Default pass labs x2-1

Hello I see that it is almost impossible to get the pcb of the preamplifier.
My question is will the board could get any updates
X2 or X3. It also occurred to me to ride this frame something today
but I really like this before as it sounds, I could advise.
a greeting

It's not too difficult to simply get a repair, the damage you have described
is largely cosmetic to the board. Are you willing to spend a lot of money
to have a fresh looking board, or do you just want it to sound good?

If I remember correctly the amp still works but has a constant hiss/noise in the one or both channels.
Miguel didn't reply on my last e-mail to him regarding this question.
I offered him a complete repair for free just to because I want this amp to remain original and because he also lives in Europe.

It's up to him now!

Miguel if you want to keep it in Spain, make sure it's fixed by a technician with great appreciation for high-end equipment

Mail me if you need my help.

Regards,

Josť

Thanks Jose, I think that I can fix, I ordered some parts
but I have some doubts as the bridge on the zener or bottom of pcb
the transistor Q5 is a zener and a resistor, I would like to know naps components are an improvement or I move through the circuit?
thanks.

Miguel

if you're not confident in what you are going to do , you can make much greater damage to preamp .
leave that to someone who is skilled in these things
X2 deserve that
