Question about Aragon 28K MKII 2-Channel Amplifier

2 Answers

Loose knobs I've had this preamp for around six months, and although its sonic performance is ok, its build quality leaves much to be desired. The knobs are starting to loosen up, to the point where, just a few weeks ago, as I turned the power knob, the thing stayed in my hand! Upon examing it up close, I realize that there is supposed to be a tiny screw which fastens the knob to its post. However, the post on the pre's body has no perforation for the screw to settle. Anyone familiar with this product will realize that the power knob (all the way to the left) is the feature that takes the most abuse: It is a double function devise which powers up the preamp on when turned clockwise, and mutes the outputs when turned counterclockwise. The user must apply a greater deal of force to this knob than to the volume and balance knobs. I thought of carefully using Krazy Glue, JB Weld, or any similar product, but I found this resource and decided to wait and see if someone out there has a better suggestion. As many of you may know, Kliptch has killed the Aragon brand, so I can't really pick this bone with them. Thanks in advance for any advice you may come up with!

Holden VF Commodore. Will a VE radiator support panel fit a VF Commodore?

Unlikely

The VF Commodore was built on an altered version of the Holden designed GM Zeta platform, first used in the VE Commodore. The VF was an evolution of the VE, with several visual changes. The VF featured new styling at the front and rear, with a more modern, sculpted appearance replacing the VE's simpler design.

6 yrs old,tubes replaced by 1st owner,perfect for first 8 months,then seems volume diminished, and now distorts when i play hard,playing soft no problem but when i strum hard it distorts

Sounds very much like low emission in the output tubes. Do you know if they were replaced with brand new or used ones? Very possibly the replacements, if they were brand new, are Chinese sourced, and sadly their quality is very low and the lifetime short. Russian Sovtek tubes are much better quality and worth paying more for. It's also important to replace output tubes in pairs, and matched pairs if possible. If the tubes age at different rates, the result is signal distortion, getting progressively worse as the valves age further, although seldom bad enough to be really objectionable - unless one of the tubes has pretty much died altogether while the other one is still performing reasonably well - in that case the symptom is pretty much exactly what you are describing.... :o)

My right ear bud cuts out every time I move my head. I've only had this pair about six months.

It shows that there is a loose connection.

Take the item back to place of purchase and get a replacement. It should be under warranty.

Take care!

Hi, the elements on my duke e101-e 240v single phase convection oven keep going out every 3 to six months...is there any other reason why they would go out so often?

Do not power cold water on them while hot to clean let them cool down gradually.make sure the termina conection to are not loose during replacement. swicth off when you dont need to use for a long

Did I kill my NT1A Condenser Microphone?

This mic has a pre-ampcircuit inside. It sounds like that preamp has a defective stage. What you are hearing is distortion. This is not something that can be repaired locally. This mic should be sent to the manufacturer for repair.
