1) Standby Switch: After turning the Peachtree220 on with the AC Power switch on
the back panel, this button will allow you to switch between “on” (blue light) and
“standby” (green light) . Standby draws very little power so we suggest leaving the
amplifier on from the back panel and using this switch for daily operations.

Check to be sure that both the power switch on the back
panel and the standby switch on the front panel are on. The

Troubleshooting

Be sure your system is not muted. Check the RCA/
XLR switch on the back panel to be sure the correct
input has been selected. Make sure your speaker wires
are properly connected to both the Peachtree220 and
the speakers.

and noise on your
Peachtree220
This is rare but when it happens it is usually due to
grounding problems. Do some trial and error tests with
the system. See if the noise goes away when certain
sources, like a computer, are unplugged from your preamp.
Try plugging your Peachtree220 and preamplifier in to
the same AC fixture. Please feel free to call Peachtree
service if the problem persists.

The Peachtree220 amplifiers have built in thermal/
distortion detection and will shut down before blowing the
amps. When they cool down they will turn back on. If the
amps do this when playing at a low volume you may have a
