Default MF x10v3

Having open up one of these beasts it's clear to see that the four transistors in the output are cooking the pcb. There is considerable disclouration of the pcb track [tranies using these to sink heat away from themselves]. If this is left unchecked it may cause failure of the unit.

I would use a heatsink like rs part 507-4753 .

I've bought this up as a "heads up" for anyone who has this unit, and therfore should check it out.


I have search but found nothing !

that's because mf is a pile of shiite, its made in taiwan now for chicken shittt money,

...whilst michaelson pays himself millions, if he lied about class A, can you trust him?

he also doesn't use his own turntable, still a thorens 124, as the mf isn't good enough.
