My AudioDock break out box for my Emu 1820M just gave up last week!!!
drop outs, noise burst, poofs and crackles …
Eventually I found this topic over at productionforums.com:
I unsoldered and resoldered two blown caps and I’m up and running again! About $2 and an hour’s worth of work.
And the degradation must have been gradual because with the new caps … the sound stage is like better than new! Wider deeper, more ooomph in the bass, clearer treble, better imaging, better … BETTER!
It must have been horrible two weeks ago?
If you have a Emu card and you are not about to change just yet you owe it to yourself to check that place out!
Shockful of all kinds of info for not only Emu owners!
Life is gooood!
