Question about NAD Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I am using the NAD silver series integrated amp. S300. i have a peculiar problem as some times I get distortion during playback in either of the channels, but mostly the right channel. The distortion is such that once it starts coming, it kind of fluctuates, and then eventually only a faint sound of music is heard from that channel. it happens only after I have played the system for some time. have already checked my other components, nothing wrong with my source components. i am not able to figure out the problem,let me know what you think. thanx krivisoh

Sounds like thermal problem, probably voltage regulator section of Power Supply. Open up look for signs of hot spots on circuit board

SOURCE: Distorted sound coming out of SW channel only

Yes ive heard of such a thing because just randomly my sx-316 decided to do that also
and im thinkin the amp is blown. my SW channel sounds as if its shorting yet ive checked all the wiring,polarities, and used 3 dif subs on it and all are the same result. The amp is built into the reciever so you cant modify the volts heading to the sub.

SOURCE: I have distortion coming out of my front right channel of my AVR

Yes, sounds like your DSP chip has an issue. Not an inexpensive repair if that's the culpret. Around 400-500 to replace the chip. It's an awesome receiver and worth 300-400 in repair, however, a 3800 or 1800 can be had for 600-800 depending where you look. If you need more help, post a comment and I can help you some more.

SOURCE: right channel sound is distorted

You most likely should remove the casing of your reciever and take a can of compressed air to clean it out start with that and also while you hvae it open look for any solder that looks messy or melted

NAD M3 power light turns red immediately and PROTECT message displays. Amp keeps functioning but volume control doesn't work up or down.


Hello
Check the connection to speaker with this amp, for any short or any other fault. disconnect the outputs, ie, speakers from the amp, and switch it On, and see the protect display comes or not. If it comes, the fault is internal and the set need service.
Your M3 dual Mono integrated amp, is of high output power and its outputs are protected against any overload or short circuit. If the system detect any among this condition specified above, it will show protect mode display.
Never load this amp, as protection display is there, as it may damage the speaker or its internal power amplifier section circuits, may cause more money to get it repaired. OK.

NAD 7020e sudden volume drops, sudden distortion- intemittently


OK. I dont know the answer to your prob, but to let you konw that youre not in this alone, my amp used to occasionly lose considerable volume in one channel. this could be remedied by cracking the volume up to max for a half second or so. (Not a great solution!!) It has finally given up the ghost ...I have lost one channel and the doctor says it wont come back. Not only this but they claim that spares ceased to be sold back in the 90's. having said this I have enjoyed this amp for almost 20 years. I think its time to put it to pasture.

Marantz CDR-510: Playback is good , recording is distorted


If this brand of media is new to you and the symptom is unique to it, I'd try a different brand.

Monitoring during record would never reveal media problems as there is no immediate playback after record as on old-school 3-head tape recorders.

I've had similar intermittent problems and I never could find a pattern to it except that it always seemed to be on low-end media. My best advice would be to try to find a pattern in your instance and make a change that avoids it. Then publish what you learned for us.

Good luck.

NAD S300 Amplifer humming


You have either got a bad earth connection, or possibily there's a capacitor failed.
If you can't find a dodgy conection, I would replace the large Electrolytic Capacitors in the power section, they are used to take out 50hz hum in the mains electric, when they go you get that hum coming into your system.

Connecting NAD 314 Receiver\ preamp to Carver M-500t to speakers


Dear Tim,
Yes, you can connect your NAD as a preamp to the Carver power Amp.

Connect the NAD's pre-out to the input of the Carver Power Amp. You can then connect the Klipsch speaker to the Carver. Set the gain control on the NAD.

Now you should be able to control all the input and the main volume control from the NAD.

PreAmp to Amp problem


Sorted it. You have to put the plugs back in the PreampOUt/Main in or it cuts out the pre-amp.

Need a transistor spare part for NAD C340


Odd a transistor would have such a #. No 2Fanything series. It is most likely a 2SA949.... a PNP audio driver transistor.
It can be replaced by a NTE-383 (ECG383) transistor, though it's best to order the original # from a Japanese semiconductor supplier like MCM in Ohio.
It's best brought to a good hi-fi or guitar amp repir shop for a proper go-thru & repair.

Nad s200


It is most probably a dirty speaker protection relay. gently tap the relay(the one that engages shortly after turning the amp on) when the fault is occurring and see audio returns. This should ascertain the problem. Replace it if it is a sealed type, or if it has a "lid" you can get off, burnish the contacts with a white business card, and give it a spray with contact cleaner/lubricant. Good luck and a "fixYa" rating would be great for my profile :)
