My system consists of a G68, a G98 CD/DVD player, a 557 powering my front speakers and a 555 for the back ones.

When I switched on both my front and back speakers crackled and both the power amplifiers switched off. The same happened the next time, so I turned off the power and then after a while the G68 would not power up.

I presume there is a fault with the G68 as opposed to the power amps. When I switch on the power amps now they stay on, however there is no throughput.

Any thoughts on this?

Hi,

It sounds like a PSU issue with the G68, not uncommon. We can fix this dependant on what has gone wrong in it.

The 557's could be normally ok if the boot up, as the protection on these are very good (if not a little sensitive sometimes), we can recap and fix these if they ever need it.

Regards
Edd

Thanks for your response.
My local dealer has offered me a trade in of the G68 for a G65. As the G65 is essentially an upgrade on the G68, is this a better option?
Cost would be £2550.

I would go for that as it can cost anything up to that figure if it has many cards destroyed.

If you ever want the 557's refurbished with new Caps we can do this for you.

Thanks Ed, that sounds like good advice.

My 557 was repaired by Meridian in 2012. It has been fine since then.

In the future I might consider some DSP5200SEs.

I will bear you in mind for the future.

Best regards.

Allen
