Audionet AMP 1 idle current
Hi friends,

i have an Audionet AMP 1 Amp and the idle current is not ok. The left channel is very hot and the other side is ok. I think the current is the problem. Can you help me to get the correct setting?

Have you thought of measuring what the bias is now ?

(the MOSFET types that Audionet uses operate 'best' at 150mA minimum bias each. I gathered that Audionet biases them at 200, makes 400mA in the 2-pair AMP I, 600mA in the 3-pair output device monoblocks)

thanks for your info but can you say me where are the measure points? Is a picture helpful?

At the source resistors, which are tricky in the Amp I, due to the stacked board SMD setup.
Bias is set at the drivers, trimpot on the top PCB (Audionet fancies a driver for each output device)

Your amp boards look pretty much like this (different model, but close to identical boards)
See the trimpot on the second floor ?

ok i find the trimpotīs and the measure points. One channel 200mv other channel 140mv. I set both channels to 200mv the temp is identical now. On the audionet homepage is written 0,4A. Now is my setup ok. Thanks for your help :)

best regards

200mV ?

0.4A bias is 200mA per output device.

yes 200mV per channel...
here my measure points -----> with 200mV which would correspond to 200mA per channel. I hope so

Hi i have set the current as i wrote it two years ago. But my problem is, the temperature is to hi. More then 10 seconds to hold the hands on is not possible. Is it ok? I think thats not ok but the current is set to 200mA.

Thanks Chris
