CHART FIVE

Sound poor on more than one source

Both channels

It is highly improbable that both speakers systems, or cables in both channels, would be defective simultaneously. These components can be ignored when both channels sound bad. Proceed as follows:

Sound system has separate preamp and power amplifier units, and a CD player, tuner or a tape player with built-in playback preamplifier (and volume controls):

Connect outputs of CD player, tuner, or tape player directly to the power amplifier inputs.

Sound system has integrated amplifier, and sound is poor on two or more sources:

Probability is very high that the amplifier is defective

Sound OK:

System preamp is defective.

Sound still poor:

System preamp is OK, and power amp is defective.
