it sounds to me like there was some sort of manufacturing error made on
these units. What you describe is definitely not right. I would think
getting that hardware problem corrected on your EDPs would be the best
solution. Since it is about the gain stages, there is a chance the same
mods described in the EDP faq for old units will correct yours also:
If you are handy with a soldering iron you could probably do it yourself.
Or better, if you are handy with an ohmmeter you could check whether the
resistors in your unit match with what is described in the mod. Then you
will know if you need to do the mod or not. Otherwise, you should contact
Gibson's service department and get them to fix it. I believe Shane Radtke
is the person you want for that. his contact info is on the LD site at the
bottom of the echoplex section:
