Don't you have a return-refund timeframe even for 2nd hand sold equipment from the dealer?

well it usually happens when it doesn't read right voltage off the voltage regulator. to be more precise the circuit will not 'open' till it sees the right voltage. thus voltage regulator(often single ic) is often the one to replace. ask manufacturer if that is a common problem and what they recommend to do or offer to do if you decide to fix it on your own. if you try and try to troubleshoot yourself, be noted that you may leave noticeable traces of 'invasion' and it may block you from sending it back for refund or different unit.
I was told it was a pin hole in the transformer case? Apparently damaged during transit? I would have thought the transformer was securely bolted to the chassis, shouldn't be loose objects travelling around in the case. Anyhow the dealer was great and is getting me a new one, should be here in 2 weeks.
Glad it turned out nicely, but pin hole in transformer case seems to be "found something to say". Dealer doesn't repair your unit so he/she may not know what was really wrong while techie may explain something like that to secure one's business or job security.
As you know, English is spelled differently than pronounced. Same principal was honestly followed when pronounced "pin hole in the transformer case". Trust me the spelling is entirely different :-).
Well the new Audia Flight arrived today. Wow!! It's supposed to need several hundred hours run in. I can't imagine what can get better than this? I am now officially in audio Nirvana, the Ayre MXR and KXR are run in and the Audia flight is the Cherry on top.
This one works perfectly, can't imagine what is still to come. The Sim Audio, while brilliant is no mach for this. Great dealer! Thanks GrooveWorks.
Dinster, glad to hear that your AF is back and running great. I also purchased mine used and worry about repairs in the future if needed. So far it sounds great. I leave it in standby mode so I don't have to reach around the back of the power supply to keep turning it on and off. Mine takes about 2 minutes to power up, go from blinking to solid LED. It seems like a long time to put on the first record but it is worth it once I start playing. I don't know if you have an upgraded PC to your AF, but I do notice an improvement with one. I also use RCA output since I already had the cable. Best of luck with your repaired AF.
Now after 2 months audiophillia nervosa sets in:) What loading do you use with MC cartridges. There are "bizarre" loadings built into the Audia Flight. 6 between 0 and 100 Ohm, and then a huge gap to 900 Ohm. Currently I am running an Atlas at 100 Ohm loading, didn't like it that much at 900, is it worth trying resistors for values between 100 and 900? The 900 Ohm seemed to suck the life out of the music, didn't try it for very long. My cable from headshell to phono has a 80pF capacitance. The sound is just sublime, but .... maybe it could be better?
