The amp is fine. Chris had tried to create issues but he could not find a fault on the amp. he drive the amp into clipping but the distortion is max to be 0.05

Well... now you have an issue with one other component or your connectivity. Try your other component with a different amp.

So far I wiggle around with the RCA cables and speakers cable while playing music and everything seem fine.

From your very first post, you said "channel 2 cuts out".

What is channel 2, the right channel ?

If yes, plug everything form right to left, inputs, speakers... to see.

And, you should try to explain to us the best as you can the "cuts out".
I mean, does the cut is dry and instant (complete cut) or some sound
can be heard when cutting. Also did you noticed that the sound come back
without having to power off/on ?

Hey Nakamichi. My old lover stasis amp. I now believe it has nothing to do with the amp or the cables. I think it is more of the preamp and the dynamic volume setting.

I turn off dynamic volume and there are no distortion that I can detect. Vocal is clear. Bass is tight and define even though it is satellite speakers lol. My baby is sleeping right now so cannot further the test at a high volume. Since I can't detect any distortion, I don't think it will at high volume.

Channel 2 is the center channel

Hi Mike,
I see you called. I will be resting for a few days as I had a root canal done today. Still hurts a lot, there was a big abscess. Started Friday and by Monday I can't do anything.

It's not comfortable to talk, so give me a couple days. They finish on Thursday (yahoo)

-Chris

Hi Mike,
Procedure delayed to Monday, so maybe Tuesday. I'm all swollen due to an infection. This is the first time I've had problems with a root canal. It's still pretty painful.

You can send me an email of course.

-Chris
