    I'd call MESA direct but since they're closed Friday's I'll ask here.

    My newer model Strategy Eight:88 differs from the user manual in that the trim pot adjustment screw appears to have been replaced by a black knob located on top of the chassis. Can someone confirm this? Seems like it would be easy to accidently hit thus changing the setting.

    There are a couple of features on my model that are not shown/addressed in the user's manual supplied with the amp or online hence my inquiry.

    Thanks.

    Another reason for getting accurate info IMO.

    Ah, gotcha. Good point but no.
    The BOOST feature is another thing that appears on the new one's but not the older models.
