I got one of these with a 30 pin iPhone/iPod dock connector when they first came out.
It used to play fine then would cut out with a red flashing LED. Unpower/pepower and it would fix it for 20-30 minutes.
Got it serviced by B&W under warranty years ago but the problem returned.
Have not used it in ages, but it is charging an iPhone X via a 30-pin dock connector to lightning adapter and sounds ok but after maybe 30 mins got the audio cut out again and had to unpower/repower it.
Anyone know if there’s a definitive fix for this or was it just a poor design to begin with?
I believe it was initially put down to capacitor failures, but seeing as it was ‘repaired’ by B&W under warranty years ago and the problem soon recurred there may be more to it.
Crumbs it’s even worse - no longer does it simply cut out but randomly shoots to unpleasantly high volumes.
May be time to put it to pasture, but it was a fairly expensive accessory back in the day and could sound wonderful.
Well let me be the voice of reason. Time to move on.
You know, I bought a B&W A7 that did the same sorts of things. Really a flawed line of products. My solution was to buy a Mu-So, and I never looked back!!
