Question about AudioSource AMP-100 2-Channel Amplifier

Amp 100 Line 1 in problem

Just bought a brand new AudioSource Amp100 2-channel. 
When I plug an iPod or a TV into Line 1 In, and the volume of the source sound dips low, the amplifier clicks and the sound cuts out. Quiet parts of movies make it happen. Quiet parts of songs from the iPod make it happen.
When the volume of the sound source increases again, the amplifier clicks and the sound returns. 
This only happens with Line 1 In, never with Line 2 In. 
Is there something wrong with the amp, or with what I'm doing>

    I have the exact same problem - I think it has to do with the auto-on function, but it happens even if the auto-on is disengaged.

    I have my Amp100 hooked up to a Motorola HD DCH6416 just to have a simple, reliable amplifier for improved TV sound. The clicks are loud enough to be annoying and the silences are also noticable. I have tried different settings on the sliders with no change.

Hi JamesOBrien

That is a strange problem you have indeed. The amp switches automatically from one input to the other, with default to input 1. You say the source sound dips low, is this a source from another integrated amp, where the AMP100 is working as a zone 2 device? . Are you using it as a zone 2 amp, and plugging other devices in the zone 2 area? and lastly, are you using auto on functions? Let me know, and we may be able to figure it out for you.

If it is new, then it may be worthwhile swapping it over for another by the supplier of the amp

regards
Graeme

Where do I start testing?


I would check if the amplifier somewhere gets hot. Most likely with a certain temp the amplifier will go into protection, Avoiding damage to the vital parts.
When you can find the place where it becomes hot, perhaps you can see if a transistor, or am integrated circuit is not correctly fastened. Before fastening it, perhaps you should apply cooling paste. (Like you use between a microprocessor and the van)

Perhaps it is only running hot, because you want to much power?

Audiosource amp 100 on lower volumes right speaker louder than left speaker 2.1 setup


The problem is not due to how the circuitry is configured; the problem is due to failure of some element in the right channel amplification circuit. This will require detailed troubleshooting to correct.

I have an audiosource amp 350 watts the volume is not as loud as is should be????


How loud do you expect it to be?

More watts doesn't mean more loud but it gives you more headroom for cleaner reproduction of very loud passages. Distortion will kill a speaker faster than clean signals will.

Looking to hook up an audiosource EQ100 to an a sony cass deck


Simply place it in line with the analog input. Or install it in a Tape Loop on your integrated amp/receiver and attach your tape deck to ITS tape Loop.

Ins to Outs


Receiver Tape Out (Rec) - to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Rec, Line-In;


Receiver Tape In (Play) - from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Play , Line-Out.

Be advised, using analog processors on digital-capable multichannel elcetronics will only work for analog 2-channel sources.

I have a audio source amp 100 on a volume control . it get real hot after being on for just a few minutes.


It is normal for power amps to get warm. Overheating can be caused by deffective speakers, or internal leakage on the transistors. Does is produce normal sound?

I bought a connector that you would use for an ipod but, I still have no sound. On the back of my Vizio TV...where the RGB cable is hooked up, there is a small headphone size jack there. Is that the one...


Clarifying...

You are trying to play audio from the TV through your computer?

You need an adapter cable that has an 1/8" stereo phone plug on one end, and two RCA male jacks on the other end.

The RCA connectors are to be plugged into your RV using the AUDIO OUT jacks (usually red/white) and the small plug goes into the auxiliary or line in jack on the back of your computer.

Then, Double-Click on the volume icon in the system tray (this should bring up the system mixer), unmute the line in sound if it is not already and run the "slider" control for that input up about half way.

then, Tune the TV to whatever channel or input you wish and adjust the volume level on your computer to a comfortable listening level.

Rob

ps. Some TVs don't use fixed level audio outputs, and the volume will vary as you run the volume up/down on the TV, too...

Ipod classic video


You need a special 1/8" cord for video output. For example the standard 1/8" cord has 2 black rings on the 1/8 plug, each ring is a channel one for left side and one for right side. You need an 1/8 cable that has 3 rings on the plug, 1 for video, 2 for Left and right audio channels. It dosen't have to be an IPOD brand cable it just needs the 3 black rings.

Good Luck

Center channel speaker


Is the amp already used for L R? If so, you either need another amp for center, or set your Sony for stereo mix down. I have mixed the center channel into my main LR in the past and found there were terrible phase cancellations, so I suggest you switch to Stereo, or use a separate amp.
