If you i have cd playing through my amp and my wife doesnt turn the the amp to cd from dvd the amp puts the music through effect mode but at a volume of -10 the amp cuts out is this normal or is there a problem with it, its fine if you have it on source direct (2 channel)any ideas before i speak to my dealer :confused: :confused:

That doesn't sound at all good to me, when you say 'the amp cuts out', do you mean it swiches off ?, if so it's going into protection mode so I suspect you have a problem with your speaker connections, I am about to wire my AX5i for bi amping today so will see if it improves quality.

My dvd player is connected witht he fire wire lead and i have some phonos from the dvd player to the amp for cd playback
if i play a cd in the dvd player and leave the amp on dvd mode the sound comes through no problem but if you increase the volume to -10 the amp goes into protection mode.
just wanted to know if this was normal its not a hassel for as i always select cd on the amp to listen to cds in stereo mode direct
just thought it was a bit odd :confused: :confused:

Is the cd connected by digital output of via analogue sockets ?

I still haven't wired my speakers for bi amping yet, will do so this evening, I hope it doesn't stress the amp more as don't have a lot of ventilation space above it and the manual says you need at least 60cm above - I think that's a little extreme but don't want it overheating.

Analogue phono leads

I just tried to replicate the problem on my Ax5 but couldn't hear anything if playing cd and have dvd selected.

Strange one me thinks.

I notice you have the Mission M5as, what do you think to it ? I have the same and find it really annoying that the power on doesn't stay activated for longer, superb build quality though.
