Hello:)

Just wanna ask this problem. Since I bought a t amp s from Arjens a long time ago, I just got a chance to assemble it by my own.but the out come is not good. If you turn the power on you can hear this pop up noise from the speakers.I don't wanna ruin my bookshelf speakers. Is there any solution for this? I know how to solder,understand diagrams and make a circuit connection.

Thanks and more power,
ps: t-amps MKII 2020, I dont know if Arjens still selling this on ebay.
 
I had a similar problem with an IRs2092 class d amp.
It clicked, made a loud crack and sometimes sounded like a siren !

Turned out the 2092 doesn't like large smoothing capacitors.
They make the power supply come up slowly and go down slowly.
I found the simplest fix was to add an 8 pin PIC with analogue to digital converter to monitor the power supply and hold off the 2092's reset if the voltage was out of range.

Adjust bias voltage to 0mV (using those blue potentiometers).
You can use these same instructions for Arjens TA2020:
6moons audio reviews: Trends Audio TA-10


from trends ta 10 manual:
"4.1 Offset the DC bias voltage of the speaker terminals
There are two blue adjustable potentiometers (Rt) for offsetting the DC bias voltage between the positive (+ve) and negative (-ve) terminals of each channel. Offset this DC bias voltage can enhance the purity of the sound and minimize the “pop" sound when power on and off. The DC bias has been pre-set in factory. But after run-in for a period, it would be slightly changed that the fine-tuning is needed."

Got yah, But this MkII pcb board doesn't have an Offset bias adjustment. Ill try to check the voltage output and let you know what is the outcome.
