    Hi, did anybody get to the bottom of this, I have similar problems with gain on preamps, did anybody find out what the 24v mod was or the 10 euro fix kit.

    Any help would be great.

    Still actual? I might look up the kit code

    So, the kit exists, according to A&H tech, but getting it in my country was impossible! It technically would have cost me €35 a set (needed 2) and A&H UK told me to talk to their distributor in my country and purchase it from them!

    I got in touch with them, they told me it is available, gave me the price, I agreed and put in a written order. They told me it would take 3-4 weeks because they don’t have a lot of shipments in that period, I agreed because I’ve been sitting on the issue for a while and could wait another month. Long story short, despite calling every other week and being told that it missed the shipping or whatever BS reason, after 6 months I gave up. I started the process in January 2018… It’s been 18 months.

    Anyway, finally asked a friend who is a wiz with electronics and he was able to check and fix all of them, the cost was about €20 plus labor (which he didn’t tax me for) but he did tell me it was a bit of a headache to unsolder the old broken parts and solder the new ones… Lack of Pb in the solder made it difficult!

    Anyway, not sure how to help you, but I would recommend finding a good electronist and I understand that the parts are generic so if he/she knows what they are doing, it should be an easy fix!

    That is true, the parts are really catalog items, nothing fancy.
