Amek 9098 Rupert Neve 2-Channel Microphone Preamp- Full David Rochester Service. I bought this recently knowing that it would need service, one channel had some intermittent noise. I sent the unit to David Rochester of Technical Audio Services. Rochester is the first and foremost Amek authority, and is the former Amek Technical Service Manager. Rochester carefully tested the unit and found that the switches on one channel were dirty.
He replaced all of the switches on both the left and right channel. Capacitors tested 100%, and the unit was thoroughly bench tested before it was sent back to me. Sonically and functionally, as expected, the preamp is perfect. Cosmetically, the unit is fairly clean, with some cosmetic wear to the plastic finish around the rack wings. The preamp has a wonderfully low noise floor, and has quite a pristine, transparent character.
