I am really sorry to hear about all of your trouble's with the MAD EAR, hopefully it will all get sorted and arrive back to you safely this time.
If you have to clean your amp again, use lighter fluid as it will not harm the paint....according to Dr. Peppard.
Trust me, when everything gets sorted...you are going to love this amp, paired with your RS1i.
Thanks whirlwind, I appreciate your positive thinking. I'm most sure when I get it back this time it should be fine, and then I'm sure I'll enjoy the combo together, being I had a little taste of the combo and did enjoy the two together. I usually clean all of my equipment with alcohol pads, but this time like I said, it took the paint right off and I couldn't believe it. I'm sure you looked into the cleaning with lighter fluid, but that really surprises me. I think the next time I clean the Ear+ I'll use some windex or pledge. Have you ever cleaned your Ear+ with the lighter fluid? I so how did it come out?
