Harman Kardon Citation I Preamp Left Channel (Phono) Not Working
Has anyone had experience in fixing a Harman Kardon Citation I preamp? The left channel of the phono section stopped working one day. I opened the panels to take a peek inside in an attempt to see if there's a loose connection somewhere. Well, HK employs the pc board approach (instead of point-to-point). There were wires upon wires criss-crossing each other. It was impossible to get to the innards without disassembling the whole thing!
Has anyone successfully taken apart the whole thing and put it back together? I can't even find someone (reputable) who is able to fix a Harman Kardon Citation. This is very depressing as, since the incident, I have been listening to my record albums with my "other" stereo set up (without a phono section) via an old Radio Shack phono stage (a puny little 2"x4" gadget). Needless to say, the sound is less than ideal. I have stopped listening to record albums since (yes, after listening through a Citation, nothing else will do as the music has lost that "concert hall" sound).
