    Hi all,

    Recently i have been noticing that the Left channel on my Hi-Fi "cuts out" randomly for a few seconds and then springs to life. I say "cut out" because the Left channel becomes quieter and gets what sounds like an interference sound.

    Now theres nothing I can do that reproduces the noise, no type of music or input. I have switched the speakers over and still get issues with the Left channel and also changed all cabling, still with the Left side. which leads me to believe its the amp.

    Any ideas on what this is and how to fix it?

    Regards

    Nizam

    Either back to Arcam or if out of warranty you could try to find a local repairer
