Newbie with Issues !!
Hi everyone. I have been visiting this site for years and thought I'd reach out to the experts.
I have a modest system, but to me it's my baby:
Atoll IN80 Amplifier
PMC GB1 Speakers
Grant Tube DAC-09
Rega Mini Phonostage
Cable Company Interconnect Cables
Legendary Audio Bi-Wire Speaker Cable (EBay)
My main issue is that when listening past 50% volume the amp gets HOT (like, fry an egg in 5 seconds hot) and the left speaker cuts out. I need to let the amp cool down for 20 mins before I can listen to another two songs (if that). I purchased this gear to get great quality but also decent volume. Sometimes 20% just doesn't cut it.
I dont know know much about the technical audio specifics so my first step was to get better speaker cable but could really use some advice before spending hundreds of dollars.
