Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Technics SA-GX500 My old Technics SA-GX500 is experiencing some old age ailments. I've had the unit for a while and would love to save it if I can. The problem I'm having is this. I turn on the unit and it powers up fine. After some time (this time varies but is about 10 minutes), the power just shuts down. I try cycling the power but it won't come on right away. If I wait a day and try it again, it will power up but again, it will shut down by itself. Any ideas on what's causing this?

Technics SA GX500 sound went out while in operation. Checked all buttons, opened and the three fuses I found inside are intact. Any ideas?


Apart from the fuses what you have mentioned there could be small Relay to prevent both thermal as well power related problems apart from that the DSP and its support circuitry could have conked off . look for small PCB mount chip fuses near and around the DSP and a discrete Micro if it is present

Max. wattage for speakers w/ Technics Receiver SA-GX100?


I too have a Technics SA-GX100 and it's rated at 2 x 40W @ 8 Ohms. I have the Technics SB-2840 floor model speakers hooked to it, which are rated at 200W Music Input - 8 ohms. It sounds very nice just to be a 40W receiver.

Distortion on analog input of Technics SA-DA10.


Solved it... Turns out it was the connection between my "Tape Out" on my DA10, and "In" on my (Philips) DCC deck that caused some sort of (ground?)loop. Removing this connection solved my problem. Can't believe it took me so long to figure this out! Anyway, i'm very happy with this, since i really love this amp, and i felt really bad about this sudden weird distortion thing. My faith in the Technics brand has been restored, as has my appreciation for this lovely piece of gear :)

I had the exact same thing with my Technics SU-A808 stereo amp, btw.
