Overheated loudspeakers spurs recall of audio receivers

The Niles Audio Corporation of Miami, FL has voluntarily recalled about 3800 of its ZR-6 MultiZone-brand audio receivers, manufactured in China.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), a failure in the receiver’s internal components can cause connected loudspeakers to overheat and cause a fire, posing a fire hazard to consumers.

Niles reports that it has received notice of three incidents of connected loudspeakers overheating, but no cases of injuries to consumers.

The recalled audio receivers were sold by audio/video/home theatre custom installation professionals nationwide from July 2008 through November 2009 for about $2000.
