Default Blown-up Azur 340A

I had the unfortune of blowing the output drivers of my Cambridge Audio Azur 340A.

Do you know which ICs are used in this amplifier and where to get them? There are two output driver chips at the center of the amp.

Regards,
Brge

I have some pics of the internals here. The opamps are NE5532. Not sure about the output drivers. Ive been looking for a service manual/schematics but found nothing yet.

Actually, I found out that I had blown the input selector. I fixed it a long time back. It did cost some money to get the new part, but the seller had no problem getting me the part.

What happened back then was kind of funny. I had readied a big setup for a demo of some wireless audio at my previous job. The demo connected via 3.5mm jack, and I had the cable ready and set up. To make things look nice before the demo itself I threw the cable into the cabinet with the amp and went to close its door. But at that time the funny smells came! Guess what, I had hit the loudspeaker terminals with the jack cable when I decided to tidy the place up :-)

Luckily I had a backup amp lying around!


Cheers,
Børge
