Recently my sound has been cutting out - at first infrequently and not for long, and now all the time and for indefinite periods of time. What I mean by this is at first it was for a few seconds every few days or so. Now it's constant, and the interruptions can last...well, up to the whole drive. The head keeps playing, just without audio so I figured it was the amp but everything looked normal. Today I pulled the head out and double checked all the connections, then went in back and pulled and reconnected all the wires. Now the amp starts right in protection mode - just the red light is on, not the blue power one. Thoughts? It's around 5 months old, and I'm using channels 1 & 2 to drive my MM6501s up front and 3 & 4 are bridged and powering an SR104. Thanks guys.
EDIT: Also, I know that these are supposedly very efficient and cool (hence no fan), but do they overheat? It was pretty damn hot to touch when I checked it out
