4.1. IDLING CURRENT ADJUSTMENT
Connect the DC-volt meter at the BIAS measuring points (refer to service connectors) and adjust the idling
current via the trim potentiometer VR101/VR301 (located on the Main PCB). Adjust both channels of the power
amplifier A&B to U(DC) = 7.5mV. Adjusting the idling current has to be performed at normal room
temperature. In case the power amplifier had previously been operated, it has to be given several hours to regain
its normal temperature.
4.2. VCA - OFFSET
Rhythmically open and short-circuit CNS2.1 and CNS2.2 for channel A as well as CNS2.3 and CNS2.2 for
channel B. The switches are located on the Main PCB. Using VR100 or VR300 respectively to adjust the power
amplifier's Direct Output to its minimum offset (with oscilloscope to minimal peak value or to the audible
minimal volume of the interfering pulse).
5. Functioning test
5.1. OUTPUT - offset voltage
DC-voltage measuring at the Direct Output A/B with U(DC) 10mV.
5.2.1. Voltage limiter
Both channels separately driven without load via the Direct Output with a 1 kHz signal up to U(A) = 38V.
Increase the input voltage by 10 dB. The LIMITER LED lights and the output voltage ascents by approx. 1.5 dB
or 2.5 dB respectively to approx. 44V or 52V, respectively. The distortion rate of the limited signal should not
ascent above 0.8%.
5.2.2. Distortion limiter
Both channels separately driven via the Direct Output at 2 with a 1 kHz signal up to U(A) = 20V or U(A) =
25V, respectively. Increase the input voltage by 5 dB. The LIMITER LED lights and the output voltage ascents
by approx. 1.5dB to approx. 25V or 29V respectively and it is slightly clipping. The distortion rate of the limited
signal is approx. THD = 2 ... 3%. Further increasing the input signal by +10dB should not result in a remarkably
higher clipping of the output signal.
5.2.3. Attack- and release times
separately testing the power amplifier channels is mandatory: Test has to be performed at the Direct Output
1.) Drive the power amplifier's input with a burst signal (f = 1kHz, 10 cycles, rate : 3 sec.) and U(E) = +10dBu.
2.) Monitor the output signal via oscilloscope. After 1 - 2 signal periods, the limiter has reduced the major
distortion to a minor residual distortion (THD 1%)
attack time: approx. 2 ms release time: approx. 130 ms
5.3 POWER-ON DELAY
Feed the test signal to the power amplifier input. Switch the power amplifier ON using the "Power On" switch.
Approximately 2 seconds after pressing the "Power On" switch, the signal is present at the output.
5.4 POWER REMOTE
Switch the power of the appliance OFF. Feed a control voltage of +24V to the Power Remote input. The power
amplifier has to start operation and after disconnecting the control voltage has to go off again.
5.5 FAN CONTROL
Upon powering-on the power amplifier, the fans will run for approximately 2 seconds and stop when the power
amplifier has re-gained its "normal" temperature. In idling condition (power-on, no signal present) the fans are
switched between the SLOW and OFF mode, depending on the heat sink's temperature. Connecting the CNS1.8
via a 5k resistor to +15V lets the fans run in SLOW mode. A FAN VOLTAGE of 16.8V DC can be measured
between pin CNS2.4 and pin CNS1.4. When disconnecting CN5, the fans will run in FAST mode. A FAN
VOLTAGE of 28V DC is measured between pin CNS2.4 and pin CNS1.4.
5.6 SOAR-PROTECTION TEST
Channels separately driven up to 0dB via the Direct-Output, terminated with 4. Parallel connect an 1 resistor.
The protection circuit reacts and tries continuously to re-start! The protect-LED lights.
5.7 SHORT-CIRCUIT CURRENT-LIMITING TEST
separately testing the power amplifier channels without load is mandatory:
- drive the channel with a burst signal (f = 1kHz, 1-3 cycles, rate 1 sec.), at the Direct Output with
U(E) = 0dBu.
- connect a load resistor of 1.
- the short-circuit current-limiter limits the output voltage at the load resistor symmetrically (monitor via
oscilloscope!) to a peak voltage value of 15V or 20V respectively (approx. 15A or 20A respectively maximum
peak output current).
5.8 DC-voltage and HF-Protection Circuit
- Testing the protection circuitry against the occurrence of DC-voltage and HF at the output is only possible
directly via the Main PCB when it is not installed in the appliance.
5.9 INDICATORS TEST
Feed a 1kHz sine signal while slowly increasing the level. At approx. -30dBu the SIGNAL LEDs will light and
at approx. +1.5dBu the Limit LED will light.
