Bump .  
Hi Guys,   I was hoping someone could help me narrow down what failed on my Forte so I can go about repairing it.  I recently had my Forte die when it started outputting a rhythmic beating, coupled with heavily distorted audio (you can't hear anything at all until the volume is cranked up) along with very loud intermittent pops.  This occurs not only on the ANALOG 7.1 out but also the pre-amped out for headphones.  I have taken the board out and tried in different...
