Question about Sony STR-DE595 5-Channel Amplifier
I have had this amp for several years now. I have been experiencing 2 separate, but possibly related problems with this amp:
1) It has always gone into "protect" mode when playing DVD 5-channel music albums at even low volume. It doesn't happen immediately, but usually after about the 2nd or 3rd song on the album. With films it was always fine however at any volume.
2) In the past few weeks, it has started going into protect mode with any 5-channel DVD movies as well at even mid-volume.
Any help would be appreciated.
Ypou have an intermittent problem that sounds to be heat related... the more work the amp does, the more heat generated by the output stages. This will be aggravating some poor solder joints that are cracked or dry. The unit needs some repair work done in these areas. If you have good experience with a soldering iron, the cure for this is to resolder the power stages of the unit, or any other solder joints that look to be failing.
