    Anybody know if Sire revised or upgraded their pre-amp on the v7 at any point?

    I got a scratch on my control cover but Sire would not sell it alone, it comes with the pre-amp replacement so I just bought the entire thing. Any how, the new pre-amp seems a little different and I am wondering if I should go ahead and replace my current one if this is an upgraded pre-amp. Trying to get ahold of Sire support also

    Received a gift from Sire* (see sig)
    There are differences in the board layouts, they've moved towards "everything one one board" over time, but I'm fairly certain the circuitry behaves the same across all of them, I have 5 now, old and new, and the preamps all seem the same though I'm sure there are layout differences (to fit the different bass formats).
