AD2K+ service and bench test reply: FYI
« on: February 01, 2013, 10:49:28 AM »
I just bought a used ad2k+.  I think it will work fine, but do you do any kind of bench test or still service them?
Thanks!

Hello Mark,
 We can still service them, however, parts are becoming scarce. If the unit works, it shouldn't require anything. What I mean is, there isn't any 'tune-up' or anything necessary.
A great unit. Enjoy.
                             Best regards,

Yup, it's a power hog but performs nicely.

Did u pick this up on eBay recently? There was one for sale for over a month for $500. I tried to pick it up for $400 but I couldn't get him to go any lower than $450. I already own one wanted a 2nd:-) I paid $1795 for mine brand new over 10 years ago.
Regards,
Jim

No, I bought mine from TONEDEAF and he grabbed that one.  FUNNY story I guess... Wow 1800$  The ad2k+ must be good if you want 2 of them.

I had serious sellers remorse after selling it to Mark, so I kept looking at that ebay listing and within a week of putting the box in the mail, I took the money Mark sent me and put it right back into another one.  Yeah, funny story, but I'm glad I got it back in the bag.
