I bought this new when I was young, at the age of 14. Ten years later I trade it with a Pioneer. Luckely I could bought another one a week ago.
Altought every switch was crackling in the left channel I managed to solve that with contact spray.
The sound is so good. Our ears are used to mp3 and flatscreen tv speakers. So an old amplifier wins easy.
I adjusted the mA to 20mA. Left was 40 and right was 60mA! No recap necessary. The red LED doesn't work. And the bass potmeter is broken. Anyone who knows where I can buy these?

This Akai 2200 is a very good product. I've bought one for 29€ in a cash store and it is now my main amplificator, connected to two pairs of floorstanding speakers (A and B outputs) : a pair of Mission 763 on one hand, and a pair of JVC sx-f300 on the other. The result is incredible : very good sound, very good bass, medium and high tones very good too... Amazing for an only 2 x 20 watts amplificator... Everything works fine : all the buttons are functionnal, nothing is broken or so on... Note also that it does not get warm even after 3 or 4 hours of listening...

Well, now I cleaned every part of my Akai am-2200 with a deoxidiser for electrical contacts, and it works perfectly. This amplifier is a great joy. I am using it with a couple of vintage Acoustic Research AR-2ax. And I love it. Merry Christmas.

Hi, now I nave the following problem with my Akai AM-2200. The mode switcher does not work properly, I only can listen mono, when on stereo position only the right speaker works, the left one is mute. Any suggestion?

re: AM-2200

It seems that part of the service manual is missing. In section 5 MAIN AMP ADJUSTMENT (page 7) the adjustment is missing from this copy, is there anyone that have the adjustment for this amp?
