my 4240's faceplate has a very small charge to it, is this normal? I know all metal construction probably would but still just wondering...

I've wondered about this on my SA-8500 as well. Never bothered to get it looked at (if it ain't broke... rolleyes.gif)

I'm leaning towards it might be normal but then again... it's very slight like just a tingle

I was actually getting this on my laptop as well, I discovered that it only occurred when it was plugged into one outlet of my apartment (near my desk). A quick check revealed that the outlet is not grounded... rolleyes.gif

 

My Pioneer on the other hand has only a 2-prong plug, so I'm not sure what's causing it. The only problem I've had with it was the DC offset (almost 1 volt when I first got it, down to 14mv now, those adjustment pots work wonders).

 No, not normal at all.

I see LaFayette gear fairly regularly down south. Very good value for the quality and features. IMHO not on the same level as similar name-brand equipment, but has every potential to be good. Also, usually costs about 1/5th-1/10th as much as similarly spec'd name brand stuff.

I find that same concept with Realistic receivers.  Found a nice one for $15 that sounded awesome through the headphone jack.

Currently sniping a Thorn 4024 on eBay. Looks sweet.

As far as I know, Lafayette models you can look after are:

LR-9090, 5555 2020, they are Setton RS-660,440.220 inside. Some claims they were built by Pioneer, some says Fostex.

Another is LR-120DB, their biggest one which was built by Luxman.

Interesting info, thanks!

 

 I have read in the past that the Lr-5555a was Luxman built, but no conformation could be found.

So I solved the bass impact problem on my KA 907. I switched out the diy pre amp to amp jumpers in the back with some nice DiMarzio interconnects. This amp is now thumping as it should. I would now say this is the best amp I own. Definitely a step above the KA 8100 I was raving about yesterday. I also listened to my new LCD 3 for the first time on the KA 907 last night. I had thought the LCD 3 was a bit fluffy. It was very solid and impactful on the KA 907. Glad I picked up this amp when I had the chance and will be looking for a backup in the coming years or maybe a supreme 600. cheers!!
