Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have an old Kenwood A 85 amp that I picked up from a mate. I was just testing it and I cant get any volume.
I have hooked up one speaker and am running my i-pod through the Aux input. If i turn my i-pod to full and my amp to full, i can just about hear the music.
Does this meanb the amp is broken or am I missing a trick.
I have tried using the other input sockets but it's the same result for all of them.
When you turn it up full the sound you are hearing is just the pre-amp stage with no full amp power! It looks like there is something wrong with the power amp stage. However it's odd that you have lost both channels. I should check inside and see what does all the hard work. I rather suspect you might find a single IC as the power amp (look at whatever is on the heat sink). I will post a picture below of what an IC power amp looks like. If it is I would replace it. They are often trouble makers. Before removing it put the number in google and you should see how much it is and if you can get it!
Let me know if it's not an IC on the heat sink and I will suggest other culprits for you to look for.
