    Its preamp to amp. But what are you going to use the preamp for?

    Most amplifiers have the preamp already built into them.

Hi Jimmy

The output of the preamp connects to the input of the power-amp, left and right channels respectively. Some preamps (like NAD) can have more than one set of outputs, is this what you are dealing with? If you can give me the make and models of the gear then I can help you more... :)

Volume from turntable too low

Have you got it connected to a dedicated "phono" sockets that has an in-built pre-amp for it?
If you haven't got one you might need a magnetic cartridge pre-amp.
If it has got a pre-amp then it's possible the pre-amp has failed. To check, remove the wires from the cartridge. And with your finger (with the unit connected to an amp and it switched on) touch the wires one at a time. You should hear a loud buzz on two of the wires. If you do the cartridge is faulty. If you don't the pre-amp has gone. The pre-amp failure will not effect any other function on the amp. Pre-amp's are these days a single IC, which will need to be replaced.

Have a Harmon/Kardon AVR 20. The right channel produces an extremely weak signal when playing music through any input. (Yet, once I hit the "test" button, the sound hits each speaker equally). Help!

It sound like it could be the pre-amp that is playing up. The picture you posted shows that the pre-amp can be listened to separately. All you need to do is pull the two black jumpers out. And connect a separate power amp to the "pre out" sockets. Leaving the other two not connected. If the weakness is present you will know it's in the pre-amp and not the power amp stage of your amp.

NHT sa-2 amplifier won't go into standby mode after 10 Minutes of no signal

Does the NHT sa-2 have it's own pre-amp? Because I'm wondering if the power off only works when it's own pre-amp is used? So when your receiver is connected it's shut off.

You could try something connected to it's own pre-amp (if it has one) and see if it goes off when there's no signal from that.

I need Schematica from the Ashdown little giant. I expect that the fan is not properly connected.

Don't have the schematics for this one... have for a 500 watt one... HOWEVER from that one the schematic shows that the fan is "throttled" by a negative temp resistor which should run the fan when the temp goes up where the sensor is located. The fan MAY not run at all until the temp reaches a certain point.

There are some burnt carbon resistors beyond recognition on a peavey tnt bass I need the schematic diagram

Try these schematics:

Scroll down to "Get Manual" at the web page and click on it to download.

Please note that on the first schematic above, the power amp schematic is way down beyond the parts list and layout of the preamp section... keep scrolling. ALSO the powoer amp shows a real WIERD connection where the output transistors drive against ground and the center tap of the power supply transformer for the power amp portion then bounces around with the audio output... that is a wierd connection but it is possible.

My turn table works properly but its volume is too low thu the amp is perfect. the needls are new too

Look it can either be one of 3 things. (1) Cartridge knackered. 2 Internal pre-amp in turntable. 3 Cartridge Pre-amp in Main amp connected to it.
To solve (1) disconnect all wires to cartridge. With the turntable connected to main amp - touch each channel wire (that connects to cart) with your finger. If you hear a decent buzz the cart has gone. A weak buzz and the other two could be still to blame.
Remember all functions on your main amp can work fine, but that pre-amp for the cartridge (often a single IC) can be dead or weak.

You have to make sure your unit is connected to the PHONO INPUT connection on your receiver. If your receiver does not have a PHONO INPUT connection, then you will need to buy what's called a PHONO PRE-AMP - AVAILABLE HERE.

You connect the turntable to the Phono Pre-Amp, then you connect the Pre-Amp to the LINE IN or AUX IN of your receiver.

Turntable connection

Yes, you'll need to purchase a PHONO PRE-AMP, and then connect the turntable to the pre-amp, and the pre-amp to the LINE INPUT of your receiver.
