Hey,

I posted this in Audio section but had no luck so wondered fi anyone in here could help?

All of a sudden there is no sound from my nait2... it lights up but there is no thump when I switch the power on.

Anyone got any ideas as to what it could be? Anything easy I can check or am I looking at a big bill from naim? It was serviced by them in 2001.

Thanks for any help.

Regards,

Miles

Are you concerned about resale value of the item? I ask because it will go down dramatically if you bodge about with it (like so many of us in here :) )

Next, try the daft stuff first:

Are all the cables connected properly?

if you have more than one source, does swapping the inputs make a difference?

Naims have a characteristic hiss that comes from the speakers when the amp is switched on. Is the hiss present ?(stick your ear against a tweeter!)

If everything is connected fine and you've still got no sound, you need to ask yourself: do I want to whip the lid of and mess around with multimeters etc? If so, I'm sure someone here can talk you through diagnosing Nait problems.

Good luck!
Cheers,
Carl

It must be a power supply problem

My best guess given its had a fairly recent service is a blown rectifier.

or one of the tranformer leads has come adrift
