Yamaha DSP-A595A Cent Ch Distorted


Standard Member
Hi All
I have a problem with my Yam DSP-A595A Amp in as much when I have it on P/L or DD/DTS there is severe distortion from the centre channel speaker.
I have a set of mission speakers but have swapped the centre speaker and still get the same distortion. The sound is fine through the other speakers.

I appreciate its a long shot but does anyone have any ideas please? I am assuming the amp is u/s - I have connected other speakers using the centre cable from differing channels and that is fine. - So I know the cable and speaker are ok.

Please please any ideas to dsave me from having to buy another amp!

Many thanks in advance

well, if you've ruled out teh speakers and cable then i guess its likely to be the amp :(

you could find its worth asking a dealer if they can fix it.....depends on how much they quote....

might just be worth getting a new one if its a high quote...

unless someone else here knows what might be causing it and its easily fixable.....for your sake i hope it is :)

I can't remember whether this model had a feature to allow you to manually tweak individual channels (I had its successor, the A5, but this was a few years back*) - may be worth just double checking that you haven't inadvertantly increased the dB level on the centre channel in the settings menu ?

(Shot in the dark, I admit...)

*(Not a dig about the age of your amp - it is still a great model).

Thanks for your answers - I shall be investigating that this evening - right after the football!!

I will let you know what I discover!

No worries about the dig - people niggle me about age all the time!

Thanks again!
