Question about Amplifiers & Preamps
My amplifier is having some problems!
I can turn it up to full volume and it is still very quiet, i have tried the speakers on both channels and i have the same problem. I know the speakers are ok because i have tried them on another system.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Check that someone has not turned on the tape monitor or mute. Both of these may cause the problem. Is there alot of noise with the sound you are getting when you turn it up?

Hi all, A possible solution for some situations.
A friend gave me his old stereo amplifier (kenwwod kr595). All worked, except that even with Volume full, there was very little sound when any source was connected to any of the rear rca jacks (ie. CD in, Tape in, etc.).
However one pair of the rear jacks played the sound back perfectly (ie. with Volume dial at normal setting). This pair was labelled "Adaptor in".
I googled for a manual, and found that for the sound to play back properly through the other jacks, the "Adaptor in" pair, had to be connected to the "Adaptor out" pair (next to it). This had been made that way, to allow that an Equaliser could be connected in and out of the chain.
The manual said that if not using an equaliser, these need to be connected another way, which I quickly achieved with another short regular rca to rca lead (same type used for connecting everything else).
After this anything that was connected to the other "in jacks" played a proper sound level.
I did notice though, that the sound quality was not quite as clear and strong, as when I connected a source directly to the "Adaptor in" jacks, but would still be fine for most folks.
