I just had two IC's on one of the cards replaced by a friend here in town who owns an audio company, so it works fine. He builds preamps & is a qualified tech, so it only took him about 15 min. to do this. I cleaned all the pots & switches I could get to & when I put the card back in, I missed a pin, which burned up the IC. He replaced both just to make sure. You can look at my intro post from Feb. to see the specific card-not sure what it does, as I'm only using this for 2 channel & everything did & still works fine.
Anyway, my username is the same on Audiogon & Audio Asylum, so if you need to verify, contact me through those sites.
The pic is from the garage where the pre has been for a few weeks & I'll prob. take it out sometime this week & get some more pics.
I'm in central VA & an audition is fine, although my main system is powered by a Primare integrated.
One last thing-I don't use paypal.
