…but who makes a tube preamp with a warranty clause that says if you change the tube you void said warranty? You’d think you could just unscrew that glass thing and just change the preamp yourself. Is there something that has to do with biasing or something like that which makes this not a DIY task?
I bought this brand new a year ago. Aren’t preamps usually one of the last things to break in a studio? I mean, on my MOTU and on my Presonus the power supply and firewire ports died long before I lost a single preamp on either of those. On an avid, even the word clock chip failed before a single preamp went down.
