Says it all guys.

I sat down and put on an album and it played for around 1 minute with no problem and then the sound cut out.
The power to the equipment is good and I unattached cables and power plugs and reattached everything.
Don't get it.
I have a simple system....NAD 356 BEE amp, Tube-box S phono-stage and a Gold Note Valore 425 Plus.
I listened all week and last night and everything was totally fine. Then this.

Any ideas ?

Thanks as always.

BTW...when I turn the volume button up, there is literally no sound until I get to roughly "7" on the knob and a crackling high pitch comes out while the turntable was trying to play an album...other than that, all silence.

Can you play another source like a CD ? This might tell you if amp is the issue.

Check that the speakers cables at the speaker and the amp end are connected tightly. Hopefully you can get it solved and have a cold one.

What input are you using on the NAD 356 BEE?

Sounds like a dirty switch like the tape monitor.

Don't have another source other than my phone with a Bluetooth connection for the amp.
I just tried it and no sound at all.
I could replace my amp with an old Pioneer receiver and see what happens.

edit: thanks btw

I haven't changed anything at all since two years ago when I bought the amp...always use AUX.
Not sure why I bought an integrated amp lol because I am a one-dimensional record playing guy.
Oh, the tubes look to be normal, nice orange glow.

Thanks Ohms

First thing I thought of was a wire loose, causing a short. I did move one speaker slightly a week ago, um, er, to put up a Neil Young poster behind it. (lol) .... everything seems tight in the connectors.

Having a cold one now, that's how I troubleshoot best.

Hi Binky the Cat....it was red at first indicating an overload? on the NAD.
Then it stayed on solid blue. It was only red for under a minute.
Really weird.
Maybe I have to let it cool down for a few hours?
?
Thanks

Hi, I don't use a tape deck or the tape monitor switch...could that still pose a problem?

Did you try picking the amp up and shaking it?

Hi,

drywhitetoast is down.

When it stopped playing was there any whiff of electronic burnt vapour in the air? I am pretty sure you are going to find it is the amp - probably a power supply failure. It will be fixable if put it in the right hands.

Cheers,
David Neice

Maybe you blew a fuse in your amp. You may want to check the fuse visually to verify it is good. It's a possibility.

There is a fuse by the transformer. Try switching the soft clipping to off. Check your speaker cables, binding posts at your amp and speakers for shorts.
