Question about Arcam AVR-100 Receiver

Open Question

Center channel not out, but very quiet

The center channel on my arcam AVR100 is not completely out, but is just much quieter than it used to be. I can make it sound decent by turning the balance on the center all the way up and the left and right down, but it doesn't sound right. I've tried swapping out the speaker and wires to it with no joy. any ideas?

SOURCE: only my left and right speaker connections works ..what do i do about the other amp wire connections(center and the other 2 pair)

Have you gone through the setup and set the speaker menu so that the unit knows you have other speakers. Check it even if you did. Check that you are not in direct mode or stereo.

SOURCE: Arcam AVR200. Buzzing sounds

If it gets louder with the volume it's noise entering in or before the preamp area.

There could be an unsecured cable shield/ground or a major ground potential difference between the Arcam and other equipment. Try floating the ARCAM free of any other external electronics first. If it's silent start adding things until you identify the culprit.

Stereo channels of Xenyx 1202 are very very quiet


It sounds as if the input is too low. what happens if you plug whatever is going into the stereo channels into a pair of mono channels. Or are you taking about the phono stereo tape input?
The stereo channels are line level whereas the other channels have both line and mic level inputs, what are you trying to put through the stereo channels? You must make sure the gain switch is set to the -10dB to get the most sensitivity (the mono channels have about -132dB max sensitivity BTW) You probably need a different mixer or possibly a submixer if you are needing more than 4 low level inputs.

Using satelite speakers on arcam avr100


Depending on the type of satelite speakers, Bose for example used on their own would be damaged, if your satelite plugs into a sub speaker they are protected by circuitry that controls output level when tied into the whole system, so using them on their own is not a good idea.

I need a power transformer for an Arcam AVR100. Do you seel these or could you point me in the right direction?


As Transformers are safety parts they should only be replaced with a approved part from (in this case) Arcam. I suggest you contact them and they will put you in touch with someone or supply the correct part.

I have Arcam Receiver AVR 300. I bought it used a few months ago and the receiver had worked like a dream. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, there was no sound from the SAT channel/output where the...


Seems you set it to "Stereo Direct" mode. This is an analog only mode, while you are using a digital signal. You can change this with the mode button.
Press menu, on the main menu screen 1, scroll down to stereo direct. Turn this OFF.
This should solve your issue!

If you have the whole Z5500 package you could run the Arcam's optical- or coaxial digital audio output to the corresponding input on the Logitech.

But I'd be careful about letting BOTH the Arcam and the Logictech perform Digital Sound Processing on the sound. DSP's aren't meant to be stacked. My money says the Arcam is better in the DSP department than the Logitech.

If you have just the sub, run the Sub PRE out from the Arcam to the Sub/Center input (adapt it to 3.5 mm) on the Control Center and set the switch to "6 ch direct".

The problem (Known to Arcam) is with the some diodes in the power supply to the DSP board. Over time they do not work properly and the power fluctuation makes the sound distort. They need replacing (only once to a higher spec) if you contact Arcam they can advise you.

Arcam avr300 intermittent problems


I had this same problem with my Arcam AVR300. I ended up shipping mine to an Arcam repair center and they repaired it and shipped it back for under $200. The problems were cracked connection on the start relay and they replaced power supply diodes. Very well worth it and now I can enjoy it again!
