Buzzing Audiolab 8000M/8000C set up

Hi. I just bought the following on ebay, which were described as ''excellent''. 2nr Audiolab 8000M 1nr Audiolab 8000C.

When I connect up the monoblocks I get buzzing and crackling from the speakers. If I add the 8000C to the circuit it becomes more of a buzz, which is ''cleaner''. All of this is very noticeable and the units are unuseable. I also tried using my 8000A as a pre amp, and the problem is still there.

Any ideas as t what is wrong, who could fix it and what it may cost? I am in London.

thanks

Derek

    Hi
    Thank you for your ideas. I have tested the equipment using a different mains supply. I have also changed all the supply leads and checked that all plugs are earthed. All of that was ok. Not sure what else to look at now.

    Thanks

    I also have an Audiolab 8000A. I tried using that as a power pre amp and still got the buzzing in the speakers. I then tried it as a power amp with the 8000C I bought, and got no output whatsoever, so it looks like all 3 components are not working.

    Any ideas as to costs/

    just re read all this and realised I should have mentioned that the amps don't give too much speaker buzz when they are powered up without sources connected. add in a tuner or a CD player and it then starts to generate a lot of buzzing through the speakers.

    i am afraid either the power section or the power amp is burnt. it will not cost that much to repair. any qualified tech should be able to repair it.

What is cause of Buzzing dial tone


This phenomenon is the phone lines and phone instrument rectifying the RF signal from your cell phone as it communicates periodically with the cell sites. The energy is rectified (turned into voltage) by the phone lines and appears as a buzzing pulsing noise in the home phone. This will trash a fax completely. There is NO solution except to turn off the cell phone or orient it away from phones and phone lines sufficiently to stop the interaction. You could put hte phone in a RF proof bag (metalized film) which would then prevent it from receiving an incoming cell call. Either way, you lose some usability of either home or cell phone for the duration of the issue.

check Grounding Connection. Also check Security Alarm interface

Static (buzzing) on your line are produced from analog equipment in your phone system (your phone and phone cable). When the phone adapter receives the sound data, it digitizes the data and eliminates the possibility of producing static or buzzing. Try using a different phone or replacing the phone cable and test if that resolves the issue.

not hearing a dial tone.

If you do not hear a dial tone, please check the following:

• Make sure the telephone and VoIP telephone adapter are plugged in

• Disconnect and re-connect the telephone cable

• Make sure your telephone is set to ring (not set to pulse) If the above items have been checked, it is possible your phone adapter needs to be rebooted.

• Reboot your equipment as described in "Rebooting Your Equipment."

• If this doesn't work, try the solutions as described in "Calling Issues with Firewall/Router"


Take care..

Audiolab 8000CD Player Problem


This may be a problem with the sled motor. This is the motor that moves the optical assembly in and out along a rail. Try openint up the unit and cleaning off the rail with a dry cotton swab. Be careful not the leave any fibers on the rails. Also, while you are in there, clean the lens using another cotton swab and alcohol. Report back with your results.
