Re: BUYERS AND SELLERS BEWARE!

Wow, I know how Tom and Rich are feeling right now. I also have not received a paycheck since Oct. 1. I would love to send off my busted amp to Rich to fix and mod, to help him out. I would also liked to have helped Tom out with the shipping, but can't send what I don't have at the moment. Congrats ...

Re: What coax is better?

If it is for a sat cable you will need RG-6, and it needs to be solid copper center conductor. For sat cables I use perfect vision cable, for video applications I use Belden 1695 only. For the connectors I would only recommend using compression connectors.

Re: Multi port HDMI interface exist?

I'll bet that bad boy is more than 20 bucks \:D/ :lol: !! Oh, I am quite sure that it is more than twenty bucks, but I bet that the picture on your T.V. and other things won't look like you have them switched through something that was less than twenty bucks :-k :-k Actually I do not have any Paras...

Re: M1.0t died with a pop

Yeah, this thing is driving me crazy. The left channel was the good one. The ribbon cables have been taped, so, they have touched nothing. Checked the soldering and it checks good, never did solder anything on the left channel. I'll go through and check the resistors and transistors in each channel.

Re: M1.0t died with a pop

It seems that way. I'm getting no readings at the bias test pins, and nothing happens when I turn both pots in either direction to their stops on both channels. MP101 pin 2 shows 96.9v pin 3 shows -100v. MP102 pin 2 shows 15.5v and pin 3 shows -100. Voltage on pin 2 of MP102 keeps dropping and I not...

Re: M1.0t died with a pop

Yeah I know makes no sense. I wanted to try something so I hooked the input board back up and wanted to check the bias on each channel, get no reading, and turning the pots on each channel has no effect what so ever. Still get a good + and - 100v on TP5 and 6 and turning that pot does effect the vol...

Re: M1.0t died with a pop

Nope, that's + and - 100v at pin 2 and 3 at MP102 with the input power cable hooked up and off.

Q112 Pin 1 reads .0356v, and pin 2 reads .0521v with the input power cable hooked up.
Q111 Pin 1 reads .115v and pin 2 reads .032v with the cable hooked up

No buzzing and power is good.

Re: M1.0t died with a pop

Ok Rich, dummy me, was taking readings at Q112, brain dead!!
Yes, pin 1 and 2 read 100v and -100v.

I did try just plugging in the power cable to the input board and cannot leave it plugged in. The top LEDs light up yellow and stay on.

Re: Multi port HDMI interface exist?

Their cables are awesome for the price. I have a couple of their switches also and they work great.

Re: M1.0t died with a pop

I went to check pin 1 and 2 and noticed it move around when I touched it with the probe. I unhooked it and took it off, the solder joints on the transistor broke loose. Need to resolder them. I noticed many of the solder joints in this amp have very little solder on them.
