It sounds like it was dropped in shipping and one of the relays on the SMART board is in the incorrect state.  These are "latching" relays and being subjected to dropping can cause them to change state.

 

Luckily - there is a way to handle this.  If your customer uses a hammer and taps the right side of the enclosure (using sufficient force), that should get the relay to go back to the correct position, and then the unit should turn on.  He should do this when he hears the "clicking sounds" when he tries to turn it on.

 

I also recommend he uses something like a piece of wood between the hammer and enclosure so he does not scratch the enclosure.  But he needs to tap it fairly hard to reset the relay.

All the best,

In fact, no tapping required : it just did some reset of its own and works flawlessly now. 

 

I have to laugh at a manufacturer actually telling the customer to hit the product with a hammer. But hey, Vinnie knows what he's talking about.

You're in for a surprise : an old friend of my father's has been an Airbus pilot with Air France for 30 years (he's been captain on various aircrafts, from B767 to A320). Some days, the whole system was playing funny : when taxiing on a B767, he actually had several times an alarm signaling the nose wheel was turning left each time a passenger opened a toilet doorksc75smile.gif Of course, it was a bug, the wheel stayed straight, and the toilet door had no power to make it turn left. But the wiring got mad and the alarms went off.

The only way to reboot onboard computer systems was sometimes to hard switch the whole gizmo off, wait a dozen minutes

and fire it up again. No soft reset would do.

Sitting here for the last hour listening to my Balanced Isabellina HPA (Audeze Edition) with the new LCD-X's. 

 

Thoroughly enjoyable and sonically satisfying.

 

That is all.

Got a question about the Isabellina. Had a hard time time locating the answer, so I shall ask anyways:

 

Does it have software drivers to go with it, or does it work straight out of the box, hooked up to the PC? Also, does it support ASIO/WASAPI?
