Re: the Lightstar pre on Ebay

I wouldn't mind a Lightstar case though for a DIY amp lol... would make a really nice chassis for sure! But not at that price LOL..... I have two bricked lightstar pre's. What's the chassis worth to you? I say that now unless this Bill Flannery fella comes through with some programming options. Nat...

Re: End of an Era

Magnaryder, how did you replace the chip the first time? I have two dead lightstar pre's and one new chip. Talked with Bob awhile back but nothing ever came of it as far getting the chip programmed.

Re: Lightstar Owner Registration

So, I have been having an issue lately in my setup with my right channel cutting out. I have narrowed it down. It is the amp. I have swapped out every cable, taken the preamp out, everything. I am very worried and not sure what to do. Any advice?

Re: Lightstar Owner Registration

Still waiting. Have you devised an ingenious plan to get one programmed?

Re: Broken Lightstar Amp on eBay

I have a lightstar pre with the same problem as that one on eBay. It's the QQHF9614 chip on the display control board. I contacted Bob about getting a new one programmed. Haven't heard back yet. If you figure out a way let me know. I am getting some cutting out in my right speaker now. I think I hav...

Re: Lightstar Owner Registration

This post has been awfully quiet. Odd for it being about an amp with this much power. Looking back at that bakers rack makes me chuckle. Hope everyone is well. Keep on rockin'.

Re: Lightstar Owner Registration

Just got an email from THE Bob Carver. He may be able to help me with the chip I need for the second lightstar preamp. This is one of the most awesome things to happen to me!!!!!

A family portrait. It's good to see them all together again.

Re: Lightstar Owner Registration

Built my new rack this past weekend. It's not completely finished yet. I still need to trim some length off the top of the threaded rods. I love the look of it and the amount of space it provides is just what I needed. Got the Bellari VP130 phono pre on loan from the shop. I like the sound so far. D...

Re: Lightstar Owner Registration

A little update for ya. Took my parasound pre and EQ down to my local favorite shop today. They gave me a decent amount for the units in store credit. With that and the store credit I already had I brought home a Rega RP-1 TT today. It is hooked up, albeit with a cheap phono pre, and my vinyl is sou...

Re: Lightstar Owner Registration

I haven't been able to play too much with it. I have the tuner hooked up and other than that all I have is a digital signal running to it so far. I had the CT-6 pre hooked up to it before and it was definitely less forgiving with sub-par recordings. I am, hopefully going to be picking up a new Rega ...

Re: Lightstar Owner Registration

So, everything is hooked up and running beautifully. I have a temporary rack set up while I get everything finalized for the new rack to be built. This old kitchen bakers rack works out pretty well though.

Re: Lightstar Owner Registration

OK, yes it is after midnight. No, I am not tired. I did however just test the three RCA inputs on the preamp. The woman is asleep so there was no rocking out but all three input channels function properly. The only problem I have right now is that my current rack setup will not hold both the amp and...

Re: Lightstar Owner Registration

Got my PRH-2 remote in the mail today from Kingman. A HUGE THANK YOU goes out to him. I have not hooked anything up other than power yet but it does light up and switch between sources. The chassis is in rough shape, lots of scratches some deeper than others. I don't care to much though right now. I...
