    hello all.

    i have recently acquired a pioneer a-300x amplifier. i have fixed the input source selector switch just leaving the volume control to get right before a repaint and putting it to intended use.

    can you help please?

    it's supposed to be friction locked - but the outer dial doesn't take the inner with it. it also crackles through both channels during adjustment. i could use contact cleaner to quieten it and glue the dials together but i would rather fix it properly. is there a method?

    it's actually an alps pot - the following is written on it - 100kbx2, act1063a and 3i0c. having trawled alps's website i failed to find a match. anyone know where one could be obtained please?

    i'll post pictures if anyone is interested.

    many thanks - bludclot (artatak)

    many thanks for all your replies.

    having contacted pioneer directly and some of their independent appointed repairers of my own accord i learned that the 1063-a pot has gone nla and nobody would admit to having one sat on the shelf.

    i stripped my dodgy pot and thoroughly cleaned all it's internals. once re-assembled it worked beautifully.

    my garage system now has a rather sweet a-300x at it's heart.
