I just bought a SANSUI AU-D11II INTEGRATED AMP in beautiful condition through ebay. It's certainly an impressive beast, but what's with the 'PROTECTOR'? Obviously it's a safety measure to prevent damage to the amp or speakers or both, but it keeps kicking in, making use of the amp difficult, so, I must be doing something wrong, I figure. The amp is 130 WPC as far as I'm aware and I'm using it with a set of SP-X7000s and a set of SP-7300s that I am using together (set to speakers A+B) but something is definitely amiss as the PROTECTOR keeps kicking in and cutting everything out! What SHOULD I be doing for more successful operation? I've tried both settings (4-8 and 8-16 ohms), the upper setting producing the best results with speakers A+B but it's far from perfect. Am I causing damage? Does it sound as though there's a fault? HELP! I'M REALLY STUCK! I'm no expert obviously I just LOVE these heavy old Sansui amps and proper big-beast, vintage Sansui speakers - There's nothing like 'em. I just want to get the thing running happily. If anyone with knowledge on the subject has any suggestions Id really be very grateful.
