Probably not power adapter
Hmm maybe something not transmitting power properly to the amplifiers inside and/or bad capacitors?

can hear audio briefly whenever I plug the power plug out of the speakers
Power supply is fine. Something wrong with the control or biasing circuit.

bit premature, but currently using the TP32EX+, don't really like the button controls for volume. got any recommendations of dac and amp combo, at least 50wpc?

SMSL AD18 should fit you fine, your TP32EX+ dun have RCA out right? Shag man, can sell off lor.
Not liking button controls is not premature man, i factored out getting that cuz I like my knobs, need that feel

Thanks! I checked power supply using multimeter, it can give about 12.7V but amphere not that sure (fluctuating between 0 and err 4?)

Sounds like the speakers are a lost cause then, given that repairing them don't seem worthwhile (their MSRP is about 120 bucks). I am even seeing sparks whenever I do that plug out thingy, which is why I don't want to proceed further.

Warranty was over according to friend who passed me these

See if you can find a 12V or 24V DC power adapter that fits

Some T40 came with an AC-AC power adapter, and the multimeter needs to be set to AC mode

This has AC output


This kind has DC output

have, RCA. i didn't think i would NOT like it this much.

you're using the AD18?

if you are how you like it?

i'm hoping to get one that is horizontal max height about 10cm, instead of vertical (as you can see no tabletop space)
