AVR shutdown and went into protect mode
Well, my Aventage RX-A820 broke.
I was listening to it in 2 channel pure direct mode, with no speakers connected to the AVR, only 2 lines out to a power amp which was connected to my FL and FR speakers.
Admittedly I was cranking it, but the power amp was not being worked hard and there was no sonic distortion to speak of. Mid song the AVR switched off and would not come back on again.
Heat at the time was negligible.
Unplugging, waiting and trying again did nothing. So it is now at the repair center. But I don't want to do this again, so I am wondering if I could have caused the fault.
any guesses as to what went wrong?
could I have had a setting mistake? If I am simply using the the AVR as a processor with the preouts, is there any special thing I have to do in the menus?
