First prove if it's a preamp problem or an amp problem. Plug one of your sources directly into the amp for a moment and play something VERY LOW in volume. If the amp is ok it will play VERY LOUDLY.

If so, look at the preamp and make sure it's not muted or a tape is selected.

Can i hook up a power amp to my Nad 7155 receiver and how

If the Nad has pre-amp out sockets that are currently connected to the power amp in the receiver. Then you can sever those link and put the pre-amp out into your Aragon inputs.
Otherwise I don't see how you can connect the amp.

Sorry, new at this and finding the manual hard to understand, how do I connect my nad C-340 amp to my C-162 preamp. Trying to add a turntable and have a few other questions

You must connect the turntable to the plugs on the left side of your amplifier when you are behind the pre amp. You have to know if you are using a MC or a MM element in your turntable and connect to the right plugs. Don't forget to put the switch in the right position (also MC or MM) The moving coil element is giving a very low voltage accordingly to the Moving magnet element. So it needs some extra amplification.

Hi, I have a NAD C162 Pre-Amp which I am using with a NAD C270 Poer Amp. Th problem is that the Pre-Amp doesn't seem to be driving the Power-Amp efficiently. By this I mean i need to turn the gain up...

Hello, I have an idea:
at the rear side of the NAD preamp there is a switch, it can be in mode MM or MC . Please check it whether it is in right position or not.

Good luck,

NAD C272 AMP has little volume and sound is muddy and distorted.

Normaly this is what cause little volum and distortion. Check first if you got +68/-68V on amp module left and right Often the -68V is missing. This is caused by faulty transistor Q712 (2SA872) in +68/-68V power supply.

It's logical since the headphones jack is connected at the main amplifier. Does your new main amp has headphones out?

NAD C272 Amplifier: Intermittent left channel

My solution was actually indeed the output protection relay. What I did was to open up the relay and use contact cleaner and a very fine abrasive to clean the contact surfaces of the relay. After that, the problem was gone!

The way to diagnose this for me was to run the amplifier open until the problem recurred and to simply tap the relay's box. The sound came on immediately, and I was convinced.
