    no temp sensor, but the protection circut will essentially do teh same thing.

    most any decent amp on the market will have protection built in.

    Honnestly, if it doesn't, it's crap.

    In fact, i'd be willing to say that instead of saying

    good amp, because of the protection circuitry.
    I'd rather say:

    if it doesn't have protection circuitry, it's a crappy amp.

    if you can make the distinction there.

    i'd venture to bet that, as the others have said, there's something internal that's no longer making a solid connection.

    check all of the solder joints (this COULD take a while).

    Pics? Even better; in focus pics. IE, use the macro setting when taking close-ups of circuit boards... Not sure I recall ever seeing a 'gouge thing' inside an amp.

    Taken out of context; he said his amp was broken. by saying "good amp" I meant 'not broken'.


    Legacy amps have protection circuitry, but I recall someone saying Lecacy is crap.

    It looks as though someone has already repaired part of it using that red wire as a jumper, there is still one trace that is damaged and would need the same treatment. There is one solder point at the bottom of the pic, if there is another one (can't see from the pic), then you could do the same with that.
