Before you replace the fuse and power it up I would use a bulb in series with the supply to act as a current limiter:

The A X9 looks very much like the 1010! Big traffo and parallel power transistors. Even the back panel is the same colour!
They go for mad money though.

Always wanted an AX SD-1 but they're few and far between and when they do crop are way overpriced.

There's actually a full SD stack for sale in the Netherlands for €2k including an unused tape deck, all one owner JVC employer owned IIRC.

Tempting but it would mean the hassle of getting rid of the rest.

Looks to be in good condition, cosmetically atleast, I like that they put the markings on the knobs for the balance and tone controls. Good luck with the referbishment, looking forward to your comparisons.

Just installed my spare A-X4 in daughter's system with some Diamond 1s. Sounds awesome actually.

Not good enough (by a margin) to usurp the Avondale downstairs, but a fine amp.

I can only think the Naim stuff was doing something very wrong.

Having said that, the JVC is very very good but doesn't match my Tisbury passive/Avondale NCC200 dual mono into my Kefs.

But of course we all have different tastes and listen to different music, different speakers and all.

So, one of the output transistors is fried!
What caused it to go bang is unknown at this point.
Will be a Christmas project as I don't have the time right now.
I'd be happy to pay someone a reasonable amount to do it for me?

Andrew is a great friend but I donít see eye to eye to him on this and significantly preferred his previous Naim gear - each to their own hey .

I also use an LVii but that is the only Linn thing I now own!

Soon to be replaced with a custom built 12" - watch this space...
