I ran and pulled plugs but it was too late! The CFamp has no power on the high voltage side of the power transformer and the output transformers have no continuity across them. It ruined all of the power supply caps, no continuity across any of them in the CF amp.
On the bright side, the other CF amp is fine.
My insurance company is working on a settlement.
Bitch of it is I just replaced the processor in my Lightstar pre, it's a doorstop....again....GGRRRRRRRR!
I want to try to buy the pieces for salvage, maybe they can be parted out to save another Lightstar. This SUCKS!!!
