Default Orion Xtreme 800

Amp powers up and produces both + - rail voltages also produces the 5 volt regulated voltages..

Cleaned all switches and moved the pots up and down about 50 times..

Amp has very low output ..

Any ideas?

Do you see any 2N... transistors near the 8-pin op-amps?

Post a photo of the board.

The mute-drive circuit isn't turning the muting transistors off. I don't have anything on this amp so I'll have to wait on photos before I can help.

Thanks but i never use NTE parts in amps ...

They are expensive and some amps do not like thoose parts and have had bad outcomes using thoose
