Not quite the oldest, remember the Intek!

The Majik I has been incredibly reliable over the years.

Doug, time to get it to a technician.

You know we have never had an Intek through the business. 36 Majik i but no Intek. Don't remember being offered one either. Not sure what this says for the Intek

CJ

I sold many of them, never get them back for service except the odd one to clean the volume control. To my knowledge, they are all still being used and loved!

To go off at a tangent, how were the Pretek and Powertek amps for reliability?

They were just as good, just re-sold a set that were still working perfectly.

I have a Majik amplifier driving Keilidh speakers and have had the set up for the 25 - 30 years. Yesterday I was getting a buzzing feedback through the speakers so I switched the amp of.
When I powered the system back up the power light came on but nothing else works.....no digital display and no sound.
Can anyone suggest what I need to do to rectify?
Many thanks,
Doug


Suggest give Darren at Class A Hi Fi Servicing and Repairs in Sheffield a call. He's very helpful and capable (can probably diagnose the problem over the phone even before you send it in) - he put in new power supplies in my LK100s when my long-standing local dealer said they were too old to get parts for and were no longer supported by Linn. He also replaced the capacitors at same time (as they gradually deteriorate) so the amps should be good for another 25 years!
