Re: M-500T light burn out

Rita at Bob Carver's Audio Service here in Snohomish should be able to fix it. I believe the minimum fee is $120 but that includes bench testing, inspection and re-calibration.

Keep in mind that amp is 30 years old, if it hasn't been re-calibrated or serviced you can cause major damage, just sayin' :-s
