whatever. For that input, your amplifier should have an tape out. All these should be connected with cables with tulip plugs, like these.

Use the white for left on everything and red for right.
If one of the devices as a different connector, find a cable for audio, with on one end the tulip plugs and on the other end the fitting plug.
Then the output of the power amplifier it should say output or LS, can be connected with 2 wires going to the speakers.
For this the same counts, although it is difficult to see when you use electrical wires in one colour. What comes out red on he amp, should go on the same screw connector on the speaker. Just to avoid one speaker being out of phase. It will work, but could sound a little strange when the speakers are out of phase.
With the correct model names added, perhaps we could have given a more accurate answer.

Please don't test the system or switch on, with the volume button to the max. Don't switch anything on an amplifier when the volume is high, or the setting is high. A short increase of the volume, during switching can, and has very often destroy(ed) the speakers.

Denon avr-1603 switches itself off

Fist of all you have to disconnect all the speakers From AVR. Then switch ON the AVR . If its working normally then any of the speaker or any of the wire to the speaker is faulty. If so connect the speaker back one by one and check on which speaker connection does the AVR shuts off. That speaker or the wire to the speaker is faulty.

If the AVR is not functioning properly even after removing the speakers(shuts off) then there is internal fault with the amplifiers stage. Normally Dry soldering on the amplifier circuit board or any of the output stage is faulty. To rectify the same need professional support.

Sound output problems

Are you saying a stereo source sometime switches to multichannel? In my experience, that's the opposite of what I think could be happening.

Many AVR's have automation that can be set to select the better of the two audio paths from a source if you have analog and digital assigned to the same input. If digital is present, it prefers it. If the signal degrades or goes away, it switches to analog. I think it's trying to tell you the hdmi cable connection or the source is flaky.

Perhaps you could flesh out the details of what input is being used and also look at the source device. Isolate the cause by swapping it to another compatible input and/or trying another cable.

I have cambridge audio azur 640a amp. Problem I have is only the one speaker is working. Both speakers seem to be ok working off the left speaker terminal. Seems to be problem with output from right...

The fault is on the amp! It sounds like the protection circuit is detecting a surge on the channel and shuts it down to protect the speaker. I would check the semiconductor device(s) for the right channel on the heatsink of the amp. You might even see damage of burning on one!

Hi all i have a Denon DRA 455 with Eltax Linear 6.5 wich is 8ohms i have a sub but no sub output, apart from sharing power between them, how can i hook these up please? thanks

You did not state if your sub is a powered sub or not, but if you use the "B" channel for your sub, it should work. This is possible if the denon will work with "A" channel and 'B" channel on together. The back of the Denon should have two sets of speaker outputs. Connect the "B" channel speaker outputs to the sub. The "A" channel will still drive your 6.5's.
