I've now had it set up in the system for the past couple of weeks and all seems to be good with it. However, every now and then the left channel drops out upon switching the function control, but comes back when I rotate the switch back and forth a couple of times. I've been rotating the knob back and forth every chance I get in an effort to try and "clear it up", but it seems to reoccur randomly. There's no static that comes through while any function or knob is turned.
My thought is that the contacts just need to be cleaned again, but at the same time I'm wondering if there is anything else that could be suspect due to age or past damage that I should be looking for? The SH works fine, and there really only appears to be a couple of PCBs inside...no caps or such as in Amplifiers (AFAICT).
Is there anything else that I should be looking out for? I've thought about taking it up to Rita, but if it's just to clean a few contacts I can do that myself. On the other hand, if there is some potentially significant issue that needs addressing it would be nice to be aware of so that I can have it taken care of.
Other than this "minor" issue the C-1 performs very well, at least to my ears, and I'm really pleased with it. A much more broad and noticable SH circuit (still) than my CT-Seven, among other things.
Anybody have any thoughts or insights to share with me? I suppose one option would be to just call Rita to see about having a preventative maintenance check done on it...
Thanks for any advice.
