Just an update.
I receved the replacement amp on Friday just as Klaus said I would (and for my trouble he included some really beautiful adjustable isolation cones!). I hooked the amp up and GONE was the buzz, totsl silence!!!
THEN I heard this terrible ZAP!, ZAP! sound!!! I'm thinking "what the hell is going on!!! Then I notice that there is no sound coming from the right speaker!!! I look behind the componet rack.... and a frickin inner connect that was dissconnected from my other 5ch amp had fallen down and made contact with the right speaker terminal on the back of the Stratos Amp, blowing the two fuses inside the amp!!!
OBVIOUSLY THIS WAS NO FAULT OF ODYSSEY OR KLAUS, JUST ME BEING AN IDIOT WHO WAS TOO EAGER TO SEE IF THE BUZZING HAD GONE AWAY, AND DIDN'T SECURE ALL THE OTHER CABLES SURROUNDING THE AMP. Life can be a real bitch sometimes.
I simply replaced the two fuses inside the amp, and all is good.
The amp is VERY nice indeed!!!
