Is it just me, or is the preamp on the Ashbory extremely weak, even with a new battery? It has less output than a passive Precision. This isn't a problem, but it's not far from being one...a curiosity, I suppose. When I bagged a B-100R (specifically for the Ashbory) this weekend, I noticed that I had to have the amp gain nearly pegged before the Ashbory produced clipping, and this was into the -0dB channel, not the attenuated "active input" one. I've seen numerous actives with trimpots on the PCBs to raise or lower output, but after pulling the Ashbory's, I see it does not. Just a simple circuit running a TL071 OpAmp. Anyone else ever notice this? Has it been a problem? As always, thanks for any help.
