ARCAM 8 Power AMP fault?
To all who have experience with power amps....I have recently attempted to connect my Arcam 8P to my existing ACAM CD 72, ARCAM 8 (Pre amp) setup. I connected the CD 72 to the 8 (pre) as normal, connected the 8 pre (SP 1) ports to the hi frequency ports on the back of the AE AEGIS 3 sepakers, connected the 'pre-amp' outputs to the power amp inputs, and connected the power amp SP1 ports to the Low frequency speaker ports. (I also removed the coupling on the speakers). When playing CD, I only got sound on the hiher frequencies (the pre amp part). No bass (no power amp output).
When I removed the connnection from the pre-amp to the speakers, and put the coupling back on the speakers, i could not hear anything from the speakers unless I turned it up max- in which case I could faint hear high pitch beat of the CD.
Assuming cables are all fine (which they are), what does this sound like to you guys? Is the 8P broken or what? Dont wanna pay for 'fix' if it is bust, and dont wana pay for fix if it is me being a 'knob'. Thanks!...
