Hi guys, my first time posting here. I had a issue with one of my PLC1 a few days ago. I have one in the tube system, and one in the HT system. I have the one in the HT system configured for bypass on input four, and I am using the tape input as input five for my turntable.
Well a few days ago I decided to play a LP in the HT system. I got the TT and phono stage going, lowered the arm on the LP, went to switch inputs from my tuner on input two to the phono input, but mistakenly hit input four, which of course produced no sound because that's HT bypass, then realizing that, I went straight to the tape input. The system then came on FULL blast, like the PLC let through the full volume to the amp.
I dived for the volume control, but that had no effect, I had to hit the power switch on the amp to save the speakers.
After I settled down from trying to figure out why that happened, muted the PlC then went to tape input again and the TT played normally.
So what I would like to know for sure is, did that happen because I went from HT bypass to the tape input and the PLC was still in pass trough mode ?
Will that happen only with the tape input ?
Should I always get out of the HT bypass before going to the tape input.This was the first time I went straight from HT bypass to tape input, I have gone from HT bypass to the other inputs without any problems.
I hope this can by explained, because I can't figure a reason why that should have happened except for some glitch.
