    I had a similare problem.... and thought I was going to have to send it back. As one last try I disconnected everything and went through a process of elimination.. wierd thing is when I connected everything back up it was fine!

    I haven't seen a single person in this country have shut down problems with this amp. I think I've seen 3 in the US but only with 4 Ohm speakers and at very high volume.

    Attach you speakers 1 at a time to see if there is a problem with a particualr speaker or amplification channel.

    Mine's fine too. I'm using banana plugs at the amp and speaker ends, which I soldered myself to ensure they were done correctly.

    My speakers are 6ohm and 8ohm designs so I run the 2011 in 6ohm mode. It's never had any problems, although I don't listen to it particular loud I guess.

    I did hear that the very early UK 2011s may have had the same problem with early cut-out that plagued the US version... maybe you got one of these units?
