Greeting all. I haven't been on this forum for ages. I had my SX-880 fully restored in June of 2017. Now I find out it cuts out at half volume. I took a video: What should I do? Any help is greatly appreciated. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE! Full story below: Not sure if I should name the shop or not, but I think of them as high quality. I was on quite a waiting list and paid good money to have this thing fully reworked. Not trying to throw any blame at them - I want folks here to know that it was a quality job (I think). After restoration, I played it at home for several months at low volumes in my home. My main speakers were not ready yet and I just played everything through some old bookshelf Jensen speakers that I had. Honestly, I never even had this thing up to half volume on those speakers. I don't think they could handle it. Mostly vinyl and a little FM play. All sounded fine. No cutting out. Then I moved all the components to an office that I was planning on using. The receiver sat there unused for about 5 or 6 months. This past weekend, I finally finished refoaming my main speakers (AR58bs) and got motivated to hook everything up in my garage. Put on some vinyl and got things cranking. All sounded good, but then the receiver clicked off at just under half volume. It clicked back on in a few seconds and I figured it was some kind of protection circuit or something. The more I thought about it, the more it bothered me. I paid for this full restoration and I want a receiver that can crank to its full potential! Am I doing something wrong? I called the shop today to ask about it and they said that I have to "bring it in". Not really much help. The one person I talked to (not a tech) did mention that if it sits unused for a while it will "not charge the capacitors". Well... I don't really know about that, but I'd be surprised if the issue is that these things can't go more than a few months without being played. I live an hour away from this shop, so if I can get a head start on things here on AK, I will. Maybe even a full solution because I'm doing something dumb?!
