    I'd be grateful for any advice on what steps I should take to decide where the fault lies with my Cyrus cd player and amp and Mission speakers.

    The system worked yesterday but I get no sound today. I've checked the obvious ... connections between cd player and amp and leads to speakers. The speakers 'crackle' occassionally when I wiggle the connections.

    What should I do? Or do I accept that it is an old system (a great system) and it is time to bid it farewell?

    Many thanks.

    So you have three components. CD Player. Amp. Speakers.
    Likely hood of all three failing at the same time is small.
    If I were you I would take them around to a mates who has a similar setup and one by one swap your components into his setup to identify which one is faulty.

    Once you have identified which component is not working, take a call on getting that component repaired or replacing it. This would depend on the original cost/value of the component and how expensive it would be to replace. You haven't given us model numbers for the kit.

    Your system could be worth a couple of hundred or it could be worth upwords of 5 grand depending on which Cyrus CD player, amp(s) and mission speakers you are talking about. If it is a 5 grand system then it is probably going to be worth investigating repairs. If it is a couple of hundred quid system maybe not.

    Sorry me talking twaddle. By the time I read OP initial post I had forgotten what the thread title was!

    That guy was obviously very handy with a soldering iron and diagnostic tools. I think for most 'normal' people best option might be to take it to service centre or repair shop! Even if it is the same issue as in the post, I personally wouldn't have the confidence to diagnose it as per the post and even if I did, not sure I fancy removing a 1k resistor from a PCB or whatever.
