Understatement I would say, came home earlier, switched on system, to find one channel lacking, high winds today, window open , which was enough to dislodge one of the connections, going to take a look to see if they can be tightened.

I don't recall this being an issue when they were new.

The connectors on the end of the cables from the power supply can be disassembled and the contacts can be tightened up with a pair of small pliers.

IMPORTANT: This must be done after unplugging the entire amplifier from the wall for several hours. Check the terminals with a multi meter before disassembling anything and make sure all voltages are zero.

Spray the male and female contacts with Caig DeOxIt spray and clean the male contacts with a small piece of magic eraser.
