Default Service CAV A8M

Doesnt happen very often so those who did it deserve the credit .

The CAV A8M comes into the shop badly burned since the costumer plays in the rough side i think probably too loud with heavy loads while the amplifier has been repaired ( badly also ) previously

Inside the notorious SAP 15-P-N inside a circuit that proper balance is very important to achieve stability .Seems that the amplifier has been repaired in the past more than once , probably by the local distributor , and wears inside all shorts of available versions of SAP 15 ...Obviously this is not the way to achieve stability .

On factory though the quality of make , order , symmetry and arrangement on the boards is exceptional for this type of product .After a quick argument with the local distributor who claimed that he never had a schematic a quick phone to Jenny and Ken proved to be a walk in the park and before i hung up the schematic was in my inbox .

That is a service minded company and in the feature i will never question getting a CAV product Already have a pair of speakers that i am thrilled with .

Well done Ken , Jenny thanks to your service minded policy the A8M is up and running again !

In between enjoy some pictures of the repair ...
Kind regards
