    Well, after several years of on/off clicks, the power switch on my EBS Fafner has refused to click off. I emailed the EBS tech guy, Ron Silver, and he will replace the switch but doesn't sell them individualy. Anybody have a hint where to look? The places I found with Google didn't have an "Arcolectric" brand switch the amp has. I did find a distributer, but haven't heard back, and they weren't a retailer.

    Man I love this amp but the next one is going to have to be from an American company with easy to source parts.

    There was a known problem, acknowledged by EBS, regarding the failure rate of the power switches on some Fafner models (particularly the first and second generation). As a result, I actually had EBS pay for warranty work three times in two years on mine. EBS shipped switches to my local repair shop.

    I'd recommend you contact EBS to see what they recommend.
