Yesterday I hade a real tragic when I was about to listen to some music. I have my amp turned off when I’m not listening so I turned the amp on and the usual “thump” sounded out aloud but immediately another louder “thump” came out from the amp. The logo and inputs lit up but not the volume knob and the mute button where active. I pressed the mute button and everything went black except the logo…
I have turned the amp off, checked the fuse (looks like new), turned it back on but with no sucess.
I have and pro-ject turntable amp connected to the xs 2 and the speakers, not other electronics.
Anyone have some idea what could have happened? Is it dead? =(
Worth a try anyway. It sounds like there might be an issue with the internal preamp supply as it looks like your amp may be thinking you want to use it in power amp mode (does the mute button flash when you turn it on ?).
A trip back to the dealer and then possibly to Naim is in order
Yeah, some of the times when I turned it on the mute button flashed. I have talked to the store and I will send it to the import place here in Sweden for a initial check-up. Maybe they can fix it or the amp need to go back to UK.
Well worth swapping out the link plug though, it’s where I would start looking if the unit were on the bench exhibiting those unusual symptoms. Sounds like the preamp power supply is intermittent/unstable.
Edit: soak mode begins with all the lights on, the inputs then chase along & back, followed by the volume pot driving end to end.
