    Angry Upgraded from RX-A2030 to CX-A5000 + MX-A5000 but the amp still shuts down!

    Ok guys, I'm getting frustrated here with YAMAHA products. I need your expert opinion and possible solutions to my problem. I need to know what is wrong.


    I had initial system with a problem detailed here: http://www.hometheaterequipment.com/...786/#post35727


    So I've decided to upgrade. Here is the update:


    I returned the RX-A2030 and I have upgraded to separates: CX-A5000 + MX-A5000


    The amp keeps on shutting down again at around 0 dB volume level! but the Pre-amp stays on.


    I need to know what is wrong! Is it the speakers?? Is it possible that the one of the fronts have a defect?


    PLEASE HELP!

    It's possible that you have a short in your speaker wiring or something going on with one of your speakers.

    What speakers are you using? Are they 4 ohm?

    Could there possibly be a low voltage situation with your power outlet?

    Try running the speakers only one at a time (only one hooked up to the amp) to try and trace the wiring. That's most likely is the culprit.

    Any updates?

    Since your AVR also had this issue, it would seem to be something with your wiring, speakers, or electrical in your home.
