It’s good news that a new amp is winging its way to you.

Lucky you gets to unbox another new toy.

Did they mention what they thought had caused the problem?

Did they ever test it with those 4ohm speakers?
yes they tested the A-S3000 with monitor audio platinum speakers which are a 4ohm speakers but I didn’t realise that at the time

the amplifier ran for a day with them with no issues then after the weekend on Monday they went to turn the amplifier on but nothing it was completely dead which for me was good because I didn’t want it back because I knew it had a issue .

Audiovisual do not have anything to test properly if there is a problem as the Yamaha would have to be sent off to Yamaha which I’ve spoken to Yamaha tech about the A-S3000 .

The Yamaha tech guy I spoke to said it sounded like it was something to do with the power supply but said when we get it here we hook up the Yamaha A-S3000 to a computer and that will tells us what the fault was on the last shut down which I thought was pretty clever that amplifier can tell you this .

Well my Yamaha A-S3000 arrived at 245pm this afternoon I was being very careful this time around I just unpacked it put it on the rack and left it there for a couple of hours even though it’s not that cold outside I didn’t want to take chances then hooked it up and started it and left it on a very low volume .

As I also had family around so couldn’t really listen to it which I found frustrating but on a very positive note the amplifier has been working for around 3 hours without any issues so far which is good news and looks like I’ve got my self a good amplifier this time around .

I basically need to put some hours on the amplifier before I can really say about the sound but it’s a lot different then the Yamaha A-S2100 a lot different in many ways but that’s not to say that the Yamaha A-S2100 is not a good amplifier it is .

But so pleased I’ve not got a dud amplifier this time around and look forward in the Yamaha A-S3000 opening up to show me what it’s capable off which I am sure I will not be disappointed .

The bast**ds Photobucket changed their terms and conditions a few months ago so that now you need to pay them if you want the public to be able to view your pictures. Unless you pay their ransom, I mean fee, all that everyone else will see is this image:

flickr is still free to use though and can be used to post pictures to forums.

I just tried to join for free and it will not let me are there any other apps for the iPad you can use to upload on here as I’ve tried google photos which used to work but not anymore

Flickr is still free to use and I'm pretty sure it works on the iPad to but I cannot be certain as I'm a PC user. Maybe someone else with an iPad can help?
