Sometime around the end of last week, it didn't do the Phzzt sound, the meter didn't jump, and started out okay. Then I noticed a buzz from the right channel , but if I lowered the volume knob on the AMP, it went away (only about 1/4 to 1/6 or so turn back from full volume). I then noticed another time upon power up, it would buzz at the lower volume. Then next time I would power it up, I could hear the buzz only if I cranked it up. It wouldn't buzz at the lower levels. (I do want to eventually want to send to Rita's shop, but just not yet)!
Well the other day, I was listening to the radio, and it sounded like I had static across the station. It turns out the right channel was staticy. But it would go away. (I thought it may be my shitty reception, but then I noticed it while listening to an LP.). Okay, has to be the amp. But the static was intermittent and I would only have a buzz at higher volumes. Now my days have been getting hectic and stressful... last night I go to pull the amp from the top of my receiver, and doesn't the shitty monster cable interconnect pull off my right channel RCA jacket on the amp. F***. So I take the cover off and undo the back and resolder my input jack on (simple enough, worked good) Put the amp back in service, and again, only a slight buzz at higher volumes. So I turn on amp tonight, and notice that static noise.
