Question Niggling problem with Arcam Solo

Hello All,

Sorry, some begging on annoying issue with my relatively new Arcam Solo bar. Whenever I turn it on, it turns itself off after some time (not measured but it's probably a few minutes) and I have to turn it on again, after which it's ok. Does that even when there is a source i.e. TV, box, or other. I looked at forums and couldn't find anybody with same problem. I tried changing settings on the bar and looked at the manual, no luck.
Maybe it's just a faulty unit, but this feels more like some setting or incompatibility of some sort. Anyone got any idea? I know it's an old equipment but I really like it BTW, coupled with the Sub it's really great for my setup. Given that I no longer want or can invest into pure audiophile stuff like Arcam used to do, I console myself with the sound bar :)
Thanks,
Arnaud.

It might be worth talking to Arcam. it does sound like a fault, but it might be quite cheap to repair, especially if you're happy with it. Better the devil you know ...

i owned one of these a couple of years ago. It does unfortunately sound like a fault. Mine never did anything like your problem in the 7 months of ownerhip.
