Jack, that is almost unbelievable, have a lot of lightning strikes there? Over the years I've owned 9 Levinson amps and never ever had a single problem, it's the most reliable gear I've ever owned. At one time I even had 5 333's in a wacked out theater system, no problems. In fact, the 333 remains one of my favorite amps. Good Luck, and I'm sure you'll have no problems receiving help from Madrigal. Chuck

I have a 331 that has had no problems. I am wondering if it it is best (i.e. longer life) to leave the amp on "ON" or on "STANDBY" when not in use. Also, [email protected] do you know how old your friends 331 is that he has had problems with and was it still under warranty when he shipped it back to Madrigal?
I've got a 332 that is about 4 years old. I didn't have any trouble withthe amp until we moved last summer. After the move I hooked everyting up an had a hum in the left channel. As it turned out, a cap was shot. My dealer replaced it and I've had no trouble since. Remember these things are machines and all machines eventually break down. It is unfortunate that it happens to an expensive piece of Hi-Fi gear, but I think Levinson will take care of you.
