Default sounds good; i'll will reach out to you in 2 weeks

since you have 1 complete system; you can use that to test the other control centers to confirm if they do/do not work.

That is sort of the plan. They all have to be checked 1st, don't want to blow up the good system.

Default MH-502 system finally complete!!!

Got home today to see a pile of parcels on the stairs - great news!

One was a box from the USPS - the only thing it could be was a puck, power supply and sub for a MH-502 system. For which I've had the satellites for years!

Opened the box. Rattling noise. Oh-oh! Out come screwdrivers - fortunately USPS had only managed to knock part of the port loose (old hot glue is, well, old).

Stuck it back on and back together. Dug out a 240 to 110 converter and fired it up. Nothing. Nada. Keine. Wobble the puck. Some crackling.

Bypass puck and feed the system directly - it lives!!!

Sally Whitwell hammering out Philip Glass on a Stuart and Sons wundermachine.

And it sounds great! (Ok. for a pokey PC set up) Lynn Olson might not be overly impressed but I'm wrapped! (or is it rapped?)

Still got to fix the puck, or replace it. But I'm happy (and there's no hum, unlike my system 9)
