Sounds like your control pots are dirty. Remove the knobs. Get some good cleaner at Radio Shack. Something with alcohol, and some other ingredients which will remain. Try tuner cleaner, blue shower, etc. Spray the cleaner into the pots and rotate end to end. May have to do this several times to get all the dirt. When it starts to sound like it used to you are done. Let me know how this works out.

Cracking noise nad c340


Sometimes you can find the faulty part by touching the parts inside the amp. Only touch the plastic parts not any metal parts! As it is on one channel you have a good channel to compare the bad. Often small transitors can become noisy so start with them!

My NAD C320 outputs a very low sound volume


Hi there I have a C340 that has similar problem, you must have bought this from ebay, lol.

Nad made a mistake on the C range, the pre - power link can be shorted out. if the pre is shorted out it takes out the pre amplifier stage, I have managed to get the right channel working, I will keep you informed what is the cause of the left channel. I have replaced the pre-amp IC and a couple of Jfets and transistors. Once I have repaired the Amp I could repaire yours if you like???

Hi my amp left channel does not work. the speaker relee works at both channels and the amp works fine at the right side.it goes not in protect what do u think is wrong ?


It could be a number of things. Try this test first though. Play some music and swing the balance control to the bad channel and turn up the volume all the way if needs be. If you hear any music breaking in the pre-amp is ok. If not it could be dead. Again if you hear faint music it's the power amp that's not working.

Next have a look inside. You should be able to identify the channels by following the wires from the speakers. Remember that stereo amps are just two mono amps joined. So the Right Channel will act as a guide to what the left should look like. Plus if you are any good with a volt meter provide the correct voltage indications. Any burnt/damaged parts on the left and not on the right is an indication of the fault area. If you have no output from the above test pay close attention to those parts on the heat-sink for the affected channel.
Ignore the power supply parts are anything that is on it's own, unless it's an IC with both channels going into it. As they can go faulty on one channel, but not the other sometimes.
If you can't find anything it might be an idea to replace the left output device(s).

When I plug my headphones into my lg rumor phone the music wont play but when I take them out the music plays


With some headphones, the sound will only play in MONO, or one channel (Left or Right).

From what I've researched, LG has headphones that will play MP3's in stereo (both L & R channels) provided the music files have been created so that they play in stereo.

You may want to look into buying a pair that's intended for the Rumor phone, or else recommended by LG.

NAD C340 has lost ability to switch between inputs


I have the same problem which started about a month ago and seems to be getting worse. I also noticed today, that 1 channel is significantly louder than the other - fault in the pre-amp stage, as feeding the power stage directly gives balanced, albeit extremely loud sound! Looking on eBay, I found someone else selling an amp with both problems. It would nice to think that NAD would acknowledge a design flaw, and fix for free, but my amp is 5 year old.

NAD C740 no longer reproducing music through loudspeakers


what was your amp? ic or transistorized? the output transistor of your amp may be opened, mostly it will short but because u still hear sound, maybe open and only the driver transistor are working. replacing output transistor or IC could solve the problem.
