Electric Shocks from brand new cambridge 340a
Just wondering if i could have some advice please
What it is, wenesday this week i purchased my new 340a cambridge amp, i hadnt had chance to have a real good listen with it hooked up to the rest of my rig until yesterday early afternoon,
I have a spare bedroom where i do my djing and general listning and never use a remote with any of my gear because everything is set at a station to hand, so everything gets switched manually,
Anyway, seen as though i had my new amp i thought it was as good of an excuse as any to dig through my old box of cassettes, so there i am sat in front of my system twidling with the knobs etc lol and all of a sudden i get a mega shock from somewhere on the system,
I thought wooow whats going off here lol as you would, and put the shock down to my wiring, i checked the wiring, everything semt ok , no shocks from anywhere on the system, so i proceded with my afternoons listning. 15 minutes later same thing happened again and continued to happen intermitantly in 10 minute stages until i get a mega mega shock lol which scared the life out of me i checked the wiring again, then disconncted everything and did an individual seperate fault test only to find that the metal plate on the front of the Cambridge was the culprit for the jolts.
Now, ive phoned the stockist i bought the amp from and they are more than happy to swap the 340a for another, but to be honest the cambridge has now doused the respect i had for the brand, as i see it like a new car having a dangerous fault from basically day one, not a very good way to start your beautiful friendship together..
Im wondering if anyone could reccomend another amp that would be a good alternative for me and my bedroom set up, i had more of a budget to spend on an amp than i actually spent on the 340a but thought that perhaps more watts etc would be a waste in the bedroom scenario.
Any thoughts, my budget is up to around £250
Thankyou and sorry for any bad spelling
