    I bought a spare input board for my 14000 amp direct from their parts dept. However I never used it because it was not the board that was giving trouble at the time. The amp started to give trouble again so I decided to put in the board. It never worked so they replaced it. The replaced one never work also so I ordered another through one of their repair agent. It never worked also. They advised me to ship the amp to one of their repair shops, saying it maybe another issue with it. The repairers told them that the input board is not compatible with the older model amps and it is for the newer models. They refused to take back the two boards and closed my case leaving me with two useless boards. Spending $4000 US for a amp and having these problems does not worth it. Better to buy chinese knockoffs because they help you with parts that can repair their amp.

      Dale_M In hindsight it may have been better to have organise a non warranty repair with an official Lab Gruppen approved repair centre, if you still require assistance please go to the Support tab above and select Service so our team can advise you of your options.

      The amp is at an approved centere in the USA and they are the ones that determine the input boards are not compatible with the older model 14000 amps and the parts department refused to take back the boards. I have two useless boards and a huge bill to repair the amp. That could have been resolved where the amp is used in the Caribbean had they sold me a compatible board in the first instance. If you update the board you suppose to know if it will work on older model amps.
