Arcam Alpha 9

This amp came in for repair after the client stated his girlfriend had been connecting up the speakers and had managed to short the speaker cables. There’s at least a couple of morals in that tale, the most important being ‘switch off ‘ before you connect or disconnect speakers-and inputs in fact as the resulting transient can easily damage speakers too.

Despite sophisticated protection circuitry the amplifier had blown its output transistors. Once replaced the amplifier is singing away sweetly again.thumb_IMG_1180_1024
