Thx very much for your responses & suggestions.
Actually, I'm sure there is nothing wrong with them as I bought it from a local dealer & I know the salesman very well, and it was powered up when I was there, just didn't notice it then.
I tend to agree with Budrew, they look to have a light bright greenish blue tint to them, and I think you're correct they can't be turned off short of unplugging the bulbs(not a good solution, same as a dish cloth :( ... )
Also tinted glass isn't an option either as it is on an amp stand, eqip. rack problematic ...
Also I don't want to screw around with putting a resistor in there,as I don't know what I'm doing ( my friend & salesman does, but not as it is new now,maybe later)
But I will call McI and ask them about the gel replacment (and if it is a problem to change)
I'm not saying it looks bad or is too bright( it's not, it's beautiful ), just that in it's current postion and during late night DVD movie watching , it is very distracting & annoying.
But THX Again for your info...
1 MORE Thing.
I am currently using a Shunyata Powersnake Diamondback power cord on the 6900, and am thinking/planning to get the Audience power cord for the 6900 and putting the Diamondback on my CDP. I've heard this would be an inexpensive and very good upgrade for the MA6900 ...
What are your thoughts on this ( This is all in CDN $, so the costs here are much higher for even inexpensive US$ cables.
Thx again in advance for your help on this.
Regards , TK
