Persons. I am a driver not a mechanic so when things go wrong, I need to call in the heavies to show/teach/fix. With a Mac there's less of that I've noticed.

I tend to classify people and computers into the same group, its just that people are classified as computers that need a good bash on the head. And run Win 98. The ones who drink run Win 95, when they black out thats a BSOD.

In either case, all humans are 486SX's (with no math co-processor, unless you're especially gifted at maths, you probably run linux anyway so you're more efficient) and have 8MB of random access memory and about 1GB of storage memory.

And when people do maths they run that little TSR program that emulates a math co-processor and slows everything down, under DOS.

blue car !

amp in question is a monster - DYNACORD PCA 2344

+/-94Vdc PSU , 4 channels , active xover , some sort of "processor" (even if that's word game for versatile xover blahblah)

400W per channel , each having 5 pairs of 2SJ/2SK Toshibas , so 40 pcs overall

3KW5 of xformers

after usual checkup for oscillation , one bloody channel is misbehaving - couldn't set Iq without going in heavy 150Vpp sine in MHz range on output

nothing suspicious , at least wwith measuring

whatever - cleaned (several times ) both sides of pcb with alcohol and brush , checked all traces with lens , reflowed all solder joints ;

nada

after that , replaced all caps on pcb , desolder each resistor , test it , put it back

swapped all semis to other ( functional channel )

still nada

original lag comp cap is 1p8 across 39K !

ook!

replaced it with two 1p2 in series and now everything is OK

I wanna now - whoTF is a guy who made that pcb ........

3 days of dull and boring swappin'-cleanin'-power on/power off work ........

Dumb ZM

What you need is another holiday...perhaps a visit to Austria? Sit around eating good pastries, drinking good coffee,...smoking. Sounds better than being inside that monster!
