Need to replace my Technics SU-X501 Amplifier.....HELP!!!!
My old black amplifier is unrepairable and I now need to replace it with something compatible for my Hi Fi system. I'm not bothered if it has to be a different colour as long as it works with all the other components.
My old one has the plug in connections at the rear. I don't want to go mad price wise,but want something powerful to match everything else....please help.

If your unit is intermittent, check the speaker wires on the back of the amplifier for stray threads of wire, next! the printed circuit board underneath should be checked for bad or cracked solder joints, finally one more parts are defective, tough problem to nail down, recommend technician.
I have the User manual of Technics SU-600 in pdf format. If you can
sent your email address the i will sent you the manual.Its not possible
to sent the manual through this site as it is a pdf file.
Being a 500W amplifier, you need to connect speakers with 300W each. The correct method to connect speakers is red terminal of speaker should be connected to red terminal of amplifier & black to black. The left side to left side speaker & right to right speaker. There may be main & remote terminals. Main speakers are the speakers at local place of the amplifier & remote for remotely placed speakers. I do have Technics SU-V85A which is somewhat similar. Enjoy! A nice piece to listen.
This appears to be a tough one to find for free. There is some info out there - but it will cost a few bucks. The service manual or sometimes called a "shop manual" is for those that work on damaged units - and is probably over the top for your needs. The operating manual or owner's manual is likely the same as the one that came with the unit when new. Either can be had at the site below for $15 and $10 respectively:
Make shure speaker wires are not crossed at amp or at speaker terminals. Check balance control is at center. Check sound with headphones to see if final amp to speakers is the problem. Try switching imputs on back panel from right to left see if same speaker is on,.Try all loudness controls and tape dubbing buttons to see if any are dirty.
