Khartago and Fidelium = no sound
« on: 1 Aug 2023, 02:04 am »
I have a Khartago I bought in like 2016. It’s got the upgraded WBT speaker posts. I am hooking up Silversmith Fideliums and getting no sound. If I switch back to my old cables it’s business as usual.

What might I be doing incorrectly?

Can you snap a couple of pics of the Fideliums connected?  Hard to imagine they don't work at all.

Put the multimeter on the cable and test for resistance/conductivity.

Did you find a workaround?  Pics of the binding posts on both the amp and the speakers would help immensely.  I think I know what's going on here (or rather not) and pictures will tell me if my theory is correct.

In the event that you don't have proper alloy to alloy contact ,
you might need some of these adaptors ....

I think you and I are on the same bage, Bonk.  These are the binding posts in question




And



These require the adapters Bonk referred to.

OP, ya got yer ears (and eyes) on?
