Default Jungson JA-88D crackling and static fixed!

No requests or debates, just wanted to share a success:

Over the last year, my Jungson integrated started creating some crackle and noise from the left channel.

Checking the output, measured a dc offset of >200mV, and fluctuating about 50% higher sometimes. It did settle a bit after warning up, but never completely went away.

Found this site with some info on mods and schematics:


And located the trim pots top zero the positive and negative offset.

Now the amp is dead quiet! I think one of the protection circuits may have been fighting the output to try and reduce the offset.

Hopefully this may help someone in the future.

Hi Chillysalsa, I have the same problem on my Jungson JA88D. May I ask where the trim pots are located? I visited the link in your post and I wasn't able to find a schematic or a photo of what you're referring to.

The crackling is driving me nuts! Please help.
