1 INTRODUCTION This service manual is intended to assist trained and qualified technical personnel in verifying the performance of, adjusting, and repairing the ADCOM GFA-5500 amplifier. The procedures described here are not intended for persons unfamiliar with the appropriate safety and test procedures. TEST PROCEDURES · All tests are performed with a 115V, low-distortion (less than 2% THD), AC-power source, 8-ohm resistive load (except slew rate), and a signal source of not more than 600 ohms. · An 80kHz low-pass filter is employed during THD distortion measurements. · Signal-to-noise measurements are -A- weighted. · Damping factor is measured by comparing the 1 watt output voltage with and without an 8 ohm load. · Slew rate is measured with an inductive load, and is derived with a dual-time-based oscilloscope reading the slope of a full power 5kHz square wave. DO NOT OPERATE THE AMPLIFIER AT FULL-POWER SINE WAVE ABOVE 22kHz OR FULL-POWER SQUARE WAVE ABOVE 5kHz. CORRECT BIAS ADJUSTMENT IS CRITICAL TO THE PERFORMANCE OF THIS AMPLIFIER. MAXIMUM OUTPUT POWER, MINIMUM THD AND HEAT DISSIPATION ARE AFFECTED BY THE BIAS SETTING AND MUST BE CORRECT TO MAINTAIN THE SONIC QUALITY AND LONGEVITY OF THE AMPLIFIER. BIAS ALIGNMENT Prior to performing BIAS ALIGNMENT turn unit on and allow to idle for approximately 5 MINUTES before attempting adjustments. 1. Connect millivoltmeter across emitter resistor R52 for left channel (R51 for right channel) 2. Adjust bias pot P2 until meter reads 50mV +/- 5mV DC OFFSET ADJUSTMENT 1. Connect millivoltmeter across speaker output 2. Adjust DC offset pot P1 until meter reads 0mV +/- 10mV WARNING THERE ARE POTENTIALLY LETHAL VOLTAGES WITHIN THE GFA-5500 AMPLIFIER WHICH WILL BEACCESSIBLE ONCE ITS TOP COVER IS REMOVED. DO NOT ATTEMPT FAMILIARIZATION,INSPECTION, OR ANY PROCEDURE WHATSOEVER UNLESS YOU HAVE DISCONNECTED THE GFA-5500 FROM THE WALL AC OUTLET OR OTHER SOURCE OF AC POWER AND THE POWER-SUPPLYCAPACITORS ARE COMPLETELY DISCHARGED. THESE INSTRUCTIONS ARE PROVIDED FOR USEONLY BY COMPETENT TECHNICAL PERSONNEL. DO NOT UNDERTAKE ANY SERVICEPROCEDURES IN THE GFA-5500 UNLESS YOU ARE TECHNICALLY QUALIFIED TO DO SO.IMPORTANTBEFORE PROCEEDING WITH ADJUSTMENTS, MAKE SURE AMPLIFIER IS AT ROOMTEMPERATURE.
