RMX-16 repair ?

Can anyone steer me to someone who can repair my ailing AMS RMX-16 reverb? The unit passes a white-noisy hash only when receiving input.

Thanks
Bill

Yes, the noise is on both channels only when the unit is receiving input. At idle, there is no noise. It kinda points to the single A-D card, maybe. I've had all the cards out and cleaned their edge contacts, but had no spray to clean the sockets as well, I used compressed air to at least blow the dust out.

Is this guy Howard Jones? I've tried to e-mail him, but so for, no reply. Sorry to hear that yours is on the fritz as well, Jules.

LooKing through old invoices for his info.. Be ready to pay! Depending on location, the back and forth can be expensive. He did get mine back up an running but left out some things on my list of fixes and ended up selling at a lose considering the unit plus repairs, then again if the AMS is your go to sound what's a few extra bucks.

Old haggle, the Klark DN780 can be tweaked to approximate the AMS on those thunder toms it does so well. The M4000 has some AMS nonlinear presets that with a little work also approximate.

The old AMS cards just don't travel well after all these years and who can blame them, I don't either.
