I bought a 9500ix a couple weeks ago and was using it fine in the car with internal speaker with no problems. today, I mounted it on my motorcycle and attached an 1/8th cable out of the earphone plug to run the sound into my Amplirider, which is a small audio mixer / headphone amplifier. At first it sounded fine, but within a few minutes the audio quality of the 9500 started to deteriorate.... as I started to investigate, I unplugged the cable from the 9500 and now there is no sound coming out of the internal speaker and no sound coming out from the earphone plug.
so the question is how did a 'fry' the audio of the unit all together? ...by simply connecting an audio cable to it.
I got impulsive and went to Best Buy and picked up another brand new 9500ix .... and it appears the exact same thing has happened to that one.
Is this a known issue? or do I have some kind of weird voltage issue that is travelling through the audio cable and causing this to happen....
