Quoted: <IMO, JRC4558 can be replaced, to NE5532 if you want go for budget one. That cheapo op-amp are some better than JRC4558, for better ones try go for LME49720 or LME49860 depends on the power supply voltage. Other Burr Brown op-amp such as OPA2604 or OPA2134 can try out also but i personally not like it for swapping purpose, coz it does not sound like the way it like.>

Thanks for your suggestions! What do you think of S5532(1986/87/89), OP275 and AD827SQ/883B(quite expensive...)? Between S5532 and OP275, which one is better? One more thing, ACS 45.1 runs at a single 12V power supply(correct?).

waste money and time on opamp, when the source is going to be from 'somewhere' and the stock speakers cannot go 'there'
too much limitations on this set.
for fun's sake, just hit 'whatever' comes first =)

yeah single, and the powerbrick sucks brix

The limitation of the source? Is it the TDA7370B, or from the sound card, the computer? So, for fun purpose as well as improvement, what else cound be done on it at this moment?

Yes, S5532 is NE5532. It has a big "S" before the printed model number, and they were manufactured in the older days, someone said those older-manufactured stocks is good at sound. By the way, I have no idea of it.

Not sure about that, but most use NE5532 from Texas Instruments, which i also found to have good quality fabrication. Use a DIP8 socket so you can swap it anytime. thumbup.gif

limitations, come in all forms, from the speaker itself to the soundcard....
it was no meant to be real hi-fi in the first place!

if you ask me,
=) just use whatever you have at hand and easy to get.

cosef has great ideas about opamps....and modding in detail =) he is the pro person to ask this part

Yes, I know the limitations. From the start, I know the purpose-built design of ACS 45.1 is by no means hi-fi equipment, the aim of modding it is just for fun as well as improving its sound quality! After the 1st & 2nd phase modding, I would say the sound quality does improve a lot though it uses TDA7370B which has a 10% THD , it can even to some extent challenge some mini or entry-level hi-fi systems!

Besides, the size of this ACS 45.1 fits the limit room, it's easy to connect a hi-fi system to my computer but difficult to place them since they take up a lot of space!

So, I'll keep up modding it depending on the possibilties and of course the cost effective. Perhaps it's no more an ACS 45.1 since I have even had the satellite speaker units replaced years ago too. That's why I enquired for the possible advantages of having op-amps and some others ICs replaced.

So my sis just bought a pair of VS4621 from pikom pc fair, and the sound only comes out from right satellite, left satellite has no sound at all (idk why she never test it before buying it) All the jack and RCA are properly plugged in.

Could it be the white RCA problem? (It's the one connected to the left satellite) Anybody having same problem?

Dual op-amps:
1 x AD828AR + 3 x OPA2132U for sound card.
5 x NE5532AN(80's big S version) or OPA275, OPA627, OPA2604, AD827...for ACS45.1.

Qual op-amp: AD713, LT1014...for ACS45.1.

Prices depend on which models I'm going to take, it maybe several tens or over a hundred US dollars in total. By the way, a limit amount of money, just thinking whether it's worthy of putting them onto such a low-value ACS45.1.

However, there's no real demonstration, not sure whether there will be improvement, so quite confused of which one will be better, and even consider whether go replacing those op-amps.

The order is still waiting for my confirmation...not yet decided.

use solder iron, re-melt the solder (all)... when it is old. it dries up and cracks out leaving the part unconnected

1st-phase modification: left & right channels rebuilt independently as well as all the cables replaced inside out.

2nd-phase modification: replacement of nearly all the electrolytic capacitors.

It's been a long road for a newbie like me, getting the original ACS45.1 from there to here, from live to death, from death to live again...! There's a saying: never trouble trouble till trouble troubles you...! No, that's not the way! Modding keeps going on!

3rd-phase modification: all the op-amps have to be replaced.

Let's see how it's going to be...report later!

First comes the AD713KN and "Big S" NE5532AN..., to be honest, the quality of sound does improve a lot even the NE5532AN by no means any high-class op-amp!

congrats, now you just need to change the sub woofer cable to direct solder
if you don't change the sub speaker cable, there will be 'bass lag' mili seconds sound slow reach....

At the initial modding stage, I did solder the subwoofer cable onto the pcb directly. However, later on it had broken the fragile soldering pads, so I removed it.

Now I'm trying to figure out drilling holes on the pcb for a cable connector as picture below shows.

hey all, one proud ADA885 user here.

just bought optical to coaxial spdif converter and now i have digital sound from my laptop to ADA885. i used dolby digital live and now i have 6-channel sound, compared to 4 using quad mode, as well as much lower hissing when not using the speakers. im pretty sure it could also be used for PS3 or XBOX360, so can get surround sound instead of stereo through the analog. got it for 15usd incl. shipping so it's pretty worth it for this feature in ADA885.

Why don't you make a breakout board instead of drilling holes on the existing PCB..

Buy those perfboard, those connector should fit nicely on them..

Perboard cost like RM2 per pieces and can be cut/saw easily..

Read / search thru this thread, I snap a photo of the back of the PCB and bm2000 identified the lose solder ( soldah is his "slang" ), I re-flow it ( put more solder and re-melt the existing solder for a complete connection ) and it is working ever since..

It is not that difficult as it sounds but you would need some basic soldering skills and a soldering iron too..

Hey guys, wanna ask something, i got an Altec Lansing ACS 45.1. I wanna buy another 2.1 AL vs 4121 to connect both through splitter to pc...

1. Does the quality will be splitted also? Or it will remain the same?

2. Wanna ask from the experts, compare between both ACS 45.1 and VS 4121, which one better? in terms of bass, or tremble...or clear sound...because i know ACS sound very blur bit...

I can only answer question 1

it will not split the quality in half though. but in terms of volume power, it will reduce slightly

not sure but if both speaker amps differ in power,ohm,current,etc. it might interfere and one will benefit more than the other

VS 4121 has tweeters(clearer) but doesn't sound as good as 45.1 because the new models are all cost cut versions...

Thread revived, and my MX5021 is dead. tongue.gif

My 4.5 years MX5021 finally dead on last week. Turn on power with all the light on and volume control working, can hear background hiss sound, so output amplification stage should be intact.

Suspected input preamp stage is something wrong. Checked with no noticeable burn mark or cap leakage.

Now no time to DIY repair, just hook my satellite to the cheapo RM60 2.1 PC speaker to power it. Acceptable tho. laugh.gif

Do you have EQ on your sound card setting? if yes, find 30Hz~60Hz band, pull it down all the way or reduce your sub volume. Good quality movie the sound is full spectrum, alot of low thumbing bass, your speaker simply can't handle it. Not related to 1/4 volume or 4/4 volume, once the bass level exceed the sub driver capability, distortion will happen and so called pecah2 sound will heard.

Do basic troubleshooting first...

1. Check power supply working ok ?

2. Check audio cable working ok ? Replace with another cable...

3. Plug in other audio source to the speakers

4. PM to beggarmaster2000

I used Altec Lansing FX5051 for 4 years. Now the speakers was broken down which shock by electricity. I was replaced the fuse inside but still not working. However, I feel very disappointed to choose Altec Lansing. The quality is bad and cover behind the subwoofer was broken and it was delivering broken distortion bassy sound. The sound still broken even how hard I screw the cover up tightly. The center vocal speakers will deliver distortion broken sound.

For the subwoofer, I have to push the cover hard to disable the distortion bassy sound. Their design is really disappointed. Why they want to make a plastic cover behind the subwoofer? When I volume the sound higher, the distortion deliver out because the cover did not seal properly. All the winds are blowing out from the cover.

This is what I was experienced. Now, my speakers was broken down. I am deciding to wait for my salary to buy a new set of Edifier speakers. Perhaps S530D or S730. I don't want 5.1 system since it is really useless. I just want to listen to songs. I have playing PC games at sometimes because mine is gaming PC with SLI nvidia graphic cards.

somewhere the cover deliver distortion sound,

no more Altec Lansing, in the future, don't choose Altec Lansing anymore. especially for the current 2011 new models. all the quality is bad, all made by low cost materials in the factory from China.

next time, if you want to buy a PC speakers, please ensure the cover behind the subwoofer must be made by full cover of metal but not just simply the small plastic cover like FX5051 above.

Randomly found this thread...

I have Altec Lansing 5100 5.1 speaker system...it's still working till today and I left it in Ipoh. Another would be Altec Lansing ATP3 2.1 speaker system still working till now. I'd must say that these days, the quality has dropped down.

Oh no, I've accidentally dropped my MX5021 controller from my desk and now there's no sound at all. I really love this speaker, I bought it with my first salary 5 years ago :'(

Is it possible a broken controller can mute the sound? All the lights are good, I can even adjust the volume, bass and treble. But there's still no sound at all. However, I can't use my remote (haven't use it for a very long time and I thought it went to standby mode due to the drop so I tried using the remote to un'standby' it, but it seems the remote can't even control the volume).

Any suggestion? Hopefully I don't have to send it to KL, I'm at Kelantan.

I'm going to open the controller this weekend, hopefully I'd notice something (I've no experience with any board). If I still can't find the problem, I'll just send it to any technician. Was hoping you guys can give some suggestion on what to look for. I'd post the board pic if I have to.

haha i went on holidays
altecs are real easy to repair with the electronic repair shop....
just the parts are pain in ass to find

it's hell alot more economical to send it to repair shop... prolly rm50 to 'join back the wires'

i'm just a modder/collector... i have some upgrade parts for sale occasionally but repairs are best left to the experts

I've owned a FX5051 surround system for four years and I love the system, but unfortunately the DIN plug on the controller got bent during the move from Arizona to Montana. I would like to know if there's anything that I can do to get the system back up again. I already called tech support and they couldn't find another controller, and I myself haven't been able to find another one ether. Is there anything that I can do to get this fixed, and is it even worth asking a computer repair shop if they can fix it?

shouldn't be a problem to ask a computer store to fix it lol.
or any electrical store will do, if they have that DIN plug.

a few bucks and your speaker will revive

just make sure they got the wires on the right prong of the plug wink.gif

Hy to all, i`m a new user with a bit of a problem, i have a Altec Lansing VS2120 with a bad volume knob, it "crackles" when i turn it and i have to spin it very, very, very gentle so i can find a position which both speaker will work. I want to fix this problem but i cant seem to find a way to take it apart.

Attached Image

I`ve tried poking it where i draw the orange box with no success, i`ve looked for screws, but none found, only managed to pull out the speaker.


Thanks in advance smile.gif

here's a hack!
bend the pins to correct position using a small pliers
in event of broken pins, just cut a small needle size of pin, poke into female and trim it a little poking out.
connect the connectors tightly together. it might crackle but it'll work.....

wd40 damages plastic parts and makes your set greasy. instead use alcohol.....
drip a copious amount into seams of volumer and tweak it all the way up and down roughly and fast until the alcohol evaporates. repeat until satisfactory
if you can't get alcohol... lighter fluid (zippoi fluid) will do just as good

lols... i tot that was the aim of the wd-40?
to dissolve the impurities~

ah nvm... alcohol is not as efficient as I've tried lighter fluid it works better.

not sure why but maybe because methylated spirit evaporates too quickly? I dunno...
I just find original zippo lighter fluid works fine much better than wd-40

I got mine FX5051 controller in good condition. My FX5051 was shocked by electricity due to unstable voltage. Something inside the subwoofer was burned. I was tried to replace a new T250mA fuse but still is not working, the speaker was dead. The speaker was served me with 4 years, I was just replaced a set of new speaker.

My FX5051 remote control and the wired controller were unused. However, you says that you move your speaker from Arizona to Montana. Here is Malaysia, sorry I can't help you.

My wild guess is that the power supply/transformer is burnt.. without any pictures of the circuit board/transformer.. it is just a guess..

Try sniffing the parts and smell which ones are burnt ...

I think when most people who google for AL speaker repairs, google points to this thread... since so many many people ( including myself ) was asking questions on how to repair our old AL speakers ... others would just throw it away and go out and buy a new sets of speakers...

Somehow a see a lot of people asking questions on how to repair their AL speakers here...

I don't know how i could've missed your answer, but the problem isn't with pins. they're actully in good shape, it's the connections between the wires and the pins inside the plug thats the problem. that's why I've been asking if anyone here knows where I could get the pin-out on this plug.

open up the pod and use multimeter to test connectivity between the wire and the plug pin itself? you can get the pinout yourself for each colour. from the pinout, you can mate a new cable and a new din plug. i did this for my speaker.

My Speaker MX5021 the volumn control device can turn on got light but just no sound come out from the speaker and woofer.
Previously my volumn control device already cannot adjust the volumn, i only can adjust the volumn to use the windows application volumn to adjust the volumn, but now totally no sound come out at all even i use software to adjust the volumn.
I suspect is the volumn control device problem, becasue i try plug in the headset to the device, it no sound also.

Any idea where can repair ?

Ban Leong rejected to repair due to they said EOL and no spare part to repair..

Same here, my MX5021 just dead yesterday night...
The failure started with months ago....

Initially --> Unable to do volume control correctly, from 1 light turn to 2 light, same volume. Turn to 3 light, suddenly speaker bang with 3 light volume level
Slowly --> Totally unable to do volume control, after several power on/off, plug/unplug cable, it works back. Intermittent no sound when power on/off
Finally --> Totally no sound, no matter how you tried to power on/off, plug/unplug, it is helpless...

just bought an altec lansing VS2621 .. impressive sound with its low price tag .. RM185 only at harvey norman .. nice ~ not being too choosy but this seems like a good buy compared to other brands ..closest to this is the E3100 from edifier but decided to go with the altec lansing branding since lots of my friend are using AL and recommend it to me hehehe tongue.gif

Happy owner of VS4621 but the treble was not really doing well~
(maybe its my problem or what)
i feel like the bass are performing over the clarity~
Any users facing this problem?

Hi guys, did you all used audio enhancer program like DFX ? I had a full version *ehem ehem* DFX for WMP .. I think this program works really well in fine tuning our speakers .. without this program, the song sounds dull but once you activate the prgram, it sorts of open up the overall audio range feeling like its more wide and clear, no more flat and boring sound .. you guys should try it .. about 3mb only the file ..

I have full range full unlocked of DFX audio enhancer for every single player hahahhaha (man... I love boasting tongue.gif )

but then... the dfx is messing up the trebles badly and the bass is just distortion that made it sound huge and powerful.


I thought it was awesome but it's not really that amazing.

it works for cheap standard usb speakers and super low quality MP3 like 96kbps or internet radio streams but if you are using CD quality you get downgrades instead of upgrades.

I would recommend SRS audio sandbox but that also ruins the music (but it's slightly better than DFX audio enhancer though wink.gif )

playing it with ATP3 and I find clean sound better than DFX

Yes it does mess up the trebles abit so I prefer to tweak my own settings on fidelity, 3D surround and ambient option .. to make the song sounds more natural, not too studio like .. hyperbass, dynamic boost disabled ..

anyway I've found something new for myself with this vs2621.. when watching movies & live concert vids that I've watched a thousand times before with the subwoofer .. really sounds different ... entertainment leveled up xD

My Speaker MX5021 the volumn control device can turn on got light but just no sound come out from the speaker and woofer.
Previously my volumn control device already cannot adjust the volumn, i only can adjust the volumn to use the windows application volumn to adjust the volumn, but now totally no sound come out at all even i use software to adjust the volumn.
I suspect is the volumn control device problem, becasue i try plug in the headset to the device, it no sound also.

Any idea where can repair ?

Ban Leong rejected to repair due to they said EOL and no spare part to repair..

Same here, my wired remote can turn on with light but no sound come out, due to EOL product and can't found any replaceable remote control cry.gif

Anyone here know any idea how to fix the issue? Suspect the remote control IC problem....

Hear a lot bad feedback for MX6021 and need to think twice before I enter the new set of speaker with same remote control issue again rclxub.gif

Same here, my MX5021 just dead yesterday night...
The failure started with months ago....

Initially --> Unable to do volume control correctly, from 1 light turn to 2 light, same volume. Turn to 3 light, suddenly speaker bang with 3 light volume level
Slowly --> Totally unable to do volume control, after several power on/off, plug/unplug cable, it works back. Intermittent no sound when power on/off
Finally --> Totally no sound, no matter how you tried to power on/off, plug/unplug, it is helpless...

Seems like all MX5021 ended its life in this way...

If u still love the sound from your speaker and dun want to waste it, u can try my method, happy modding. smile.gif

Anyhow I revived my MX5021.
What I did is just open up the controller, checking connectivity, seems good.
Then I open up my subwofer, add the heatsink + thermal paste on the voltage regulator,
change all the thermal paste on the volume control IC,
after that, it is back to rocks XD

Sorry to bother, never considered normal speaker setups before as I've always relied on my headphones. Mind recommending me the cheapest 2.0 or 2.1 setup available for Altec Lansing that you are comfortable recommending? For use with laptop.

I'm considering anything below 200, while anything below 400 should technically be possible.

Yes I know I'm bumping all these threads, but the general recommendation topic hasn't been updated in awhile and the prices are all over the place.

Recently "found" back my old beloved ATP3 but it is no longer working. There are alot of "pssssshhh" sound came out from the satellite and nothing plays out of the speaker.

I'm thinking if any of you know if there are any shops out there that fixing PC speakers? Hope to get it revived sad.gif

Anyway, I have bought a VS4621 after found out that the ATP3 is no longer functioning. Speaker material of VS4621 is abit disappointing but SQ is still acceptable.
