Yes, i'm very happy that i was able to solve this problem!
But i'm also happy that your the one that was answerring my questions because
reading some of your posts it looks to me that your also know what your doing!
I'm familiar with the front PCB's with defective ribbon cable connectors.
I was one of the first here in Holland that whas buying a Crown XTi amplifier and the three
common failures where the connection from heatsink to PCB, the ribbon cable and the firmware.
The first one i solved to make a connection (with a wire) to heatsink and PCB, the second i solved to
replace the whole ribbon cable with connectors for a better one. But i guess that you found these
modifications allready by yourself . The last one was waiting patiently for upgrades .
And i love the XTi and CDi (and i think the DSi, never worked with them) amplifiers. They sounded great,
are lightweight and i use them very often. Okay, they do not provide the 'punch' like the 'old school'
Macrotech amplifies did (they simply blow everything away with every size speaker) but i like them.
Even with a added DSP, they are very servicable and repairable for this kind of amplifiers.
No tricky class D amplifier but still an 'analog' amplifier with SMPS.
Also the DSP is not very hard to repair. I have the tools and skills to replace the LPC2142 chip,
and then its easy. Provide the LPC with new firmware is also very easy!
Love this amplifier, thats for sure! Thank you all!
(And sorry for bad English)
